    Laura had one thing that was really important to her when she came in looking for a dress and we were able to nail it on dress 3!  One of the things that we love most is being able to “read” a bride.  We can usually nail their dress pretty quickly.  Then it’s up to the bride to just let the magic happen and say yes! Tell me about the most special memory of your wedding day. Definitely getting ready for the day and then that initial walk into the church filled with all of my family and friends.

  • #adorerealbride // Hayley & Matt // family and friends

    Haley and Matt’s story is a little different for me than some others.  Why?  Because my husband is actually the one who married them and we got the joy of walking through premarital counseling with them.  These two are seriously some of my favorite human beings.  And when we would get together there were so many similarities in their personalities and the way they function together as with my husband and me.  So, it became such a blessing to share our story, or successes and our shortcomings with them.  So, take just a minute to enjoy these two beautiful people and their beautiful day!
