Erica + Tyler | Galia Lahav Wedding from Penny Dinn Photography


Held on the tropical Anini Beach on the north shore of Kauai, Erica and Tyler kept it intimate, having just a close selection family witness their wedding and even sharing their beach house venue with their guests. To suit the stunning scenery, Erica wore an incredible lace Galia Lahav gown, and Tyler wore a light linen suit. Surrounded by ocean and orchids they wove in many traditional Hawai’ian customs into their ceremony, including drinking from a coconut. Such a romantic wedding.

The Ceremony
Our very intimate ceremony just included our immediate family. The whole family stayed at the Anini Beach House for the week, and we married on the lawn overlooking the ocean. It was a traditional ceremony with many spiritual Hawaiian elements. Kelvin Ho delivered a beautiful, moving ceremony and everyone had tears in their eyes. Tyler and I washed our hands together from water from the conch shell to symbolize starting fresh. We also drank together from a fresh coconut (Kelvin cracked the coconut in front of everyone as part of the ceremony).

It rained all morning on the day of our wedding. The ceremony, dinner, and reception were all supposed to be outside on the lawn overlooking the beach. There was a lot of last minute scrambling getting tents, moving the bar inside, etc. The harpist did a small prayer for sunshine with Tyler before the ceremony, and minutes after that the clouds parted right before the ceremony was scheduled to start! The ceremony had clear skies and we were able to go ahead with the dinner on the lawn.  As we were heading inside for cake, it started to rain again. The weather cooperated just long enough for the entire ceremony and reception!

The Reception
For our reception, we stayed at the Anini Beach House and had a catered dinner and bar on the lawn. 

The best part was by the end of the week (because we stayed together) both families felt like one and the wedding was really the grand finale to seal that bond we created. Tyler wrote a poem for me that morning and read it at dinner, and that was the moment that my heart was filled to the brim with love for him and our families.  I wanted the whole wedding to feel intimate, classic and beautiful.

Why Erica Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
I am selling my wedding dress because I don’t think a dress this beautiful should sit in the closet for the rest of its life and should be shared.

Lemor + Adam | Lazaro Wedding from Maloman Studios


Lemor + Adam’s Miami wedding at the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens was a total treat for the senses.  Think garden glamor meets gold and satin grandeur galore! We love the breathtaking natural wood structure where the bride and groom exchanged vows and the eye-catching hanging glass balls created a lovely sense of wonder amidst lush gardens. Don’t miss Lemor’s beautifully textured ivory floral Lazaro bridal ball gown, complete with beaded bodice and rich layers of petals on the skirt with crystals in the center of each flower.  Enjoy!

The Ceremony
The ceremony took place in garden and we had a traditional Jewish ceremony. Our chuppah was particularly meaningful because we stood under three prayer shawls to represent our three late grandparents. The flowers were my favorite – hydrangea and a few orchids, and the natural wood structure went beautiful with the garden setting.

The Reception
Our reception was a blast! It took place outdoors under a tent on the east balcony of Vizcaya Mansion facing the water. Each table had it’s own unique flare – round, rectangular, satin tablecloths, sequin tablecloths, tall flower arrangements, short flower arrangements…it kept the space visually appealing. The DJ kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night. It was a night to remember!

Lemor’s Dress Search
I must have tried on ten to twenty lace fit-and-flare dresses and none of them felt like the one for me. My mom kept saying I should try on a ball gown and I said no because I’m not a “girly girl” and I didn’t think I’d like it. As I was looking at a dress I had on at Kleinfeld’s that wasn’t cutting it, a sales lady walked back to the stock room to return a big poofy ball gown. I stopped her and said, “Mom, what do you think?” She sarcastically said, “Haha, very funny,” when I was completely serious about trying it on. When I put on the dress, I knew this was the one for me. It was totally NOT what I expected I’d like, but I felt beautiful, I felt like a bride, and most importantly, I felt comfortable and like myself.

Why Lemor Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
My wedding dress is something that I will never wear again. Styles change so quickly, so I’d never want to push my dress on my children someday. The dress is also big and storage space is a commodity in NYC! I’d much rather have someone be able to enjoy the dress as much a I did over having sit in a box in a closet for decades begging to be worn.

Rachel + Eric | Laure de Sagazan Wedding from Jessica Blaine Smith Photography


Rachel + Eric’s Toronto wedding was an elegant and stylish affair complete with fun antiques and rustic touches.  We love that today’s featured couple chose an open-air venue in their neighbourhood and that the decor was put together with the help of loved ones.  Don’t miss Rachel’s elegant and graceful Laure de Sagazan vintage inspired wedding dress.  With original Calais lace and crepe de soie French silk, this dress is breathtaking.  Thanks for sharing Rachel + Eric and congrats on your recent nuptials!

Rachel + Eric | August 2, 2014 | Wychwood Barns, Toronto | Dress Listing: Laure de Sagazan, Visconti

The Ceremony
Our ceremony took place in the courtyard of Wychwood Barns, the gardens were in full bloom which made for a beautiful green back drop.  Since we live very close to the barns and we are often there on the weekends, it felt very intimate and familiar which Eric and I both loved. We had worked with our pastor, a family member on Eric’s side of the family, to customize our ceremony and vows.  Before the ceremony started pastor Paul made mention of how impressed he was at our effort and dedication to getting the ceremony and vows just right for us.

The ceremony was very emotional as my uncle walked me down the aisle (since my father had passed several years earlier) while my younger sibling played a piece on the guitar. My mom and sisters read a couple verses and said a prayer during the ceremony and Eric’s nephew handed us our rings. When we finally were husband and wife I felt so excited and happy to celebrate with our friends and family.

The Reception
The reception was at the same venue, at an onsite restaurant. My family and I did the entire decor from the flowers and signage to the table runners and party favors. We had everyone gathered around harvest tables chatting and mingling while the food was being served. Throughout the course of dinner friends and family gave speeches and made toasts that had us laughing and crying – sometimes both! Later on Eric’s cousin played a song for our first dance and then a few of our friends carried on the live music for the rest of the night. Every aspect of the wedding had the help of our family and friends which made the day all that more special and intimate.

Rachel’s Dress Search
I tried on at least forty dresses but nothing felt right to me, until I found my Laure de Sagazan dress. I love her vintage ethereal feel with feminine lace combined with a classic understated French style.

How Rachel Felt in Her Wedding Dress
I can’t say enough about the quality fabrics of the dress but three words I would use to describe how I felt in the dress would be elegant, graceful and classic.

I am selling the dress because I am 6 months pregnant and would like to make room in the apartment for some baby stuff.
