Tatiana + Valdrin | Lazaro Wedding from Niki Marie Photography


The glamour of an all-white wedding is undeniable, and in the case of Tatiana and Valdrin’s wedding, it pairs so well with the incredible ballroom setting. Champagne, white and other neutral tones combined with gold and silver which accentuated the luxe feel to this classic back tie affair. I love the elaborate beading and detailing in Tatiana’s Lazaro gown bodice — the perfect topper to an incredibly layered skirt!

The Ceremony
Our ceremony was outside overlooking the water. It was a non-religious ceremony as Valdrin is an Albanian muslim and I am a Brazilian catholic. The location had a brand new metal gazebo that was all black and gold. Made it all look very exotic. I kept my flowers very soft, mixed of all white and off-white hydrangeas and roses.

The Reception
What I loved the most about my reception location was the dramatic chandeliers inside the venue. I am not a fan of color so I kept everything very neutral. The flowers were all white and off white. Gold and silver accents and lots and lots of candles to make it very romantic.

Tatiana’s Dress Search
I always thought I would do a mermaid dress especially since my now husband use to tell me “Please don’t wear those big princess dresses.” He wanted me in something sexy but still looking like a bride, so I thought a mermaid fit would be perfect. After I put a mermaid dress on it just did not do anything for my petite frame.

I fell in love with my dress because I felt like a bride and a princess but it was still sexy without showing too much. Not fitted like a mermaid, but not a dramatic princess ballgown. In the end my husband loved my dress so much and I felt amazing!

How Tatiana Felt in Her Wedding Dress
Fairytale, dreaming, classy

Why Tatiana Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
I was completely against selling my dress as I wanted to save it so I can show my future daughter one day but after getting it cleaned and seeing it in a box it just made me feel sad. Once I received my pictures back from my photographer and my amazing video trailer I knew that my future daughter would still one day be able to relive the day without having to actual see my dress. Both our photographer and videographer were able to capture so much detail of my dress that there is absolutely no reason to keep my dress boxed up. I want to share it with another bride so she to can have the dress of her dreams. Hopefully whoever buys it will share pictures after the wedding with me!

GG + Ricky | Vera Wang Wedding From Angel Eyes Photography


This Chicago wedding is full of charm.  We love the gorgeous flowers, the pretty pale pink bridesmaid dresses and the bride’s stunning Vera Wang Ghillian. But most of all, we adore how radiant the couple looks and the happiness you can feel through the pictures.

The Ceremony
We wanted to get married outside, and the Herrington has the perfect courtyard setting alongside the Fox River.  It was idyllic!  We walked down a rose petal aisle and got married underneath an arbor cascading with flowers.

The Reception
The reception was also at the Herrington, which made it quite convenient for the guests.  The food is delicious and it is delivered to each guest with white glove service- a nice touch!  Our band, Red Wood, kept the dance floor packed all night!!

GG’s Wedding Dress Search
I didn’t have a vision for my wedding dress.  My best friend and I decided to try looking when I was visiting her in North Carolina.  In our usual fashion we were being ridiculously goofy at this fancy bridal salon, when we found the PERFECT dress!  Naturally it was out of my budget, so I tried to put it out of my mind.  But every dress I tried on I compared to that dress!  Finally I brought my mom to the Vera Wang store in Chicago, and once I tried it on and saw her reaction, I knew I had to have this dress!!

Why She’s Selling Her Wedding Gown
This dress was one of the highlights of the wedding!  I absolutely LOVE it!!  Before the wedding I would look at pictures of the dress and it would immediately make me happy, and now I love all of our wedding photos.  I want to share that happiness with another girl who may not be able to afford the dress!

The Ceremony:
We had a traditional chuppah with a reformed rabbi. There were candles and white rose petals down the aisle. The chuppah itself had ivory drapery with a full top of ivory roses and orchids cascading down. Beautiful crystal balls with candles inside hung behind us.

A string trio played our songs. He came down the aisle to The Verve- Bittersweet Symphony, and My mother walked me down the aisle to Snow Patrol- Chasing Cars. We said our own vows which we both laughed and cried to. It was magical.

Ruthie’s Wedding Dress Search:
I tried on 4 dresses all in one boutique. However I had come in with a photo of the Monique Lhuillier Forever dress, and knew that if it fit the way I imagined it would, that would be the dress. So I saved it for last, and when I came out of the dressing room and looked at my mom, we both knew.

Why She’s Selling Her Wedding Dress:
I decided to sell my wedding dress because I want someone else to enjoy it too. It seems foolish to have spent so much money on my dress for it to collect dust in an attic. I want my dress to experience another night full of love and happiness. I want my dress to become your dress, for a much cheaper price!

Brittany + Mike | Hayley Paige Wedding from Del Sol Photography


Brittany + Mike are such an endearing couple celebrating in Cancun, Mexico with their super cute son and 58 of their closest friends and family.  I’m such a fan of destination weddings, especially in January…the perfect escape and an awesome way to kick off a new year.  Don’t miss Brittany’s Hayley Paige strapless chiffon bridal ball gown called Coco, the Swiss dot and lace corset bodice with pleated detail is so romantic. Enjoy!

Brittany + Mike | January 23, 2014 | Cancun, Mexico | Dress Listing: Hayley Paige, Coco HP6205

The Ceremony
We got married on January 23, 2014 at the amazing Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort in beautiful Cancun Mexico!  The Ceremony was a relaxed ceremony on the beach looking out on the ocean. We were surrounded by 58 of our closest family and friends, and Mike’s aunt performed the ceremony for us. The groomsmen looked handsome in their grey pants, white shirts and suspenders and the bridesmaids were glowing in their off white dresses, turquoise jewelry and they carried gorgeous bouquets of anemones and ranunculus. Our son was by far the star of the show as he carried the rings down the aisle in his adorable suit with vest and bow tie. My dad walked me down the very long sandy aisle and as the wind blew my veil and dress flowed beautifully.

The Reception
The Reception was even better than I always dreamed. With clear acrylic tables, silver chiavari chairs and the most amazing tall centerpieces made of all white flowers, all on a terrace overlooking the ocean, it was stunning. We added some Mexican touches with papel picado above the dance floor and custom maracas to shake. Before we kicked off the dancing we took turns smashing the “i do” piñatas; so much fun!

Brittany’s Dress Search
I always thought I wouldn’t be one of those brides who knew when she found the dress; I thought I would love every dress I tried on. My sister, my sister-in-law, my mom and I headed on a girls weekend to the city for wedding dress shopping. The first day we headed to our first appointment of the day, when we walked in I spotted the Hayley Paige Coco dress; it was so unique and beautiful. I thought there was no way it would be in my budget but I just had to try it on! I tried on a few dresses and as I expected I liked every one of them. At this point I was worried “how am I ever going to choose just one” but then I tried on Coco and I just knew this was it! I looked like a bride, it had lace, Swiss dot (which I absolutely love), it was the ball gown I always wanted without any hint of princess and to top it all off the beautiful flowing layers made it completely appropriate for a beach! I was so completely sold! I told my mom to cancel all of the other appointments this was the one. In the months following I looked at a million more dresses and not once did I find anything comparable for me.

How Brittany Felt in Her Wedding Dress
My dress made me feel gorgeous with a little bit of sexy…but most of all it made me feel  like a real bride while still being comfortable and easy to wear.

Why Brittany Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
I have decided to sell my wedding dress because I would love another bride to be able to feel as beautiful as I felt on my wedding day. My dress was over my budget which made me have to readjust my spending, I hope by selling my dress someone will get to have the experience I had even if they couldn’t afford it brand new.
