They say when you find your wedding dress, you just know. Bride, Ellen, is a fashion blogger and originally saw her gown in a looklook. Years later, she purchased the hard-to-find gown online, sight unseen. She was right, the dress was totally amazing and was beautiful at her outdoor California wedding.
Ellen’s now selling the dress at an amazing discount, so some lucky bride-to-be can scoop this fashion-forward gown for a steal!

The Ceremony Our venue itself was absolutely stunning that we didn’t want to add to much design into the venue. Rancho Las Lomas is an outdoor Spanish style villa with beautiful architecture and greenery. We got married under a small Villa with a beautiful arc that we decorated with a garland.
While our guests were upstairs near the pool and water fountain area, the ceremony transformed into the reception area. We had white tables with peach, pink and gold details. It was outdoor under the trees and bistro lighting. Our floral arrangements included peonies, roses, lemon leaf and Cafe Au Laits.

I tried on 2 dresses at Vera Wang and 1 at Monique Lhuillier. I actually found my dress online by luck. I saw this dress few years back on Marchesa’s lookbook online. It wasn’t available anywhere! I wasn’t even engaged and I would search online to see if any third party retailer had the dress. few years later, I was casually shopping online when I came across this listing on a consignment website. It was brand new, still in box. I bought it immediately! Never tried it on till it came to my house and never regretted my decision!

Someone deserves to have the same feeling I did in my dress their special day. I want to share this dress with the world because it’s the most beautiful unique wedding dress ever!
There’s a perfect wedding dress for every bride. One that makes her look and feel beautiful and that she knows its the one the moment she tries it. Self proclaimed non-traditional bride, Janine, found her dream dress in a custom creation. It’s gorgeous. Unique. And perfectly her. Just like every wedding dress should be.

We had a lovely simple outdoor ceremony on the terrace of the hotel. Our parents walked us both down the isle (much to the grooms dismay) to Otis Redding, said our own vows, and toasted with champagne on the other end.
Our reception went down exactly how we wanted it with everyone on the dance floor till the end of the night. We did our dance at the start of the night so that our nerves didn’t get in the way of enjoying the night.

I tried on so many! I’m not very traditional and was hoping to find a dress that happened to be white as opposed to a wedding dress. I chose the dress I wore because it allowed me to do something different and fully customize it to what I wanted.

It seems like such a waste having it sit in my wardrobe forever. I would love for someone to love wearing it as much as I did.
This South Carolina wedding is filled with goodness. Like the storybook mountain side chapel for the ceremony and the naturally beautiful reception venue. We love the simple but stylish vibe found everywhere from the flowers to the tables and the cake. And we bet you’ll smile when you read how Janet knew her dress was the one.

Our ceremony was held at The Cliffs at Glassy Mountain Chapel – a surreal space. It’s a quaint chapel perched right on the side of a mountain. The fall foliage and views for miles were absolutely breathtaking and exactly what we were looking for.
Our reception was held at The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards tucked in the foothills of South Carolina. Our reception itself was at their Lakehouse venue, which has lovely views of the lake and mountains. While it was an indoor/outdoor venue, we geared the reception outdoors but had everything tented because in South Carolina it is generally best to prepare for rain during the fall. The feel of the décor was rustic mixed with a very organic feel. It was very important to us that everything feel relaxed and natural while also feeling chic. We feel we achieved this with this location and venue.

I tried on about five dresses originally and narrowed it down fairly quickly to three. The Charlie dress stood out to me among all of them but I needed my mother and sister their to give me their opinions (I went dress shopping alone originally). They came to town the next day and we went back to the bridal salon. I saved Charlie for last because deep down I knew that it was the one. When I walked out in the dress my mother began crying immediately and that pretty much sealed the deal for me.

This dress is a custom, hand-made wedding dress. The detail is absolutely astonishing and I don’t feel right having it hang in a closet for years and years to come. Someone else deserves to feel as amazing as I did on my wedding day. It truly is one of a kind and for the bride looking for subtle detail and something different.
