Ashley + Dallas | Hayley Paige Wedding From Chugach Peaks Photography

Hayley Paige Real Wedding

When your wedding’s in Alaska, its almost guaranteed to be gorgeous.  Add in a stunning Haley Paige ballgown, pretty florals and a charming tented reception and you’ve got the makings of a dream wedding.  There is so much goodness in this wedding, but we think our favorite part might just be the portraits with the winter hat and boots.  So fun!

Ashley’s Wedding Dress Search
I tried on close to 20 dresses. I chose the dress that I did because it was different than any dress I tried on. I thought I wanted something simple, but when I tried on this dress I knew it was the one.

Three Words To Describe How She Felt In Her Dress
Elegant, beautiful, princess

Why She’s Selling Her Wedding Dress
I wanted the dress of my dreams and decided the only way to do that was sell the dress after the wedding. Additionally, there is something special about having someone else wear the dress that made you feel so beautiful on your wedding day, rather than having it sit in a closet for the next 50 years.

Simple themes, luxurious details and modern touches create a chic feel. Here are some dressy, sophisticated wedding invitations perfect for your wedding.

Geometric chic: You’ve been warned — visiting MaeMae & Co.‘s website to view their “characters” (which is what they call their invitations) may cause your heart to go pitter patter. We had a hard time choosing just one chic invitation from their collection, but Bruno’s muted palette and understated simple lines just says chicness, doesn’t it?

Daisy + Matt | Berta Bridal Wedding from Neil Hanson Photography

Berta Bridal 13-88 |

The romance of the countryside is felt in every one of Daisy and Matt’s wedding day photos. It didn’t hurt that they chose a stunning estate to host their nuptials, complete with an ancient chapel. Daisy’s wedding gown — a lace Berta Bridal gown with a structured peplum — was the perfect match for such an elegant venue. We love the way they included their wedding guests in their vows, as well. Such a personal addition to an emotional event.

The Ceremony
Our ceremony was set in a candle lit, flower filled 15th century stone chapel, led by our close friend Chris. We wrote our own heartfelt vows and had loved ones recite their experiences in marriage — a dear friend married five years spoke of the importance of laying solid foundations. Matt’s grandfather, happily married and in love for the past 65 years explained how to succeed decade upon decade.

The Reception
We then had cocktails & canapes on the terrace, overlooking the estate’s lake and countryside, before dining in the beautifully adorned manor house’s ballroom. There we had a delicious four-course meal, laughed and cried at incredible speeches and then moved to the Orangery where we danced all night while binging from the sweet cart and devoured our wedding macarons.

Daisy’s Dress Search
I tried on countless dresses and evening gowns, because I wanted something truly special; a dress that made me feel like the most beautiful me I could be. In truth, my heart was set on my gorgeous Berta dress, well before I tried on any other! I’d spied it on Pinterest and then hunted down a stockist in Toronto, Canada where we were living at the time. After securing my spot at their Berta Bridal trunk show I begged them to bring over a sample of my dress, but unfortunately it wasn’t included in the touring range coming to Canada. When I tried on their other gowns, I fell in love with the label, but my mind could not move past that first dress. So, much like the bride that will one day wear my dress, I took a chance, followed my heart and I ordered my dress without trying it on or seeing it in person … I just knew.

How Daisy Felt in Her Wedding Dress
Glamorous, elegant and sexy.

Why Daisy Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
My decision to sell my dress was made simply because it’s far too beautiful and unique a style to be locked away! I met my husband online (thanks and picked my dress online, so it only seems fitting that another bride should find and love my Berta Bridal gown online.
