Real Wedding: Aline and Brian’s Vineyard Wedding

A scenic setting, a gorgeous Carol Hannah gown, and stunning blends of lilac, fuchsia, and scarlet will all make your jaw drop. Aline and Brian did an amazing job of bringing their closest family and friends together to share their love. The romance of the day is exuded in these photos, and every meticulous detail stands out.


Tell us about THE dress and what inspired your look.

I initially wanted something elegant but very simple.  I didn’t want to wear anything that looked like a traditional wedding dress.  When I first saw THE dress, I thought it looked extra special and gorgeous, but certainly not the simple style I was looking for.  I tried it on just for fun and I felt amazing in it.  My mom and dad were with me and convinced me that for the one special day in my life, “simple” was overrated and this dress was something out of a movie, which is what I should have on my wedding day.  I went back the next day and bought it!

What were the most important details to pulling off your dream wedding?

Every detail was personal, which was very important to me and my fiancée.  Again, we didn’t want it to be just another wedding, we wanted the details to be based on our personalities.  We made “words of wisdom” of important advice we have received regarding marriage and displayed them near our wedding album.  We displayed old photographs of our parents and grandparents.  We hand-picked each song that was played at the wedding.  We made sure that only our close friends and family members were present to make our intimate wedding very special.  I also wore my grandmother’s engraved wedding band, which is exactly what I had envisioned.


What was the most memorable moment? 

It’s hard to pick one moment, but stealing a kiss with my husband on the dance floor was a highlight.  Another highlight was the speech that he gave during dinner.

If you could give future brides any advice, what would it be?

Don’t get caught up with the check list of everything you HAVE to do and only focus on those details that are important to you.  It really is a magical day and it does go by so quick so I wanted to enjoy every minute.  I also think it’s important to not worry about anything on the day of, which is why I gave my cell phone to my sister the day before, which was really “key” to my stress free day!

Real Wedding: Wendy and Sean’s Most Intimate Elopement

Get ready to fall head over heels for Wendy and Sean’s Elopement. Looking through these photos you will see a couple so in love, relaxed, and having the absolute time of their lives. Wendy wore a gorgeous Shop Lovely dress that couldn’t have suited her better. This couple truly exudes what a wedding is really about, and it is such a gift that they were willing to share their special day with us!


Tell us about THE dress and what inspired your look.

I wanted a dress Sean would love me in. I pictured a vintage inspired dress with sleeves that was a little flirty, but also sophisticated. After months of shopping, I discovered Shop Lovely. I knew right away that I had found THE dress. It had sleeves, lace, a vintage ivory color and a flirty little key hole in the back. It was love at first sight.

What were the most important details to pulling off your dream wedding?

The most important detail was keeping the wedding a secret, we eloped. We are planning a destination wedding in July. Planning a big wedding can get a little stressful and it’s easy to lose sight of the real meaning of a wedding, which is love. We decided to elope on 11/12/13 to keep the day very intimate. It was just the two of us and it felt like we were in our own world floating on love clouds. It was exciting, meaningful and emotional, the perfect day! We are looking forward to our destination wedding but it’ll be more of a fun and easy going party.


What was the most memorable moment?

There were three. We wrote our own vows and it was extremely special. After we got married, we took our tripod and camera to a County Agricultural Park and had a photo-shoot. It was 32 degrees. We were freezing but we had a blast! I got some pretty awesome pictures in my dress and we created some fun memories. I also surprised Sean with a cake I ordered. We picked it up after the wedding.

If you could give future brides any advice, what would it be?

Don’t lose sight of the reason for having a wedding. It’s all about love. Don’t stress, everything will turn out beautifully. If you’re feeling daring, consider eloping before the wedding day. It’s a lot of fun and it takes the edge off .
