#dgbride: Brandee

We are desperately wishing for warmer weather and sunnier days, so we're going to live vicariously through #dgbride, Brandee! Brandee married her soulmate, Jaycob, in an ultra-gorgeous autumnal ceremony complete with the dustiest, earthiest color palette. Her photographer, Jennie Marie, perfectly captured their down-to-earth, effortlessly luxurious day. You're going to LOVE Brandee's color palette, long sleeve dress, and all of these gorgeous details. Check out some of our favorite shots below! 

 

 

 

 

 

Brandee ended up choosing an absolutely STUNNING Essense of Australia gown, (style D3284), featuring the most gorgeous long sleeves we've ever seen. Maybe we're biased. It's fine either way. This secret illusion top goes all the way to her collarbone, keeping her supported, yet the plunging neckline with the lace appliques keep the silhouette sexy and sophisticated. Her open back allows for extra comfort and movement, along with the jersey stretch liner in the skirt. Add in a super dramatic scalloped-edge train and you have the perfect autumnal wedding gown!

 

 

 

 

 

We love that Brandee chose Essense's "rum" undercolor, allowing for the lace to pop and create major dimension in her photos. Paired with the gorgeous reds and oranges of Brandee's ceremony and reception backdrop and we truly were screaming over this earthy color palette. Her wedding day look felt bohemian and effortless, with gorgeous loose curls, soft braids, and a softly beaded fingertip length veil for just a pop of tradition. We love that she kept Jaycob formal, yet comfortable in his jeans-and-jacket look, complete with pop of orange for his tie. We can't take credit for his awesome look, but would love to recreate this style for any future grooms! We fell heels-over-head with this wedding gallery, guys, and Brandee + Jaycob's smiles are why. Every photo was full of so much joy and laughter, it was truly contagious. Jennie Marie perfectly captured this wedding day and we can feel how much love there was everywhere during their big day!

 

 

Congratulations, Brandee and Jaycob! We absolutely loved getting to work with you and helping you find your perfect Essense of Australia gown. You were truly such a gorgeous, bubbly bride and we are so thankful we got to know you. We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter - something we are positive you'll have in abundance. Cheers to the Hugheys!
