We've have been bursting at the seams to share these gorgeous photos of #dgcouple Autumn & Ryan! Autumn is actually a Dress Gallery employee during our super busy season January-March; she helps run our front desk and we would be totally lost without her. When her soul mate, Ryan, finally popped the question (using cow tags!!), we were so proud that she asked us to style her, Ryan, and their group. Check out these gorgeous photos courtesy of Jennifer Lynn Photos based out of Oklahoma!
Autumn knew she wanted her wedding to fit their Western/rustic vibe, but without the traditional burlap and mason jars we've seen in previous years. Complete with a neutral color palette and bohemian accents, we love how she turned her vision to life! Their wedding day was the perfect combination of traditional and unique, with every piece of their wedding having the best "Bergkamp twist" to it!
Autumn chose an aboslute stunner of a dress - Azale by Chic Nostalgia, a super cool, bold lace-patterened dress featuring a soft a-line skirt, secret beading throughout, and a nude undertone. Her high neckline was chic and modern combined with the super flirty, fun bell sleeves. Add in her dramatic keyhole back and this dress was truly the "Autumn" dress. We love that she styled it with loose curls and her signature cowgirl boots!
Autumn wanted her girls to feel fabulous and comfortable during the big day, so she opted for a mix-and-match bridesmaids palette that was as unique and beautiful as her girls were. This was the perfect decision, especially as a few of her bridesmaids were pregnant - this led them to choose dresses they felt the most comfortable in!
Her neutral color palette was vamped up by using different fabrics and textures, truly creating visual dimension in all of her photos. We love how the dresses vary and are as unique as the girls!
When it came to outfitting Ryan and his groomsmen, both Autumn & Ryan knew they wanted to keep their look traditional yet stylish. They chose navy suits over black to keep the look soft, but dressed up their suits by adding boots and hats. Combined with the girls' multiple textures and we love how sharp this group turned out!
Alex, our menswear stylists, loved working with Ryan's group. "I had a super great time working with the Bergkamps. Even though their group was HUGE, everyone was in good spirits and totally understood our rental & replacement policies. They allowed us to take care of them and then send them off to the best wedding weekend ever!"
Their September wedding was full of sunshine, laughter, and really, really good food. The Dress Gallery crew was so excited to wrap up our workday and head to their celebration after a busy Saturday! We love all of our brides, but especially when they are #dgbabes first, we have a super soft spot in our heart. We love you, Autumn!
Congratulations to the Bergkamps! We are so thankful for you, Autumn, and we wish you & Ryan a lifetime of love and happiness. We are beyond thrilled that you two have found each other; we have loved following your love story and are so grateful you included Dress Gallery both professionally and socially. Cheers to you both!
