GUYS. We are LOSING IT over this wedding gallery we were just sent. Our next #dgcouple is Cara and Brenden and their photographer, Courtney Mitchell, straight up KILLED this wedding gallery. We mean it - take all the dreamy, ethereal, romantic vibes you want in a gallery and then call Courtney because she's the person to deliver. Everything from Cara's chic dress to Brenden's timeless outfit to the modern veil and vintage car - you're going to want to steal ALL these details you find below!
Cara and Brenden got married in a super stunning, ultra-light autumn wedding ceremony complete with the dreamiest golden accents and neutral color palette. Cara knew she wanted a timeless, simplistic wedding day, so she chose a classic black-and-white color scheme for her bridal party. She knew she wanted a dress that was sexy, yet sophisticated and didn't feature a LICK of beading or lace. We knew that her Allure Bridal gown (style 9603) was perfect the minute she put it on! Cara is a fashion-forward bride, so when we found this Allure dress featuring a bold, plunging back and a stunning bow feature, we KNEW that Cara was the bride for this dress!
Cara's Allure Bridals dress is made of pure silky crepe, a thicker material made to drape perfectly over a brides' silhouette. Her sheath-fit perfectly highlighted her waist and hips while flowing flaring around her thighs in a gorgeous, soft fit-and-flare shape. Her train is accented with delicate fabric buttons all the way down and her open, plunging back is made for true drama. Between the v neckline of the front and the dramatically open back, structurally, there needed to be way for the side seams to be supported throughout the dress.....cue the bow. We love bows, really. And this Allure Bridals dress we truly believe is going to be the trendsetter in bridal bows coming forward. Cara was so excited about the unique, feminine detail and we love how she paired it with simplistic jewelry and florals!
When it came to Brenden and his menswear, Cara chose a stunning dark grey tuxedo featuring a super simplistic satin accent on the label. Their dark grey color was deep enough to feel black, but light enough to feel nice and airy against everyone's skin tones. Brenden is actually one of the last grooms we have in this style, as our menswear rental distributor discontinued this style. But never fear! We have some fabulous styles for 2022 that are brand new and perfect for recreating this timeless look.
We are OBSESSED with Cara's cathedral-length scattered pearl veil. The length creates serious drama while the lightweight tulle material creates dimension and movement throughout Cara's photos. We love that the pearls keep the look classy and traditional while still feeling like a truly modern bride. We are loving the simplistic crepe look with pearl accents; add in Cara's stunning bow and we truly believe that brides are going to be showing us her photos for years to come!
Congratulations, Brenden and Cara! We absolutely LOVED getting to know you both and hearing all about your love story. You both are such rays of sunshine that we truly believe you'll have a lifetime of love and laughter. Thank you both for trusting us to style you for such an important and special day. We wish you both the absolute best. Cheers to the Weathers!
