Another member of the Dress Gallery family is married! Our next #dgcouple is near and dear to our hearts. Kendra worked for Dress Gallery many years ago and became an integral member of our team. She found her soulmate, Kendal, and continued on with her life and career. We were so thrilled when they included us in styling them and their group for their special day! We love their gallery from one of our favorite local photographer, Alex Bo Photo Co - it was the perfect representation of this bright, upbeat, ultra warm couple. Take a peek at some of our favorite shots below from a wedding super special to us!
For her gown, Kendra was looking for something timeless yet modern. She loved the look of traditional satin, but felt a totally plain dress just didn't have the "WOW" factor we were looking for. We all fell in love with the ballgown silhouette on her and everyone LOST IT when she finally found her fabulous strapless Essense of Australia gown (style D3064). Her dress featured bold lace floral appliques throughout, a truly unique combo - we don't often see lace appliques applied directly to satin Mikado. We loved this combination of the timeless satin look, but also the romantic and feminine touch of the florals. The strapless neckline kept her modest but also showcasing her gorgeous shoulders - plus, for a June wedding, it allowed her to be free and comfortable during the summer heat. And wanna know the true feature that sealed the deal for us? This babe had secret POCKETS!
For Kendal and his guys, we knew we wanted something that fit the formality of the wedding, but black seemed too dark for this ultra sunny June wedding. We landed on a light grey tuxedo - structured enough to match the vibe of the wedding day, but lightweight and bright enough to fit the airy color palette. Kendra chose a stunning Sage color from designer Morilee for her bridesmaids dresses, so the combination of the light green and grey accented their neutral floral designs and overall airy feel. We wanted everyone to feel confident and comfortable while still showcasing how fun this couple is!
Congratulations, Kendra and Kendal! You are both forever apart of our Dress Gallery family; we are so grateful you trusted us to style you for such an important event. It means the world you let us style your entire bridal party and included us in the reception so we could celebrate your love. Thank you for your hard work all those years and for keeping us in your hearts! We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and puppy kisses. Cheers to the McGuires!
