Wedding dress + veil

I'm really drawn to simple weddings these days, so I'm loving Bryce and Stephanie's afternoon wedding in Michigan. Their dog Morty was the enthusiastic best man, and Stephanie carried a bunch of wildflowers. She found her beautiful dress at Loehmann's (Loehmann's!) for $55. And isn't it gorgeous how she tucked her veil under her bun? I don't think I've ever seen that before! So graceful and old-fashioned. xo

It's All Good said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOHEMANNS! Like Fran and her mom would say in that one epsiode of The Nanny...

"How much is that dress in Macy's window? Who cares it'll get it at Lohemanns on saaaallllleee!" =) Beautiful veil too...

Brittany said...

Absolutely divine!

I'm equal parts upset and impressed that her dress cost less than my wedding shoes!

i loooove her hair!

Such a gorgeous bride!! I can't believe she was able to score her wedding gown for $55!! Just goes to show you one doesn't need tons of money to have tons of style. Looks like a charming wedding, I love their sweet dog running beside them, he made a very cute best man!

Every Little Counts said...

wow, the dress is from Loehmann's?! i am in love. looking at all of these wedding photos makes me a) want to get married again (to the same man!) and b) start working in the wedding industry. i love that simple, personal, non- traditional weddings are becoming more popular. i've always hated the big box version of a wedding with huge expensive dresses and ceremonies. i'm almost shedding a tear looking at this couple, and i don't even know them!

I love that! She is so beautiful, elegant, simple...
I loved my wedding day but wouldn't mind having hers instead. Joking... kind of. ha!

Josie said...

She looks absolutely beautiful and so elegant -- I love the idea of tucking the veil under the bun!

Jennifer said...

What a simple but lovely wedding! It's nice to see more proof that you do not need to spend a fortune to have a beautiful wedding; most important is that you are with those you love most. And I think Morty is the best Best Man I've ever come across!

Really beautiful! It is quite common here in Finland to have your veil like that.

Aaaaaah, these are my favorite type of weddings. Simple, rustic and old fashioned. Plus, I just can't get over the understated elegance of an old, white house surrounded by land.
