Welcome to Once Upon a Gown! We are so excited to feature our lovely bride Robyn on the blog today. Robyn and Justin tied the knot this past December at the beautiful Oaks Event Center.  We loved how the photos from their wedding gave us such cozy vibes. We love how they chose their wedding details, very natural and romantic. Robyn was simply elegant in her Ti Adora wedding dress that featured a high neck lace illusion bodice with cap sleeves and an open back with lace detail, completed with a flowy chiffon skirt. She looked absolutely stunning and took our breath away, and we just adore her bridal photos with all that gorgeous greenery!

Hey there lovelies! Today on Once Upon a Gown we are going to be sharing some beautiful wedding photos from our De Ma Fille Beauty, Autumn! Layton and Autumn tied the knot on March 24th at Five Oaks Farm in Cleburne,TX. We are absolutely obsessed with the stunning wedding photos they took with that sunset and with the twinkling lights as it turned into evening! Autumn looked gorgeous in her clean and chic fit and flare wedding gown by Essense of Australia, with covered buttons down the back and completed with a tiered tulle skirt. Looking through their wedding album, you can see the absolute joy and love that both of them have for each other. Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Zinsmeister!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday! It’s a beautiful day and it’s getting closer to the weekend. Today on Once Upon a Gown, we are sharing our bride Monica who is such a beauty. Monica and Randy tied the knot on May 4th at The Chicory in New Orleans; which used to be a coffee warehouse that has been transitioned into a wedding venue that has an old-world charm that includes exposed beams, brick walls and gas lanterns. We think this venue was the perfect backdrop for Monica’s Art Deco wedding. We also think Monica chose the perfect dress to shine and make a statement on her big day. She looked absolutely gorgeous in her Martina Liana gown that had a plunging V neckline and open back, sheer bodice, and was adorned with beading and lace. This wedding dress definitely ensures that all eyes are on the bride!

Hope everyone is having a lovely Wednesday! Today we are so excited to share some wedding photos of our beautiful bride Sarah in her Essense of Australia wedding dress. Sarah is such a sweetheart and we had such a pleasure helping her find her perfect dream dress. Sarah wore a traditional and classic A-line gown made of organza that is light as air with a layered skirt and sweetheart neckline. Jeremie and Sarah fell in love while they met in college at Texas Christian University. So it was a perfect plan that after they tied the knot at their church, Christ Chapel, they would head over to the TCU campus to take their bridal party portraits. The portraits from their reception at Bass Hall were just stunning! We absolutely love how gorgeous the photos are out on that balcony. This week’s post is extra special because Jeremie and Sarah are celebrating six months of being Mr. & Mrs. Fagnan!

Summer is getting closer and this wedding on the blog today is definitely making us wish we were at the beach! Kaitlyn and Rich tied the knot at The Reefs in Bermuda; which is definitely a venue worth checking out if you are planning a destination wedding. We think our bride Kaitlyn looked drop dead gorgeous on her wedding day! She is such a natural beauty! Kaitlyn wore two gowns, one for the ceremony and one for the reception. For the ceremony, Kaitlyn’s dress was a simple and chic, fit and flare style with buttons cascading down the train by Essense of Australia. I mean, wow… she simply took our breath away from how stunning she looked! Also, we personally loved the blue sapphire jewelry she wore with this dress making it the perfect finishing touch. For her reception, Kaitlyn wore the Teresa gown by Hayley Paige. This gown has a light flowy chiffon skirt with an amazing celestial beaded bodice and back detail making it the perfect glamorous beach dress. Kaitlyn looked absolutely flawless and we just adore her lovely beach wedding!

Today is such a beautiful day and we are very excited to finally post about our lovely bride Christine! Christine was such a sweetheart to work with and it was a pleasure helping her find her dream dress! Christine wore a beautiful fitted lace gown by Eddy K Milano with a low open back with a beaded trim, buttons cascading down the train, and completed with stunning lace cut outs on the side. We know we are a bit bias, but we think she was absolutely gorgeous on her big day!  With her hair in a loose updo, we think her look was extremely romantic. Christine and Austin tied the knot in November of 2017 at The Brik Venue, which is an awesome venue located here in Fort Worth.
