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!

Hope everyone is having a lovely day so far! We can’t contain our excitement over our featured bride this week. We are finally featuring our beautiful bride Elizabeth Haggerty in her Hayley Paige wedding dress! Elizabeth was gorgeous in the Remmington gown. Seriously, some of those photos of her walking around Downtown Fort Worth was simply breathtaking. The Remmington dress has long sleeves that are completed with beaded rosewater floral embellishment, a low open back and an airy tulle skirt that is perfect for twirling. You can see the twirling action in some of the dancing photos from the reception. And speaking of their reception… we love how they decorated the Modern Art Museum to celebrate their big day. Red roses everywhere was the epitome of romance!
It was such a pleasure to help Elizabeth find her dream dress and get to be a part of her special day!

It’s Wedding Wednesday on Once Upon A Gown, and we are bursting with excitement to finally share with you our De Ma Fille Beauty Lauren Spataro! Lauren wore the Dori gown by Hayley Paige and looked absolutely breathtaking! The Dori wedding dress is an alabaster tulle ball gown with a fun textured skirt and a high neck halter crystal bodice. This wedding dress is a staple and a definition of Hayley Paige. Lauren also wore Haute Bride accessories, earrings and a headband, where the opal and clear stones matched perfectly with her gown. We love how Lauren is a Hayley Paige bride, and wore a “Wedding Day Vibes” robe by Hayley Paige to get ready in on her big day! Lauren is such a sweetheart and we were so thrilled to be a part of her big day!
Their photographer, Jenny Bright, did such an amazing job that it was extremely hard for us to narrow down which photos to post for this blog. As you will find out when you scroll on, we definitely shared quite a bit from their big day… probably making this one of our longest blog posts to feature so far. But they were such great photos and you really don’t want to miss out seeing all of this gorgeous wedding, and our beautiful bride!!!
Some of our photo favorites are the ones they took with their adorable dog! OMG!!! Those photos just melt my heart and she was too cute. Also, we just adore the toppers on the grooms cake (miniatures of the groom, bride and dog… and the mini bride is in the Dori gown), and of course we love all of the photos of that dress, which pretty much is every photo!
Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. Spataro!

We are so excited for another Wedding Wednesday on the blog! Today we are sharing the lovely Courtney in her gorgeous Hayley Paige wedding dress. Hayley Paige loves naming all of her dresses, and this one in particular is named Behati! This wedding dress is so fun with its geometric organza ball gown skirt with pickup detail, and that Moroccan beaded back is just stunning! Of course we are head over heels for the details, and speaking of heels… her Louis Vuitton shoes were just too adorable for words!
Courtney & Scott tied the knot at one of our favorite venues here in Fort Worth, The Brik. We adore all the places you get to take photos here, the graffiti wall, the ivy wall, and on the roof to get that breathtaking view of the Fort Worth skyline!
The newlyweds definitely made a grand exit with those sparklers and leaving in a horse and carriage!
Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. Gaffney!

With the Hayley Paige Trunk Show this weekend, we wanted to post a Hayley Paige bride for this Wedding Wednesday! Callie looked drop dead gorgeous in her wedding dress! The Keaton gown by Hayley Paige is a strapless striped organza wedding dress with a ruched elongated bodice, flounced tulle and organza skirt (this dress is a Hayley Paige signature). Callie is such a beautiful person inside and out, and this wedding dress also just speaks about her fun personality. Callie & Fred are a very artistic and creative couple, so they added grizzly bears into their photos for a majestic theme. We also just adore the re-created snapshot of them on the hood of their car from when they were dating to after marriage! We are filled with excitement for this post because not only are Callie & Fred a lovely couple, but are dear friends of ours and we get to share their love for each other and amazing photos from their big day! Love you two!
(Side note: If you would like to become a Hayley Paige bride just like Callie, don’t forget about our trunk show this weekend where you can get a discount if you order a Hayley Paige wedding dress! By appointment only, so please give us a call or email!)

We absolutely adore our De Ma Fille Beauty, Aubry! It was such a pleasure helping her find the wedding dress of her dreams that also made a statement! She looked absolutely stunning in the Nicoletta gown by Hayley Paige. Aubry got her wedding dress in the alabaster color, which we are obsessed with because it gives off the mixture of lavender and blush (our favorite colors). The Nicoletta dress is a tiered tulle ball gown with a floral beaded ballet bodice with spaghetti straps that crisscross in the back.
Aubry had so many gorgeous photos that made it very hard to narrow down for this post! Shout out to Beatbox Portraits for taking such wonderful photos of her beautiful wedding. Also, every detail of the wedding that Aubry chose was fabulous. What an awesome team of wedding vendors!

We are swooning over her choice of flowers for her bouquets, floral crown and for decoration from Vella Nest Floral. We are just a sucker for succulents!
The Brik is an awesome venue that combines the themes of industrial yet romantic, and that rooftop view is breathtaking!
We have fallen in love with the idea of an artist at your wedding painting the bride and groom out on the dance floor! We personally haven’t seen this done before and it blew us away with how unique this concept is! I mean, how awesome would it be to have a painting of your wedding hanging up in your house!
Aubry and Zach exited their wedding in our most favorite way… sparklers!!! Again, Beatbox Portraits captured their exit beautifully and to us it just screams romantic and dreamy!
Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Lawless! We wish you a lifetime of happiness!
