Love at First Sight
When it comes to wedding dress shopping, every bride has her own story. Some brides try on countless gowns before finding the one she loves. Others may experience a “love at first sight” moment. One way is not better than the other; it’s all part of the journey of being a bride! When Rachel was ready to shop for a wedding dress, she did a lot of research. Before she even got to her appointment, she was certain about the style, color, and feel of the dress she wanted to wear down the aisle! However, the moment she laid eyes on style 884 by Martina Liana, all that planning went out the window.
The first thing that caught Rachel’s eye was the stunning rose gold accents and gorgeous blush color. She knew she had to try this dress on! There was something deep down that just drew her to it. As soon as she put it on, she knew that no other dress would ever compare. It was the very first dress she tried on, but she knew without a doubt that it was the one!
Rachel loved being a TBC bride. “The staff at The Bridal Collection provides unparalleled service. I always felt so pampered and welcomed every time I came in.” – Rachel

First Look Feels
Very few things give us the warm fuzzies like a “first look”. There’s just something about it: the long awaited wedding day, both the bride and groom feeling like their most beautiful & handsome self, the mixture of nerves and excitement, and that final moment of the groom catching a glimpse of his bride. We just get goosebumps every time! The decision to do a first look on their wedding day was definitely the right choice for Rachel & Kevin. Once Kevin laid eyes on his soon-to-be wife, he was completely speechless! It was a moment and a feeling that Rachel will never forget.
I Do’s and Brews
We love when couples get creative on their wedding day! When planning a wedding, make sure to add personal touches to make your special day feel a little more “you”.
Rachel and Kevin are big fans of Colorado craft breweries, so they chose to serve all Colorado beers at their wedding reception! In addition, the groomsmen had hops and grains incorporated into their boutonnières.
Although we may be a little biased, we think that Colorado couples are the most creative when it comes to personalizing their wedding day. Did you have any special details that made your wedding day more personal? We’d love to hear about it!
Advice for Brides
“Try to do as much ahead of time as possible. When the day approaches you will want as much time to absorb the special moments as possible and you don’t want to spend any of that precious time worried about anything but celebrating. I personally had a day of coordinator to help; she was priceless.” – Rachel
