Real Bride: Montana

Beautiful Montana was married on a flawless summer day and celebrated with family and friends by eating snow cones and donuts from local food trucks. Sounds like a perfect day to me! IMG_8691 copy
My husband’s name is Kade Hansen and we actually have a pretty cool story of how we met. I was serving an LDS mission in Seattle while Kade was living and working in Hawaii. My dad went out to do business there and met Kade and they hit it off really fast. My dad really liked Kade and kept hinting that he had this missionary daughter. Kade was not having it haha! My dad told him to write me and Kade was like yeah sure sure… But never did. Finally, after some involvement from other friends and him finally seeing a picture of me (so embarrassing) he wrote me! My dad had told me about this guy he wanted me to write and so he made sure that I would write him back. We clicked instantly and wrote every week for almost a year! I got back from my mission in December 2014 and during the time that we were writing, miracle of all miracles, Kade had moved back to Utah and was living in Provo. So we met the day after I got home from my mission and saw each other every single day after!

We were married on July 7th, 2015 in the Draper LDS temple. We were supposed to be married on August 21st and I am soo glad we pushed it up. Haha! The day was absolutely perfect. IMG_0513
Picking my wedding dress was an enormous ordeal. I had this vision of exactly what I wanted and I really couldn’t find it anywhere or it was way way too far out of my price range. After a while I really got frustrated. So we went into Avenia and Ashley was sweet enough to help us! Together we pulled a bunch of dresses but none felt right. Then, she pulled out my dress and asked me what I thought. I didn’t like it at first! It didn’t fit my vision and I was interested. But, I put it on anyway. It felt like butter on my skin! It was perfect! But I didn’t know it. I loved the dress and thought it was amazing but I kept looking. Every time I tried on another dress I was always going back to that one. So, we came back to Avenia and I got it! I had so much fun picking out certain parts of my dresses. I did a hi-low hem which turned out amazing and I picked a beautiful Shrimp pinkish color to go underneath. IMG_1239
Kade and I are both very laid back and really easy going, simple people so that was the theme for our wedding! We both knew that we wanted it to be fun and beautiful but very relaxed. We had our reception in my grandparents backyard so that went with a more relaxed feel. We had malasadas and snowiness so I’m not sure what’s more relaxed than that 😉 I’m not really into bright colors and so we decided on a neutral palate. I remember seeing a picture on Pinterest of succulents on a sort of beachy scene and that became the inspiration for everything. Our flowers were succulents and everything was pale or neutral in color. It turned out so beautiful! IMG_9374 copy
My advice for brides planning their wedding… Relax! It is supposed to be fun! And it all works out anyway. Sometimes it doesn’t feel like it will, but it all works out and turns out beautiful! I really wish I would’ve soaked up more of the experience and even more of my wedding day.IMG_0807 copy
My experience at Avenia was great! My dress had a lot of custom elements and it was so fun to be able to pick them out. Ashley, Nancy and all the other wonderful ladies working there were always so nice and helpful. After I took my dress home I had some issues with the hem so I brought it back in and they were able to fix it right up. We had a great experience! IMG_0502

My photographer, Sandy Whitaker , did an amazing job! She captured the day just the way I wanted her to and I’m so grateful to have such amazing pictures to look back at. I have to thank Joy Astle and her team at The Borrowers Market for designing our sweet invitations and for letting us borrow stuff! Clark’s Island Donuts and Ono Ice did an awesome job for our food. Another quick shoutout to Ashley Armstrong (@ashleyarmstronbeauty). She did my hair and makeup for my bridals and wedding day. She also did my mom and sisters! It turned out just the way I wanted it too. Our day was so perfect! Darien Tibbitts did my flowers. (@darian_floral)

Real Bride: Elizabeth

Elizabeth wore a lace and chiffon wedding gown designed by Moonlight Bridal. We are quite obsessed with her wedding photos on a beautiful Oklahoma farm!
My husband’s name is Tanner Green. I was friends with his roommates and met through them and starting hanging out as a group every day for about two weeks. I decided that he was pretty dang cute and that I actually liked him more than a friend, but I didn’t know if he liked me back. We went long boarding down Provo Canyon and he stayed back with me to “make sure I was safe”. At that moment, I knew he liked me. He asked me on a date and the rest is history (minus our little break because I thought I still wanted to be single with my girls and party life up, but I couldn’t go 3 days without talking to him! Ha!)ghjlGreenWedding-475

We got married on July 18th, 2015 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints temple.GreenWedding-109 GreenWedding-157 GreenWedding-182
I don’t really know the theme of our wedding, but I would describe it as soft, boho, glam? Ha! All I knew what that I wanted pink, gold and light blue, with flowers and sequins.  My mom and sister helped make my vision come to life! They helped pick out the most perfect venue at the McGranahan Barn (google, facebook, Instagram them because it is the cutest barn you will ever see!!!). My mom and sister own a vintage rental company, where they rent out furniture and other décor for photo-shoots, weddings, etc. They had all the perfect pieces and colors to go with my color scheme. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding venue and décor. It was more than what I dreamed – magical!

For my wedding gown, I knew I wanted something light and flawy because I loved the free spirit, boho-ish look and also Oklahoma was going to be dang hot in July. I fell in love with the Moonlight Bridal chiffon and lace gown as soon as I tried it on. The chiffon was the perfect material and I loved the lace. I also wanted a little bling, so the rhinestones on the dress with the belt were the perfect touch.

Advice I have for brides who are currently planning is that you shouldn’t sweat the small stuff. I know a LOT goes into planning a wedding, but if you can keep your eye on what is most important, your marriage, then planning will go a lot more smoothly.GreenWedding-277

I loved working with Avenia!! They were so helpful on helping my dream dress come to life. Nancy was SO great with helping me alter my dress to fit my personality and me. I would definitely recommend Avenia to soon-to-be brides!GreenWedding-531GreenWedding-496

Real Bride: Elsha

Beautiful Elsha wore a blush colored wedding gown designed by Justin Alexander on her summer wedding day.
Lawrence Mckay Christenson and I met at UVU in October, we both were in this leadership program and one of the projects was building a haunted house for UVU. We exchanged numbers and he invited me to go to an Institute dance later that night, but our first date was the haunted house once it was finished. We were married in the Payson Temple on July 18th, 2015.12032775_500027126837404_5992521380969346281_o
When we went to Avenia I already knew what I wanted in my dress. We picked out 2 dresses that fit what I was looking for. The first dress I tried one was the one I liked best, and right when I put it on I knew I had to have this dress! It was perfect! I wanted a dress that I wouldn’t see on anybody else’s, and this dress was just that.12091326_500020703504713_2277986329684919609_o
I really like the shabby-chic/woodsy look and we just wanted it to be a big party, so that’s what we went for for our wedding. We did the reception in his parent’s backyard because it’s beautiful. Everything was wood and covered with wild flowers. We strung up lights and hung flowers in jars, had a band, and just partied. It was so much fun! It even started to downpour when we were about to start our first dance together, but that didn’t stop us! We danced in the rain and it made that moment even more romantic, it was amazing!

Real Bride: Megan

Megan wore a soft and romantic Chantilly lace and chiffon custom gown on her wedding day. It perfectly complimented her “feminine bohemian” styled wedding.www.camilialundphoto.comMy husband’s name is Jackson Deere and we met 3 years ago through mutual friends at BYU. We were friends from afar for a couple years and both dated other people, but finally the stars aligned and we went on our first date in November 2014. One rainy day in May, we went on a waterfall hike with his little sister (so I didn’t suspect anything!), and at the top of the waterfall he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. We were soaking wet and happy as could be! We got married on July 25, 2015 in the Mount Timpanogos temple in a very special and sacred ceremony. Our reception was in his parent’s backyard in Alpine, and it was perfect and everything we dreamed it would be. We’ve now been married for almost 2 months, and I can truly say they’ve been the happiest 2 months of my life!www.camilialundphoto.combride and groom
I chose the design of my custom gown from lots of Pinterest photos, and a photo of one of Nancy’s custom gowns from a couple years ago. I wanted something beautiful and simple, with delicate lace on top and a light, flowy skirt on bottom. I have red hair and slightly fair skin and stark white colors wash me out, so we chose to do a champagne colored body with off-white chiffon and lace overlay. All of the staff at Avenia were very friendly and nice to work with, and Nancy was amazing! She designed and created an exquisite dress just as I’d envisioned. At each fitting she examined the dress and if she didn’t like a tiny pucker or the way the fabric was laying or anything else, she would pin it and have it redone. I loved how meticulous, careful, and passionate she was about her work. It seemed that she was just as invested in the dress as I was, and truly wanted to make it perfect for me.www.camilialundphoto.com

www.camilialundphoto.comMy color scheme was plum + sage green + neutrals, and my florist described my style as “feminine bohemian.” I wanted to keep the reception décor simple and laid back, but with that feminine boho feel. For the centerpieces, I used antique doilies from my mother and grandmother, spray-painted picture frames from DI, gorgeous flowers in blue mason jars and skinny vases, and little advice books with questions for guests to fill out. My aunt made our fabulous cake, and our florist decorated it with beautiful flowers. Our photographer was incredible and took the most beautiful photos.www.camilialundphoto.com



www.camilialundphoto.comMy advice for other brides is to follow your vision for your wedding, but be willing to compromise and let go of things that really don’t matter. Be kind to your families and the vendors, because they’re the ones helping you make your wedding dreams come true, and be especially kind to your fiancé. Don’t spend time being stressed or upset about things that won’t matter in a couple of months anyway! It can be easy to get caught up in planning every detail of the reception but don’t let that blind you to the most important thing…you’re marrying your best friend and the love of your life, which is the most blessed, happy, and best decision you’ll ever make!www.camilialundphoto.com
