Megan and Jack’s beautiful wedding at the Home Ranch outside Steamboat Springs, Colorado, is infused with such an effortless cool and a sense of serenity that shines through Elicia Bryan‘s gorgeous photos. Megan (who, we can’t help notice, has a huge smile in every photo) chose the Jenny Packham Leila gown, a dress that exudes cool-girl attitude and an easygoing glamour that is perfect for this self-described “banjo dance party” wedding. Topped off with chic gold Emmy London shoes (also named Leila – what a coincidence!) and an Art Deco-eqsue Maria Elena Headpiece, Megan looks comfortable yet completely memorable in her wedding day finery.
After her wedding, Megan left the nicest online review for us! We loved hearing about her experience at Little White Dress! She said, “I wish it were possible to give LWD 27stars. Even then that wouldn’t be enough. The dress, accessories and shoe selection are gorgeous, perfectly curated, and the entire staff is incredible. LWD sets itself far above other wedding dress shops by making you feel like the most important bride in the whole world throughout the entire process.”
Wishing Megan and Jack a lifetime of happiness, love, and banjo dance parties!
We love a wedding that mixes elegance with a rustic setting, and Kenyon and Mike’s July wedding at Spruce Mountain Ranch does just that. With a very ‘Town & Country’ feel to their stylish nuptials, from a wreathed horse to a groom with some seriously dapper duds, this Colorado wedding is a refreshing sight. Kenyon chose an equally stylish gown from Little White Dress – the absolutely stunning Rivini Fabrizia gown – and a matching veil. The Fabrizia gown has a beautifully corseted lace bodice, an asymmetrical drop-waist, and the dreamiest layered tulle skirt with horsehair (netted tulle) trim.
Being surrounded by so much wedding beauty each day, all of us at Little White Dress have had more than a little time to think about our own wedding style (a perk of the job!). You can learn so much about someone based on what their dream wedding would be, don’t you agree? So that you can get to know Little White Dress stylist (and resident boho goddess) Jessica, she is sharing her dream wedding inspiration. Unsurprisingly, it’s full of the most breathtakingly free-spirited details – and of course a healthy does of fabulous fashion.
This is Little White Dress bridal stylist Jessica! Isn’t she pretty?
Jessica says: “My dream wedding would be a bohemian beach elopement! A beach in Belize, or the south of France would more than achieve the ‘swept away’ feeling I’m going for. My guests would kick off their shoes and feel the sand under their feet. The sunset and a warm breeze would be what greets them as they gather for the wedding. After a short and sweet ceremony, there would be nothing but dancing, good food, and tropical cocktails to liberate guests of all obligations and burden. A vacation for all involved and a simple celebration of love. No timeline, no seating chart, and no worries! The color scheme would be shades of natural elements like sandy taupe, fiery coral, and deep-sea blue. By the end of the evening, my new husband and I would cool off in the turquoise waters of the ocean. (My custom Claire Pettibone gown and all!)”
See what inspires LWD stylist Jessica! (And remember, our expert stylists can help you find the perfect dress and accessories no matter what your own dream wedding is!)

The day after Elise and John’s wedding at the El Dorado Royale resort on the Mexican Riviera Maya (see Part 1 for the beautiful wedding day!), the newlyweds put their wedding finery back on for photos that were all about fun in the sun. While Elise’s lace Lis Simon ‘Farlow’ gown undoubtedly got a little… less clean… as a result, we hesitate to call this a “trash the dress” session (ok, maybe because that phrase hurts our hearts a little, being that we treat our wedding gowns like the delicate beauties they are!). Rather than focusing on “trashing” her dress, though, this day-after photo session is all about basking in that just-married glow and squeezing every ounce of fun out of their gorgeous Mexican wedding weekend. When done this way, we say YES WAY to doing a day-after photo session. For brides who would love a day-after session but cringe at the thought of their gown getting a major dose of chlorine, sand, and sea water (we totally get you) – a white sundress would work just as well!
