Marie + Peter’s Denver Botanic Gardens Wedding

Marie and Peter married in a beautiful and intimate ceremony at Denver Botanic Gardens last fall. The couple chose classic, elegant touches to accent the gorgeous garden venue. Marie selected the Caerwyn gown by Robert Bullock, reminiscent of Meghan Markle’s wedding gown. Caerwyn is a silk crepe boat neck gown with open keyhole back and 3/4 length sleeve.

We’re excited to share Marie’s gown shopping experience and some of her favorite moments from her wedding day. Read on for more!


LWD: Tell us a little about your gown shopping experience. What were you looking for in a dress and how did you narrow it down to your favorites?

Marie: My gown experience was a little overwhelming at first. We stopped at 5 wedding boutiques before we stumbled into Little White Dress. I honestly had no idea what I was looking for and I had never even been to a bridal shop prior to being engaged; I had no idea what I was doing! I knew that I wanted my dress to be very classic and elegant, I wanted my dress to be form fitting and I wanted to feel comfortable in my dress. My stylist was so warm and welcoming when I was introduced to her. She made me feel so comfortable and never rushed or pressured me to make a decision. I tried on so many dresses that day and picked a few favorites. At the time, they had a trunk show and I was shown gowns from a designer I had never heard of, Robert Bullock. I took a look at some of his dresses and I fell in love with his style. I narrowed my choices down to two dresses I absolutely loved; however, I couldn't make a decision that day and LWD was in complete support of me taking as much time as I needed. I went home that night and contemplated my decision with my family. I could not have been more happy with the decision I made. I felt absolutely beautiful on my wedding day, as if the dress I chose was custom made for me only. Little White Dress was with me every step of the way, through the fittings, the veil picking and they even helped me pick out my accessories. I am and was beyond impressed with their service and the wonderful Robert Bullock.   

LWD: How did you end up deciding on your Robert Bullock wedding dress? What did you love most about your dress?

Marie: I knew Robert's designs were true to me and my personality as soon as I saw his collection. They have so much elegance and class to them, I knew I'd feel like a princess on my special day. The dress I chose was similar to the dress Meghan Markle wore on her wedding day but with a little sexy added to the back. This was the perfect spice I was looking for on my wedding day. My favorite part about my dress was the neckline and back cut-out. The train and veil paired perfectly!

LWD: What was your favorite part of your wedding? 

Marie: My favorite part of my wedding was the vows. It was as if the world went dark and silent around us. Everyone faded away and we just spoke to each other from the deepest part of our hearts. My now husband, cried as he spoke the most beautiful words to me and told me that he loves me and he always will. I will forever cherish this part of my wedding. 


LWD: Do you have any advice for brides going through the process of finding their wedding dress?

Marie: Enjoy it! I think I stressed out too much when I wasn't having that "OMG! this is the ONE" moment. It will come; just be patient. Also, do your hair and put on makeup during your dress search (if you wear any), start early and shop alone sometimes; this can be peaceful and it let's you take in the moment alone and without the pressure of your family and friends.  

LWD: Anything else you want to mention about your experience with LWD?

Marie: LWD was absolutely amazing and I received the best customer service-honestly! I never once felt as if it didn't belong-to me, this is an exceptional shop! Thank you LWD for your love, it showed in the faces of everyone I met.
