We are so, so proud of all of our Gilded Gown Brides. And we just BEAM with happiness when one of our own has their special day recognized NATIONALLY! Beautiful bride Tarah’s Rustic Boho Ceremony was recently featured at BridalPulse.com. Woo-hoo! Congrats Tarah! You so deserve the recognition!!!
We first met Tarah on the day she found her beautiful dream wedding dress with us. We loved learning more about her and her wedding plans. An avid DIYer and Pinterest Board Aficionado, Tarah shared some of her wedding ideas with us, like her desire to make dream-catchers from vintage lace. And her plan to have a rustic arbor adorned with hand-made ribbon garlands. It is so rewarding to see how lovely her projects turned out for her wedding. Tarah worked hard to make the wedding of her dreams and it is easy to see the love in every DIY! #SheMadeItHappen
Tarah complimented her boho theme with a gorgeous floral crown which incorporated her love of purple! Shanna Tate beautifully styled her hair, and her makeup was photo-ready thanks to Ren Allen! #BeautyTeamsRule
Tarah wanted a relaxed, bohemian atmosphere with a rustic feel. She found the perfect setting for her day at The Millstone, a wedding venue nestled in the picturesque countryside of Limestone, TN. The grounds are filled with natural landscaping, plus the restored antique mill provided a unique ambiance for a truly special day. Her walk down the aisle, under a canopy of trees, was stunning! Her happy hubs-to-be, Shane, watched with adoration. (FYI: Tarah and Shane were introduced by Shane’s Mother!) #ThanksMIL
Tarah and Shane make an adorable couple. Their happiness just shines!!! #TrueLoveIsBeautiful
We LOVE the “love” marquee letters that greet their friends and family members. We also LOVE that the lush greenery and florals by Food City prove that you can get awesome wedding day flowers at a GROCERY STORE! And that sign! Sigh! “Once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life, LOVE, gives us a fairy tale!” #YesWeBelieveInFairyTales
After the touching ceremony, it was time to CELEBRATE. We are very fond of desert tables, and Tarah and Shane’s did not disappoint with tons of cupcakes, pies and cakes. Check out the killer wood slice cake stands! #morecupcakes
One sure-fire way to tell that you are at a GREAT wedding? Personalized wine! Shane and Tarah’s faces are on every bottle! Cupcakes, wine AND dancing? This is a win! #GuestsGotLucky
No matter how much work goes into planning a wedding, it wouldn’t be perfect unless it had the most important ingredient. Love. Love was very evident at Tarah and Shane’s Wedding. Love between the couple was proclaimed in every secret glance, look and smile. #HerEyesWereShining
Congrats to this sweet couple on their amazing, well-planned wedding day! We feel sure they will have a very happy ever after!
