lauren + dj

 Lauren and DJ are the cutest couple, and their rustic barn wedding was perfect for a fall wedding in October! Their fun-loving personalities were captured by Kristen Pender Photography, a Birmingham-based wedding photographer. 

For her wedding day, Lauren opted for a lace wedding dress to suit her southern wedding venue that felt like a slice of Americana. She chose the Ella Grace a-line wedding dress from our Build-A-Bride™ collection and added buttons--because who doesn’t love a wedding dress with buttons down the back? 

To further personalize her wedding dress, Lauren added our V-neck lace top in our Katie lace, a French Alencon lace perfect for a classic wedding dress look. She finished her lace wedding dress with our Susan Anita wedding dress bow detail to accent her waist and add a classic, feminine touch. We adore the vintage-inspired blue shoes Lauren wore as her “something blue” for her wedding day, and her infinity wedding band was breathtaking.

The silver blue bridesmaid dresses worn by the bridesmaids and navy blue suits worn by the groomsmen created a cohesive style among the entire wedding party, and the cool-toned color popped against the bright red barn where the couple exchanged their vows. 

Our favorite element from the wedding day was the gorgeous natural floral story created by Florals by Samantha and Missy, a team of local wedding florists in Alabama. The natural, yet dramatic greenery accented with textured florals in shades of white and blue looked stunning in the wedding bouquets and throughout the interior of the rustic wedding venue. The ruffled wedding cake by Pixie Dust Cake Designs was equally eye-catching and delicious.

The barn wedding venue came to life with strings of fairy lights draped along the entire ceiling, creating a magical atmosphere for this intimate and whimsical wedding reception. The entire day was filled with wedding traditions and captured a simple, southern style focused on the love between this sweet couple. 

Congratulations to the newlyweds Lauren and DJ--we couldn’t be happier for you both!
