    We adore an outdoor wedding full of simple sweetness and country elegance like the one we are sharing with you today! Mary and Thomas tied the knot at Pheasant Field Bed & Breakfast, a lovely historic brick farmhouse in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Mary looked beautiful in our Isla dress, which she had picked it out as her future wedding dress before she was even engaged! We adore the charmingly simple white bouquet of daisies, roses, and hydrangea she carried to wed her love and her simple bridal look with dainty jewelry and her hair swept up in a cute updo. Congratulations, Mary and Thomas!

    We were married on August 10th 2013 at 4pm at Pheasant Field Bed & Breakfast in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. We both wanted a simple, sweet outdoor wedding. We had a quick ceremony and were whisked away to enjoy dinner, dancing, and fun times with our families and friends.

    My husband and his brother, Luke, are identical twins. So, obvious choice, he was also the best man. All of us live together in Carlisle and are best friends. Probably sounds different for most people, but we wouldn't have it any other way. My friend's mom, Therese, is to thank for the photos.

    When purchasing my dress, my friend, Lindsay, originally found your site. She saw a wedding dress for herself on the site but they were ‘out of stock'. I came across the Isla dress. I thought (we weren't engaged yet, but we were at the end of the week) “When we get engaged/married, I must have this dress,” I thought. I have a lot of long dresses and I just love that style. We were engaged on August 9th 2012 and a week or so afterwards, I purchased my wedding dress. It was perfect.

    We took the entire year of engagement to plan the wedding and I couldn't ask for a better partner in life than Thomas. We dated for 4 years. So when we got engaged, it was just magical. We both planned our wedding together which made it easier and less stressful on both of us.

    There is something so wonderfully beautiful about a rustic, natural wedding in a Southern Texas city. For Alwyn and her husband, Matthew, they felt at home surrounded by friends and family. It was incredibly important for both the bride and groom to keep their wedding day relaxed with simple elegance. With an ombré blue wedding cake, beautiful tea lights hanging and rustic candle lanterns, this celebration relished in honesty and romance.

    Alwyn looked stunning in our Isla bridal gown along with her bridesmaids. Celebrating their lovely Southern wedding at Pecan Springs, their families and friends gathered from all around town for the sweet event. They wanted a very relaxed and semi-formal look and Pinterest gave them a lot of ideas for a flowy and natural look.

    My husband and I love the southern country feel. For our wedding, we wanted it to be relaxed but elegant. Thus, we wanted a rustic southern wedding theme. I fell in love with my dress and my bridesmaids dresses from Ruche. The effortless flowy look was just what I was looking for. We could not have made our wedding perfect without our family and friends. Almost everyone  pitched in to make it a wonderful day. We could not have asked for more and we are very blessed to have these people in our lives. 

    We didn’t want a cookie cutter hotel reception but instead something that says ‘this is us’. We love the outdoors and Pecan Springs brings that woody country rustic feel that is very organic and fresh. When we first went to the location we knew it was the place to celebrate our marriage and we loved everything about our wedding day.

    After waiting days for non-stop rain to clear, Amanda and Steve were graced with a beautifully sunny day as friends and family joined to celebrate their wedding. Looking at pictures, you wouldn't think their magical day was almost entirely made up of DIY ideas and collections from thrift shops. With a little bit of planning and dreaming of their perfect wedding, this beautiful bride and groom made all of their dreams come true for their special day.

    Our wedding and reception were held in a restored bank barn from 1844. Steve and I wanted our wedding to be reflective of our own life, love and style. To keep costs down, we booked our venue three months out. We also made our own invitations, favors, centerpieces, collected China from thrift shops for months, and found a vintage globe to use as our guest book. My talented mother also made our wedding cake and cupcakes.

    The three days leading up to our wedding, it was non stop rain. I woke up on June 8th, to a beautiful sunny day! Walking into our venue that day and seeing everything come together was so incredible. I was in my dress, everything was in its place; it was almost time! Seeing my handsome husband standing at the altar was something I will never forget. I couldn’t wait to be his wife.

    The reception was filled with music, good food and great friends. Our wedding day was perfect. We are so happy that all of our friends and family were able to be there to share such an unforgettable day with us! I don’t think I will ever get tired of looking back at our wedding album.

    Something borrowed, something new, something old and something... custom made! When we found these custom designs from Laura of Paper Mothball Vintage, we couldn't help but fall beside ourselves in excitement. Her designs are so unique and vintage and beautiful that there really is no other design quite like it out there. After finding inspiration from her husband, Laura has found her perfect nitch in the world of artistic, vintage custom made wedding dresses. Hear more about how she plans each design, the imagination that comes to life and her passion behind it all.

    I am a vintage fashion designer living in Brooklyn, NY. I began sewing as a hobby, and am mostly self taught, using vintage sewing patterns from the 1940s. I designed and draped my wedding dress. It took me about 2 weeks to make. The overall design was inspired by the 1930s which is my favorite time period, because I think it was the most glamorous.

    The waist is hand quilted and beaded from a vintage 1920s dress that was completely falling apart. I was really glad to save some of that, and give it a new life. The back buttons up with vintage 1950s set crystal buttons.

    I made a bow tie out of the remnant fabric from my dress for my husband. He complimented the bow tie with vintage cream suspenders.

    My husband is from Japan, and witnessing his journey to follow his dream inspired me to follow mine. Designing for me is an escape into my own world where I am free to express myself. I love being there, although it always has its stressful moments. I like working through the problems that always arise with a garment, its more rewarding.

    If you are going to get married in a historic old castle, you need a dress fit for a princess. And Klara was as radiant as a royal in our Margarete In Sand gown to marry her own Prince Charming, Matej! Even though it had been raining for weeks, when their wedding day came, the sun finally appeared just in time. After the ceremony, Klara and Matej and all their guests celebrated all evening in a rustic wooden barn beautifully decorated with vintage and DIY elements. Hear the story from the bride herself, and get ready to be whisked off your feet and carried away by these romantic nuptials.

    We were married in an old castle and the afternoon reception and party took place in a countryside farm-house with beautiful booming surroundings. Our bar, photo-booth and jazz band were placed in a wooden barn which was decorated by vintage furniture and accessories, gypsophila flowers and a lot of pompoms in salmon pink and vanilla colour. Big thanks goes to my lovely girlfriends which helped me with making over hundred of them from the scratch!

    I combined various handmade and vintage decoration which had a great sentimental value for me. I used my grandma's lace for the bouquet, candle holders, vases and the ribbons for our guests were handmade by my mom.

    After weeks of waiting for the weather to calm down, finally a few days before our wedding day the sky cleared up and the rain and floods were over.

    Our entire wedding day was relaxed and merry. We enjoyed every minute of it.

    This wedding photographer has an eye for beauty! Kimberly Chau is a Houston, TX based wedding photographer who captures timeless moments through passion and natural artistry. Kimberly gave us some of her precious time in describing the details behind her recent photo shoot (where the beautiful bride looked gorgeous wearing our bridal gown!)

    Recently, I was inspired to photograph a styled session that was romantic, classic, and spring fresh. So I teamed up with the best of the crop here in Houston to make it happen!

    The talented work of Patti and her daughter Ashley with Recollection Vintage Rentals made this gorgeous garden shoot come to life! They styled an amazing inspiration at the intimate and lovely River Oaks Garden Club with the prettiest florals by Carol with Something Special in Flowers.

    There is something so understated and whimsically beautiful about a bohemian, rustic bride. With loose, natural curls wrapped perfectly around lace headbands and pins. This effortless look is timelessly charming. We had the chance to feature our Isla gown to Jessica for her bridal inspiration shoot for Jessica White Photography. We are beside ourselves with inspiration and an even stronger love for the boho chic tenderness of the rustic bride.

    Jessica is a Utah based wedding and portrait photographer, with passion for every person she has the opportunity to meet. Discovering amazing light and playing with color, Jessica translates her artistry into every photo opportunity.

    Rain or shine we love a good wedding story here at Ruche. We couldn't help ourselves from falling in love with this story of a bride and groom who looked seamlessly happy even underneath torrential downpour! This beautiful bride wore our Gwen In Ivory, and even after withstanding hours of rain, she couldn't have looked more beautiful. Hear the story from the bride herself!

    March 2nd 2013 was a roller coaster for me. A tropical storm rolled in for the 3 hours I was getting prepped, married, and photographed. Still it was a beautiful day. Now that I look back, the dress I almost settled on can't compare to the dress I ultimately chose. It was fate that I stumbled across it a month before I was getting married and it fit like a glove. My mother in law gave me a little bit of Edwardian lace featuring a rose to symbolize the white rose of York, as I was about to become one. It matched the fabric perfectly and was a delicate addition to an already amazing dress. I had to wear a little shawl as a last minute cover up against the torrential rain, which of course ruined my hair, but it managed to work well in the overall look anyway.

    It's such a gorgeous, comfortable dress that I can't believe I only wore it once. My husband keeps telling me we're going out to take proper photos someday when the sun comes out! Truly this dress deserves a few more photos to show case it. Until then, thank you so much for this gorgeous dress for my beautiful day.
