Wedding

    Natural beauty mixed with hints of vintage make for a beautiful bridal shoot and we love the way Lauren from Love Lola incorporates both into her darling pictures! We are head over heels for her vintage bridal gown that brings a simple kind of beauty to the shoot with its delicate lace and ruffles. She also uses a vintage blue birdcage as a prop to complete the ethereal look and feel of the shoot. Her beauty and joy lights up every photo!

    I was married last May and these photos are from my bridal shoot. My dress is vintage, and my flower crown is handmade from Etsy. My wedding was vintage-inspired, making my bridal shoot vintage inspired as well. We also incorporated a "midsummer night's dream" feel to it. Marrying my husband was like a dream to me, and this shoot embodies that perfectly. I am so grateful to Tahni Candeleria-Holm from Joyeuse Photography for providing us with such beautiful pictures to cherish forever!

    It's always a delight to see brides so beautiful and beaming on their special day, especially when they choose to include Ruche as a part of their celebration! Pamela and Micah tied the knot last year in a darling vintage-inspired wedding ceremony complete with rustic decor, sweet treats, and our Isla Wedding Gown.

    To make this wedding day even more wonderful, Pamela and Micah were able to stay under a $2,500 budget! Here's how they did it:

    Micah and I sat down before any planning started and listed out the top things we had to have in our wedding and set a realistic budget and anything extra would have to be either handmade or borrowed. When you create a budget and stick to it, you can easily create a beautiful wedding for a price within your budget. Something creative that we did and saved us a ton of money was a pot-luck dessert reception. In the invites we told each guest to bring their favorite dessert and it created the reception food and costs us hardly anything! Pinterest and friends who have their old wedding decor stashed in storage will be your best friends.

    Engagement photographs are such a wonderful thing to have to help you remember an amazing chapter in your life and finding the right photographer is just as important! We're in love with the way that Caroline Tran captures the pure bliss in this styled shoot for her Propel Workshop with Lovely Jubilee (which also produced this Valentine's shoot with our clothing!). Our sweet bridesmaid dress dazzles in the sunlight and against the beautiful greenery for a picture perfect shot.

    During our visit to Utah for the Vintage Whites Market event, we had the pleasure of meeting Jessie, a darling Ruchette with a sweet personality and vibrant smile. Before our encounter, she sent us photographs from her wedding that we simply adored. Continue reading to see Jessie and Wesley's wedding photos and hear a little bit of their love story.

    Wesley and I are coming up on our 3rd Wedding anniversary already. I am still so in love with our wedding though. We are high school sweethearts and I met Wes when I was just 15. Finished high school and college together and we were off to marriage and 'real life!' We were married in the backyard of a beautiful Bungalow with budding Spring gardens and twinkling lights. Our family and friends all dressed up in '40s vintage, it was such a BLAST!

    We did have a budget for our wedding so I handmade a lot of the decorations and other things like my veil. Plus I love the sentimental value of handmade keepsakes. We had a photo booth and had everyone add some of their photos to our guest book, it's one of my most treasured items now!

     --Jessie, of Love Jessie

     She also sent us a few of our engagement photos that we couldn't help but share, too!

    Wishing them many more years of happiness.

    We were so excited when The Carrs Photography contacted us wanting to use our bridal collection for a photoshoot. We've seen what they've done before, so naturally we jumped at the chance to be apart of this collaboration. The photos are STUNNING and we love how the photographer, Michael, captured the ethereal essence of our Gwen gown (currently available in pink).

    During my off season, I always strive to find or create new inspiration for myself and my art. This shoot was exactly that. The wonderful people at Ruche sent me this amazing dress, headpiece, and lace gloves. Starting out in the studio, I wanted to simply capture the details of this ivory dress, and the gorgeous features of Leah, the model. The clean, elegant dress from Ruche created a shabby chic look, but when we added the headpiece it transformed the entire look into something much more flowing and airy.

    We're in love with this elopement story by Guest Blogger, Nicole. Take a peek at her romantic outdoor ceremony and swoon over how she wore our bridal dress with a clever "something blue." ♥

    Patrick and I met in FL through mutual friends back in the 2008 and from that moment we spent the rest of our days together. After dating for three years Patrick proposed and  shortly after we relocated back to my home state of  NJ.   There were several trials and tribulations that contributed to us  both putting off making our decision on where we would get married that would "keep everyone happy" regarding location/travel.
    We had a vacation planned to visit Seattle in November 2012 when the idea occurred to us. We should just elope while we're in WA state! We did some research and found the perfect venue to hold our private elopement. It was called TreeHouse Point in Issaquah, WA. This place is a sight to see with towering trees draped in green moss and  cozy tree-houses. Our elopement package included an officiant who perfectly personalized our ceremony, an amazing photographer, a talented florist who through emailing photos created my  beautiful bouquet and a one night stay  inside the treehouse of our choice. The main house was even a bed and breakfast! It was just the most romantic place.

    Being that it was just the two of us there were no distractions, no worrying about if everyone else was happy just Patrick and I gazing deeply into each others eyes as we read aloud our own vows. What a perfect start we had, we wouldn't change a thing. Our wedding under the trees was simply romantic and absolutely unique.
    With less than one month to prepare I was on a mission for the perfect dress. I had seen Ruche's bridal collection and adored it, but I was skeptical about ordering my wedding dress online. So I continued to look for something similar in stores and continued to come up empty handed. Nothing compared to Ruche's vintage accents and attention to detail, so I took the plunge and placed my order and boy was I happy I did. Ruche had exactly what I was looking for,  it fit beautifully and I couldn't have been more pleased.

    --Nicole
