Warm-Toned Rustic Outdoor Wedding: Style BL219 Sweet
What’s more beautiful than an outdoor wedding with a sprinkling of rain? A summer shower in the middle of August took Ania and Andrey by surprise on their big day, but a huge rainbow at the end of their wedding ensured that this couple would have the most picturesque “I do!” Beloved Bride Ania wore Style BL219 Sweet, one of our favorite ballgowns. Feminine and flirtatious floral lace decorates the bodice and blooms toward the twirl-worthy, layered tulle skirt, perfectly complementing this rustic outdoor wedding! Bursting with warm toned colors, happy tears and groomsmen in plaid (swoon), this uniquely charming wedding day has captured our hearts.
Keep scrolling to hear the story of how Ania fatefully met her husband Andrey when he took her order at a coffee shop, and how she knew Style BL219 Sweet was the gown for her! Be sure to visit a Beloved by Casablanca Bridal retailer near you to find your own dream wedding dress.
Describe your experience of saying “yes to the dress!
“The first bridal dress shop I went to was called “Something Blue” in Puyallup, WA. I browsed through the boutique, and picked out a few dresses I liked. Beloved BL219 was actually the very first dress I tried on, and then I went on to try others at the same shop. After that I had a few other places I went to try on many (many) more dresses. However, I kept thinking about BL219, and I knew that it was the one.”
“It was everything I wanted! I loved it for the fluffy skirt, and the lace florals that were on top but faded oh so perfectly into the skirt. I also loved the V-neck, the skinny beaded straps, and the open back (so perfect for summer wedding!). I went back to “Something Blue”, they took my measurements, and placed an order. I could hardly wait for my future husband to see me in that dress.”
Tell us your love story!
“We ran into each other at a coffee shop Andrey worked at. I was a student at that time, and was on a break between classes. I went to go grab a cup of coffee, and Andrey was the one that took my order. I didn’t think of it much, as I went on with my busy student life. But two months go by, we meet again at our mutual friend’s birthday party.”
“He looked very familiar, but I couldn’t remember where I’d seen him before. Andrey took his sweet time to come up and introduce himself. At the end of the night, I left first, and Andrey didn’t get a chance to get my contact info. So he asked his friend about my social media, and contacted me that way.”
“We started chatting more, and agreed to go out and grab some coffee. He dressed up so nice, and brought me a rose on our first date, which has never happened before, so I knew there was something special about him. The rest is history.”
What is your favorite thing about your husband?
If I were to be honest, his love for Jesus. It makes all the difference in the world, and our marriage.
What is your favorite moment from your wedding?
“Our wedding was outside, and believe it or not, out of all (literally all) days in August, our wedding day was the only day it rained! It was pouring down rain, about 1-2 hours before ceremony, and we all were freaking out (especially me).”
“But in the end it all worked out. It stopped raining, people were able to set up and decorate, and for the rest of the day it didn’t rain. Thank God. Towards the evening, during our dancing, we got this amazing beautiful full rainbow across the sky. My hubby and I danced in the grass right under it, and it was just the most perfect thing ever.”
Do you have any advice to other brides?
“Enjoy every moment of your day. Don’t focus on the bad. Something small always goes wrong (although that rain was pretty big), but enjoy it.”
