Kelsea & Bradley’s Wedding

Kelsea and Bradley said “I do” surrounded by lush greenery, delicate wildflowers, and the dreamy mountainscape of Grinnel Glacier.

Not only did the ASSOULINE gown perfectly match Kelsea’s wedding theme, it gave her a newfound confidence in her body. Of her ASSOULINE gown, Kelsea said: “I can’t even tell you the number of compliments I received on my Tara Lauren wedding gown! As a curvy girl, I’ve never felt totally confident in my body and originally wanted an A-line gown to cover up my ‘problem’ areas. The second I tried on a form fitting gown, my mind changed and my confidence grew! I saw the ASSOULINE online and knew immediately that was it – not only was it unique, but it perfectly matched our theme. I was finally able to try it on at my 4th bridal appointment and had my special moment. It’s so stunning!”

Tell Us Your Love Story

How did you meet?

We attended a mutual friends’ housewarming party, which ironically, I had no plans of attending as I was preparing to move the next day! A friend convinced me to stop by, and little did I know that going to that party ended up being one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! Bradley and I hit it off that night and the rest is history.

How did he put a ring on it?

He made me hike 12 excruciating miles for my ring! But seriously, he proposed with a video he made of us over the years at the top of Grinnell Glacier in Glacier National Park. Hands down, the most beautiful setting for a proposal and well worth the blistered feet!

Where did you draw inspiration from?

From our engagement! I fell in love with Glacier National Park, from the dreamy greenery and wildflowers to the stunning mountainscape. We have a lot of love for the outdoors so our location and inspiration were no brainers for us.

What made the wedding personal to you?

So much thought went into every little detail. We spent a huge chunk of our budget on our venue and my dress, so a good majority of our decor I DIY’d which made it all more special. But I think what was most personal was our vows. I thought I’d be nervous writing and reading my own, but I’ve never been more at ease in my life. They were very ‘us’!

What were you most nervous or excited about?

I’m pretty (ok, obsessively) particular about certain things, so I was nervous of letting go of control of the decor. Little did I know I wouldn’t sweat the small stuff at all!

As for most excited, I would say a tie between the first look and just dancing the night away with our loved ones. The first look jitters were real, but seeing Bradley and holding him made everything slow down and I was finally able to feel completely relaxed after that moment. As for the party… I’m going to go out on a limb and say we threw the party of the year! It was such a blast and a night I’ll never forget.

Now, the most important part – the Dress!

Tell us about your dress? 

I can’t even tell you the number of compliments I received on my Tara Lauren wedding gown! As a curvy girl, I’ve never felt totally confident in my body and originally wanted an A-line gown to cover up my ‘problem’ areas. The second I tried on a form fitting gown, my mind changed and my confidence grew! I saw the ASSOULINE online and knew immediately that was it – not only was it unique, but it perfectly matched our theme. I was finally able to try it on at my 4th bridal appointment and had my special moment. It’s so stunning!

What stockist did you get it from?

The Bridal Room

What was your most memorable moment from your day?

Right after exiting our ceremony, those few moments we had alone before our wedding party joined. I just knew we had made the best commitment of our lives. It was so surreal!
