Kayla & Reg’s breathtaking wedding was an ethereal vision of romance in the mountains of Colorado.
Of her GIULETTA gown by Tara Lauren, Kayla said: “The words ethereal, romantic, and sexy are exactly how I would describe the GIULETTA gown. It was the first dress I tried on, and afterwards I went to every store in Denver, but I just kept coming back to GIULETTA as my favorite.”

Tell Us Your Love Story
How did you meet?
We met in 2014 on a dating app! Reg is very romantic and made sure to call me before our first date to ask me my favorite drink. He then found the best Moscow mule in Denver! That night, he picked me up and of course, came to the door. After having an incredible date at the Lohi Steakhouse we walked across the street and had a drink at the normally busy and impossible bar to get a drink at, Williams and Graham. Lucky for us, it was empty due to a blizzard. At the end of the night he walked me to my door where we had the best first kiss and the rest is history!
How did he put a ring on it?
Reg surprised me with a trip to Aspen. We got there and enjoyed a beautiful lunch, and afterwards we took a bus to Maroon Bells with our puppy Louie. Reg had hired a photographer to hide and capture our whole engagement right in front of the Maroon Bells. Afterwards we checked into our hotel where there was champagne and a private dinner waiting! We had the entire restaurant to ourselves and we ended our night dancing alone in the restaurant which was amazing!
Where did you draw inspiration from?
The mountains, and a few key words! The words that came to mind that inspired us were ethereal, romantic, and also sexy!
What made the wedding personal to you?
We intentionally had a small wedding, so that only our closest friends and family were there. That really made the day so special. We also spent a lot of time planning the ceremony and our vows. We chose to do a wine box ceremony as part of our wedding. This means that Reg and I put a copy of our vows (and in the future, love letters) and a bottle of wine in a handmade box made by my brother. Every year on our anniversary we will open the box, read our love letters to each other and enjoy a bottle of wine. We hope to keep all our love letters over the years and eventually, one day, give them to our children when we are gone.
What were you most nervous or excited about?
I was most excited to finally say my vows and be married to Reg. We had postponed our original wedding date, and ultimately were just so excited to be married to each other. I was also excited about dancing and having a great time with my friends and family!
Now, the most important part – the Dress!
Tell us about your dress?
The words ethereal, romantic, and sexy are exactly how I would describe the GIULETTA gown. It was the first dress I tried on, and afterwards I went to every store in Denver, but I just kept coming back to GIULETTA as my favorite.
What stockist did you get it from?
What was your most memorable moment from your day?
The most memorable moment of our day was hearing Reg’s vows. They were so heartfelt and words that I will cherish for a lifetime. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house after our ceremony, which made me feel that our loved ones also got to experience and feel our love as well.
Another beautiful moment I will never forget is my brother surprising me with my Grandpa’s favorite cowboy hat on the day of the wedding. My Grandpa passed away in March so it meant a lot to me. It was incredibly touching and thoughtful, and also made me feel like my Grandpa was part of my big day!
