Ellen + John | Marchesa Real Wedding From Czar Goss Photography

They say when you find your wedding dress, you just know.  Bride, Ellen, is a fashion blogger and originally saw her gown in a looklook. Years later, she purchased the hard-to-find gown online, sight unseen. She was right, the dress was totally amazing and was beautiful at her outdoor California wedding.

Ellen’s now selling the dress at an amazing discount, so some lucky bride-to-be can scoop this fashion-forward gown for a steal!

Ellen + John | June 18th 2016 | Silverado, California

The Ceremony
Our venue itself was absolutely stunning that we didn’t want to add to much design into the venue. Rancho Las Lomas is an outdoor Spanish style villa with beautiful architecture and greenery. We got married under a small Villa with a beautiful arc that we decorated with a garland.

The Reception
While our guests were upstairs near the pool and water fountain area, the ceremony transformed into the reception area. We had white tables with peach, pink and gold details. It was outdoor under the trees and bistro lighting. Our floral arrangements included peonies, roses, lemon leaf and Cafe Au Laits.

Ellen’s Wedding Dress Search
I tried on 2 dresses at Vera Wang and 1 at Monique Lhuillier. I actually found my dress online by luck. I saw this dress few years back on Marchesa’s lookbook online. It wasn’t available anywhere! I wasn’t even engaged and I would search online to see if any third party retailer had the dress. few years later, I was casually shopping online when I came across this listing on a consignment website. It was brand new, still in box. I bought it immediately! Never tried it on till it came to my house and never regretted my decision!
