Hey girl hey!

Meet our beautiful bride Braelyn!

Dressed in a romantic A-line Stella York gown, Braelyn looks absolutely perfect for her summer wedding!

Before walking down the aisle, the gorgeous bride got ready with her {10!} bridesmaids…

That illusion top, though! SO good!

Braelyn took it to another level with her amazing flowers! She worked with Lake Effect Florals Design Studio to create her gorgeous bouquets.

Yasss we love the pop of color!

Braelyn and her husband Jacob were married at County Line Orchard.

They held their ceremony within the actual orchard and the setting could not have been more beautiful!

The reception was just a short tractor ride away in the Big Barn.

Dreamy string lights hung from the ceiling and the smell of apple cinnamon donuts {mmm donuts} filled the air.

This is one reception we definitely would not mind attending!

Now that I want a donut, let’s get to know the newlyweds!

How did they meet?

“We are high school sweethearts! Good ol' Portage High School. I was a senior and he was a junior.”

How did Jacob pop the question?

“We currently live in DC and we were home for the holidays. His family has a big party every New Years Eve and he proposed in front of everyone.”

Fun!! Was Braelyn surprised?

“Complete surprise..wasn't expecting it at all!”

Let’s talk dress shopping {our fave subject}!

“I thought I was going to get a totally different style dress. I originally was looking for tight mermaid then as I started trying them on I realized I loved A-line. My best friend recommended the tulle bottom. Best friends know best! I just knew it was the one..I never felt so beautiful.”

When it came to wedding planning, what was Braelyn’s favorite part?

“All the decorations and flowers! I love decorating so browsing on Etsy was so fun and working with my florist was one of the best experiences.”

What about her least favorite part?

“Budget..definitely brought on stress during but was WELL worth it afterwards!”

When the big day had arrived, Braelyn’s favorite moment happened at the ceremony…

“Seeing Jacob for the first time as I was walking down the aisle. We didn't do a first look so it was a very emotional moment for both of us.”

Finally, I asked Braelyn for her best advice for current brides planning their own special day!

“Don't stress too much! No matter what, you have people surrounding out that will make sure your day is absolutely perfect.

Have fun with the planning and embrace every minute it goes by WAY too fast. I would do anything to do it again!”

Congratulations, Braelyn and Jacob!! We are so excited for you guys! Thank you for sharing your gorgeous wedding with us! Check out more of their beautiful pictures in the gallery below!
