We love when creativity and love are combined to create the perfect wedding atmosphere. Surely, Olvi’s bride Emily’s DIY wedding is one of our favorites. With its little cute details and a bride like an angel, these wedding photos will charm you.
”Brett and I met about 5 1/2 years ago through my best friend. Being only 17 years old and in high school, and Brett being 6 years older, we got to know each other for an about a year. Though there was lots of flirting before, we finally became a couple when I turned 18 haha. The rest is history! We have now lived together for the majority of our relationship, and have the sweetest little pup!
Brett and I got married on Cinco De Mayo, and it was the best day ever! Our DIY wedding in the backyard of my groom’s aunt and uncle’s house was everything we could have dreamed of. Brett had only proposed 9 months before in Santa Barbara on our four year dating anniversary. We knew we wanted something simple, intimate, and beautiful! When the house was offered we never looked anywhere else. Through all the crafting, and hard work, our dream wedding finally blossomed!
Now, to the dress! On my first day of wedding dress shopping, I had tried on multiple dresses. Don’t get me wrong, trying on wedding dresses is so fun, and you feel beautiful in every single one, but none of the dresses were THE ONE. We finally made it to Archive Bridal in Carlsbad, CA, and immediately my consultant told me about this Olvi’s dress that she said was perfect for me! When it was going to be the first dress I tried on there, I thought there is no way this is going to be the dress, but let’s try it. When I finally put the dress on, it fit like a glove, and was more than I ever dreamed of! The material was unbelievable! And the lace details were beautiful! I knew it was the dress I needed to get married in! Archive and Olvi’s were amazing too! I told them I wanted to fill in a tiny bit of the lower back and there were no questions asked! After just a couple alterations, the dress became a part of our wedding day! I am so happy I found my Olvi’s dress, I got multiple compliments, I was comfortable all day long, and I felt so beautiful!
Thank you Olvi’s for making the most amazing dress!!”
