Karley & Marcus's Barn Wedding

Cathedral ceilings with lights hanging from every possible corner. Rustic farm tables laden with fresh flowers, truffles, peach napkins, and even fresh peaches on the table.

A giant barn provides the perfect backdrop for Marcus and Karley's wedding.

"Marcus and I met when we were next door neighbors living in Newport Beach, California. What started as a friendship blossomed into a relationship over the summer and soon we were traveling together each time we went to see our families up north. Marcus proposed 2 years after dating at my favorite spot in the world- Loon Lake, Washington. He hung bistro lights and we danced as the sunset and then he got down on one knee! Of course I started planning our wedding the next day!

I have always loved backless dresses and wanted one to match my love for simplicity with the ability to "wow" with the details. When I tried on the "Amy" Galia Lahav, I fell in love instantly. The fitted body and low back with intricate lace detail were absolute perfection. I immediately knew I wanted to marry Marcus in this dress.My favorite part about the wedding was surprising Marcus by entering on a firetruck, sirens and all! Since he is a firefighter, I wanted to have this surprising entrance for him.

I truly hope my dress can bring as much happiness to another bride as it did for me. Every woman feels beautiful on their wedding day (as they should!) but I can't even count how many compliments I received that my dress was "The most beautiful thing they had ever seen." It truly was jaw dropping and yet still comfortable. I have never felt so beautiful, and of course Marcus loved it too! With the money from selling our dress, we hope to prepare for our honeymoon baby due this March."

Love this platform very user friendly and connects buyers and sellers who are wanting the next Bride to enjoy their wedding in a dress they might not been able to afford otherwise. I’ve been a seller selling my daughters dress for a wedding that didn’t happen (thank goodness) to buying my first wedding dress which is why I have this email to rate ……and will be selling my daughters wedding dress soon from her wedding!
