Launched in 2012, Lover.ly aims to make the dog-eared folder of magazine clippings a thing of the past for brides-to-be. The digital wedding channel, which makes the planning process more simple, is bringing everything from charming real weddings to expert advice on all things bridal right to R29.
This California couple jokingly referred to their wedding as “rustic-chic-meets-vintage-barn with a French countryside twist.” They wanted everything to look pretty, easy, and feel like "them," — their decor actually came from their apartment and their DIY details (including the wooden flower boxes, the "SPIRITS" marquee, and the send-off flags) helped them personalize their celebration further. The beautiful bride had this to say about the special day: "My favorite part of my wedding day and my life is standing at the altar. I took a breath and looked at the crowd filled with all the people I love in this world, turned all the way around to look at my beautiful bridesmaids who are more like sisters than friends, and finally looked at my main man. This guy that I love more than what feels like all the love in the universe is about to become all mine. I’m actually surprised I didn’t pass out or fart — it was too much happiness for one human body to compute!"
