Blake & Katie
A mutual friend set us up and we are so grateful she did!
Sounds cliche, but honestly it was right from the beginning. Blake just felt like home from day one. I remember before we were even dating pulling up to his driveway, getting out of the car, running up to him and being SO stoked to see each other every single time, even if it had only been a day or so. We each personally had gone through a lot to get to where we are today, so we were just so happy to have found each other.
We went on a 4-wheeler ride up in the mountains. I was getting over a cold and thought to myself "there's no way he would propose to me today since I'm sick.." but sure enough he surprised me!
I am the pickiest person on the planet so I searched and searched and searched, and felt like I could never find anything I liked! Once my photographer told me about Wear Your Love I looked it up and not only loved their dress selection but I also loved what their dresses were all about!
I was scrolling through the website and I instantly knew when I saw the Starla! It was exactly what I was looking for. Comfortable, flowy, unique but still classy and timeless.
I wanted to cry. It was everything I was looking for in a wedding dress! The quality of the lace was amazing. It was so soft, not cheap-feeling and scratchy. I put it on and was amazed at how perfectly it fit my body. I loved that there were no tight seams, wires, etc., I had never tried on a dress more comfortable and flowy and just straight-up gorgeous! It was perfect for our Maui wedding.
Maui Intimate Elopement. Just the two of us! It was so romantic and special. Then we came home and had a celebration with our closest friends and family!
Paradise! No venue needed. Just the beautiful Maui beaches and mountains!

5 out of 5 stars.
Congratulations Blake & Katie!
May the years ahead be filled with lasting joy for you two.

My husband and I decided to meet my parents in Panama and explore the country together. On the third day, we decided to do a coffee tour in a beautiful town called Boquete. We learned how the coffee was processed from the bean to coffee grounds. At the end of the tour, we had the chance to make and drink our own coffee. After several shots of espresso, we decided to go up a hill and take a picture with the mountains behinds us. Before I knew it, he was down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Second best day of my life apart from my wedding day!!
I can't remember how I first discovered Wear Your Love. I fell into a few Pinterest and Instagram rabbit holes while wedding planning. Once I discovered Wear Your Love, I knew they had exactly the type of dress I was looking for. I fell in love with the elegant simplicity of each of their gowns.
What went through your mind when the Wear Your Love box arrived at your doorstep, and you pulled out your dress for the first time?
I was so excited to open the box and try it on, I could hardly stand it. I could tell how beautiful it was from the moment I got the top off the box. The dress was perfect! When pulling it out, I noticed how soft it was! The material was stretchy, soft and so comfortable! It was everything I wanted.
