We got married on Friday, May 3rd, 2024 at Spanish Hills Club! I wouldn’t change a single thing about our day. We were surrounded by everyone we love from all our life chapters the entire day… and we had an amazing dance floor! My husband and I have known each other since high school. We didn’t start dating until our late 20s but we had kept in touch over the years through a mutual friend. That mutual friend married us and it was absolutely perfect! The high school versions of us would’ve never believed this was what in store for us, but I am incredibly grateful this is how it all worked out 🙂 I don’t think I can pick one favorite moment so here are a few – Making my entrance on stairs (just like A Cinderella Story). Having our guests say a group vow so my husband and I had a minute to just look out at everyone and soak it all in. A guest accidentally ripping his pants during cocktail hour trying to make me laugh during photos. Throwing a ‘good luck’ bouquet so all my ladies were on the dance floor. A friend spontaneously performing the […]

Mitch and I got married at Calamigos Ranch. After being together for 7 years we were so excited for our big day! We know it sounds cheesy but it was the best day ever! I know the perfect dress means a lot to people but it was the most important detail to me as my now husband kept saying how excited he was to see me in my wedding dress, I knew it has to be perfect. I came to Ever After because I knew they carried Maggie Sottero but when I got to Ever After I realized the store and the people there were amazing and it was about more than just dress shopping! I found my perfect dress in the most stress free perfect store ever! Thank you to Taylor and her team for making it the best experience ever!

I stopped in to Ever After with my mom on Black Friday, not expecting to leave with “the dress”. Staff was so friendly and the overall vibe of the store was so special. As more of a “tom-boy” growing up, I had no idea what style I wanted- but when I found it- I just knew it was “the one”. The entire experience was extremely professional, enjoyable, and comfortable. I received so many compliments on my dress and my most memorable moment of the day was when a little toddler at our ceremony venue walked up to wave to me because she thought I was a princess. I told her, “you’re right, today I am.” Photo Credits: Lauren Maeve Wedding Date: September 23, 2023


It was so easy going from the get go! I lovvvved my dress from Start to finish, it was so perfect. Everything was romantic, and beautiful! And Ariel really captured our day, we just let her do her thing and let us know what her best option was. We fully trusted her, and all the photos came out beautifully!

Thank you for for everything! Ever After Bridal and its employees made dress shopping so much fun!  Alice (recommended by you) was my seamstress and she was amazing!

As a wedding photographer of 13 years, a very small, personal elopement with amazing reputable vendors I call my friends, has been a dream of mine. And it finally came true. I’ve been surrounded by gorgeous big wedding at beautiful venues all over California but we wanted something different and private. Our quick ceremony was at Ventura County Courthouse, and we shared our vows and intimate photos in our new home in Camarillo, California. We shared our day with our new blended family (our kids). It was literally the happiest day of our lives.

My husband and I met on eHarmony. Planning our wedding out of state in Brookings, OR was stressful enough along with COVID going on. During the planning process we had our original photographer we hired could no longer partake in our special day. We had to start from scratch in finding another photographer. My original florist had belly-up and closed up shop without notifying me. The way I found out was I had emailed her my adjusted order and she emailed me back with a reply of she was no longer able to do my flowers for our wedding. We had to also start from scratch in finding a new florist on such short notice. At the end everything came together and worked out. Our wedding was small and intimate. We had our wedding ceremony in a Catholic Church and our wedding reception was in my in-law’s backyard that overlooks the ocean. Talk about picturesque view. We had perfect weather on our wedding day. Everything turned out beautiful and went smoothly. Thank you to Ever After Bridal for helping me find my perfect dress that made me feel so beautiful on my wedding day.

My husband and I met in the unlikeliest of places, Tinder. With COVID everywhere wedding planning was beyond stressful! We went through the phases of debating to do something small to being able to have a safe day with our closest family and friends. We don’t want to disclose our venue as we had a falling out with the property manager and would not recommend it to others it did make for a beautiful location. The day was the perfect California weather and gorgeous skies. We were both so excited and nervous all day, we couldn’t wait to see each other. As soon as I walked down the aisle, all the stress and worry for the last year planning faded away. Of course the night flew by in a wind of dancing and talking to family and wouldn’t have had it any other way! Now if only I can make up excuses to wear my dress at least once a year 😉 Photos by Antonio

Sarah Heinrich | Wedding Date:  8/22/2020 Our wedding was originally supposed to be massive. All of our friends and family with magical details and an even more magical time. Plans changed, but the only thing that changed was the “big” part. Everything was absolutely perfect and just as magical as I’d hoped it would be, just at a much smaller scale. My dress, however, was as big and beautiful as originally. I was so happy to support Ever After when I first heard of its opening and I’m SO glad it’s where I found my dress. Everyone in the store was so sweet and attentive! I always tell my engaged friends to check out this boutique! Thank you again!
