Real Mia Grace Bride: Wedding of Ellen and Brendan

After meeting their first semester in college and a surprise proposal, Ellen and Brendan tied the knot in the most beautiful wedding ceremony this spring! We are excited to share their wedding photos and love story with you!


“[My experience at Mia Grace] was so wonderful. My twin sister and I went together to look for dresses. [My stylist] was amazing with celebrating both of our engagements but giving us our own individual experience and focusing on one of us at a time.” - Ellen



Love Story

Ellen and Brendan met their first semester of freshman year at college through Ellen’s friend, Rachel, who had class with Brendan. Brendan and Ellen knew each other for about two weeks before they officially began dating.


Proposal

Brendan proposed at Castlewood with Ellen’s twin sister and her husband present. Ellen was so shocked she doesn’t remember what he said at the time! Of course, she said yes! After their engagement, they met both of their families for dinner to celebrate



Wedding

Ellen and Brendan focused on simple decor with their colors being all things spring. Ellen looked absolutely stunning in her dress by Mon Cheri. The dress, bridesmaid dresses, and details all came together perfectly for their special day!


The most special parts of their wedding day were Ellen and Brendan’s first look and first dance. Ellen also loved the first look and first dance with her dad.

Ellen was most looking forward to seeing Brendan at their first look on their wedding day. She also loved the memory table of their loved ones who had passed, as they were mostly grandparents.


They also had a Bible as their guest book for guests to share their favorite verse with the newlyweds. Their faith is important to them and they loved being able to highlight it as a part of their wedding.
