Who doesn’t love a good story about high school sweethearts? Derek and Aaliyah’s happily ever after began five years ago when they met in high school. Little did either of them know, it was the beginning of a grander adventure. They’ve created endless memories over the years; traveling, competing together at several FFA field days, attending country concerts, dancing the night away at high school dances, being young at heart in Disneyland, vacationing with their families in Hawaii, and numerous other escapades.
“The adventures and memories we have made so far are just a small amount of what we hope to share in our lifetime together.”- Aaliyah Veenstra, the beautiful bride in this Rustic Country Wedding.
Photographed by the talented Catherine Leanna Photography, their wedding day was just as memorable as their time together has been. Filled with soft rustic details, romantic blush pink bridesmaid dresses, and a picture-perfect venue -- their wedding day was seriously magical.
Aailyah’s bridesmaids wore our Kennedy Blue Brooke in Blush. The color scheme of the dresses and bouquets match perfectly! And not to mention that beautiful landscape in the background!
We can't forget about the handsome fellas!
And the ceremony began...
The venue for this reception is absolutely stunning!

Taking Your Measurements
For the most accurate measurements, do not measure over your clothing. Your measurements should be taken while wearing undergarments similar to the ones you will wear with your dress. The measuring tape shouldn't be pulled too tight or have too much slack, and should always be parallel with the floor.
**Wedding apparel is typically sized differently than retail clothing, so keep in mind that it's not uncommon to find yourself requiring alterations.
Bust size: Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).
Waist size: While standing up straight, bend at the waist to one side. Take the measurement where the natural crease happens in your side. This should be a few inches above your belly button.
Hip size: Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.
Choosing your correct size
Compare these three measurements to the Kennedy Blue size chart above. It is very important that you order the largest size that corresponds to your measurements. For example, if your bust measures 40.5" (size 12), your waist measures 31" (size 10) and your hips measure 41.5" (size 8), we advise that you order a size 12, and get your dress altered down to custom fit your body. Ordering anything smaller than a size 12 would not fit in the bust area. Please note: Our bridal gown size chart is different than the bridesmaids sizing and is listed below.
