Raegen and Alex got married at Nazareth Hall in Grand Rapids, OH, one of the most stunning wedding venues in the Midwest. Their wedding featured tons of fresh greenery, beautiful baby blues, exposed brick, and classic lantern centerpieces.
Raegen mixed classic style with boho flowers in her hair. She wore a dreamy cathedral length veil for the ceremony that made her look absolutely angelic. The bridesmaids rocked the Kennedy Blue Cameron gown in Fog. The bridesmaid dresses featured boho embroidered lace tops and flowy chiffon skirts. Seriously, we don't think the Cameron dress could have flattered each 'maid more perfectly! Not to mention it looked great with the navy suits and men's ties!
The pastel blue complimented the full eucalyptus and white rose bouquets. The floral details were astounding. Props to Downtown Deco! We are total suckers for rustic florals and a soft pastel wedding palette. All of Raegen and Alex's wedding details were SO on point.
The outdoor ceremony took place under a whimsical wedding arch with a rustic brick backdrop. Stephanie Kase captured every romantic detail of Raegen and Alex's special day, including the absolute sweetest look that Raegen gave her dad before walking to her soon-to-be hubby! Seriously, our hearts melted.
One of our favorite parts of this wedding is the reception! Each table was decked out in rustic lantern centerpieces with simple greenery and white roses, which perfectly complimented the Fog accents. Since Raegen and Alex are Ohio State Buckeye alumni, they gave out buckeyes as dessert! The cherry on top was the dreamy sparkler send off to celebrate the happy couple.

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.
Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).
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. Stand up straight and do not “suck in” when taking this measurment.
Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.
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.
Depending on the fabric, a dress can be altered down up to 2 full sizes, but can be very difficult to let out as there is only about .5 inch of fabric to do so at the seams.
