Bustle Bride: Dakota Austin Argo

To wrap up the month of May, (it's flown by so quickly!) we are excited to have Dakota Austin Argo as our Bustle bride feature! Dakota and her hubby Jake tied the knot after 9 years of dating.

Dakota wore a gorgeous fitted lace gown with a bateau illusion neckline, and it was a match made in bridal heaven. She looked simply radiant on her special day. Dakota and Jake said "I do," at The Bluff at Ephesians Farm on the top of a mountain, and the photos are absolutely breathtaking. During the ceremony, the congregation huddled around Dakota and Jake and prayed over them. With the mountains in the background and the two families becoming one in the foreground, it made for such a sweet and unforgettable moment.

Dakota was a breath of fresh air when she stopped by our shop. She has the best smile and the most genuine personality. We are so thankful we had the opportunity to help sweet Dakota find the dress of her dreams. Check out the photos below from Dakota and Jake's wedding day - they are gorgeous. From the flower crown to the fierce makeup to the gorgeous bouquet, Dakota's bridal look is #goals.

We dreamed about this day for a very long time. I’ve always considered myself to be unconventional and I knew that however we did our big day, that it would be a reflection of who Jake and I are. So, we gathered the people we love on the top of a mountain on a cold, rainy day. My favorite part of our wedding was when I got out of the car to walk the aisle. I will never forget how I felt when I saw Jake and I’ve never had a more clearer understanding of how Jesus loves the church than I did in that moment. At the end of the day, you are with your favorite person in the world. It doesn’t matter how many guests you have, how much money you spent on decorations, how many traditions you can break or keep, or who else you can make happy. We just wanted to be together and did what we could to make that happen. Even down to the weather, I don’t regret a single thing about our day other than the fact that it had to end.
