Two Brides Fairytale Wedding Day at Evermore – Cassidy & Dayna

Cass and Dayna’s beautiful wedding day was featured on Style Me Pretty this past week and we could not be more thrilled to finally share their dream day with you all!
These two were the sweetest couple and we instantly felt like friends after our first meeting. They were so caring and thoughtful throughout the whole planning process, always putting the experience of their guests at the forefront. They wanted to ensure their guests were surprised with many different elements throughout the day! From a champagne truck, live ceremony musicians, light up cowboy hats, a vintage car, there were unique elements throughout the day that really helped tell Cass and Dayna’s love story and their love for their family and friends.
