Lydia and Chad tied the knot at the Full Moon Resort at the Catskill Mountains in Upstate New York. Both love the mountains and being outdoors and were looking for a barn wedding as well as a venue that could offer overnight accommodations for the wedding party. Full Moon was the perfect spot for their rustic barn wedding and had enough rooms for all the wedding guests to stay on-site the night of the wedding. Her bridesmaids looked gorgeous in our Ellen, Leanna, Cherish, Hillary and Lanette in Dusty Rose. The groomsmen were also in matching Dusty Rose ties!

Q: What was your wedding theme?
“We didn’t have a theme. We just wanted our wedding to be simple. We wanted the natural elements of our wedding details and the beauty of our venue to stand out. We chose white and soft pink for our flowers and wanted lots of greenery. We chose Dusty Rose for the bridesmaids’ dress color to ‘go with’ the flowers. We wanted to feature other natural materials–we used recycled kraft paper for all the stationary, all the linens were white, and we used natural looking wood in many places. It was simple and natural, and the Dusty Rose perfectly complemented the natural details.”
Q: What was the best part of the day?
“My favorite part of the day was when Chad and I had our first look and then took our portrait photos together. We finally got to enjoy our day together after all the planning! It was so nice to take a deep breath and be in each other’s company. It felt like coming home. Chad says his best part of the day was when we exchanged our vows and rings. It was an amazing feeling to commit to each other in front of all our friends and loved ones.”
Q: Why did you pick Azazie for your bridesmaids?
“My bridesmaids were all over the country: PA, Idaho, Washington State and NYC. Azazie came up in my internet search for ‘Dusty Rose’ and I loved the dresses. I loved that my bridesmaids could try on their dresses before purchasing with the trial program. I also loved that they could have them custom sized. I wanted each bridesmaid to have a dress suited to her own style, so it was awesome that there were so many dresses to chose from. The incredible prices too! We couldn’t believe the quality we were getting for our money!”
Q: Any tips for those getting married soon?
“Less is more! Everything goes so quickly on the big day. The fewer things you have going day-of (or even week-of), the better. You will be running around like a nut on the day, so the fewer events/locations/plans, the more time you will have to enjoy your day with your friends and family.”
Q: How’d you find Azazie?
I found Azazie internet searching “Dusty Rose Bridesmaids Dresses.” I also saw a Buzzfeed article!
Q: Did you enjoy the wedding planning process?
“I enjoyed wedding planning very, very much. My husband (then fiancé) and I had so much fun working together. We made joint decisions about all aspects and details. It was really fun. I also like the DIY projects we did. The little wedding details.”
