Brittni and Jason in Minneapolis, MN

Brittni was so enamored with the Monique Lhuillier dress she chose for her wedding to Jason that it inspired the look of her celebration—and a future career. “My favorite part of the planning process was picking out the gown,” says the bride, who has a degree in fashion merchandising, “so now I'm working on opening a couture bridal shop in our community.” Here, Brittni, in her Monique Lhuillier gown and lace jacket, and Jason, in a Calvin Klein tux, embrace by the lake.
