Our #AdoreRealBride Kaelo and new husband Michael were married in Greece on October 22nd, 2023. Kaleo shared all the details of the big day, including how her two in one wedding dress vision came to life! During her appointment, Kaleo fell in love with two of our dresses and channeled her creativity to design the custom dress of her dreams. Keep scrolling to see the results of her beautifully unique destination wedding! 


What was your styling inspiration or wedding day vibe you were going for? What inspired you to choose this?

I had a very unique image in mind for my wedding gown! Carly helped me over many hours and I was very critical about all the previous dresses so we ended up having to combine two dresses! I went boho and elegant. I wanted my dress to be super unique to me and super detailed.



What do you admire most about your new spouse?

I admire the ambition my husband has and how he will go all out for the small things. 



Tell us about a special memory from your wedding day, something that will always stand out in your mind ❤️

Something that I’ll never forget about our wedding was spending the time before the ceremony with all our family. My groom and I spent the whole day together and laughed with our family and officiant. It was so chill and fun. 



Is there anything else you want people to know about your love story?

The year of 2023 was crazy for us as a couple. I was living in England the first few months and Michael met me in Paris to propose!! We came home to Illinois and bought a house. Then, we went to Greece for our wedding!! We are hardworking average people and we are not rich, God supplied us all we wanted. If you are worried about anything for your wedding just pray!



What was your experience like with Adore Bridal?

LOVED IT SO MUCH! Carly was a perfect match for me and my extroverted personality. She spent so much time getting to know me and didn’t make it feel like I was rushing into a decision and even comforted me when I cried.


Congratulations Kaleo and Michael!
