If there’s one season that announces its arrival with color, it’s fall. As the days get shorter and colder, we take comfort in the richer, warmer hues observed in the natural world – just think of golden sunlight filtering through a canopy of foliage in mid-October!

Caroline and Ben first met in 2015 when they both were working for a tech start-up in New York City. “Ben was my on-board buddy. He welcomed me to the company environment and my role within it,” Caroline remembers. They became fast friends, often going to lunch and happy hour together. “We were both in relationships at the time. Everything was work related, but there was always an underlying feeling that this could be more. Those romantic feelings were finally addressed that following summer.” Not yet on the same page of what they wanted in terms of a relationship, they dated on and off for the following six months. In an age where dating apps play instant matchmaker, their long, more traditional courtship comes across as refreshing. “Looking back, this period helped build the relationship that Ben and I have now,” Caroline says. “We had been colleagues, friends, then ‘more than friends.’ By the time we were ready to commit, we knew each other inside and out.”

Limitless budgets and access to the top stylists, designers, and jewelers aside, many of these famous women experienced a journey to saying ‘I Do’ that felt somewhat relatable.

What all these brides have in common though is how each made sure that their walk down the aisle was done in style. We were left dreaming of gorgeous wedding day attire without limitations. From jaw-dropping gowns to sparkling jewelry to beautiful bouquets, we are breaking down the looks of our favorite celebrity brides from summer 2022.
