Tori and Bobby added holiday touches to their wintertime wedding. Very “marry,” indeed.

The lace train of Tori’s dress is absolutely show-stopping.

For their late-summer wedding, Brandon opted for elegant brown attire for himself and his groomsmen, while Michaella’s attendants wore soft pinks and browns.

The pretty, tiered dresses and scalloped hems give each of the bridesmaids a soft, ethereal look.

Erin’s bridesmaid dresses are a gorgeous sky blue and perfectly match their joyful flowers.

Each of the Bates weddings features swoon-worthy flowers.

It’s the wedding that started it all!

With a love as honest and endless as Gil and Kelly Jo’s, it seems fitting that both wore white.
