OZ Real Bride: Rebecca Hollis Elam

This week’s OZ Bride, Rebecca, found her Olia Zavozina dream gown at the Nordstrom Wedding Suite in Dallas, TX.  Rebecca looked stunning in her Olia Zavozina, “Allie” gown! 


How did you and Sam meet? 

Sam and I met (and almost dated) in high school but he ended up going to college at Notre Dame and I went to The University of Texas. So we decided the timing wasn’t right.  We fell out of touch and dated other people, but rekindled our friendship post graduation.  We remained really good friends for a couple of years before we decided it was time to see if there was a reason this crazy life brought us back together. As it turns out, that reason was a happy forever!



Tell us about finding your wedding dress: 

I can honestly say my dress shopping story included one of those obvious “this is the one!” moments.  I went to two bridal boutiques on Saturday, and I must have tried on 20 dresses!  After narrowing it down to a few that were pretty enough, I went home discouraged and hoping I wouldn’t have to settle for something that was just “OK”.  I had one more appointment on Sunday at the Nordstrom Wedding Suite in Dallas.  Olia’s dress was the first one I grabbed and I thought to myself “this won’t look good on my figure but I just have to try it on.” It turned out to be absolutely perfect.  Beautiful, elegant, and timeless.  I am so happy with my dress choice and I am so thankful to Olia Zavozina for helping to make our big day everything I hoped it would be.

How did you and Brandon meet?

Brandon and I grew up in a small town in Tennessee. We attended church together at the age of 3 and later attended the same high school, where we began dating. After graduating high school, we both attended Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN. The spring after my graduation, Brandon proposed to me at Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox. Coming from a baseball family, it was a dream come true!
