Sneak Peek at Gorgeousness :) :)

If this doesn't warm you up on a chilly December night, we're not really sure what will!!!

We fell in love with Brooke the minute she called the store to ask about a few dresses she had her eye on.....sweet, sweet, sweet!! Totally confident in her own style and the most gracious disposition you could ask for....Brooke chose an AMAZING gown and is going to be a stunning bride!!!

We also loved the strong bond that is so evident between Brooke and her mom.....they had a really beautiful energy together in the store and it was really a beautiful moment to witness......

So it came as no surprise when we got a peek at Brooke's engagement session that such love and joy would also be evident in this, her relationship with her handsome fiance :) :) Documented by the very artistic and lovely Meggie Velasco, Brooke shared a peek into their session and we're so glad she did :) :) Can you imagine...if the engagement photos are this gorgeous....we are really in for some Wedding Day treats :) :)

Here's to a very sweet engagement, Brooke and Logan!!

These pictures have brought us a lot of smiles the last few days and we are so excited to share them with you!!!!

Sweet Brittany seemed destined for this amazing Melissa Sweet gown (you Melissa Sweet fans might recognize her as Dora :) :)) Everything about the gown was gorgeous and just perfect for Brittany's outdoor affair!

Brittany also brought her bridesmaids in and did these amazing Lazaro gowns...she chose the Gold Leaf color, which was simply stunning for her October it all! You can't tell here but these dresses have pockets and are absolutely adorable!

Brittany...thank you so, so, so much for working with us! Loved the dress for you and have so enjoyed the photos.....we will miss you and your smiling face ....wishing you and Danny a very happy 1st Married Christmas ...stop in sometime to see us!!! :)

Election Year...continues.....

Bet you thought your voting obligation (privilege? honor?) was over for the next 4 years : ) : )

Our friends at AshleysBrideGuide (ABG) are proud to present "Best of Nashville Wedding Vendors Awards '08" ... and they need your help! ABG is a local resource for brides like you and they want first hand references! (These are the fun surveys, don't you think?)

We love the terms they are setting from the get- go:
"Please do not nominate a business for each category. Instead, only vote for the outstanding vendor(s) that made your day spectacular and were extraordinary in terms of service, product, creativity or value."

So practical and honest! Sure enough, there is a category for each "Attire - Bridal Gowns" and "Attire - Bridesmaids".... :) :) :)

Click here to vote!

Rest assured, we are not starting an all out Vote For Us Campaign and we certainly won't harass you or fill your email with propoganda...but if you feel like we're doing a great job, we'd love it if you would let the gals at ABG know.....

Happy Friday! Have a great and warm weekend!!!!

Whitney + Brandon | Seaside, FL

So glad to be back today with a post about a real bride of ours.....

You all would never believe how sweet Whitney is, so we hesitate to even try to explain....She and her mother came to shop with us in June on what had to have been the hottest day of the year....They'd been shopping all day and were exhausted...but simply couldn't be any sweeter. Truly, truly, they were a joy....

Whitney selected this amazing Vineyard dress for her Seaside wedding...everyone kept talking about how perfect it would be for the location....and they were right!!! Looks so good!!!!!

Love, love, love these images by Tec Petaja ...this guy seems to always get it just right.....

Hope you enjoy the photos (and the dress!!), too.....

Stay tuned...we're back this dresses, real brides, and remember the teaser from a few weeks back about something super exciting at The Bride Room???? We're getting ready for the Big Reveal in the next week!!!!

Happy December! :) :)

First stop at were doing a little perusing of our local resources and saw that some images of our gowns were highlighted...namely this great Vineyard Collection shot leading into some suggestions for great necklines on gowns.....

Also at Nashville Weddings online is a feature on our sweet bride Samantha might remember her post from a few months back when we introduced you to her and her sweet fiance.....

Moving right along to InStyle Weddings....a little post about Celebrity Rings caught our attention.... and lo and behold...picture 7 of 7 was designer Melissa Akey of Thread Social -- and what is on her sash?? None other than a fabulous Paris brooch...this piece is called Chalk's just gorgeous!!! Love it?? Stop in and see what other brooches we have.....promise, promise, they are all amazing!!! (oh yeah, and the ring isn't so bad, either :) :) )

A Few of Our Favorite Things....

So last night we had a very minor occurrence of SNOWFALL in Nashville - it's true!!

We love the fact that it is November and we already saw a few that it is the most perfect way to usher in the kickoff to the holidays....Thanksgiving.....It was just a quiet reminder of all the things we love about this time of year.... :) :) :)

Sweaters, coats, scarves, boots!!!! Of course we had to mention the fashion element of the to bundle up and brave the elements in a chic capelet sweater and tall pair of boots.....Currently loving this ruffle-detail sweater (and layers!!!) from the ever spot-on GAP....

And it wouldn't be holiday season in Nashville if there wasn't an abundance of radio and TV commercials for the annual Radio City Music extravaganza featuring the Rockettes themselves....something about the Rockettes and Christmastime just go hand-in-hand .... :)

Lastly....we would be amiss if we didn't mention one of our favorite things about winter......snowy, frosty, winter-themed weddings!!!!! OOOH We found this image while we were poking around for inspiration and it stopped us dead in our snowy tracks..... :) :) LOVE IT. Will be swooning forever and ever :) :)

Have a warm and toasty weekend!!!!

Real Bride Betsy

We are so happy today to introduce you to the lovely Betsy.

When we think of our experience with Betsy, we just think of how gracious and sweet and completely down-to-earth she is. Betsy was such a joy because we know she had a greater perspective of this next chapter....had some insight into the marriage and not just the wedding....How we treasure those brides! And these photos capture a timelessness and classic beauty that will truly never be out of style....

Betsy - thank you so much for your kindness and goodness along the way! We really loved being a part of the process!!

Not so ghoulish!

Saw this on the very fun and thought it too romantic not to share. Seriously...that's a lot of time and patience and pumpkin carving!!! Very sweet!

Happy Halloween from The Bride Room! Be safe and have lots of fun!!!!

We are stalkers.

There, we admitted it.
We adore our brides so much, that we stalk them as soon as we have any chance to see photos!!!!

So when Jennifer emailed us her photographer's blog posting with her wedding pictures, we went into full-on criminal-level cyber-stalking. In fact, we would have posted this blog the very second she emailed us but we've been too busy swooning over her photos. Over and over and over again. (Best. Job. Ever, we tell you!)

Check out this blog for more delicious eye candy. Kudos to the way he so appropriately captured the essence of they...the joy, the happiness....oh the yellow flowers!!!!

Jennifer rocked out this amazing Amsale gown with such sweetness and confidence - she GLOWED when she tried the dress on in the store and it so beautifully translated on her day....We love, love, LOVE how Jennifer
looks like herself - the most beautiful version of herself ever....And the spunky veil she chose was, well...just perfect.

Here's to you, Jennifer- (hope we haven't completely weirded you out :) :) ) .... you really were a joy to work with....thanks for including us and all the kindness along the way. Stop by any time!!! We will miss you!!!! Congratulations!!!!

Tuesday, October 28, 2008

Drizzle drizzle.....

So this is Nashville today...ah, a rainy fall day in Music City......we're craving soup and pumpkin bread and hot cocoa :) :) can you relate??!?!?!

And it makes us think about you all....and all these outdoor weddings you're planning! Though we can totally see how romantic and special a rainy wedding day can be, we understand why maybe you wouldn't want one :) :)

Check out this article and enjoy these photos....wouldn't it be cute to have lots of sweet pictures with umbrellas ????
