Obsession du Jour!

Hey girls -- have some super fun brides passing along photos - you know we can't get enough!!! :) :)
Today some gorgeous images came through (can't share yet..they're bridal portraits for an August wedding...sorry!!!!)....which led us to the fantastic photographer's blog....which brings us to the amazing detail that was totally worth sharing!!!

How precious! Dear sweet bride, we don't know you and you don't know us, but this homage to your parents/grandparents/whoever they are touched us! What a beautiful detail and special way to keep your nearest and dearest close to you on your special day. Well done!! :) :)

Some of you have asked us, "what's your favorite dress?" - and truly, it to day, week to week...the fun for us is that we get all the dresses, and you have to pick just one (okay, maybe two...but probably not more than that!!!) :) :)

But we have to say there are certain dresses that sorta never fall off The List of favorites....Melissa Sweet created this confection of a dress named Billie, and we have been swooning over her since day one.....Stumbled across this amazing wedding on (of course) Style Me Pretty this morning and had to share...Oh Billie, you are so, so pretty....

Go ahead and call us for your appointment for the combined Melissa Sweet/Priscilla of Boston/Vineyard Collection/PLATINUM Trunk Show Sept 18 + 19. Billie is just the beginning......

Happy Friday!

Ann Claire + Will | June 13, 2009

Two words: Trunk Show.
Ann Claire might be the best possible living proof that Trunk Shows are so totally worth your time....The amazingly fabulous and out-of-control gorgeous Amsale gown she wore is not a piece we have in store, but had come in for a Trunk Show. Ann Claire tried her on with very little expectation and ....voila! A dream come true.....She was such a vision....Truly one of those most unforgettable dresses :) :)

Ann Claire came back for the fall PARIS Trunk Show. You might recognize from previous posts that PARIS Trunk Shows are nothing short of fabulous. Designer Debra Moreland customizes a complete wedding day look - from hair to earrings, bracelets, necklaces....the whole deal!!! Debra worked with Ann Claire and clearly the results were breathtaking ....

We so enjoyed our time with Ann Claire -- she was the greatest at communicating with us ....her bridesmaids were wonderful to work with .....she was so excited and genuinely kind. She and her mother were enthusiastic and absolutely the sweetest ever. We will miss you, sweet Ann Claire!!! Please keep in touch!!

Gown: Amsale
Accessories: PARIS
Bridesmaids: Watters

It's All in the Details....

Hi girls! Happy Thursday!!! This summer has been, as expected, busy busy with brides and weddings and details, details, details!! :) Excuse or random blogging, as it's been less than consistent lately :)

We've had some experiences lately that have kind of left us in awe....we have really been amidst some of the sweetest, most generous and kind girls lately. It feels like we truly learn something from each and every bride we work with....that is part of the fun, truly - hearing about experiences and wisdom they learn along the way; what works, what doesn't work so well, how their own personal style is going to be infused into the Big Day.....And of course the joy is that at the end of the day, you're married and beginning on a new season marked by celebration and the closeness of families and friends.... So, so fun....

So get ready, because the real wedding photos are rolling in and they. are. gorgeous. Taking it to a whole new level, ladies -- we love it!!! :)

In the meantime, enjoy these snapshots of the details of some real brides....courtesy, of course, of Style Me Pretty....

Page + Lee | May 16, 2009

How do you even begin to share the love we have for a one Ms. Page?
Page was - and is - one of the most enthusiastic brides ever!! Not over the top, no -- just genuinely excited for a celebration of love and commitment to a man she's spent years and years with....

You get to know Page and you realize she is funny, laidback, hard-working, thoughtful, and totally loyal - and that was so evident by the people who surrounded her during the too-small window we got to spend with her. She has the dearest and sweetest friends, dad, and brothers ...we even got to meet Lee, her then-fiance, and gosh darn it, just more proof that she surrounds herself with the warmest and kindest people. These two won't just make it - they'll have fun along the way and have the best support system around....Kisses and hugs, Morrises ...keep comin' around 'cause we love you *that* much!!! :) :)

To top it off, they had friend Tec on hand as the photographer - we know, we've been Tec's biggest cheerleaders lately, but hey - he's good, and keeps putting out fabulous work of our fabulous brides so we just can't help ourselves :) :)

And of course we need to do a plug - Page TOTALLY ROCKED a Priscilla of Boston gown that both complemented her and allowed her to look like herself (the most beautiful version of herself!)....Priscilla did a custom fit via muslin fittings and Page's dress didn't need a single alteration - not even a hem! - when it came in. Amazing....such a testimony to a well-made dress!!!

Happy Wednesday!

Something New and Blue....

These pretty little babes could easily pass for your "something new"...your "something blue"...and your "they-are-so-fabulous-and-this-is-my-one-good-reason-to-buy-platform-glitter-peeptoe-Louboutins".... 

Perhaps you need to justify that li'l price tag by promising that someday they will be someone else's "something borrowed"....(which will probably never happen, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do....)

Happy July!
