Real Weddings: Meet Kelly

Chris and Kelly had a super personal, ultra casual, and decidedly non-traditional wedding. And we LOVE it! Kelly is obsessed with all things miniature. Tiny pink pineapple bouquets and bitty gold animals were the perfect way to incorporate minis into her plan. This couple had their priorities clear from the get go; food, drinking and dancing! They fed their guests delicious fried chicken and cake from Wegman's, friends played great dance music, and they ended the night at their favorite bar, Puffy's in Tribeca. Mission accomplished! Congratulations you two.

Real Weddings: Meet Peggy

If a wedding can be a 'mic drop' this is it! Peggy and Miles' wedding was totally rad- all bright colors, friends, and fun! We would expect no less, as Peggy's personality shines through here bright as can be. We designed four separate, interchangeable pieces for her looks, allowing multiple changes throughout the evening and future wearability!

Real Weddings: Meet Jessa

Jessa and Andrew are New York transplants who love to explore the East Coast. After spending many long weekends making memories in the beautiful towns of Maine, Rhode Island, and Vermont, they decided to create a wedding weekend for their guests that felt like an East Coast vacation. They knew, most importantly, that they wanted fresh lobster for their reception… a couple after our own hearts! Offering a stunning outdoor location, amazing catering, and beautiful on-site Bed and Breakfast, Mount Hope Farm was the perfect venue for their fete. They had magical wedding day and entire weekend of love and joy, just the way they wanted their union celebrated.

Real Weddings: Meet Lauren

Rustic radiance. This Catskills wedding was simplicity done right. The first-look photoshoot in the woods was prelude to the sunshiny outdoor ceremony. Galvanized pails filled with baby's breath lined the aisle, and glistening water provided the perfect altar. The barn-turned-dance-hall was choice for the reception. The pastoral trimmings were all on point. Our Solstice Skirt and Fleur Bustier were a lovely match for this special day. And how about those antlers!

Inspiration: Celestine by The Weber Photographers

Modern romance on the water's edge. The shores of Lake Leelanau provided the perfect setting for this soft, copper and blush inspiration shoot. Wild and full florals were done just right in the simple backdrop, dripping chandelier, and lush bouquet. The unfussy hair and make-up keep our Celestine Gown feeling easy-breezy, whether its flowing free or gathered by our All Tied Up Belt
