Heidi and Casey dated for 9 years before getting married. Needless to say, after all of that time together their family and friends were already close as can be. And all of those loved ones rallied to hand craft this homespun soiree. The couple chose Heidi's parents' home in Hancock, NH as their spot. The estate, named "The Highlands", was built in 1790 and used to belong to the bride's grandmother, who cultivated a menagerie of odd pets on the grounds (including a peacock). Special touches included a hand painted bar and table signs (all named for the couple's pets). Heidi's sister made an amazing, vintage inspired photobooth. If you think you spy a LOT of littles you aren't wrong. All 9 of the bride and groom's nieces and nephews (all under the age of 6) were part of the ceremony! Heidi wore our Orchis Tee and a custom skirt based off of the Nolita dress. The perfect combination for this intimate union.
It's IVY!!! And oh, how we love Ivy. Not only is she one of our retailers (anyone lucky enough to have found their gown at Lovely Bride in Philadelphia already knows her), but she has become a friend over the years. So, you can imagine the excitement in getting to create a custom gown for her! One thing you may not know about Ivy is that she is a dancer. A seriously talented, trained, competitive dancer (like a gold medal winning U.S. champ...just sayin'). It follows that Ivy is comfortable in sparkly gowns so this one had to be EXTRA special and allow her to dance the night away. It was a total dream to spend time with this girlboss while we created her one of a kind gown and this beauty turned out just right. The first look got Matt all teary, and my oh my how she glowed under that grand chuppah. The night ended with this couple totally killing it on the dance floor. Mission accomplished. Mazel tov you two.
Dream dress, dazzling location, true love. Della and Anwar were married at the gorgeous Decameron Resort in Panama. Talk about a magnificent destination! This resort is right on the beach, just off the Gulf of Panama. Della chose a completely custom gown in gold tones with tons of shimmer. She looked like a royal mermaid in head-to-toe sequins. We love that she finished her look off with the touching addition of her grandmother's veil.
