Fleur Bustier

Inspiration: Rooftop reception in Chicago

Perched on a rooftop in Chicago, the Paeonia skirt and Fleur bustier were paired with fresh pops of blues, poppy, and peach for a private reception of simple elegance.    A sweeping train with sweeping views:  low key drama with high style!

Inspired: Fleur Bustier and Chambord Skirt by Jodi Miller

Sometimes the simplest styling packs such a punch! Take this shoot created by Kendal of Q|A Designs for example. Kendal chose to showcase a few of our separates and just look at how she rocked them (of course, Venita Aspen, with those oh-so-long lashes, natural hair and that mega watt smile helped make the job easier). We love that Kendal left the Fleur Bustier untucked from our Chambord Skirt creating a little crop top goodness. And how 'bout the drama of the Cloud Nine Capelet in those last few shots. All white washed, sun lit goodness.

Real Weddings: Meet Nicole

Sean, Nicole, and 'The Wonderful, Fantastic, Very Good, Not Very Bad At All Wedding Day.' These bibliophiles chose a little play on the notable 70s children's book title (Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day) to grace their programs and set the tone for their celebration. When you start with a couple as rad as this, add their nearest and dearest, and dress them up in their wedding day finest, 'wonderful and fantastic' doesn't even begin to cover it. Sean and Nicole said their I dos at the Water Witch Club at Monmouth Hills, New Jersey. The charming, homey venue offers sweeping views of Sandy Hook, the Atlantic Ocean, and the city skyline from one of the highest points on the eastern seaboard. Nicole chose our Fleur Bustier, Kensington Skirt, and Juliet Sash. 'Not very bad' indeed!

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!

Real Weddings: Meet Mary Elizabeth

Mary Elizabeth and Caleb's day began like most other days in Florida, with a little bit of rain. But, you know what they say, rain on your wedding day is good luck! And these two were undaunted. The day cleared and the couple said their I-dos at the First Baptist Church of Pensacola surrounded by colorful stained glass windows.

They celebrated with friends and family at the Museum of Commerce in downtown Pensacola. A gorgeous brick turn-of-the-century warehouse, which holds a reconstructed 1890s era streetscape. Mary Elizabeth chose our Fleur Bustier and Kensington Skirt. The perfect set for her sweet vintage inspired celebration.
