Jessica + Matthew: Whimsical Eastern Shore Wedding by Hudson Nichols Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

As the weather warms up, we can’t help but daydream about the most idyllic places on the planet to spend the summer months.  You know, coastal spots with harsh winters that become completely alive with gorgeous foliage, visitors, and cool water lapping up on the- for a brief few months- warm sandy shores.  Jessica and Matthew’s May wedding transports us to such a spot- Trappe, Maryland, where they married on a sunny day at their family farm.  We’re completely taken by the entire event, from their easy-breezy style to the pops of whimsical, vibrant color. And it doesn’t seem that it could have been captured more perfectly than it was in these sunlit photos by Hudson Nichols Photography.

Jessica glowed in an organza Badgley Mischka gown, and had her long curls sideswept in a pretty low-do.  Much like the rest of the event, she emanated an effortless beauty.  The florals, with pops of color inspired by a desert sunset, were sourced from a local farm.  The bride lended her creative touch to many of the day’s details, designing the romantic country wedding of their dreams in a place they both hold dear in their hearts.

Trend Snippet: Sheer Statement
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

After each runway season, our Fashion Friday posts turn towards trends. This past October, there was a serious sheer statement on the New York bridal runway.  Let’s be honest, this high fashion look isn’t for every bride, but it sure is stunning, sexy and utterly glamorous. The dynamic contrast of the beadwork, embroidery and crystal embellishments against translucent fabrics make these gowns altogether noteworthy…pure art in my book.

no. 1 Gown by Eve of Milady

no. 2, 3 & 4 Dresses by Reem Acra

no. 5 & 6 Dresses by Hayley Paige

no. 7 Gown by Badgley Mischka

Beauties, aren’t they?

 I have something so so special for you on Monday, a creative project that I’m over the moon about.  It’s a photoshoot that is romantic down to the core, a heartfelt expression of all that is sacred and beautiful about weddings and I can’t wait to share. Until then, I hope your weekend is sheer perfection..xo

Day Three: NYC Bridal Market Top Ten {Part Two}
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

{Continue from Part One}

no. 6 Austin Scarlett’s Bridal Debut

There were two moments of the entire weekend that really blew me away.  The first was the Monique finale. The second was at Austin Scarlett’s runway presentation.  The collection?  Truly beautiful, I was enchanted by his use of rich silks, printed fabrics, and pastel hues as shown below.  The moment that really gave me chills, though, was when he walked the runway at the very end.  He’s just sweet and lovely as can be.  It was momentous really… an up and coming designer making a splash.  It was not only a highlight of day three, but of the entire weekend.  

no. 7 Marveling Over Maggie

Always a bride’s favorite,  Maggie Sottero revealed several crowd-pleasers this season including a platinum ruffle gown and other glam silhouettes with out-of-this-world adornments. 

no. 8 Innovative Embellishments

Nobody is an innovator of embellishments like Badgley Mischka.  It’s always a true joy to pop in and see what these two design genius’ reveal!  I’m especially crushing on this raw-edged organza rosette bodice and the sheer, crystal-embellished gloves. 

no. 9 Birnbaum & Bullock’s  Sequence Pantsuit

I’m always in the mood for something on-the-fringe, so I was wide-eyed and pleasantly surprised when a model in this hot little pantsuit number strutted down the runway over at Birnbaum & Bullock.  Trés chic! 

no. 10  Wild & Yumi

Speaking of on-the-fringe, we wouldn’t expect anything less than a walk on the wild side over at Yumi Katsura. The presentation was unforgettable, featuring this bold red spaghetti strap gown in sustainable lace and ultra-retro, larger-than-life side bow.

After we’ve had the pleasure of seeing nearly every dress in a bridal designer’s new collection… there is always the anticipated finale dress.  Sometimes it’s highly climactic…. a statement dress…something a little different, more avant garde, a piece the designer takes particular pride in,  other times, there is a more subtle close to the show.  Here are eighteen finale dresses in every variety from this October’s New York bridal fashion week. We’ll let these dresses speak for themselves and you can be the judge.
