This place is amazing! I was a little confused when I first walked in since all you see in regular consignment clothing, but then a lady took me to the back area where they have a full bridal area. You definitely have to do a little sorting and try several on since the sizing of every brand is way different.

The prices were a little higher than I expected, but it's also based on how long an item has been there. I found my wedding dress here on my very 1st visit. It's a diamond white, lace Essence of Australia beauty that retails for about $1800. I almost skipped it since it said size 8 & I'm usually a 4, but I tried it anyway & fell in love! They were asking $650, which was still out of my budget, but the sales lady double checked how long it had been there & said it was mine for $250! I could not believe it! I recommend this place to every future bride I encounter. Awesome value!

Dominique Labrecque Photography

Dom is a super nice & mellow guy. My fiance & I are really comfortable working with him & trust him to shoot our wedding. There's definitely nothing more important than trusting the person capturing your wedding day-and we trust Dom. We also love his casual, yet artistic style of photography. He was also really flexible about pricing. We are really happy with our package: 2 photographers, all day, editing, all images on DVD, and an e-shoot (he really encourages this to help couples feel more comfortable with their photographer on the wedding day). Overall, we are super happy & excited that Dom will be capturing our wedding day photos!!! Good luck ladies! UPDATE: We had our e-shoot with Dom last week & are completely blown away!!! We are soo incredibly happy with the photos he took & absolutely love the style! Plus, he got them back to us within days.. amazing since I was expecting at least a few weeks :) Check my bio for e-pics! **Post-Wedding!!! We absolutely loved our experience w/ Dom! He & his assistant shooter worked extremely well together and made us as feel as comfortable as possible on our big day. Dom's creativity paid off tremendously--super fun & incredible results! Dom & his assistant took about 4,500 pics on our wedding day, and after about a week I've been able to narrow our favorites down to about 700. 700!!! :) We love how our wedding day was captured & are very happy we went with Dom. Highly recommended!

Elizabeth Fox is our coodinator and was amazing at making our package fit our needs & budget. She's also super sweet & helpful with ideas. I absolutely love the ceremony garden area in the middle of the golf course-it is very secluded & private and will make for be beautiful photos near the gazebo, pond, trees, rock landscaping, and even the reception hall. I never thought we would be able to afford a full-service wedding, but Elizabeth made it happen and we couldn't be happier! Also, our ceremony will be outside with the reception being inside the reception hall. With a May wedding, we will def be stressed about it raining, but Shadowridge does have an indoor back-up plan if that happens. This is comforting beyond belief. Overall, I highly recommend looking into Shadowride County Club-it's beautiful, but reasonably priced.
