the classic new england bride

We were just updating our website with images of some of our latest arrivals and I felt so inspired by the Priscilla of Boston collection. It is absolutely the quintessential collection for the classic New England bride! Not only is the label over 40 years old, but the designs are timeless, classic and elegant! Here are a few of our favorites!

hot mamas!

Last Tuesday we were honored to be included in the first annual fashion show at the Clinton Country Club. Members modeled our mother of the occassion collection by Modern Trousseau.

No runway show is complete without a grand finale wedding gown! This gown was a custom creation by our seamstress Josie Jolon who is also the owner of our in-house foundations boutique, Beneath the gown. The gown is modeled by our very own Kelley Marks (a future bride herself).

the creative process

Last Sunday some of the areas best vendors came together to participate in a boutique bridal showcase, Weddings the Creative Process. The event was held at Saltwater Farm - an amazing winery and venue in Stonington, CT. Vendors spoke throughout the day in intimate workshops about the creative process in planning a wedding, and creating a sensory experience for your guests. While not sitting in on a workshop guests had the opportunity to walk around the lower level of the winery and meet all of the vendors including Abby Larson creator of Style Me Pretty, the special guest speaker. Brides had the opportunity to plan their entire wedding in one afternoon amongst the amazing collection of talent that came together. It was a true collaboration! The air was filled with such an incredible energy throughout the day despite the rain.

The event also helped to raise money, 100% of ticket sales, for a cause that is near and dear to our hearts, the Life is Good Kids Foundation. Everyone is already asking when the next one will be. Stay tuned!

Here are some amazing images from the day’s events. To read more event details visit the following blogs – Style Me Pretty and Carrie Roseman.

Flowers by Hana Floral Design, cupcakes by Sugarbelle, Lingerie by Beneath the Gown, gown and accessories by yours truly.

Beth’s workshop where she discussed how to take one gown and create different looks based on the venue and the personal style of the bride.
