White Carpet Appointment By Athena Bludé

Last month we had a wonderful White Carpet appointment  with Allison, captured by photographer Athena Bludé.  She was shopping for a gown for her October beach club wedding, and we customized a gown for her to create the perfect one! 

Allison and her guests were treated to champagne and delicious gourmet nibbles from Coastal Gourmet as they enjoyed the parade of gorgeous gowns that Allison considered.

The bouquet provided by Hana Floral  Design coordinated perfectly with the classic inspiration and colors that Allison was envisioning for her day.

To book your own White Carpet appointment ring us at 860.669.4596 and ask for Kelly, our White Carpet Coordinator. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Pretty Post: Alia & Scott’s Vineyard Nuptials

This month we are thrilled to bring you a pretty post that is sure fulfill all your vineyard wedding wishes. Alia and Scott’s outdoor nuptials took place at the beautiful  Jonathan Edwards Winery in Stonington, Connecticut last September.

The brides’ gown was a custom design by Augusta Jones from The White Dress by the shore and when paired with beauty by Jennie Fresa and hair by Terri Coon for Timothy Pamment Salon– well, lets’ just say we were speechless. Her pearl and crystal jewels hail from Bella Perlina in Madison and her maids were outfitted in the sweetest Coren Moore frocks. The looks wouldn’t be complete without the floral arrangements from Madison Flower Shop. And lets not forget Scott, he and his groomsmen were dressed in ecru suits from Collin’s Tux Shop.

All of these gorgeous moments could not have been captured more beautifully than Jessi Ringer of 5 Rings Photography.


And if you are a true romantic be sure to watch this ‘same day edit’ video by Jeff Brouillet.

Coren Moore Mix and Match Bridesmaid Shoot with Carla Ten Eyck

We are in LOVE with this bridesmaid shoot that was recently featured in the 2012 issue of Bliss Celebrations Guide.   We had such fun styling this colorful and whimsical shoot in Elizabeth Park in Hartford.

We are enamored with the trend of  mix and matching bridesmaid dresses for your big day.  We used precious styles from Coren Moore  to show how its done, and the beauty was captured by *Carla Ten Eyck.

In the first story below, we used not only different silhouettes, but different vibrant colors to create a playful story.  Fun accessories in the colors of the palatte tie the looks together!

In the second story, we were inspired by the delicious color palette used in the table scape designed by *Jubilee Events and the paper story created by *Coral Pheasant.  In this vignette we created a collection of all different dresses in the same color family ranging from pink to coral with a fun pop of yellow mixed in!

Do tell, would you consider mix and matching silhouettes and colors for your bridal party?
