Today marks 6 days since our friend, Eric Langlois went missing at Lover Leap State Park in New Milford, CT. Our hearts continue to be heavy and we continue to pray that he is brought back to his family, his wife, Amber, their children Ryder and Avery, and their baby on the way.

We have searched for him, we have prayed for him and we have cried for him. The best way that we can now continue to honor him is through his incredible work. We have been so fortunate to work with Eric over the years, both with our brides and on editorial projects. Eric’s style is uniquely his. His use of light is unparalleled and it is a talent that he would share often with his colleagues through his workshops, many of which we were fortunate enough to style. Below are some of our favorite collaborations with Eric.
Please continue to pray for him, his family and his return home. #findericlanglois

It is our pleasure to introduce you to our new blog series called ‘Featured Wedding’, which holds a spot light on our favorite images and the color palate from a real wedding we just can’t get enough of. Scroll below to find out more about these gloriously sunny nuptials…
Recently featured on Style Me Pretty, the wedding of Marci and Paul is a sight to behold. We love their local vineyard setting (a ten minute jaunt from the store) and neutral palate with that bold pop of yellow.
We of course are a fan of their Coren Moore maids dresses purcahsed at the boutique with Marci’s signature hint of sunshine- she even wore a fabulously bright yellow Jenny Yoo frock to her rehearsal dinner. Marci’s gown is ‘Kendra’ by Modern Trousseau, the delicate placement of lace fits her every curve and we just love the look of that long romantic veil she’s paired it with.
We love this quote from Marci in regards to the feel of her wedding- she truly nailed it, “We wanted it to feel romantic yet laid back and comfortable. Much of what we decided on reflected this. From the outdoor rustic chic farm tables, to the dreamy floral arrangements of peonies, hydrangea & dahlia, to my Chantilly lace dress and fingertip lace edged veil.”
A bevy of local vendors are to thank for this fantastic fete and they are as follows:

This month, our Baubles Veils & Cocktails event on Thursday, June 14th from 6-8 PM, is focused on a very special accessory, the belt, or sash. We love this addition to a gown because it flatters nearly every figure by cinching the smallest part of you- your waist! It also adds a personal touch to any gown! Join us for an hour long appointment this Thursday to view our collection and to consult with one of our talented stylists to find the perfect piece for you. All belts and sashes are discounted by 10% during this exclusive event.
Ring us at 860.669.4596 to schedule your appointment!

Find your dream gown (long or short) during this special event.
