Pretty Post: Megan & Jeffery’s Classic Shoreline wedding

Any nautical wedding on the beach is right up our alley, but when it involves a beautiful lace wedding dress and is shot by the talented Robert Norman, it makes us love it even more.  It was such a pleasure to create this timeless look for Megan! Scroll down to see a wedding filled with nautical details, classic elements, and love!

Brittany & Alex’s Elegant Wadsworth Mansion Summer Wedding

Brittany and Alex’s elegant wedding at Wadsworth Mansion had everything that we love about weddings…. a beautiful bride, a classic wedding gown, beautiful florals and blush pink!  Every romantic detail was meticulously thought out and artfully captured by Ashley Therese!  Scroll down to see the pretty…and let the swooning begin!

We are simply blushing from the sweet review the Brittany provided us on Wedding Wire:

“My experience at The White Dress was nothing short of fabulous! TWD was the third bridal salon I visited, and I knew as soon as I walked in that I would find my dress there. My bridal consultant, Lauren, was professional, friendly, and sweet! She listened to what I was looking for in a gown and helped me find a simple, elegant Amy Kuschel gown that was basically made for me. When my dress came in, TWD happily accommodated my limited fitting schedule due to my status as a cross-country bride. During my fittings, Lauren assisted me in purchasing some beautiful Sara Gabriel accessories that seamlessly completed my look. If you’re looking for a full service bridal salon that has a top notch selection of gowns and accessories but still want the intimate feel of a small business – look no further than TWD!”

Thank you for your kind words and being so darn sweet!  

xoxo, TWD

Pretty Post: Kelsey & Paul’s Riverhouse Romance featuring Hayley Paige Dori

The first time I saw Kelsey, I was in awe of how beautiful she was. So much that I walked over to her and gushed to her about it. In the two seconds before words came out of my mouth, I thought to myself that she will probably think I’m crazy creepy – I had never met her before! Instead, Kelsey laughed heartily and was so incredibly modest with the compliment. In that moment, I realized that she really is a beautiful person in all form inside and out. After having a chance to get to know Paul a bit later, it made perfect sense why these two gravitated to each other. Both have the kindest hearts and sweetest smiles. And their little guy Charlie is a mirror of everything they are – warm, real, happy and in love -Hubert & Alka

We absolutely adore Kelsey and Paul’s wedding at the Riverhouse. She was absolutely stunning in her gown – Hayley Paige Dori.  Scroll below and you will see what we mean! A big thank you to Kelsey for partaking in our day of wedding dress service and bringing her darling baby, Charlie to every fitting!
