On June 22nd, Natalie and Colby made their way down the aisle at the Ocean House in Watch Hill, RI. This beautiful venue offered a green landscape for their ceremony and a beautiful beach view for the reception. Alicia Ann Photography got some incredible shots of their first look and all the small accessories that made their day special. We especially loved the incorporation of rose gold in the table-scape and the endless florals throughout the decor! Natalie wore a Romona Keveza gown that was a perfect fit for her and her venue.
Emily & Gregs Classic Navy, White & Burgundy Wedding
We love a Classic Navy, White & Burgundy Wedding, especially when paired with the perfect Augusta Jones lace gown! Emily and Greg were wed on May 19, 2018– a day of torrential downpours and cloudy skies. However, that didn’t stop all the smiles and love on their day. They got some great outdoor shots between rain showers and even a few with an adorable umbrella. The two carried their bridal party color scheme of navy, burgundy, and white into some lighter tones for their reception. They included light pink, white, pale green and even a little rose gold. We loved their lantern and fairy lights, too! We were so honored to be apart of their day; congratulations Emily and Greg!

A Custom Wedding Dress at The White Dress by the Shore!
At The White Dress by the shore we love helping bride’s find the perfect wedding dress. There are times when a bride has a vision of a gown that she just cannot find. Or, perhaps she loves the top of one gown and the bottom of the other. In those cases, we are able to create a custom wedding dress for The White Dress by the shore brides!
We met Patty last year shortly after her engagement. Patty’s wedding was taking place in her home country of Brazil. She had a vision of an elegant, glamorous gown that would make a statement for her special day. It was important to her that the gown have straps, a full skirt and she favored beaded lace. She had a photo as inspiration that she brought to her appointment. We tried on several gowns in the boutique, but she could not find the perfect gown that had ALL of the elements that she was dreaming of. So, we worked with designer Augusta Jones to make Patty’s gown vision come to life!
The first step in the process was to identify the overall shape of the gown and the lace that she loved. We then sketched out the gown, took a series of measurements and sent them off to Augusta Jones. The designer then constructed Patty’s gown out of muslin, which is a cotton fabric. When the muslin arrived, Patty came in for a fitting so that we could fit it to her and make adjustments to create the perfect the silhouette.
Our head seamstress Penny, adjusted the muslin according to Patty’s specifications. In her case, we changed the shape of the armhole slightly. lengthened the straps and lowered the back neckline.
Several months later, Patty’s gown arrived. It was in the fabric that she selected and had all of the design specifications that we had made. It was PERFECT! In her final fitting we adjusted the hem and created a bustle to the shoes that she was planning on wearing…and off to Brazil she went!
The final product was PERFECTION! Congrats Patty! We were so honored to work with you on such a special gown!

A Classic Southern Florida Wedding
When we heard our White Dress By The Shore Bride, Whitney’s vision for her Classic Southern Florida Wedding we knew immediately that it would be a dream to style. Her personal style is naturally classic with a touch of trendy, and she definitely stayed true to that for her wedding day look. The clean silhouette of her blush one shoulder Legends Romona Keveza gown was a perfect contrast to the soft tropical accents of her wedding. We love that she paired a gold belt, and stone headpiece with her dress to bring out the warm hues of her blush gown and florals. Shannon Moffit photography captured the unique details of the day beautifully, including their personal touches like Whitney’s custom bridal jacket and clutch, as well as their sweet pup pictured on the signature drink menu! Scroll through to see all of the pretty and to be inspired by Whitney’s fresh take on a classic look!
