As Seen In Bliss Celebrations: Masculine Sophistication

As a stylist, I collaborate on many beautiful projects.  Some times though, the project takes on an even bigger meaning, and that is exactly what happened with this shoot!

I was contacted by Amy Blau, founder and publisher of Bliss Celebrations Magazine, to conceptualize a shoot for their 2016 issue.  For some time I had been dreaming about creating a shoot that featured chinoiserie and boxwood.  Amy and I brainstormed locations and settled on Glen Manor in Newport.  When we brought the concept to Candice Coppola of Jubilee Events, who would be designing the concept and décor, she had the brilliant idea to feature two grooms.  She was inspired by turning the feminine aspect of chinoiserie on it’s head by bringing in some masculine elements such as leather and wood.

We had such a blast while working on this shoot.  We not only had a dream team of collaborators (see the list below), but we so enjoyed seeing the love of our real couple, David and Anthony.  After the recent events in Orlando, and around the world, we are more honored than ever to feature this photo shoot.  We believe in ONE LOVE! Love that transcends race, gender, or sexual orientation.  We believe that LOVE IS LOVE!  We hope you will celebrate this love by enjoying the images from our shoot!

Feature Friday: The White Dress by the shore celebrates their 12 year anniversary!

I am so thrilled to celebrate The White Dress by the shore’s 12 year anniversary!  The industry has changed quite a bit in the past 12 years, but one thing that stays consistent is the classic aesthetic of our brides and our passion for helping them look beautiful on their wedding day!

I am so grateful to work side by side with the beautiful women featured in this post every day.  They are the heart and soul of The White Dress by the shore!  They are talented, smart, bright women who have a passion for the bridal industry and for making our clients happy. I am thrilled to introduce our newest member, my 15 year old daughter Lindsay.  She was 3 years old when The White Dress opened it’s doors.  She was in her princess phase and loved being in the store and dreamed of working in it some day.  It is hard to believe that the day has arrived!  You will see her in the store on Saturdays assisting the stylists and greeting clients.  I am so proud to watch her blossom into a beautiful young woman!

A big thank you to Amy Trahant of Take Aim Photography for the following (amazing) images!

Donna Morgan Serenity Collection & Magazine!

Owner and stylist, Beth Chapman had the opportunity to style the new magazine featuring Donna Morgan’s Serenity collection. Below is what she had to say about the experience:

Styling the photo shoot for the Serenity collection was a such a dream!  The dresses were absolutely stunning and so unique, so it made my job easy. We shot in and around Kennebunkport, Maine and at the most precious resort called Hidden Pond. The diverse locations were the perfect backdrop to reflect the variety of this collection.  There are options for all types of weddings – from classic and preppy to ethereal to elegant and sophisticated..and everything in between. Our goal with this shoot was to show how the colors and silhouettes could be mixed and matched within the same party for beautiful variety and dimension. We had a dream team of vendors collaborating on this shoot. See below the images for the credit reel. 

The Serenity collection is now available at the boutique — schedule your appointment by calling us at 860.669.4596 or request an appointment!

{The full magazine can be viewed here!}
