Kait and Andrew Brooks were wed on April 28, 2018 at Saltwater Farm Vineyard in Stonington, CT. Kait wore a simple gown by Hayley Paige that had some details on the back and the side to make for a true HP gown. We loved their use of deep purples and greens to bring this early spring day to life. Check out more of their special day below.

Fourth of July Wedding Inspiration
The latest addition to The White Dress book series features an intimate look at some gorgeous destination weddings. These shots were some exclusive “deleted scenes,” from a great photoshoot with the book’s co-author, Carla Ten Eyck. We love the gorgeous reds and blues of these shots and the awesome knotty details in the table-scape. The incorporations of yellow and light blue make for a timeless take on this nautical theme.

Pretty Post | Yarden & Joe’s Palo Alto University Club Destination Wedding
We are absolutely swooning over all of the stunning image from Yarden & Joe’s Palo Alto University Club Destination Wedding. From the soft details of blush, ivory and blue to the stunning greenery found among the majestic native oaks and the meandering Matadero Creek, Yarden and Joe’s Wedding day was nothing short of the perfect day. We loved assisting Yarden in finding the perfect gown for her wedding day! The Made with Love Sasha gown in ivory was the perfect choice for her relaxed, elegant destination wedding.
“I searched through many Boston, MA bridal boutiques and did not find quite what I wanted for my June 2, 2018 wedding in Palo Alto, California. I then went to The White Dress by the Shore with my mom on a day where we had some extra time, and hesitantly tried on the Made with Love Bridal Sasha dress, not at all expecting to love it. Once I put it on, I knew it was the one. It was absolutely gorgeous. I had 4 fittings and my stylist Lauren was incredible. Also, the seamstress was incredible, I received so many compliments on the dress, and the fit, and I felt so great in it! It was so comfortable the whole night! Thank you!” – Yarden

White Carpet Appointment
When we first spoke with Melissa prior to her White Carpet Appointment, we could already tell by her bubbly personality and love of sparkle that she was going to be a true Hayley Paige bride. As luck would have it, her appointment happened to fall on the Sunday of our Hayley Paige Trunk Show, so she was greeted with all the fun flair that the Hayley Paige gowns bring with them. Melissa and her guests were treated to a beautiful cake by But a Dream Cakes, and sipped on mimosas made with One Hope brut throughout her appointment, all captured by the lovely Robin Dini for Steve Depino Photography. By the end of the day it was clear that Melissa had a favorite gown! With her family and friends all together, she said yes to her dream dress- one that she had been eyeing for years, and that worked perfectly her all-around glamorous vision for her wedding. As she chose her final touches to complete her wedding day look, Melissa worked with TWD stylist, Lauren to create a custom denim jacket for her day from The Little Denim Bride. Congratulations Melissa, we are so honored to have you as a TWD bride!

Hayley Paige Chandon takes The Society Room in Hartford
The White Dress by the shore bride Melissa looked like royalty in her Hayley Paige Chandon gown for her October wedding at The Society Room in Hartford.
Melissa selected Chandon in the Moet champagne color and it was the perfect compliment to her skin tone and the aesthetic of The Society Room.
Melissa wanted a veil to accent the unique color of her gown, so our in-house seamstress made her a custom veil in the same color tulle. Melissa’s Haute Bride earrings were the perfect shade of gold to accentuate the warmth of her gown.
You were a show-stopper Melissa! Thank you for allowing us to be part of your special day!

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!
