Pretty Post: Holly & Adams Handmade Dockside Wedding in Mystic, CT

Pretty Post’s are always special and even more so when it is one of our own bridal stylists’ wedding!  This post just takes it over the top for us, as this  lovely couple is expecting their first child in a few short months. We are finally sharing Holly & Adam’s sweet wedding that took place last summer!  Take a peek below for all of the pin-worthy inspiration from this creative couple.

adam holly kissing hearts

Holly and Adam are both artists and have known each other for over a decade. Their wedding paired sweet sentimentality with unique creative touches set upon the backdrop of picturesque Mystic, CT where the two grew up.

Having both worked at Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters as Display Coordinators and attended the same college of fine arts, their heartfelt and handmade wedding was a true portrait of their lives together, infused with whimsical touches and heirloom details. They used all local vendors and  paper as a common thread in kites, hearts, streamers and craft paper.

Having an intimate, casual gathering was really important to them, so they kept it small and had Holly’s grandfather, a Justice of the Peace perform the ceremony in his back yard on the bank of the Mystic River.

When it came time to party the pair invited all of their friends and family to a reception at The Boat House at Seaport Marine- thats right, a party right on the water. The fete was completed with a to-die-for brick oven pizza truck, starry Sperry tent, handmade decor and a down right funky band who call themselves ‘Folk, Yall’.

The bride donned a custom Modern Trousseau gown and completed the look with Aquinnah earrings, a bejeweled Modern Trousseau sash and vintage inspired shoes.

All in all, this wedding felt so much like Holly & Adam and we were so honored to be a part of their big day, just as we are to be a part of their next step in life as they welcome their baby boy into the world!

I knew right from the beginning that I wanted my overall look for the wedding to have an romantic, old-world feel. A cap veil was in my head from day one, so I knew whatever dress I chose, had ‘work’ with that look. I tried on a handful of different style dresses at a few locations before I found the Jenny Yoo that was just right. It was the perfect backdrop for the look I wanted to achieve–it was classic and simple, yet still made me feel effortlessly glamorous and comfortable all at the same time.  

I also had very specific thoughts for my veil, which I was having trouble finding both style-wise and in our price range! Penny was able to help me construct a completely custom cap veil—we played with the lace, length, and construction, until it was just right. Without Penny I never would’ve been able to get the veil that was ‘in my head,’ ‘on my head!’

That being said, I knew that when the veil came off during the reception, I would still need a little something extra to feel glamorous. After a long and unsuccessful search for a necklace that was substantial enough, I decided (a few days!) before the wedding, to use the beaded capelet from TWD. It was the perfect touch and I received so many compliments from our guests.   

All the girls at TWD (and I think each one assisted me at point or another) were a complete pleasure to work with! I’m the type to weigh out and try on every option, and they were always incredibly helpful and accommodating. I miss my trips down to the shop!

I am completely confident that I had the most knowledgeable and professional ladies help me prepare for my big day!”

We loved helping create your fabulous custom look, Stacey! Congratulations to the lovely couple!

We love these images  by Erica of Adeline & Grace Photography! They truly capture the taste and feel of this sweet couples big day!

Here is a brief recount from Sarah in regards to her wedding gown search:

“I had been dress shopping for a few weeks and had yet to find “My Dress.”  I tried on a lot of beautiful dresses, but none felt like the one I would wear on my wedding day.  The White Dress By The Shore was my next stop!  My mom, sister and I pulled into the driveway of an adorable classic New England home.  We were greeted by Jill who I connected with right away!  Jill’s knowledge, exquisite taste, and honesty helped me say “Yes to the dress.”   The dress was perfect.  The layers and blending of different fabrics into the body of the gown embodied my passion for working with textiles in the interior design industry! The dress wouldn’t be complete without a full head to toe style by the White Dress, so Jill helped me pick out jewelry, shoes, and a drop dead gorgeous belt to add a little lace to the number!

Jill also assisted with the selection of the Ivy & Aster bridesmaids gowns and my Mom’s dress.  The bright coral dresses that my girls wore were unreal.  They were ethereal yet the color made them pop off my white dress!

Also I cannot forget to thank my talented seamstress Penny at The White Dress. She did a beautiful job tailoring the dress to my body, especially with all those layers!

I can’t thank enough The White Dress for being apart of our special day.  You ladies made me feel like a princess from start to finish!”

Pretty Post: Kelly & Ryan’s Winter Wedding In Newport

Combining the spirit of the holiday season with one of life’s most special traditions melted our hearts in a way that not many other things have before. When we got a look at Kelly and Ryan’s winter wedding in Newport, RI our jaws simply dropped- the splendid decor, the chilly scene and the divine ensembles were nearly all too romantic for us to handle! We have kept these images under-wraps for nearly a year and are now thrilled to share Kelly and Ryan’s seasonal nuptials with our readers! Scroll through the images and read on for more details!

Although all elements of this wedding are simply spectacular, we of course cannot get enough of the fashion! Kelly and Ryan made the right choices from start to finish, finding the perfect balance to celebrate their love and vision without looking overly ‘seasonal’. We love the groomsmen’s dashingly traditional tuxes and how they compliment the maids, who donned grey Coren Moore ‘Lila’ dresses adorned with a black sash, red gloves and luxurious chocolate furs.

We have only one word to describe Kelly’s look for the big day- unbelievable. She purchased a beautiful Priscilla of Boston gown aptly named ‘Hepburn’, after the queen of class herself, and this gown is truly the epitome of elegance. The bejeweled illusion neckline played off of the sparkle in the bride’s eye and the gown’s traditional satin ball skirt compliment her shape (not to mention this gown was nearly a perfect fit before alterations). We love how Kelly accessorized with a simple veil, pearl clutch (both purchased at the boutique) and her own tennis bracelet and earrings- nothing more. Her clean hair style and shimmering, yet soft makeup complimented the look perfectly. Because of the time of year, Kelly also participated in our fur rental service- this was the perfect finishing touch to complete her ensemble. She must have been a true vision to her husband-to-be during their first look (take a peek at the video by Buzz Media Company   below to see what we’re talking about).

Congratulations to these two special families and this incredibly special couple- your love has left us inspired and ready for the coming holiday season!

Pretty Post: Whitney and Matthew’s Sophisticated Fete

Whitney and Matthew’s August 10th Wedding at Pine Orchard Yatch & Country Club embodies pure elegance. From the grand bouquets and table design to the black tie dress code and of course the brides gown, this wedding reminds us that nothing speaks to love like thoughtful, sophisticated details. The images below, captured by Maler Photography, are a true testiment to this and we do hope you enjoy looking through them as much as we did!

Whitney has exquisite bridal taste. She choose a gorgeous Rivini gown at one of our first trunk shows  with the designer. Its flattering fit-to-flare shape was made unique with  intricate lace and a beautiful asymmetrical neckline. She complimented the look with a custom Modern Trousseau veil and Maria Elena accessories. Her maids were also dressed to the nines in beautiful blush lace Encore Collection dresses. We love  the girls black accessories- it helps tie them in with the groomsmen and makes the look even more chic. Whitney also booked our ‘Day-Of Dressing Service’, which takes any doubt or worry out of getting ready on the big day; from buttons to bustles, we have it all covered!  It was such an honor to be able to dress Whitney ON the special day!

Every detail in this wedding was utterly elegant. We love the grand feel Whitney and Matthew’s seaside wedding must have given the guests- our jaws would drop walking into the ballroom and setting our eyes on the nothing-short-of-spectacular cake by Ana Parzych! The stunning decor created by   Luxury Events Group, set off by the grand floral arrangements by   Salvatore Esposito, must have also been swoon-worthy.

A big thank you to the Maler’s for sharing these images- the tender moments you captured were truly special.

Here is a recount from Whiteney of her big day and here experience at The White Dress by the shore:

I’ve been dreaming about my Wedding Day since I was a little girl (as countless other girls have), and the reality of our Wedding surpassed anything I have ever imagined.  Everyone who played a role in our Wedding, whether they were behind the scenes or our guests, made our big day overwhelmingly perfect.  I had the pleasure of working with The White Dress By The Shore since the very beginning of the Wedding Planning Process up until my Wedding Day.  As a testament to the boutique, I found “The Dress” (with the help of Owner, Beth Chapman) the very FIRST time I went Wedding Dress Shopping during the WDBTS’s Lace Trunk Show in October 2012.  Beth made my one and only Wedding Dress Shopping experience so amazingly special, and was an absolute pleasure to work with.  After trying on 8 gowns, Beth helped me narrow my options down to three of my favorites, where I was then able to decide on “the one”.  Beth’s patience, professionalism, and expertise during my gown shopping experience went above and beyond.  By the time I left the store that day, I had my entire “Wedding Day Ensemble” (gown, belt, and headpiece)–and could not have been more thrilled!!  Further, as I mentioned, I had the pleasure of working with The White Dress By The Shore up until my Big Day. Penny, the in-house seamstress is absolutely wonderful to work with–a HUGE thank you to her for making my dress “fit like a glove”, and for ALL of her patience!!!  Shana  assisted me through the Bridesmaid Dress Shopping Experience and all of my Gown Alterations Appointments.  Even MORE special, Shana was there on my Wedding Day to help me get into my gown, and make sure everything went smoothly.  Shana was incredibly awesome throughout the entire process,there’s no way I could ever begin to thank her!  What’s more, is that throughout my entire experience with The White Dress By The Shore, everyone made me feel extremely special and even more importantly, like a friend.  In short, I can’t possibly thank all of the ladies at The White Dress By The Shore for ALL of their help and EVERYTHING they did to make my and Matt’s Wedding Day the most amazing day of our lives (I know he appreciated it! ;) )!!!”

Congratulations Whitney and Matthew- your grace inspires us and your wedding is one for the record books!
