Pretty Post: Jessica & Ryan’s Beachy Wedding

Winter may be on its way, but snow and frigid temperatures are the furthest things from our mind right now. After looking at photographs from Jessica and Ryan’s wedding, we can’t stop thinking about summer! From the bride’s accessories to the venue’s decorations, everything had a beachy vibe. Not only did guests sign adirondack chairs, but they also hit golf balls into the ocean – talk about a good time! Scroll below to view the adorable images. We hope they bring back happy memories of warm weather!

“We were drawn to the ‘rustic farm’ look but also have a classic/traditional style. We tried to keep everything as simple as possible! We wanted our wedding to reflect the things we love, so we focused on delicious food (plus open bar!) and an amazing band. The rest just fell into place! We made every decision together but didn’t overthink anything. It was truly the perfect day!”

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.

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!

Pretty Post: Sarah & James’ Botanical Bliss at Belle Mer



What is sweeter than a sunny day on the water, succulents adorning your ceremony, and the love of your life waiting for you at the end of the aisle dressed in a seersucker suit? In our eyes, just about nothing. We literally jumped with joy when we first spotted our bride, Sarah’s wedding in the latest issue of Bliss Celebrations. Scroll below to take a peek at these stunning Newport nuptials.

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!”
