Today marks 6 days since our friend, Eric Langlois went missing at Lover Leap State Park in New Milford, CT. Our hearts continue to be heavy and we continue to pray that he is brought back to his family, his wife, Amber, their children Ryder and Avery, and their baby on the way.

We have searched for him, we have prayed for him and we have cried for him. The best way that we can now continue to honor him is through his incredible work. We have been so fortunate to work with Eric over the years, both with our brides and on editorial projects. Eric’s style is uniquely his. His use of light is unparalleled and it is a talent that he would share often with his colleagues through his workshops, many of which we were fortunate enough to style. Below are some of our favorite collaborations with Eric.
Please continue to pray for him, his family and his return home. #findericlanglois
It is our pleasure to introduce you to our new blog series called ‘Featured Wedding’, which holds a spot light on our favorite images and the color palate from a real wedding we just can’t get enough of. Scroll below to find out more about these gloriously sunny nuptials…
Recently featured on Style Me Pretty, the wedding of Marci and Paul is a sight to behold. We love their local vineyard setting (a ten minute jaunt from the store) and neutral palate with that bold pop of yellow.
We of course are a fan of their Coren Moore maids dresses purcahsed at the boutique with Marci’s signature hint of sunshine- she even wore a fabulously bright yellow Jenny Yoo frock to her rehearsal dinner. Marci’s gown is ‘Kendra’ by Modern Trousseau, the delicate placement of lace fits her every curve and we just love the look of that long romantic veil she’s paired it with.
We love this quote from Marci in regards to the feel of her wedding- she truly nailed it, “We wanted it to feel romantic yet laid back and comfortable. Much of what we decided on reflected this. From the outdoor rustic chic farm tables, to the dreamy floral arrangements of peonies, hydrangea & dahlia, to my Chantilly lace dress and fingertip lace edged veil.”
A bevy of local vendors are to thank for this fantastic fete and they are as follows:

For this installment of ‘Love, Your Style’ we are featuring a fun, eclectic wedding planned for summer in a historic shoreline town. The reception setting will be directly on a dock- the mood is nautical mixed with a vintage bohemian vibe and the whole wedding is full of sweet details. The color palate incorporates a bold navy with softer hues of sea foam, peach and marigold. Mixing textures is also important to this bride- laces and prints play nicely together to make for a style not soon to be forgotten.
1. Of course any ‘Love, Your Style’ post starts with the gown, in this case, it’s Ivy & Aster’s ‘Sophie’. The vintage style lace, braided straps and backless silhouette will look perfect on our bohemian loving bride. We can’t get enough of the plunging neckline.
2. This sparkly yet soft Maria Elena Ribbon Headpiece with ribbon detailing tops off the brides ethereal look. Pair this with a long, flowing veil for the ceremony and you’re set.
3. This look wouldn’t be complete without a fresh wildflower bouquet . Ranunculus, peony and mini roses in soft and bright colors make for the perfect mixture.
4. This ModCloth vintage style heel speaks to the 70′s vibe our bride is crazy about. The color works perfectly within the palate as well.
5. Check out this craft paper invitation suite we found on Etsy by inoroutmedia that works perfectly within the weddings’ colors.
6. For maids, we wanted to keep navy as the color but the party was open to different textures. We instantly thought of Jenny Yoo’s new Soical Collection Dresses. The two featured above, called ‘Hudson’ and ‘Gigi’, mix a fabulous print with a delicate lace- we can’t get enough of this combination!
7. This Ivy & Aster Flower Girl dress is the ‘icing on the cake’ for us- we love the lace detailing and whimsical skirt. Any little girl would feel like a princess for a day in this creation.
Ring us for a ‘Love, Your Style’ consultation at 860.669.4596.
