There is nothing more special than when one of our own ties the knot! So when our beloved assistant manager, Shana said “I do” to her dapper groom Matt last October, you can be sure none of our eyes were dry! Scroll below for a look at this elegant affair that is s so near and dear to our hearts.
The groom and his groomsmen prepared for the big day at The Inn at Middletown, complete with a toast, potato skins and wings!
The bride’s custom Modern Trousseau gown was adorned with beading applied by hand by her talented mother, who also designed the bridesmaid jewelry. Additionally, Shana placed a heart-shaped piece of her fathers shirt inside the bodice- keeping a piece of him with her on the big day.
To compliment the elegant feel of the wedding, Shana’s maids wore long chiffon Jenny Yoo gowns in ‘charcoal’ which were adorned at the waist with beaded Monya sashes.
The bride’s beautiful soft cream bouquet was designed by local favorite, Fleur De Lis.
Shana’s journey down the aisle was truly one to remember. We loved watching her walk out onto the beautifully manicured lawn of the Wadsworth Mansion.
The images above were captured by our former stylist turned talented photographer, Abigail Scott and they truly capture the love shared between this incredible couple. If you have had the pleasure of meeting our dear and beautiful Shana, you know that she is nothing short of hysterical, and her groom, Matt, is such an equal match! We loved dining and dancing amongst friends and family in the great hall of this grand mansion- it was truly such a special celebration for an equally fantastic pair.

We think this Thursday’s ‘Picture of the Week’ is nothing short of dazzling. This image, recently featured on Style Me Pretty, truly shines a light on all that is wonderful about a winter wedding- and even though today is the first day of Spring the spirit of this photo resonates with the spirit of the most special day, no matter what the season. Don’t you agree?!
