Exciting changes at TWD!

We are undergoing some exciting changes at TWD!

We are thrilled to introduce you to two new members of our team, Marissa (on left) and Victoria (on right). Marissa and Victoria both come to us with a background in fashion and retail. They are fashionable, creative and talented young women and we are thrilled to have them as part of our team. In addition to being stylists, Marissa will also be responsible for entering all of our orders and Victoria will be managing our blog and social media accounts.


We are sad to bid farewell to Jill and Jessie. Jill is moving to LA to start an exciting new chapter in her life and Jessie is going to school to become a nurse. We will miss them terribly, but know they will both be so successful! Holly is currently on maternity leave, as we await the arrival of Baby Finn. Please keep an eye on our blog for pictures around mid-September (or earlier if Holly has her way)!

We are also in the process of introducing a comprehensive new point of sale system that will make us more efficient in ordering, scheduling appointments and communicating with our clients.

With all of these changes, of course comes a learning curve. We ask for your patience and understanding as Victoria and Marissa learn the ropes and as we all get used to the new system. As always, we love your feedback. If you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to share then with me at!

Here’s to an exiting future!

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!
