​Warehouse XI Soft Floral and Industrial Inspiration Styled Shoot

When we saw the color palette for this unique warehouse shoot, we immediately wanted to include this amazing watercolor Romona Keveza Collection gown. We felt that the gown’s soft floral with pinks, blues, and soft touches of red complimented the rustic nature of the warehouse and made the dress and details of the shoot really pop.

For the bridesmaids dresses we chose to go with a deep burgundy color to soften the blues incorporated in the shoot as well as to compliment the copper elements. The design by Infinite events  and florals by Stoneblossom were modern yet romantic which we felt worked perfectly with both the gown and the bridesmaids dresses.

For the men’s fashion we collaborated with Aldo’s House of Formal to create a look that spoke to a fashion forward, modern groom that was looking for touches of unique flair. Warehouse XI was really the perfect venue for this shoot, providing a clean industrial feel to coincide with the softness of our watercolor palette.


Check out this behind the scenes look at this industrial styled shoot from Artistic Wedding Films.

Feature Friday: Sarah’s White Carpet Appointment Experience

Experiencing a White Carpet Appointment is experiencing luxury. One of the newest brides to join the TWD family was able to experience this unique opportunity for herself. Sarah had the boutique all to herself for a private shopping experience accompanied by friends and family who were able to enjoy nibbles, champagne, and a photographer to capture every magical memory of her appointment.

Sarah worked with our amazing stylist Kim. She had nothing less to say about Sarah other than her and her whole family were amazing.

“From the moment Sarah and her friends & Family walked into The White Dress, the laughter love and excitement was contagious! Sarah had such an incredible support system who were all just as excited about dress shopping as she was! Sarah became an instant friend! She was absolutely stunning in each dress she tried on yet the one she chose is true perfection on her!  It was such an honor to be a part of this experience with her and her family… it was a day I’ll never forget xoxo” – Kim Crowley 

Not only did Sarah get to say YES to her dress, she also got to do a little shopping for  bridesmaids dresses for her girls in chic by the shore, our bridesmaid atelier!

Feature Friday: Lauren & Mike’s Classic, Casual Farm Wedding

We adored dressing Lauren, and are so thrilled to feature the images from her classic, casual farm wedding{captured by Trisha Keeler Photo}.

Lauren & Mike were high school sweethearts and grew up in Madison, CT, so it was fitting that their wedding take place there. Every single detail-  from their beautiful Madison beach portraits to the intimate ceremony and reception at Barberry Hill Farm –  fell perfectly into place.

Lauren has an effortless sense of style and it was reflected in her wedding day style as well! When shopping for her gown she told us that she was looking for something classic (and a touch preppy), but comfortable.  Lauren is a personal trainer and wears yoga pants all day…so comfort was key.  We worked with designer, Kate McDonald to customize the perfect simple gown that had just enough detail. The result was perfect…see below for yourself!

Pretty Post: Caitlin & John’s Preppy Castle Hill Newport Wedding

When it comes to a New England wedding, The Castle Hill Inn in Newport, RI is simply one of our favorite venues, and Caitlin and John’s nautical nuptials were just as stunning as their backdrop. We can’t get enough of all of the preppy details!  It was such a pleasure getting to work with Caitlin on this custom gown from Kate McDonald, it combined her own personal sporty style with a touch of classic elegance, a perfect fit for a coastal wedding! Scroll down to enjoy all of Caitlin and John’s photos shot by the talented Meghan Sepe….. And you won’t want to miss the most precious kiddos!
