Classic & Rustic Essex Steam Train Wedding

The White Dress By The Shore Bride Courteney’s Classic & Rustic Essex Steam Train Wedding Feature Friday 

When we opened the images of  The White Dress by The Shore bride Courteney’s classic & rustic Essex steam train wedding, we just knew we had to share them with you!  The Essex Steam Train & The Lace factory were the perfect combination for our bride Courteney and her husband Josh’s Big Day, with plenty of beauty for  Jessica Brigham, Brigham & Co. Photography to capture. The day was a perfect blend of classic and rustic design elements.  The organic beauty of  stunning greenery and soft ivory’s & yellow florals took center stage, while soft drapery and light added to that romantic air. Courteney’s wedding captured all of the beauty that Connecticut offers while creating a classic, yet rustic wedding.

Courteney wore the elegant, Anne Barge, lace & crepe, Jonquil gown. This sophisticated gown had long sleeves combined with stunning double buttons down the back. She finished her classic bride look with a stunning Augusta Jones lace veil.  We hope you enjoy all the pretty and can gain a little bit of classic meets rustic inspired inspiration from The White Dress by The Shore bride Courteney, and her perfect day!

Hog River Brewery Rustic Inspiration Shoot

Getting married at a Brewery or looking for inspiration for an out-of-the-box-wedding? Then look no further for rustic inspiration than from this recent styled shoot that we we collaborated on at Hog River Brewery.

From Jubilee Events: 

We came up with the idea to create an urban oasis when Anaise approached us to work on a shoot and had an amazing new venue in mind—Hog River Brewing Co. in Hartford, CT. The building is located in a bustling section of Hartford and it’s interior mirrors that same energy. Brick walls and concrete floors, lots of industrial fixtures and tall spacious ceilings with a laid back welcoming vibe are what you find inside.
 

It’s modern, fresh and edgy and we worked to create a design that fits with the look of the brewery while also bringing it to life with organic and natural elements. We kept the color story neutral—vivid green, white and concrete grey with mixed metals like copper, steel and gold. With hanging greenery installations, a living wall, modern and fresh drapery that incorporates new techniques (like dip dye and metallics) and bountiful floral details, we sought to create an oasis inside this industrial space. The looks comes together through the talents of Ryan Designs and Flowers by Justine, along with details from a local maker, Hartford Prints and local chalk artist Jaime LaDucer and some fresh new rental items from Peak Event Services, a division of Rentals Unlimited that is currently launching.

 

It wouldn’t be fresh and modern without bridal looks right from the April bridal market! Our stylist, Beth Chapman of The White Dress by the Shore, selected several new looks from her visit to bridal market in New York weeks earlier to guarantee our look in new and edgy. Clean and elegant with long sleeves  was her vision for our bride and a stunning bold blue for the groom!  And of course to signify a party, a bride needs a sparkly gown!  Beth selected the perfect one from Blush by Hayley Paige as a second look. 

From TWD owner/stylist, Beth Chapman: 

In order to offset the rustic vibe of the brewery, I selected fashion that was clean, modern and sophisticated.  The long sleeve Antonio Gual crepe gown embodied both of those characteristics.  The dramatic open back provided a little bit of edge and sex appeal.  The reception dress from Blush by Hayley Paige carried through the sophisticated feel, but added a subtle touch of sparkle to signify that this indeed was a party!  The deep red of the Amsale bridesmaid dress was the perfect compliment to the soft tones of the gorgeous florals by Justine.

Behind the Scenes: New York Bridal Fashion week at Carolina Herrera

We are often asked about New York Bridal Fashion Week and what it is like for us!  Photographer Shaunae Treske  shadowed us to our Carolina Herrera appointment and got a behind the scene glimpse of a bridal market appointment.  Bridal Fashion Week occurs twice a year, in April and in October.  Our appointments either take place in designated hotels where multiple designers are showing or at the designer’s showroom if they are New York based.  If there is a runway show, generally it is on the Thursday or Friday of market and a separate ‘writing appointment’ takes place later in the weekend where we are able to see the gowns up close and personal and learn the details about each gown, including pricing. 

We LOVE going to appointments at the House of Herrera.  The showroom itself is perfectly appointed.  Every detail is impeccable!  There are always lovely sweet treats to enjoy and they serve the MOST delicious iced cappuccino. This market we even caught a glimpse of Mrs. Herrera herself, who popped into our appointment to say hello! …and YES, we all swooned! We wish every market appointment could be as glamorous! 

Thank you Shaunae for joining us and capturing this fun part of our job so beautifully!

New York 2018 Bridal Trends

We just returned from New York Bridal Fashion Week and what a week it was!  I have said it before, but it really holds true now…what a great time to be a bride! There is literally a gown for EVERY bride and I am thrilled because so many of the trends are everything that I adore in bridal!  Below are some of our favorite trends coming up for the Fall 2018 season!  

 

Non strapless!  

Brides are rejoicing everywhere, because it is all about the NON-strapless neckline.  The most predominate necklines that we saw were v-necks and off the shoulder necklines. The v-necklines varied from demure and classic to plunging and daring.

Bows 

I would put a bow on every gown if I could!  So naturally, I was thrilled to see bows grace so many runways!

Capes, Cover ups and Overskirts

  Designers are providing brides with various options to allow them to change up their look from ceremony to reception.  Whether it is a dramatic cape, a voluminous overskirt, or a dainty caplet, brides have plenty of options for surprising their guests with a “second look”, without having to change their gown!

Appliqués

  We saw considerably less lace this season.  The texture instead came from appliqués.  I adore this romantic and feminine detail!

Clean and Simple

  Many designers were cleansing the palate by offering completely clean dresses (and jumpsuits!).  They showed that less was definitely more! The details came from beautiful necklines, seaming details…. or bows!

Fringe

  One of the biggest fashion elements that appeared on several runways was fringe. What a fun way to add a little sass to your wedding day look!

Needless to say, we can’t wait for Fall 2018! We are thrilled to already have many of these trends represented in the boutique.  Stay tuned to the blog, as we are working on post showing the Fall 2018 trends that are already in store!  


​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.
