We are excited to share another classic and timeless wedding featuring one of our real The White Dress By The Shore brides! Any brides dreaming of classic elegance bridal style will not want to miss today's real wedding inspiration right here in our home state of Connecticut.


Bride Allie and her groom Tristen planned an early autumn wedding on the water at Saint Clements Castle & Marina. The outdoor wedding ceremony was understated but chic, with a focus on the amazing waterfront views. For her classic and elegant bridal style, Allie was stunning wearing the Meredith wedding dress by Jenny Yoo. This beautiful wedding gown has a flattering fit-to-flare silhouette and buttons down the back of the gown. We love the cowl neckline and off-the-shoulder draped sleeves, all of which add a bit of modern flair to a classic bridal dress. A timeless bouquet of white roses and a simple long wedding veil completed bride Allie's timeless wedding day look. 


Bride Allie was a classic beauty in all of her wedding day outfits. From a pearl studded pj set and bridal robe on wedding morning, to her reception bridal dress, Allie was an elegant bride throughout the wedding day. For her reception bridal look, Allie changed into Frankie by Untamed Petals, a strapless mini dress with a large bow detail on the back. 


Our bride Allie shares:


"Our wedding day was nothing short of a dream. Every weather forecast called for 'damaging winds and persistent rain' as Hurricane Lee headed for New England. However, we were somehow blessed with bright sunshine that broke through the clouds right before our ceremony and opened to a rainbow during cocktail hour. The weather perfectly depicted the love that we felt from our guests the entire night."

Bride Allie was a dream to shop with and shared this about her wedding dress shopping experience at TWD:

"The day I found my wedding dress is one of my most cherished memories and that is all thanks to The White Dress by the Shore and their wonderful staff. In fact, I loved it so much I just had to come back to get my veil and little white dress here too! The joy I felt after purchasing my wedding dress was matched on each return to the boutique, which I believe says wonders about the true magic created within this space. The boutique itself is the perfect combination of chic, classic, and elegant and the staff is incredibly warm, inviting, and encouraging. I felt so comfortable, confident, and celebrated by the bridal consultants that I worked with. They took the time to not only get to know me but also my family and friends that came with me to shop. The entire process was incredibly efficient and personalized, which made it extra special! I would recommend the White Dress by the Shore to any and all brides! It is an incredibly special place that made a day I have dreamt of for years more than I ever imagined!"
