We are the first to admit that we have a soft spot for a classic New England wedding, so when we saw the pictures of our bride Kim's nautical fete at the Guilford Yacht Club
, it instantly earned a spot as a 'Feature Friday' post! The seaside soiree was captured by one of our favorite photography teams- Robert & Kathleen Trenske
and features personal touches right down to the labels on the wine bottles- which read 'Andrew and Kim's Wedding'! We love the bright coral pop of the maid's dresses against Kim's sleek and classic ensemble. Kim was a dream to dress- she choose a beautiful lace Augusta Jones
gown with a fit-to-flare shape; we accessorized her with modern yet timeless accessories including a crystal cuff, coin pearl earrings, and a classic fingertip length veil.
We were touched to receive these sweet words from Kim after the wedding:
" Dear Beth Chapman and crew,
Thank you so much for all of your fine work at The White Dress by the shore.Â Every single person that I worked with at you shop was amazing!!Â All of the women were professional, sweet, helpful and hard working.Â The store manager was with me for hours at my last fitting to make sure my gown was perfect!Â You do great work and I highly recommend you to any future bride I meet. Thank you so much for all that you did for me!Â Beth, thanks for your advice in the fittings.Â I love the way that you run your shop!Â Love, Kim"
Congrats Kim & John- we can't get enough of your nautical touches and sweet style!
