I am so thrilled to celebrate The White Dress by the shore'sÂ 12 year anniversary! Â The industry has changed quite a bit in the past 12 years, but oneÂ thing that stays consistent is the classic aesthetic of our brides and our passion for helping them look beautiful on their wedding day!
I am so grateful to work side by side with the beautiful women featured in this post every day. Â They are the heart and soul of The White Dress by the shore! Â They are talented, smart, bright women who have a passion for the bridal industry and for making our clients happy. I am thrilled to introduce our newest member, my 15 year old daughter Lindsay. Â She was 3 years old when The White Dress opened it's doors. Â She was in her princess phase and loved being in the store and dreamed of working in it some day. Â It is hard to believe that the day has arrived! Â You will see her in the store on Saturdays assisting the stylistsÂ and greeting clients. Â I am so proud toÂ watch her blossom into a beautiful young woman!
A big thank you toÂ Amy Trahant of Take Aim Photography for the following (amazing) images!

And of course, to our brides. Â Many of you have become like family to us over the years. Â We have loved styling you, laughing with you and crying with you (happy tears, of course). Â Without you there would be no TWD and we are eternally grateful for your business and your support!
