From the venue, to the special details, and of course the gorgeous gown, this month's Pretty Post speaks to the timeless elegance which we are all about! The Saybrook Point Inn was the perfect venue to host Lorin and Skip's December reception- its views overlooking a quaint marina on Long Island Sound couldn't have made a better backdrop for their special day. We love photographer Steve Depino's ability to capture the spirit of the bride and groom as well all of those intimate moments you won't soon forget, including the images of our very own seamstress (and Beneath the Gown owner), Josie, dressing Lorin before her walk down the aisle. Lorin chose to partake in our Dressing Service in which we send a talented seamstress to your location the day of your wedding to take the stress out of dressing! Lorin wore a gorgeous Augusta Jones organza a-line gown with a sheer bateau neckline with buttons cascading down the back. We love how the vintage clasp at the waist plays off of all of her other fabulous accessories including the Maria Elena headpiece and bracelet and Haute Bride coin pearl earrings.  Lorin's ensemble was made extra special by the straight-off-the-runway ostrich feather bolero from her fabulous employer, Ralph Lauren. The satin fingerless gloves were her 'something old' ,as they were worn by her beloved grandmother on her wedding day. Her flawless beauty is by Nicole Moleti for Laura Mercier and her hair was done by Essence of Old Saybrook. The maids wore  a look inspired by Jackie Kenney's bridal party reinvented up by The White Dress by the shore owner, Beth Chapman and bridesmaid designer, Coren Moore.   They paired a crisp white shirt (by Ralph Lauren of course), a navy shantung skirt (Coren Moore) and pearls to create a refreshing yet timeless take on the bridesmaid ensemble. The dapper groomsmen were outfitted with sophisticated style in none other than Ralph Lauren tuxedos. Here is Lorin's recount of her dress shopping experience: "I had the most amazing experience selecting the perfect gown for my wedding at The White Dress by the Shore. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly and made me feel at ease every time I came back for a fitting. Not only is the gown selection exquisite â but the accessories are a must! Beth has the best selection of vintage-inspired jewelry that really adds the finishing touch to any look. I picked out all of my jewelry, shoes, veil, headpiece and even underpinnings â all at The White Dress. It make things so much easier, especially during such a busy time in a brideâs life. A very special thanks to Josie who made my dress fit 'like a glove'!" white_dress-34 Cheers to Lorin and Skip! We loved everything about your winter wedding day!
