What a Weekend!
The fun thing about Trunk Shows like the one we just had is the insanity...all the appointments, all the brides and their families, all the dresses and jewelry!!! And in this very special case, the designer of the collection, too....The down side is we don't really have time to blog or tweet and keep you up to date....
Not to worry, that's why we're here today. :)
We kicked off our wonderful weekend with a full day of appointments, fabulous flowers from Brocade Designs, and the ever-delicious cupcakes from B. Jacksons.
Friday morning was full of incredibly sweet brides and their families. We could go on and on about them all but definitely want to make sure you know Nina...If you follow blogs, be sure and add hers to your regular visits. She's charming and girly and all things fashionable....we loved working with her and helping her find the dress! (Not that she needed our help...read this post to see how easy it was for her to find her gown! Amazing!!) Here's Nina (with Steph, below) and on Twitter, too (which is where the photo came from :)). A living doll, we tell you!
The day led into a private cocktail reception we held for our Platinum by Priscilla of Boston designer. We invited our friends and fellow bridal folks, and our brides who have worn - and will wear - Platinum gowns. It was, in a word, delightful.
Which brings us to Louise...some of you may already know her; perhaps in the bridal world you know her as The Thirty Something Bride. She came to our cocktail party Friday night with Tabitha, a planner and blogger for the amazing Ashley's Bride Guide. Louise was very observant and personable...she was right at home among her new friends, and with camera in hand documented many things we were not able to capture (see image of Platinum gown below...*swoon*). Please do check out her blog...be sure to catch our favorite post here. She's feisty and honest and refreshingly candid. Welcome to our world, Louise. You are a delight!
Other fun moments at the cocktail reception:
Crystal, our first bride ever to wear Platinum, with the designer of her gown! A very special moment!
Jessica from Priscilla of Boston, with Nashville make up artist extraordinaire Amy Lynn Larwig, and The Bride Room's Amy :)
Some informal modeling of Platinum gowns and Haute Bride accessories!
Saturday brought another full day and lots more "this is it!" moments. It is a weekend we will not soon forget....
Which leads us to...more special events! Mark your calendars!!
