Congratulations Tiffany!

Here are some pictures that were sent to me by email from one of our gorgeous brides that I wanted to share. She got married recently in Austin and you can see that her new Beaux loves Austin as well!

Tiffany had her gown alterations done at our store.
We loved working with her and am so glad to see pictures of her from her wedding day.
I love her hair style that she chose. Very elegant!

New Arrival: Stunning Wedding Gown

Hutson/Pace Wedding

Sarah Pace got all of her bridesmaid dresses as well as her bridal veil and accessories from our store. The bridesmaids wore a plum colored dress from Raylia Designs and the bride's gown is San Patrick by Pronovias.

I had the pleasure of doing the alterations on this beautiful wedding gown of Sarah's. It was so well made and beautifully crafted! What a gorgeous fabric too!

Sarah and all of her family and friends who came in with her were SO sweet and great to work with. I love customers as them because they are so fun to be around and make work seem like a nice conversation with a good friend.

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Hutson!

Huang/Nelson Wedding

Sharon and Haydn were married on September 27th, 2008 and they sent me the sweetest thank you card and note. It had a gorgeous picture of the bride and groom on it so of course I had to frame it and put it up on our walls so we can see it always.

They sent me a CD of thousands of great pictures!!! I included my top 3 of the wedding party.
There were so many good ones, but I decided to get one of the bride and groom, the bride with her maids and the groom with his trouble makers! :)

This couple was AWESOME and so was thier family and friends.
Thank you to this very special couple and we hope to see you again when you have weddings to attend!

VOTE!

Today is election day and I will be very curious to see how the true poll results end up.

There have been many past elections where the polls showed one thing and the results ended up another- so, I am hoping for the best in the 2008 election and asking that all of you go out and vote.

It is your civic duty and privileage as a US Citizen so get out there while you still can... time is ticking away!!!

Real Bride: Jacklyn

This blog entry is probably the highlight of my week!
We got the sweetest note and pictures today from one of our beloved brides and I am so thankful each time a customer gives us pictures.

Jacklyn got her wedding dress from us as well as lots of other things for her wedding. She even has a picture here of her bridal tank that she purchased in our store. I love the pictures these tanks make for the wedding day. You definitely know who the bride was!

The wedding was held in Round Rock at Casa Blanca. I really enjoyed working with Jacklyn's wedding coordinator, Deidre Brown. Deidre is owner and operator of Detailed Weddings by Deidre and she is certainly on point and super friendly. She does such a great job for her clients and goes the extra mile!






Prom is here!

Prom season will be here before you know it and we have our new gowns arriving each week! Shop early for the best selection.

Real Bride: Meredith

Meredith sent these great pictures this week from her wedding and they were too good not to share! She looked beautiful in her wedding dress .

The veil is unique becuase of the crystal edge beading which really adds to the detail of the veil.
It was great working with Meredith and her mom. I can see that it was a lovely wedding at Texas Old Town in Kyle.

Meredith, thank you for sharing your pictures with us! WE are so glad you found  your wedding dress with us and we wish you all the best in the upcoming years for your marriage. Congratulations!!

Give Thanks!

Zach and I attended a weekend conference Friday and Saturday. With the topics that we went over during the 2 days we were there, we both are reminded more and more how fortunate we are to have great a great upbringing and continued support from those that love us. Today, Sunday, I went to a VERY close friends wedding. The ceremony was at Chapel Docelnia in Driftwood, Texas.

After a weekend as this, the vows they repeated had new a strengthened meaning to me as I heard something new today in thier marriage ceremony. I have been to countless wedding ceremonies, but today I listened with an enhanced point of view.



Custom Sewing Project!

Look at these colors! Growing up, I have always loved lavender. I always dreamed of having lavender in everything when I grew up. I never got too far into pink and that is probably because I grew up with 2 brothers and had to get wrestled every week while continuing to maintain my girliness!

Lavender is the right amount of femininity and grace. I love how this homeowner chose to mix lavender with the key lime green. Both colors are very soft and we added a nice touch of softness to the main focus wall of the room for the upcoming arrival of Baby Goldman! Here are some pictures of what we did before Pottery Barn Kids showed up with the furniture selections. The crisp white swags add an innocence and freshness with the light green polka dots.

There were some privacy and light control issues we were trying to solve as well as utilize some pre-purchased hardware. So, with everything we were hoping to accomplish- the homeowner was very pleased with how everything met their needs!

Driskill Hotel: Victorian Room and Citadel Opening

Last week I attended the historic Driskill Hotel opening of their two event rooms: The Victorian and the Citadel. These rooms are the yin and yang of decor. The Citadel is very urban lounge in style. It features red textured fabrics, velvet black and white accents throughout. I love that there is an upper balcony as well for guest to eat, talk or enjoy the scenery from above. This room is on the main level of the hotel and is adjacent to the hotel cafe and bakery. You can see the picture I took from the upper balcony. I really loved their presentation of food and beverage. They turned the simple... into sassy.

Past The upstairs Mezanine of the hotel is the Victorian Room. It is very sweet and inocent, but has a high level of class. Does this sound like a bride you know? It is surprisingly one of thier lowest price point room rates even though it does not miss a single detail with its elegant golds, ivorys and light shades of romance. :) It was so hard to decide which room …

Wedding Vows

Wedding VOWS:

'Tis the wedding season and we are not kidding. The conversation of weddings, wedding planning, invitation lists, where and how much is unending during this "season" AND always interesting. One way to make your wedding personalized to you is the wedding vows. After all, it is all about the commitment and the vows you are making to each other.

Make sure you and your betrothed are on the same page with personalizing your vows. If you go that route, here are a few tips to help you get started.

Incorporating Tradition:Ask your officiant for a look at the vows that would ordinarily be used at your particular church, synagogue or other ceremonial venue. You can use them as a jumping-off point for your own words of love and commitment. A civil ceremony will give you and your fiance the freedom to write your own vows. Be sure to ask the officiant, if you will need to include any particular words or terms to make your "I dos" valid in the eyes of your faith…
