May 15th, 2013 – Comment

Lorna takes our breath away in the Dew Drop gown and Bolero. She was an absolute delight, and we just love how she worked that dress! The perfect blushing bride!

From the Bride:

After visiting half a dozen other shops, I was not finding the type of dress I envisioned. Too mainstream, not original enough. I fell in love with Claire Pettibone boutique the moment I walked into her shop. It was like being in a gourmet confectionary shop with too many delicious choices. Exquisite gowns in abundance. When I walked in I knew I was in the right place. There were dozens of dresses I could have been happy with. I wanted something with a vintage, hand made feel, lots of attention to small details, something that looked from a past century, but with a touch of whimsy as well. My experience there was wonderful. My choice, ‘Dew Drop’ fit all the criteria. I felt just like a faery queen from an 1800′s illustration, like I stepped out of my throne in the center of a large pink cabbage rose. Perfect! Cinderella had her pumpkin, I had my rose! On my wedding day, everyone kept saying to me ‘you look like a faery!’, or ‘flower goddess’ or ‘you look magical!’ which was exactly what I was trying to achieve. Couldn’t be happier.

Real Brides: Heidi wearing Midnight

April 20th, 2012 – Comment

Heidi is just stunning in the gorgeous Midnight gown in platinum. From the bride:

We were so incredibly excited to get married and couldn’t wait to begin the beautiful day together. I was very happy that we choose to make the ceremony more relaxing by seeing each other before the rest of the guests were around. This also enabled us to hang out with each other and our incredible wedding party most of the day. When else will you ever have all of your closest friends in one place? Why not make the most of it!”

Head to always lovely Green Wedding Shoes for more of this beautiful wedding!
