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.
