Flora for the New Year

Flora for the New Year

Happy New Year! Here at The Castle, we're preparing for a busy 2022. They say it may be the busiest wedding year ever...I guess we'll find out if that holds true. But no matter what, we know that beautiful weddings and love will prevail. Starting the year off with this gorgeous wedding featuring our first Flora bride from the new Three Graces Collection. Filled with color, personality, and FUN, I hope this wedding warms your heart as we get ready to begin the new year with love, compassion and JOY.Bride Dressing for wedding in Claire Pettibone Flora Wedding Dress with flowers girlsWedding dress Flora by Claire Pettibone and wedding shoesBride before wedding with flower girlsBride walking down stairs Samie chose the romantic and elegant Flora gown for her big day, and doesn't she absolutely rock it?! This gown is adorned with lush red and pale pink embroidered flowers, trailing sage vines, and a long, dramatic train. We even customized the dress for this bride, replacing the original petal pink silk lining with our pearl ivory, and we made her long sleeves detachable. As you'll soon find out, this bride had a clear vision of what she wanted for her big day, and it was absolutely stunning!

I love the pops of red sprinkled throughout, tying in with the Flora gown, and the emerald velvet bridesmaids gowns truly set the scene for a timeless, wintery vibe. And I must say, the florals by the bride's very own mom are the perfect addition to this fabulous bridal party!

Their cozy, bohemian ceremony was clearly filled with poignant moments and full hearts. I love the simplicity of it all; they let nature set the scene, and fully embraced the season. And then...into the golden light...

The way the sunlight beams down on these two is absolute magic, and Bonnie Turner captured every minute of this wedding so beautifully. Taking time away from the party for these intimate shots is always worth it. Show off the gown you spent years dreaming about, soak in the pure love for each other, and really live in the moment. There aren't many times in life when you'll be able to frolic in a field with your beloved, so take it all in before it's on to the party! Starting with dances with dad (showing off the sleeveless look of this gown) to fireworks and fun, keep reading for the best part!

From our team to your home, Happy New Year!
