Get Ready for NY Bridal Fashion Week!

I’ve been lucky enough to go to New York Bridal Fashion Week twice and I can honestly tell you, it’s incredible. From the models strutting down the runway in the most gorgeous gowns to the designers up close and personal, it is a treat. You think you like these gowns in the pictures, but they look completely different up close. Take for instance Pnina Tornai’s gowns – they sparkle like none other. You wouldn’t believe how incredible her dresses are up close and personal.

Claire Pettibone has the most gorgeous lace you’ll ever see and she’s so sweet too! I’ve had the pleasure of meeting her several times and she remembers me – imagine that. She is one of my absolute favorite designers and I love following her work.

Matthew Christopher’s little blue dress is pictured here because I’m obsessed with it. It walked the runway a few years ago and honestly, I’m still not over it. I don’t know if it’s the color, the length or what, but it’s perfect.When shopping for my own wedding I could not afford couture, but I wanted a color – either pink or blue. I did end up in champagne, which sometimes, photographed pink!

Other designers pictured: Claire Pettibone, Pnina Tornai, Randy Fenoli, Matthew Christopher, Romona Keveza, Galia Lahav, Inbal Dror, Simone Carvalli, Yumi Katsura, Victor Harper Couture

Get ready for an exciting bridal fashion week, less than a week away!!

A Modern Vintage Styled Shoot

Antiques, exposed brick and raw, natural beauty were the inspiration for my Modern Vintage Shoot. Lace dresses and fluffy tulle skirts were the perfect pairing and gowns came pouring in from Kleinfeld Bridal, Concord Wedding Center, Matthew Christopher and Kimberly Pixton Couture.

The City Club, a local venue here in Concord, NC was the first stop in our photo shoot. The approximate capacity is around 600-1000 and this venue is simply beautiful. I am a huge fan of exposed brick, and this venue was simply stunning.


Items shown in the City Club Images are as follows:
-Allure Bridals “9051
(This dress can be found locally at Concord Wedding Center)
-Tuxedo from Jim’s Formal Wear at Concord Wedding Center
-Bouquet by Linda Gibson
-Lighted backdrop by Concord Wedding Center
-Jewelry borrowed from Pixton Couture
Pnina Tornai “32933053” (Can be found only at Kleinfeld Bridal)

Claire Pettibone “Alchemy” (Gown provided by Kleinfeld Bridal)
Pixton Couture “Demoiselle”
-Table Design by Linda Gibson

The next location we shot at was an old warehouse. It’s chippy paint and exposed brick were a charming touch that was so perfectly contrasted with the gowns.


Items shown in the Warehouse Images are as follows:
Pixton Couture “Marianne”

The Depot is a “pickers paradise” when it comes to all things antique, old, and shabby chic- a perfect setting for my shoot. I found a diamond in the rough when deciding to set one of the locations at The Depot at Gibson Mill.

Honeymoon Swimwear by Pixton is set to launch this fall with drop dead gorgeous swimsuits. Kim’s inspiration? “It’s just so hard to find a white swimsuit appropriate for a honeymoon.” You can find a simple white suit adorned with crystals aptly named “Crystal Bouquet” or for the more funky girl, the Racy Lacy suit. Either way, these suits are very well made, proudly in the USA.
