Taylor and Aaron were married on May 13th at The Barn at Turkey Ridge.
When Taylor came in for her appointment, she said she wanted a romantic, light weight gown with lace. She tried on a few dresses that didn’t quite hit the mark, but the moment she slipped into this Modern Trousseau gown she knew it was the “one.”
We are so glad that her wedding day has come, and that she and Aaron can begin their lives together. We know the future holds great things for these two!
Congratulations Taylor and Aaron!

Lindsey and Travis were married on May 7, 2017 at Cape Charles.
Lindsey happened to come in for her appointment with us during our Paula Varsalona Bridal Trunk Show, and it was then that she fell in love with their sparkly soutache ball gown. The sample she tried had a deep v-neck, but she preferred the look of a strapless sweetheart neckline–we requested the change, and her gown was perfect!
We loved working with Lindsey, and are so glad we had the opportunity to help her find her dream dress.
Congratulations Lindsey and Travis!

Kelley and Colin were married on May 13, 2017, at The Thursday Club in San Diego, California.
Kelley first visited us last fall, not quite sure what style she wanted for her wedding day. We made sure she tried on a little bit of everything, and while we had narrowed down the type of styles she was liking, we hadn’t quite found the “one.” Then her mom pulled something totally different off the rack–Kelley didn’t think it looked that great on the hanger, but was willing to try it.
Turns out, it was everything she didn’t know she was looking for–and the sample fit perfectly! She walked out of store with her dream dress.
We’re so happy that Kelley’s special day has come, and it looks like it was just perfect.
Congratulations again Kelley and Colin!

Our Sealed With A Kiss bride Lori and the love of her life Brian tied the knot!
These two love birds wanted to celebrate their new life together in a small, special ceremony surrounded by only their closest family members and friends. It took place at The Inn at Willow Grove, and was captured by Heather Chipps Photography.
Lori and Brian are one of the most deeply in love couples we have ever seen. Each picture captured a smile, and an expression of bliss. They obviously couldn’t wait to start their new lives together.
When Lori first came to us she was concerned about finding the right gown in such a short period of time–it was only a couple of months until her big day. Choosing a dress turned out to be easy–she tried on a light gold a-line style from Lillian West, and we all knew it was the perfect look for her big day. The gown suited her perfectly.
We are so happy that Lori and Brian found each other, and wish them many happy years to come.

We are pleased to share these photos of our Sealed With A Kiss Richmond bride Katherine and her new husband Tyler!
Katherine chose a stunning lace and beaded trumpet style gown from Justin Alexander Signature for her big day. She paired it with a soft cathedral length veil.
We loved working with Katherine, and we’ll miss seeing her around the boutique. We wish the two of them the very best in their new life together!
Dear Pat: I have chosen my wedding gown and have made an appointment this weekend to return to the boutique to purchase it, but was wondering if I needed to also purchase my veil and accessories then? I’m not sure how long accessories take to come in. Any info you could provide would be helpful!
Great question! Most accessories take at least 4 months after being ordered to arrive, so you do not necessarily need order them at the same time as the dress (most brides typically order the dress nine months before the wedding). Just keep in mind that choosing the perfect veil and jewelry without having the dress on to see how it all looks together can be difficult, especially if you want to be sure the color of the veil matches the shade of white or ivory you ordered your dress in. After you purchase the dress the next time you’ll have the chance to put it on again is likely during your first alterations appointment a few weeks before your wedding–by that time it might be too late to order anything without paying extra to “rush” the order.

Dear Pat: I’ve been to a few bridal shops now and have a couple styles I really like, but a couple months ago I saw a picture of a dress online that I really loved and I just can’t get it out of my head. I know the designer and style and have called a few local places looking for it, but they don’t carry that designer. What’s the best way to go about tracking it down?
The best place to start is the designer’s website! Most designers have a page where they list their retailers, or stores that carry their designs. Look for the retailers closest to you and give them a call. If they don’t have the particular style you’re looking for, it couldn’t hurt to ask if they could get it. Often times designers have a loaner gown program, where they can send a requested dress to one of their retailers for a limited time–just keep in mind that there’s sometimes a charge for this service. Also ask if they’ll be hosting any trunk shows by this designer, since they will often be sent a variety of designs by that designer that they do not typically have in store. They might not be able to guarantee that the dress will be part of the trunk show, but often there’s a good chance!
