A few months ago the wonderful Terri of Terri Isenhour Photo approached us about a shoot she was planning with Logan of Real Southern Accents at Green Springs Plantation. They were looking for a gown with some Southern flair that would complement the acres of greenery and old world charm at the plantation. One gown from Augusta Jones immediately popped into our heads, and turns out it was just perfect for the venue.
Gown: Augusta Jones Bridal from Sealed With A Kiss
In just a few weeks, Sealed With A Kiss will be hosting a trunk show and designer day with the one and only Antonio Gual. We can’t wait!
During the trunk show we will have a variety of designs from Antonio’s Tulle New York collection for brides to see, feel and try on. You can check out the collection here:
Designer Antonio Gual himself will also be in store to meet with brides, tell them about his work, and to offer design and styling input. Not many brides have the chance to meet the designer of their gown, so this is truly an amazing opportunity!
Appointments will be limited, so be sure to call today to schedule yours!
Here’s a quick peek at some of the gowns you’ll see during the trunk show weekend!
You can find out more about Anny Lin at annylinbridal.com.
Why We Love Anny Lin Bridal
Anny Lin comes from family of wedding gown designers, and she has blended designs and techniques that have inspired her to create truly unique, couture designs for the modern bride.
Every gown in her collection features an array of carefully designed, eye catching details such as beading, feathers, cut outs and draping.
Anny Lin’s designs feature a variety of silhouettes and fabrics. Brides love that she is not afraid to add color to her gowns, so many designs have blush, champagne and ombre options.
We also love Anny Lin for their willingness to allow the individual bride to be a part of the design process–they will customize and combine designs to create a one-of-a-kind style to suit the needs and wants of the bride.
Be sure to schedule your appointment for the Anny Lin Trunk Show soon! You will not want to miss out on a chance to see these gorgeous dresses.
This year has been filled with fun, laughter and excitement thanks to all of the 2016 brides we had the pleasure of working with. We are so lucky to have met such amazing women, and we are so touched that they let us play a small part in making their big day wonderful. Here’s a quick review of some of our most memorable weddings this year!

Here at Sealed With A Kiss we specialize in customizing a bride’s wedding day look to suit her individual style. Sometimes that means working closely with our designers to combine or create pattern changes on a design, but most of the time our owner-designer Susan and our expert tailoring team do the customizations right here in our store. Here’s a closer look at some of the easy ways you can use alterations to customize your wedding gown.
Our bride Rachel found a beautiful lace style she loved, but after she bought the dress she thought the illusion neckline was a bit too much–so we redesigned it! Rachel was much happier with the regular sweetheart neckline and beaded straps.
Our bride Sarah loved an all over silk gown from Justin Alexander, but said she would love it more if it had a lace top–so we made her dreams come true! Our owner Susan worked with Sarah to design an off the shoulder lace jacket that she can take on and off on her wedding day as she pleases. The jacket gives the gown a totally different look, and it was exactly what Sarah was looking for.
Bride Judy fell in love with the fitted gown on the left, but had originally wanted a shorter dress so that it would be easy to dance all night at her reception–so we converted the skirt into a high-low design!
Bride Kelli absolutely adored this gown from Justin Alexander, but didn’t want a gown with a high neckline–so our tailoring team created this gorgeous v-neckline for her! Kelli loved how her gown turned out.
Alterations open up an array of possibilities for customizing your gown, so feel free to ask your stylist or seamstress about altering areas you want changed. We guarantee you’ll be ecstatic with the end result!
Strapless and illusion necklines are often the most asked for wedding gown styles, but it’s about time that v-necks get some attention! If you’re the type of bride who wants the security of having straps but doesn’t want the modest look of a boat neck, the v-neck style is for you. Scroll through for some of our favorite v-neck designs from designers we carry!
We just love scalloped lace, and the scallops along the neckline of this gown make for a very romantic style ! The low back adds another beautiful element to this fitted gown.
2. The v-neck design adds a touch of classic elegance to this tea-length gown. Perfect for the bride who wants a formal look but doesn’t like the heaviness of a full length gown.
3. This French lace gown has a sheer v-neckline featuring hand-cut lace applique. The back features buttons that start at the end of the v-back and trail down to the end of the train.
4. This stunning charmeuse gown channels old Hollywood glam. Look out for the unique back!
5. This sultry yet elegant looks has an absolutely stunning beaded sequin chiffon top. The sheath skirt is light and flowy, and features a side split.
6. This flowy a-line gown has a v-neck top accented with scalloped lace, which you’ll also find adorning the hem of the skirt. Look out for the pretty gold beaded belt accenting the waist!
7. This French chantilly lace gown features a scalloped lace v-neckline and backline. Brides also love the daring split on the front of the skirt and the delicate cap sleeves.
8. This regal gown has a plunging v-neckline decorated with beaded appliques over metallic lace. The silk dupioni skirt features not only buttons running through the end of the train, but also pockets!
9. This v-neck gown is a classic! It’s made from a soft and flowy milky challis fabric, and features a softly ruched bodice. The back has an ultra low u-shaped back.
