Styled Shoot at Mount Ida Farm

And we weren’t wrong!

One gown, endless possibilities!

Every once in awhile we stylists get asked if we have a favorite gown–while it’s hard to choose just one, this silk ball gown from Justin Alexander is definitely one of our favorites, because it’s so easily customizable!

It’s a flattering silhouette on all body types, and we’ve had brides add different types of straps, sleeves, jackets and belts to it, creating gorgeous custom looks. Here are a few examples!

In the photos above, our bride Elizabeth paired her gown with scalloped lace cap sleeves. They added a soft touch to her gown, and the look worked perfectly with her fall wedding!

When she first arrived to shop for a wedding gown, our bride Sara was torn between the simple silk ball gown and another gown that had an illusion front and off the shoulder sleeves–we were able to combine both looks by creating a custom lace jacket with the neckline she wanted, easily paired with the silk ballgown. She also added a custom beaded sash to add a touch of sparkle to her look. It turned out great, and she had the option of taking the jacket off after the ceremony so that she could bust a move out on the dance floor.

 

Cameron wanted something elegant but wasn’t comfortable going strapless on her big day, so we added straps to her dress! We used matching fabric to create ruched, silk, slightly off the shoulder straps to create a look she loved.

Our bride Amanda fell in love with the simple silk ballgown, but after thinking it over decided she wanted to find a way to add the lace illusion neckline style she loved to the gown–we obliged! She worked one on one with our in-house designer to choose the lace and shape of the illusion top she wanted added to the dress.

Don’t you agree that every time a bride has customized this gown it’s been gorgeous? And easy! Our designer and team of seamstresses would love to help you customize your gown too! Just visit http://sealedwithakissbridal.com/appointment to request an appointment!

Real Sealed With A Kiss Bride: Lisa and Aaron

Congratulations to Sealed With A Kiss bride Lisa and her new husband Aaron! These two tied the knot at Trump Winery on June 10, 2017.

19144103_10158852017005298_3497659459170030507_o

This wedding was particularly special to us because both the bride and groom are friends and fellow Charlottesville wedding vendors. We were so happy that Lisa came to us for help finding her dream dress.

Lisa chose a light gold ballgown with ivory lace from Lillian West for her big day. She looked gorgeous in it.

We know the future holds a lot of love and wonderful adventures for the Lisa and Aaron. We’re wishing them the very best!

Sheena chose a gorgeous design from Augusta Jones Bridal for her wedding day. It was not a design we usually have in store–she happened to schedule her appointment during a trunk show weekend, and she just fell in love with the dress the moment she put it on.
