    We are back with another fun edition of TWD’s Bride of the Month!  This month we are featuring Felicia.  Though it was one of the hottest days in June, Felicia rocked it out and was such a beautiful bride!  Felicia’s dress, a classic lace trumpet with a beaded belt for just a touch of sparkle, was a great fit for her.  We loved looking through the photos of the fun-loving couple, from the first look to the reception.  We know you will enjoy them too!  Before we start, we must recognize Brooke Foorman Photography for the fantastic photos.  Now let’s get started with Felicia and Eric’s love story…

    It is with lots of love that we introduce you to our next Bride of the Month!  Rachael is TWD-ette Marissa’s sister and her wedding dress journey was filled with lots of fun with every visit!  Her time at TWD began long before she even was engaged, helping us with large events and stopping by to say hello and visit the dresses!   After we found out about her engagement, we were super excited to figure out which dress she would choose – and she chose a beautiful, beautiful gown…which was made even more beautiful by her wearing it!  We can’t wait to show you her ah-mazing wedding photos, shot by the so-talented Margaret Newton Photography.  So, let’s begin!

    This month we are featuring one of our wonderful brides, Danielle.  Every time Danielle visited The White Dress, she was filled with lots of positive energy – and her dress search was extra fun as her dress was a sample gown in our store!  As we say, we are always happy when our sample gown has a good home to go to.  Before we go into Danielle’s feature, I must say – you are in for a treat!  This wedding is filled with beautiful details and gorgeous photography by Tim Kamppinen Photography.  Without further ado, we introduce you to the love story of Danielle and Andy…

    We are back with another lovely TWD Bride, Ashleigh!  And this time we are going to mix things up a little bit.  Instead of showing off her beautiful wedding photos, we are going to showcase Ashleigh’s beautiful wedding video.  {It’s a nice change, no?}  Before we begin though, one of the things we remember most about Ashleigh is that she had her hair and makeup styled by Shine Salon which, if you have ever been to TWD, you know that this adorable little salon is located in the same building as TWD!  We remember seeing her on her wedding day and were able to give her a hug and well wishes just before she got married!  {And let us say, that was such a fun treat!  It is rare when we get to see our brides on their actual wedding day!}  Now, it is time to read all about Ashleigh and Matt’s big day in this edition of Bride of the Month:

    Welcome to this month’s edition of Bride of the Month!  We are excited to share with you another beautiful wedding from another beautiful TWD bride!  Sarah married her love, Camron, on a lovely summer day.  (Don’t you love when the weather cooperates?!)  Anyway, long before the actual beautiful day you are about to see, Sarah visited TWD.  We remember her visit because she looked stunning in dress after dress.  (She had quite a challenging decision on her hands!)  But we still remember when she tried on her actual dress – it was like the dress was made for her!  You will soon see for yourself just how lovely Sarah looked in her dress on her wedding day, so let’s commence!  Oh, and we can’t forget to give credit where it’s due – all images below are from Eileen Cote Photography.

    What can we say about this beautiful wedding that you are about to see?  Filled with love.  A beautiful and beaming bride.  A happy and handsome groom.   Filled with tons of little details.  SUCH a beautiful setting.  Happiness just shines through these gorgeous photos and we couldn’t be happier to show you all the beauty that is Elizabeth and Trevor’s wedding.  Sigh, this is what weddings are all about – making it your own, enjoying every moment, and love, love, love!  Elizabeth was the sweetest bride and we remember her very first visit to TWD when she was so surprised to find her dress!  Her mother and sisters were so sweet, and tears were shed by all once Elizabeth donned her beautiful dress.  The experience was made even sweeter when the headpiece worn by her grandmother was hand-delivered to the shop by her Dad in that very same appointment – it was a  perfect match for Elizabeth and really complimented the dress she fell in love with.  Ok, I am sure we could continue our swooning and adoration of Elizabeth and this gorgeous wedding, but why don’t we just let you see how beautiful it was for yourself.  As such, let’s commence this month’s Bride of the Month!  Oh, and we must give credit to the fabulous gal who captured these photos – Kristeen Marie Photography.

    Are you ready for a dash of patriotism and a wedding full of sentimental touches?  We certainly are!  Our latest Bride of the Month, Melissa, was married last Spring to the love of her life, Jesse.  Jesse, a military man, wore his dress blues for the wedding, and – dare we say it – looked just dashing!  We enjoyed working with Melissa on her wedding dress journey – and even though we had only known Melissa for the length of her first appointment at TWD, it was almost like her dress chose her – the dress just seemed to fit her personality!)  And of course, every time she wore her gown, she just glowed!  So, without further ado, let’s showcase this lovely wedding!  (All photos below were taken by Anderson Studios.)

    Can we just say how excited we are for our next Bride of the Month?!  The lovely and oh-so bubbly Emma visited TWD almost two years ago on the search for her perfect dress, and find it she did!  Her beautiful Liz Fields tulle gown was light-weight and had just enough whimsy to match Emma’s personality perfectly!  We had such a fun time with Emma each time she visited TWD – she even came back for a Real TWD Bride Fashion Show so she could wear her lovely dress again!  Her wedding was a lovely affair, and we just can’t wait to share it with you.  So, let us get started.  Oh, and before we forget to mention it, all the photos below were taken by Dick’s Studio of Ithaca.

    Are you ready for another TWD Bride of the Month?  We sure are – so let us introduce you to Lindsay!  When Lindsay first visited The White Dress, she came with a large entourage filled with wonderful friends and family – it was a super fun appointment in which she said yes to her fabulous sparkly, ruffly, and all-girly gown!  We also got the opportunity to outfit her bridesmaids, who wore all different dresses by Alfred Sung in the same color and fabric.  (Love showcasing each girl’s personality and style, don’t you?!)  It was always a fun time when Lindsay came to The White Dress, so we were super excited when she came back a few months ago with one of her recently engaged friends.  Lindsay is proof that when you become a TWD bride, you are always welcome back at The White Dress!  Ok, let’s get this feature started!  (Please note that all images are by Timeless Expressions Photography.)

    Jamie visited our shop many moons ago and was married last summer to her love, Andrew.  In fact, it has been such a long time from when we first met her, when she came back with her friend {a new TWD bride} a few months ago, we found out she had a little bun in the oven!  Congratulations to Jamie and Andrew on their soon-to-be new little one…and on their marriage, which we can’t wait to share with you – starting now!

    Welcome to another installment of TWD’s Bride of the Month. This time we are featuring the wonderful wedding of Katie and Tim! We remember when Katie came into our shop (well over a year ago now) to try on gowns – she was between two dresses that were extremely different in style, and ended up with a gorgeous lace ballgown! (As a side note, we think she made the best choice!) We also had the pleasure to work with Katie and her bridesmaids who wore a lovely pop of yellow to compliment the military blues worn by the groom. And we always give credit where credit is due – all the photos below are compliments of Christinas Photography. So now, without further ado…let’s commence this month’s BOTM!

    We are back with another installment featuring one of TWD’s beautiful brides – Katie!  (Did we ever say how much we love our jobs?  Who wouldn’t want to swoon over gorgeous wedding photos?  And the best part is that we have had such a long term relationship with each and every bride that we feature, that seeing the wedding photos make us a little teary eyed.)  And I digress again…

    Now back to our Bride of the Month.  We met the very lovely Katie in one of our first months of being open!  She worked with one of TWD’s very talented bridal style experts, Aleksandra.  In her words…

    So full disclosure.  As I am sure you have figured out, how can we possibly have a Bride of the Month when we have barely been open yet?  (We can’t fool you, smarty pants.)  Well, it’s true.  Our very first Bride of the Month didn’t get her dress at The White Dress.  But, that doesn’t make her any less fabulous (as you will soon see).  And Christine graciously decided to give us a hand by showing all of you just what being Bride of the Month means.  Thank you Christine!

    And one last very important note.  All photographs, unless otherwise noted, are by Kai Heeringa Photography based out of Grand Rapids, Michigan.  (And as you will see, Kai and Kayley are jaw dropping ah. maz. ing.)
