New Arrivals from Jim Hjelm Blush Collection! Fall 2011


We just had two beautiful arrivals in the store yesterday! Jim Hjelm Blush styles #1150 at top, a lovely silky taffeta halter gown with a stunning open back. And #1151 below, a Mikado modified a-line gown. Both feature a feminine jeweled flower at the waist.

Thank you to The Wedding Co. for covering the Jim Hjelm show last April and capturing the last four images above.

Real Bride: Valerie in Stephanie James Couture


We have to admit – we are so in love with this dress by Stephanie James Couture – the Doris gown was worn beautifully by Valerie, who was one of our very first appointments during our 2010 trunk show with Stephanie. Valerie chose to customize her dress by adding a soft gray underlay beneath the lace waist panel – a perfect compliment to her handsome groom’s suit. Also a custom lace bolero topped off the the ensemble.

Valerie, you look lovely! Congrats on your wedding and thank you for letting us be a part of your day!

As Seen In: Weddingbells Magazine!

We were thrilled to see two wonderful features in the latest issue of Weddingbells magazine on newstands now. First – one of our lovely brides – Jennifer (who is also an art director at the magazine) chose the “Sarah” gown by designer Coren Moore for her destination wedding in Sonoma Valley, California. I adore how Jennifer accessorized her gown and truly made it her own – what a fabulous necklace!

We were also fortunate to have the Hasell Street gown by Carol Hannah featured in one of the editorial spreads as well (thank you Nicole!). This gown is one of my absolute favourites in the store – the sweet floral embroidery make this dress a showstopper for a garden or farm wedding.


Weddingbells is on newstands now – make sure you get your copy!
