Carnegie Music Hall Wedding

For more than a century, Carnegie Hall has been known to audiences and performers alike as one of the world’s greatest concert halls. So talk about a “wow factor” when the guests of Nina and TJ walked onto the grounds of such a historic venue.  We had so much fun helping Nina customize her dress through […]

For more than a century, Carnegie Hall has been known to audiences and performers alike as one of the world’s greatest concert halls. So talk about a “wow factor” when the guests of Nina and TJ walked onto the grounds of such a historic venue.  We had so much fun helping Nina customize her dress through Modern Trousseau. The clean, classic gown was the perfect complement to the architecture of the building. She added a Whitney Alyssa sash that accented and personalized the look. We are so excited to share these amazing photos taken by Kelly Lester.

Enjoy!

Friday Find: Invitation Inspiration

We just adore coming across new artists who inspire us. And these invitation suites did just that. Each hand painted, each truly a piece of art. Here is a blurb from the designer herself. “Mix color, whimsy, and femininity – and that’s where you’ll always find me. On most days, my desk will have a […]

We just adore coming across new artists who inspire us. And these invitation suites did just that. Each hand painted, each truly a piece of art. Here is a blurb from the designer herself.

“Mix color, whimsy, and femininity – and that’s where you’ll always find me. On most days, my desk will have a simple vase of fresh flowers, a tear-sheet from Kate Spade’s latest collection, and perhaps a classic quote from Coco Chanel…add a snippet of double faced satin in a rich, bold red or pink and I’m a happy girl. I love drawing on all this beauty to creating my own unique lovelies and I’m proud to say it’s been my dream job for thirty years.”

You can check out her gorgeous work through her Etsy shop.

What is better than real wedding photos from our brides? Photos that have sweet notes like these attached : ) They remind us of how much we love what we do -

Hi,

I picked up my preserved gown this week, and didn’t expect it to be so
emotional leaving Hayden Olivia for the very last time. Your boutique
is an absolute treasure. Every single interaction with you was classy,
helpful, fun, and beautiful. Truly, my dress was the first I tried on,
and your staff was helpful and patient while I convinced myself (over
2 more visits!) that it was perfect!
Every time I came back for fittings or called with a question your
staff was kind and, although I know you have hundreds of brides,
seemed genuinely excited about my gown and upcoming wedding. My mother
and I have agreed many times that out of all the wonderful pieces of
the wedding planning process, Hayden Olivia was the most wonderful.
Thank you for that!

The very best,
Ellen

Ellen, you looked absolutely flawless in your custom Modern Trousseau wedding gown! We wish you a marriage as beautiful as your wedding day.

Thought for the Day

Sometimes we just need a little reminder in the form of a simple statement. During the rush of the holiday season, it is important to stop and realize what we have in life. Happy Friday!

A Whitewater Wedding

“What an amazing, high-adventure, fun-filled wedding day!! Hadley married Adrien and the crowd got quite a show. Hadley is a fearless, ER doctor so adventure comes with the territory. This girl knows exactly what she wants and goes after it! So, she became the first bride at The Whitewater Center to both zipline and mountain bike […]

“What an amazing, high-adventure, fun-filled wedding day!! Hadley married Adrien and the crowd got quite a show. Hadley is a fearless, ER doctor so adventure comes with the territory. This girl knows exactly what she wants and goes after it! So, she became the first bride at The Whitewater Center to both zipline and mountain bike on her wedding day.  She met Adrien on a mountain bike trip years ago and the adventures haven’t stopped yet for this couple! The guests loved watching them whiz by AND the surprise fireworks show at the end of the night was a special treat.” -words from the photographer, Julie at Old South Studios

We couldn’t have put it better ourselves! This wedding was nothing short of spectacular. Hadley chose a custom lace Modern Trousseau gown with a beautiful keyhole back. She paired it with a matching fingertip length veil that was just perfect for her outdoor affair. We could say more, but we know you are dying to scroll through these photos! Enjoy!
