Blush by Hayley Paige Spring 2015 Trunk Show!

Hayley Paige, head designer of the Blush and Hayley Paige bridal collections, made a jump start in fashion by interning for Nina Garcia at Elle magazine while attending Cornell University. She went on to work in ready-to-wear for Jill Stuart after receiving honorary attention for her 10-piece bridal collection shown during her graduating year. Eventually, her dedication to all things creative led to designing and styling abroad where she developed an appreciation for European influences.

Ever so eclectic, her designs capture a romantic and charming aesthetic that balances inner ingénue and sophistication. Her interpretation of worldly influences and desire to dress hopeful romantics, have provided a foundation for a fanciful and fresh take on bridal wear. Never taking herself too seriously and fully embracing the adorning history of the bridal industry, Hayley Paige develops her craft from an inspirational place of appreciation and enjoyment.

We cannot wait to have these new beauties visit us this weekend! Give us a ring to schedule your appointment – they are booking up quickly! ***Please note, these dresses will be runway sample sizes

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.

Alluring contrasts are glimpsed in pairings like twinkle and matte, giving each dress an unmistakable charisma that enhances the bride’s own captivating charm. Balance is found in the union of textured details such as hand appliquéd lace and flutters of sheer fabric, evoking a feeling of whimsical refinement.

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.

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!

Modern Concord Barn Wedding

We’ve all seen our fair share of barn weddings, but somehow they just never seem to get old! Even so, we completely love it when a couple pushes those standard “barn boundaries” and crafts a day that is not only super unique, but super them! Cameron and Matt had a small, intimate wedding in Concord, North […]

We’ve all seen our fair share of barn weddings, but somehow they just never seem to get old! Even so, we completely love it when a couple pushes those standard “barn boundaries” and crafts a day that is not only super unique, but super them! Cameron and Matt had a small, intimate wedding in Concord, North Carolina. The bride decided to wear a short wedding gown custom made by Modern Trousseau. For the ceremony she paired the mini with stunning heels, but for the reception switched into her favorite pair of cowboy boots. The love between these two love birds is pretty obvious, and we are so honored to have been a part of their big day.
