Meredith Sweet

I featured Meredith & Justin’s cute picnic engagement session a while back so it’s only fitting that I also share their wedding…especially as it turned out as pretty as this – hello…?A tea length textured dress with pockets! Meredith’s dress came from Melissa Sweet and is called Fiesole. It’s a silk strapless tea-length dress with all over horizontal net embellishment and bow at waist and is quite frankly perfect for her. Wow so jealous! hehe

Perfectly Sweet

Carnival weddings always make me smile. Jenna & Tommy’s wedding is no different.

I thought I’d share another wedding with you that I did this summer. The bride’s last name was Morrissey which made me instantly think of The Smiths (one of my most favorite bands ever). Jenna and Tommy were married in Providence, RI in Roger Williams Park. Their inspiration was that of a 1950’s carnival complete with carousel, penny candy and popcorn. The bride stole away during the reception to change into a pink vintage dress to surprise her new husband. Their first dance? “There is a Light That Never Goes Out” by The Smiths. Perfectly sweet.

Under the Spotlight – Whirlingturban

Have you been dreaming about a gorgeous vintage style gown but have been afraid of the potentially massive price tag? Well Katherine Robinson of Whirlingturban has the answer!

From a career in Hollywood making glamorous outfits for superstars, Katherine relocated to Bali (!) 8 years ago where she designs and makes vintage reproduction dresses.  Her stunning ready made creations for example start at just $400 in her wedding boutique and for a completely custom dress you’d be looking at prices from only $800. As everything is done online she will even ship out a loaner dress to you to make sure the cut and fit are perfect before she makes your dress.

One if their most popular dresses is the beeeautiful Wing Bust Dress.

Whirlingturban has a plethora of accent colour choices and you can even supply your own fabric if you have something more specific in mind.
