Meet Abbey

Meet Abbey.

You know those people you work with who are a light every time you see them? Well, that sums up Abbey and her mom. We wish they could have stayed around the shop forever (we’re hoping the pop in for a visit soon), so, we’re extra grateful for the few months that let us get to know them and let us be a part of Abbey’s wedding.

The bride wore a custom Augusta Jones modest wedding dress.

Happy Labor Day and may you savor the last days of Summer.

Of the many fabulous trends happening in bridal-land right now, it’s no secret we’re loving the trend of long sleeves on bridal gowns. They seems to fit in any time of year (think of the groom in a suit – long sleeves are timeless), yet have a special mark for winter weddings.

Classic. Timeless. Stylish. And, quite actually, figure flattering.

Here are a few of our brides who donned long sleeves with beautiful success.
