Real Chamonix Bride in Wtoo Nori/Maelin Wedding Dress

There are some brides that when they come in with their bride squad, you instantly wish you could attend the wedding!  You can just feel the love, happiness and good energy surrounding the entire party!  This was one of those brides.  Rachel’s entire family lit up the shop with happiness the first time they walked in.  It was as if we were wedding gown shopping with old family friends.

We couldn’t find “the one” the first time around, so we invited everyone back for Wtoo Trunk Show that had a little more variety. Luckily, everyone came back with the same enthusiasm, good vibes and an open mind.  You see, Rachel had her heart set on a certain look- a fitted gown to show off her great figure.  She looked amazing in everything she tried! For fun we switched things up and put her in something that suited her personality more- a two piece corset and ballgown special piece just from the trunk show.

When she came out, her face and body language said it all.  THIS was her dress! The smile, the swagger, that “I never want to take this off” look in her eye is what we hope to see in every bride- it was that feeling of knowing you are the most beautiful woman in the room.


The subtle color on the Mealin Corset compliment her skin tone so well!

Those cascading flowers look so beautiful against the ruffles of the Nori Skirt!


Obsessed with this bouquet!

It’s so much fun learning all the little details our brides so creatively add into their weddings.  So seeing it come to life and watching more of that same love, happiness and fun we see in the bridal process is extra special.  We were literally over the moon when Rachel shared her entire day with us.

We knew her bridesmaids would match her inner sparkle in their Bari Jay antique bronze sequin gowns! This wedding at the State Room was everything we imagined from the details we heard: elegant, classy, fun, and full of fun!


Bari Jay Sequin bridesmaids in antique gold complimented the bride perfectly!
