Happy Wedding Wednesday! This week’s featured real Anne Barge bride is Melanie. She and Grant were married in one of our favorite parts of Northern California: Carmel! The ceremony was held at the Carmel Mission with the reception following at the Carmel Valley Ranch.

The bride is gorgeous and all smiles in the “Skye” gown from our Blue Willow Bride collection. The dress was found at Kinsley James Bridal in Walnut Creek, California. The stylists at Kinsley James accessories with a lovely belt from Something Treasured. We think Melanie looks beautiful!

The wedding day was expertly overseen by event planner Giulia Events. Christine Cater Weddings designed the florals and bouquets. As an alternative to wedding cake the couple chose to serve cupcakes from Sprinkles. (Yum!) Please enjoy these wonderful photographs captured by the talented Hazy Lane Studios.

First Look from Dad!

Congratulations Melanie & Grant!

We were thrilled when the French Wedding Style blog featured an Anne Barge bride’s wedding in Paris, France. We adore the ‘City of Lights’ and who doesn’t? We know you will love this wedding too!

Cami and Kevin were wed in Paris surrounded by a small gathering of family and close friends. The bride wore Anne Barge wedding dress style “Piper” with an Alencon lace bolero and silk satin sash accenting her waist. The bride also wore her Mother’s lace edged veil. Classic and elegant.

The wedding reception was held at one of Paris’ luxury hotels, the Plaza Athenee. The intimate dinner party was overseen by event designer Fete in France. Each guest received favors of delicious macaroons from patisserie Laduree.

Katie and Ryan are high school sweethearts. The couple’s friends and family were overjoyed when they heard of their engagement. The wedding took place in July at the Liberty House restaurant in Jersey City NJ.
The bride wore a French Alencon lace gown by Anne Barge with a keyhole back. To complete her bridal ensemble, Katie wore a tulle overskirt. This additional item gave the bride two distinct looks: full skirt for the ceremony and slim fitting gown for the reception celebrations!

Our featured wedding of the week is a resplendent affair from New York City. Lindsey and Marcus were married at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

The bride wore style “Fairfield” from the Anne Barge collection. Fairfield is a French Alencon lace sheath originally designed with a strapless neckline. For Lindsey, the neckline was customized to an off-the-shoulder neckline with long sheer sleeves. The classic silhouette perfectly highlighted Lindsey’s beauty and is reminiscent of style icon Grace Kelly. For her something blue, she chose Manolo Blahnik satin pumps to complete her bridal attire.

Ariston Weddings & Events created the florals for the celebration. The story of their union beautifully unfolds in photography from Weddings by Two.

Enjoy the Wedding Wednesday feature! xo

On this Wedding Wednesday, we are excited to share details from a wedding in Washington State.  The couple, Brooke and Louis, met while working at Seattle’s Children’s Hospital and attending medical school at the University of Washington. For their wedding location, they chose the beautiful setting of Bainbridge Island in the San Juan Island archipelago.

The bride wore Amherst from the Anne Barge collection. The Amherst wedding gown has an elongated bodice of shirred tulle with a strapless neckline and voluminous pick-up skirt. The romantic details of the gown’s design perfectly suited the natural beauty of the island…And the bride in the gown takes our breath away.

The bride and groom incorporated several DIY details to their special day. From hand-made invites to using the hydrangeas from their parent’s yard in the bouquets, no detail was not personalized by the couple. We know you will enjoy these images from their wedding day as much as we do!

Actress Grace Kelly is renown for her impeccable elegance and sense of fashion. Her marriage to Prince Rainier of Monaco solidified her legendary status as not only Hollywood’s princess but a style icon for generations.

Grace Kelly’s classic style inspired the “Grace” wedding gown by Anne Barge. The dress has a cummerbund waist just as Princess Grace’s and is trimmed in French Alencon lace at the empire bodice and hemline. We are honored to share a few photos of real brides who wore the Grace gown for their own fairytale weddings.
Timeless beauty always shines!

For this Wedding Wednesday we visit the Windy City of Chicago. This week’s featured wedding exuded traditional elegance in every way. Who doesn’t love a classic ballroom wedding…especially when it is at the Ritz Carlton!

The couple, Michael and Jodi, made all of the wedding decisions together. This included a ‘first look, no look’ before the ceremony was to take place. The anticipation of first seeing each other was made all the more present upon the bride’s walk down the aisle where the couple recited self-written vows beneath the chuppah.

For the reception, the grand ballroom of the Ritz Carlton Chicago was decorated in vibrant tones of purples and greens with stately touches of gold. A cocktail hour for guests allowed family to take portraits before joining the reception. The bride in her style 617 wedding gown by Anne Barge looked radiant on her special day. Photographer Julia Franzosa beautifully captured the love of the couple as they celebrated with their union surrounded by those dearest to them. We hope to share some of that special love through this post ~ Enjoy! xo

This week we are pleased to share with you a wedding in the sunshine state – Florida! Kayln and William were married at John’s Island Club in Vero Beach FL. This destination was chosen by the couple as the perfect escape for friends and family fighting the chill of Chicago. The soft palette of muted grey with hints of cream lends a romantic mood to their wedding and allows the natural beauty of Florida to shine.

The bride wore “Rosamund” by Anne Barge — A mermaid silhouette of French Alencon lace over silk satin faced organza with a strapless neckline and banded skirt and scalloped hem details. Gorgeous!

Enjoy these picture perfect images by the talented Amalie Orrange Photography… Happy Wedding Wednesday!

Congratulations to Kayln + William!
