It is Wedding Wednesday! We love featuring real Anne Barge brides and this week is no exception. The couple were married in Atlanta at Ashton Gardens.
The wedding had a lot of charm beginning with the unique invitations. We bet that as soon as invited guests saw the sweet caricatures of the couple, they knew the day would be unique from other weddings they may have been to in the past.
Wedding invitation suite with charm and character!
The bride was a vision in Anne Barge style “Hayley” with an embellished sash added to accent the Alencon lace and silk organza silhouette. Her chosen “something blue” are an exquisitely beribboned pair of blue shoes!
The couple wanted a Southern wedding with a soft and romantic tone. This was achieved beautifully through blooms and bouquets by Wedding Designs. The soft palette of blush pink throughout lent a feminine touch to the affair.
Perfect Pink Bow Place Setting
And as with the invitations, carrying forth their unique personal touches, the bride incorporated her love of Hello Kitty with a precious cake topper we just adore!

It is Travel Tuesday and today we are thinking of pristine mountain air, crystal clear lakes, cowbells, and yodeling. Did you guess Switzerland?
If you are outdoorsy, Switzerland’s climate is ideal, with no excessive heat, cold or humidity and therefore it can be your playground for Honeymoons all year round. In Winter, ski the Swiss Alps and the Jungfrau ranges. In Summer, hike amongst the greenest hills imaginable. And the perfect way to relax after enjoying this country’s natural beauty? At a spa, of course – Swiss spas are world renowned!
Hiking in the Swiss Alps
City escapes in Switzerland have their own charm. Enjoy the cuisine, shopping, and culture in top-class cities from Bern to Geneva to Zurich.
One of our Anne Barge brides loved her wedding gown so much that she brought it on her Swiss Honeymoon! Can you think of a more unique idea? It was a fantastic way to extend her special day and create new memories. The bride found a local photographer and enjoyed looking beautiful another day in her gorgeous gown.

It is Wedding Wednesday ~ We admire those who serve in our military and the families who support them at home. This week we showcase a San Diego area bride whose groom is in the Navy.
A salute to the new Mr & Mrs.
Lighting of the unity candle
To tie in the groom’s Navy commitment, the bride and groom walked down the aisle together out of the church to the Pirates of the Caribbean theme song, “Skull and Crossbones”. Even the bride’s shoes had skulls on them!
Love these whimsical wedding shoes!
Hayley gown with Lanier Belt
The bride wore La Fleur collection gown: Hayley. A fit and flare silhouette designed in silk organza with Alencon lace. She accessorized with a vintage style russian net veil. The finishing touch was an Anne Barge silk satin ribbon sash at the waist. She is a beautiful military bride! And the groom in his military whites? Simply dashing.

Today we revisit a Connecticut wedding with beautiful images from Robert and Kathleen Photography.
The bride wore Anne Barge collection style Kelsey. This gown is designed with a sweetheart strapless neckline composed of a French Chantilly lace with details of a layered scalloped skirt.
We think the bride looks gorgeous! She is giddy with joy on her special day. What a fabulous moment to catch with her close friend…
The bride wore a custom Chantilly lace jacket which beautifully frames her classic upswept hairstyle. The addition of an embroidered belt at her waist adds a vintage touch to her ensemble. (Palmer Belt by Anne Barge).

During the Wedding Reception, serve a signature drink such as this colorful cocktail consisting of limoncello and prosecco with frozen raspberries. It looks festive and tastes refreshing!

It is Wedding Wednesday and the first week in June. We therefore wanted to feature a cheerful sunny wedding which was just perfect for SUMMER!!
Grand Hotel - Mackinac Island, Michigan
The couple was married at the beautiful and stately Grand Hotel on dreamy Mackinac Island in Michigan. The bride looked beautiful in one of our La Fleur collection gowns with pin tuck details and pockets. The wedding overall had a perfectly preppy element to the details.
We love the color scheme chosen by the couple for their Summer wedding. Sunny and cheerful Yellow with classic and elegant Navy. We adore the Mother of the Bride’s dress with its striping! And the bride’s “something blue” continued the Navy element with her sassy beribboned pumps.
LOVE the yellow stripe!
Plus the gentlemen in the wedding are ready for Summer in their attire: Seersucker for the ring bearer and Khaki suits for the Groom and Groomsmen!
