Town & Country Weddings

We love the feature on the Bridal Atelier and Atelier2 in the new issue of Town&Country Weddings! The entire issue is divine, as always T&C produced a beautiful book that is a must read for any style savvy bride. Thank you to Anna Reyes for your kind words and to Heidi Mitchell for including us.

We LOVE Marchesa! We have been dying to get our hands on their bridal collection and we are counting down the days until we see it at the upcoming NYC bridal market in October. In the mean time, we got a tease by going to see the Spring '10 ready to wear presentation yesterday. It was divine! The collection was shown at the Chelsea Museum and each piece was modeled on platforms in a maze like setting. Beautiful gauze drapes divided the maze and the celebrity filled crowd wandered through to view the pieces of the collection. We loved how the editors, buyers and celebs all mingled together. Below are some of my favorite pieces. I think they all could be interpreted beautifully into bridal!

The "Pre-Wedding" Wedding Party at Bloomies

After some Fashion Week stops, we made our way over to Bloomingdale's for their "Pre-Wedding" Wedding Party. Hannah Soule from Bloomingdale's put together a lovely and lively event with Martha Stewart Weddings, Monique Lhuillier, Slyvia Weinstock Cakes anf ThomJames Florals. Darcy Miller of Martha Stewart Weddings and Monique Lhuillier presented a Q&A for the attending engaged couples and friends and we had our favorite models Candy and Chandra modeling some gorgeous new Monique Lhuillier gowns. We were able to meet some brides who have visited us already and some newly engaged brides who will be shopping with us soon. Here are some pictures from the event!

A Great Day with Monique Lhuillier

We had a very busy, but fun filled day today to start fashion week and celebrate Fashion Night Out. First we stopped by the Monique Lhuillier Spring ready to wear presentation at Christie's Auction House. Monique was inspired by the intricate draping of the Masai Warriors and let me tell you the collection was fierce! Later on we joined Monique and Martha Stewart Editorial Director Darcy Miller at Bloomingdale's for a fabulous wedding event. More on the Bloomies event to come, but here are some pics from the Monique Lhuillier ready to wear show.
