Ahh! Just twenty five short days until V5! Y’all are going to flip!
Well hello, sweet readers! Kristin and I are back from quite the whirlwind trip to the Big Apple for Bridal Fashion Week, and boy do we have a lot to show you! We hope you enjoyed our Tweet/Insta coverage over the weekend, we sure loved sharing it with y’all!
While our amazing photographer, Kat Harris, works on the gorgeous images of fabulous gowns we thought it would be fun to do a little behind-the-scenes Instagram sneak peak! So grab yourself a cup of coffee and a bagel, and let’s head north to NYC!
Top to bottom and left to right: the fabulous New York skyline from our hotel window, Kristin and I snagging a cup of coffee before heading to our first show, we barely made it to the second show before changing into our flats (y’all, my Tieks were the perfect Market shoes – not a blister in site!), a little BTS of our hotel room during a late night work catch up session, our super sweet fruit gift from Miss Lara (thank you, L! We loved it!), after the shows we pulled on our yoga pants and tennis shoes and walked around the block for a bit of pizza to refuel! De-lish!, up and at ‘em for day two KNW and I donned our chicest black to weather the NYC chill, we stopped between shows for a little street style session with the super talented Kat Harris.
Top to bottom and left to right: Ridiculously gorgeous hand-painted run of show and iPhone cover by SW friend, Kristy Rice had us excited for the Claire Pettibone show, while going through our press packet for Romonoa Keveza we were thrilled to to see a little SW love, delicious snow cones at the Loverly Lounge – they’re even wedding cake flavored!.
One of the great things about Bridal Market is getting to see some of our favorite industry friends! Left to right and top to bottom: the amazing Summer Watkins from Grey Likes, the incredibly talented Kellee from Loverly, and former SW editor herself Miss Whitney Davis (you know what we say: once an SW girl, always an SW girl!).
And of course what you’ve been waiting for! Gorg-eous gowns, and lots of ‘em! We died over this hand beaded (in Birmingham, Alabama!) top from Southern girl Heidi Elnora, this subtle silver hue was the perfect something blue from JLM Couture, oh heavens, y’all – this bow from Heidi Elnora had our Southern hearts skipping a few beats, and this one-shoulder asymmetrical lace fit and flair was so major from Ines Di Santo.
I hope you enjoyed this little glimpse into our crazy weekend! Stay tuned because next week we’ll have lovely detail images from our fab photog Kat Harris. She even snuck backstage at a few shows to get some super fun BTS shots for y’all!
All images my iPhone, and with the help of sweet Kat!
