Amsale – Our Latest Obsession

Have we mentioned lately how thrilled we are to officially carry Amsale bridal gowns? These gowns are classic bridal meets modern sophistication to us.  The designer Amsale Aberra started her career when she was getting married and realized wedding gowns were overly designed.

Since then, she has captured elegant simplicity in her designs and presented them in a polished tone by utilizing only the most luxurious textiles.

“I want a bride to be thrilled with her wedding-day look for years to come, because her dress has a timeless beauty that reflects her true essence,” says Amsale. Well, we couldn’t’ agree more Amsale!

We were thrilled to be apart of this experience by loaning this gorgeous powder blue Reem Acra gown for Colleen to wear. She looked effortlessly whimsical and romantic as Justin become her real life fiancé.

So many people have had nothing but wonderful things about our Bridal Fashion event on January 29th at The Vault in downtown Tampa!  We are THRILLED at the success.

MMD EVENTS:

These rad folks crushed the decor and design of this space like none other. I wish I had a before and after of the spaces they created. Originally, we had decided to do the cocktail hour outside. However, the one day it decided to rain the entire winter, was the day of our event. So inside we went!  Little did I know, the indoor space was a construction zone. Literally. We were sweeping up nails and uncovering windows the day of the event. I called Amanda, the owner of MMD Events, stressing just a little (to say the least).  She wasn’t even worried about it. She quickly changed a bit of the design (the […]

New Accessory Line – Untamed Petals by Amanda Judge!

Oh how we love some extra sparkle this time of year! When our newest accessory line, Untamed Petals by Amanda Judge arrived this week, it felt like Christmas came early.

These headpieces and sashes are a refreshing mix of boho charm meets classic bridal elegance. Plus, we are kind of girl crushing on the designer. Amanda Judge was working in sales and marketing when she realized she needed a creative outlet. So she made some headpieces for fun and put them on Etsy. Fast forward three years and Untamed Petals is now one of the top selling bridal accessories in the industry!

We couldn’t be happier Amanda Judge took a chance years ago on her passion project as we are so excited to share with you all these pretty polishing peices.

The Pink Bridal Shop on Kennedy

We’ve become to be known as “the pink bridal shop on Kennedy” and we must admit, we don’t hate that. We hear many brides describe how they drive or walk past our little boutique often and finally they get to see what it looks like inside.

Well, we’d love for everyone to take a peak inside! We had the pleasure of the talented Esther Louise visiting us to snap some stellar shots of our bridal oasis and now we’d like to share a little bit of what that pink bridal shop on Kennedy has inside…
