Sydney and Fred were married this past October in Boothbay Harbor Maine. Sydney chose a beautiful ivory alecone lace and silk organza trumpet gown by Tara Keely. The sweetheart corset bodice with a scalloped neckline nicely complimented Sydney’s petite frame and the chapel train was perfect for their romantic church wedding. We love how Sydney completed her look and showed off her personality with a pop of color in her shoes.
Congratulations to Sydney and Fred, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day! Also, a big thank you to Chris Bennett Photographer for the stunning photos!
Jennifer came to Bella looking for an elegant gown that would suit her family oriented wedding. She knew that she wanted a slimmer silhouette that was not a traditional ballgown. We helped her pick out a beautiful Jim Hjelm gown that was her vision come to life. Jennifer’s champagne silk gown with ivory lace overlay complimented her complexion beautifully. Wanting some coverage for her October nuptials, the 3/4 length sleeves were perfect, yet the keyhole back added a sexy surprise. Jennifer completed the look with a designer hand beaded belt.
Congratulations to Jennifer and David!
Jil has a relaxed, artistic aura about her and wanted her wedding to have a very creative flair with handmade centerpieces, pops of color, and playful accents. She loved her gown shopping experience and she was very excited about her Marisa gown. She was attracted to the antique color, the details and pattern of the lace and the way the dress flattered her shape. Jil looked stunning on her wedding day and all her creative touches came together wonderfully.
Congratulations to Jil and Tom and a big thank you to Derek Gilbert Photography for these great images!
When Melisa arrived at Bella, she had already chosen her lace bridesmaid’s dresses and was searching for a gown that would compliment her girls. She also knew she wanted a flared skirt and a soft dress that would show off her feminine shape. We helped her choose a beautiful re-embroidered Pronovias gown featuring a sweetheart neckline, delicate filigree straps and tiered skirt with scalloped lace detail. Melisa completed her vision with a beautiful fingertip lace edged veil.
Congratulations to Melisa and Michael and a grateful thank you to Zev Fisher Photography for the amazing images of their Willowdale Estate wedding.
Michelle came to us looking for a gown that would be soft and romantic. Her wedding vision incorporated many natural aspects such as a barn venue, burlap, and moss details. After trying on a variety of styles, Michelle found a Pronovias gown that was everything she was looking for. The lace and filigree detail on the neckline spoke to the romantic look Michelle wanted. We completed her bridal style with a long tulle veil that she added to her floral crown on the wedding day.
Congratulations to Michelle and Luke and a big thank you to Ruth Eileen Photography for these amazing photos!
Every Spring and Fall we travel to New York City to attend bridal runway shows and view the latest collections from top designers such as Hayley Paige, Ian Stuart, Jim Hjelm, and Claire Pettibone. We took a few shots from our trip and wanted to share some highlights from these great new collections.
Melissa always dreamed of wearing a Claire Pettibone gown on her wedding day. We were so happy to help her dreams come true! Melissa came to one of our Claire Pettibone Trunk Show’s and tried on multiple silhouettes and fell in love with this stunning Primrose gown. The finishing touch was her mother’s veil matched the gown beautifully! With a sketch to the designer and a few custom changes to the neckline, this gown became perfect for Melissa and Steve’s wedding this past August.
Here are a few images from Melissa and Steve’s special day. A big thanks to Matt and Liz at Hinkely Photo for these great shots!
Elizabeth and Greg were married this past August in Newburyport, MA with their reception at the Hellenic Center in Ipswich, MA. Elizabeth came to us looking for a light, airy and unique gown. After trying on many styles and silhouettes, Elizabeth found herself drawn to a Pronovias silk chiffon gown with an incredible jeweled back strap. Elizabeth fell in love with this back detail and knew it would be the perfect gown for her wedding day.
Congratulations to Elizabeth and Greg and many thanks to Eric McCallister Photography for these beautiful photos of their special day.
