The past week has been a flurry of wedding planning and styling fun at The Stylish Soiree, and I’m excited to finally have a moment to sit down and share it in a post. First, the ridiculously talented Meg Perotti, photographer extraordinaire, has hired me and honored me with planning her Northern California wedding in November 2010. Meg has a killer eye for style and also loves the romantic, vintage wedding look that echoes my own wedding planning aesthetic, so it’s been rather like a bridal match made in heaven for me. I accompanied her last week on a wedding dress shopping trip with visions of feminine, floaty dresses in our heads that would compliment her “Pride and Prejudice” meets “Anthropologie” style wedding.
On our hunt through some of the best hidden places in Los Angeles for finding the perfect wedding dress, Meg tried on everything from frothy a-line tulle confections to beaded lace wedding gowns with cap sleeves, and found the one. “The One” not only fit the theme of the wedding to a T, it also fit and flattered Meg perfectly – seriously, it looked ten times better on her than it did on the mannequin. I’m under strict instructions not to divulge details of “The One”, but I’ve included Meg’s wedding dress inspiration board above to give you a taste of the style we were searching for. I’m so excited to continue planning her wedding, and can’t wait to see the elaborate vision we have come to life in November up in the Marin Headlands (just outside of San Francisco) – gorgeous venue, gorgeous bride, gorgeous style – how did I get so lucky?!
This Friday I’m styling another bride (Sara, who is having a modern Palm Springs wedding in March) for her engagement shoot this weekend with OC-based wedding photographers Allison & Kyle of Studio 28. I’m bringing my camera and fully intend to blog about it asap, as well as tips on wedding dress shopping and engagement shoot style – so stay tuned!
