Bay 7 Wedding | Durham Bridal Salon and Wedding Florist

Kate and Marty had exquisite tastes and were just an all around great couple to collaborate with for their wedding day! Since our salon is sort of a one stop shop, we had the huge honor of serving Kate in both wedding flowers and helping her find her dream wedding gown. With two different looks in mind, Kate was sure to stun them all.

Kate chose the elegant Georgia gown custom made by one of our favorite designers, Modern Trousseau. Our seamstress, Diane, used the lace sent by Modern Trousseau (it was the same lace used on the Georgia) and hand sewn the custom fitted bolero topped with the sweetest of bows laid perfectly in the back. The genius behind this is that after the ceremony, you are free to take off the bolero and wow your guests for another classic strapless look at the reception. How sweet is that?!

For Kate and Martys wedding reception we focused on classic floral elements, like the beautiful and lush hydrangea that were spotted at every table, along with curly willow that graced and pushed the height of our vertical and tall vases, and strands of clear jeweled crystals that hung delicately from each of our large centerpieces. The bridal and bridesmaid bouquets paired so nicely against the gowns because their tone was complimentary and in the same palette, ravishing in smell, and lush in the best florals our store could recommend. We adored this wedding!

Fearrington Village Wedding | Modern Trousseau Gown

Toni was such a sweet soul, we could tell instantly once she walked in to our downtown Durham bridal salon that she had the best of hearts. She had such a classic way about her, we wanted to make sure that the gown of her dreams reflected her perfectly. One of our favorite designers, Modern Trousseau, came through and wowed not only her but her entire family!

The gown of choice, the Virginia gown, an elegant French lace gown with an A-line skirt and V-neckline (originally), looked absolutely breathtaking on Toni. The French Aloncon lace appliques are embroidered onto a tulle skirt and it just made for the classiest of gowns. Not only is Modern Trousseau one of our favorites due to their exquisiteness and beauty of lace, all of their gowns are custom made–we take about twenty measurements and Modern Trousseau creates a gown that fits perfectly on each lady.

With this in mind, we knew we could go the extra mile with the Virginia dress and really give Toni everything that she had hoped for. Instead of the deep v-neck, we collaborated with Modern Trousseau and created a strapless sweetheart neckline. These are the details that we really adore and how amazing is it that this dress was constructed for one lady only? So sweet!
