We're headed to New York for Bridal Fashion Week! Be sure to follow along to see all the fabulous runway shows, parties, bridal fashion trends, and of course all the newest wedding dresses coming to Little White Dress from all our incredible designers! We'll be posting it all on Instagram, with a live feed below. Don't miss the excitement!
Colorado is so versatile when it comes to weddings. With all the mountain weddings, barn weddings and hotel weddings that we know so well (and love so much!), it's refreshing to see some inspiration for a completely different style of wedding here in Colorado. This inspiration takes its cues from a lush, historic estate in Denver, incorporating a timeless yet modern look to a scene that could just as easily be right at home in New England as it is in Colorado. A simple and chic Charlie Brear draped-back gown and elegant Emmy London shoes are the perfect complement to organic greens and sophisticated garden styling.
We adore every element of this inspiration from many of Colorado's top wedding vendors, including Michele Hart Photography, Bluebird Productions, and Prema. Be sure to take a look at the end of the post for a full list of the wonderful vendors involved.

As we celebrate our one year anniversary this weekend ("we" being Kelly, Little White Dress' Director of Marketing, and my husband Josh), I figured I should FINALLY make time to share more from our wedding in Beaver Creek last fall. Better late than never, right? :)
Full disclosure: my mother is the wonderful, stylish, tirelessly driven Cate Malone, owner of Little White Dress. She and I both love weddings. A lot. When it came time to plan my own, it was a true labor of love to create something special and unique that still felt completely and utterly true to Josh and me. Thankfully, we had the help of the absolute best vendors and designers in the business. Trust me - I am fully aware of how lucky I am! I will be grateful for the rest of my life for what was truly the wedding of my dreams.
My fond memories of our wedding have only grown during the year since. Looking back, all Josh and I see and feel are our happiness, the love of our family and friends surrounding us, and the most perfect autumn mountain day.

Where to even begin with this drop-dead gorgeous styled shoot? We were so thrilled when Pink Diamond Events asked us to be a part of this amazing opportunity at Brush Creek Ranch, America's top rated ranch resort and an experience unto itself. Photographed by the wonderfully talented Lisa O'Dwyer, and with extraordinary contributions by some of the top wedding vendors in Colorado, this day was fantastic from start to finish. We had three different looks (and designer gowns, shoes, and accessories from Little White Dress) and access to the sprawling and scenic grounds of the luxury ranch. We started with the polished bohemian vibe shown here.
The perfect dress for this look? The beautiful Claire Pettibone 'Raven' gown in ivory, with a deep-V neckline and back, intricate floral embroidery, and a light-as-air feel. Paired with Emmy London shoes, and accessories by Twigs & Honey, Maria Elena, and Miriam Haskell, we'd say it's all just right for a sun-drenched, mid-summer, fresh-picked-wildflower celebration.
We cannot say enough about the talented vendors involved in this shoot (see the end for all the credits!) and the hospitality of the spectacular Brush Creek Ranch. For further proof of how incredible a venue Brush Creek Ranch is (just in case these photos aren't enough), this is where Allison Williams got married just this month!

Kristen and Austin's wedding at the Mining Exchange hotel in Colorado Springs is a modern-day fairytale, complete with a classic church ceremony, a vintage car, a gorgeous couple - and, oh, that dress. Let's talk about that dress for a minute. Kristen fell in love with her Galia Lahav Giselle gown during our first ever Galia Lahav trunk show, and no wonder - the drama of the skirt, the intricately embroidered lace, delicate sleeves, and an open back make this dress like no other. Not to mention that Kristen absolutely glows in the gown, which was literally made just for her. Topped off with earrings, hair accessories, a bracelet, and the Emmy London Cinderella shoes, all from Little White Dress, Kristen's look is the epitome of princess chic.
Congratulations to Kristen and Austin, and many thanks to Elevate Photography and Adam Fusion Films for the stunning photos and film! (Don't miss their sneak peek wedding film at the end of the post)!
