Get to know Little White Dress Bridal Stylist Talia! She shares her vision for her dream wedding, an intimate backyard affair with unexpected touches.
Little White Dress Bridal Stylist Talia
Talia says, In addition to being a Bridal Stylist at LWD, I’m also an artist at heart. Because of this, I am extremely attracted to whimsy, originality, and exquisite detail. It has always been my dream to have a small wedding in my backyard with my closest family and friends. The design aesthetic for my wedding is super feminine, upscale elements paired with streamlined, casual elements. Soft pastels paired with dark grays and blacks, leather with lace and chiffon, a sparkly clutch with brass knuckles. This dichotomy is perfect for the backyard setting: formal balanced by the informal. Yes, we are in my backyard, but I have made it a magical place!
Talia selected images that represent her inspiration for her feminine-yet-edgy intimate wedding:

We are excited to share the breathtaking images from a photo shoot collaboration that features gowns and accessories from Little White Dress Bridal Shop! The photo shoot was a collaboration by some of the most talented businesses in the Colorado wedding and event industry – including Artistry Events & Design, Cloud9 Weddings and Papers, and Frances Photography.
The concept behind the shoot is to showcase how art can be incorporated into the design of a wedding. We love how creative elements emphasize the beauty of the gowns and accessories in a way that is completely unique and absolutely stunning. With incredible paper backdrops, beautiful colored lights, and eye-catching props, this artistic shoot was unlike anything we’ve ever been a part of!
The owner of Little White Dress Bridal Shop is Cate Malone, bridal stylist extraordinaire! We asked Cate to share with our readers her top wedding dress picks this summer. Here is a list of Cate’s favorite designer wedding gowns that you can find right here in Denver at Little White Dress Bridal Shop.
St. Pucchi: I love this most adorable dress ever by St. Pucchi (#Z350)! Made with a combination of extravagant Guipure and Alencon lace motifs and adorned with organza bows, it’s so perfect as your rehearsal dinner dress, reception dress, or morning after wedding day brunch dress! Absolutely adorable! The floor length version of this same dress is also available at LWD!

Badgley Mischka: The “Melody” gown by Badgley Mischka features a draped bodice of pearl silk charmeuse and a narrow A-line skirt of laser cut hearts. The movement of the skirt is so fun and beautiful, and I love the layers and layers of little hearts!

Rivini. The “Catalina” dress by Rivini features an asymmetrical draping of various English tulles to sculpt the bodice and flares out in voluminous layers of organza. It’s light, simple, sophisticated and oh-so-flattering too!

Claire Pettibone: Just arrived! Claire Pettibone’s “Toulouse” gown features ivory embroidery lined in platinum silk with a deep sweetheart neckline, silk ribbons and bows, and silver flowers. I LOVE the beautiful lace pattern and the hanging ribbons – such a romantic touch!
Little White Dress Bridal Shop will be hosting its annual wedding dress sample sale from July 1-31, 2012. This July, there are more couture gowns, more high-end dress designers and more dresses available than ever before at a fraction of their original price. All sample sale gowns available are priced at $999.00 or lower (originally priced at $1,300-$5,500!).
Our best FIVE tips to having a successful sample sale shopping experience with us:
Book Early. Appointments are required, so you’ll want to book early to get the best selection. We are accepting appointments now. Call 303-814-8972 to make yours.
Be Open Minded. Sample sale shopping can take a lot of brides out of their comfort zones. Truly look at every individual dress and be daring by trying on various designers and styles. Your bridal stylist will help match your style, personality, and figure to various dresses that you may not have previously considered!
Consider Alterations. Our sample sale gowns are available in sizes 8-16. Try on all sizes because most gowns can be altered to fit your body with precision.
Be Ready to Buy. Our sample sale gowns go fast. If you love it, buy it. We cannot hold dresses. Last year a bride went home to “think it over” and returned the next day and the gown she loved was gone because another bride had already purchased it. Bring anyone whose opinion is important to you with you.
Get Excited. Most of our sample sale gowns are couture gowns that are high-quality, well-made and well-designed. We’ll have gowns by Manuel Mota, Cotin Sposa, Justin Alexander, Sassi Holford, Justina McCaffrey, Badgley Mischka, Matthew Christopher and more. Our dresses are designed to make you a stand-out bride in your most amazing wedding gown ever!
