Today we would love to tell you about a special wedding we planned on Lake Orta but most of all about bride’s special dress!
On a wonderful day of late August Anne and Alan tied the knot after two years planning. They fell in love with the place after a visit about years ago when we met.
Wonderful Anne is French from Paris and handsome Alan is from Ireland. They live in Ireland and they choose Orta for their special day because of its romanticism quaintness! In these two years Anne had a lovely baby boy and elder sister Mina grew up to be a wonderful flower girl together with other Anne’s girls.
During these months Anne studied all little details of the wedding focusing her attention side of the venue and other important issues, to her girls dresses, wedding dress, flowers and stationery.
Wonderful wedding stationery was studied and made by herself keeping in mind dreamy vintage Alice in Wonderland style.
Have a look to little sugared almonds favors box with Eat Me written on, to the menus and to the cake topper and to the names cards. Aren’t they just oneiric, vintage and natural? They perfectly match the location which is natural, romantic quaint and blooming.
But let’s have a look to Anne’s amazing wedding dress. We know that a wedding dress could be one of the most important detail for a bride. A bride could spend months finding the right one or it could be love at first sight just like for Anne was. The wedding dress perfectly matched her style. Anne chose famous Claire Pettibone as her stylist for the dress of her dreams.
The Washington Post hails Claire Pettibone’s collection as “proof positive that bridal fashion is keeping up with the runway”…
The Los Angeles Times calls her a “Style maven”… brides across the globe are enamored with the designer’s creations, just like Anne did and Say Yes to the Dress’s Randy Fenoli confirms, “Claire has a cult following.”
Ever since launching her eponymous brand with her husband Guy Toley in 1994 following graduation from Otis Parsons with a degree in fashion design, Claire Pettibone, the self-described “true romantic” has emerged as the designer for which romance takes on a vintage yet modern je ne sais quoi. Her talent for conjuring up such uncommonly beautiful and ethereal sensations is her trademark, and underlies the “world of Claire” – a fashion house that has grown from luxury lingerie to include couture bridal, fashion lingerie, and inspired casual wear. Claire’s signature style has also made her one of the top couture bridal gown designers in the world today.
“I have a very romantic vision,” says Claire Pettibone, “and I want a woman who wears my designs to feel indulged and feminine. I like to take her on a journey to another time and place, so when I create a collection, it always has an emotional, ethereal quality, and I think that’s what resonates with my clients.” And about Anne’s Lalique gown she adds: “The sinuous lines of the Art Nouveau movement are epitomized by the master jewelry designers Lalique, Vever and Fouquet. These artists incorporated natural motifs of flowers, vines and nature in their jewelry, which served as rich inspiration for the Lalique gown. Pure cotton voile and French embroidered tulle with silk flowers trailing down from the bodice are combined in an organic nod to nature’s beauty.”
Claire Pettibone has been the recipient of worldwide recognition and press, including being named the exclusive designer for “Married on MySpace’s” premiere season (her episode alone garnering more than one million views), and featured in TNT’s premiere season of “Wedding Day” produced by Mark Burnett.
You can find her wonderful dresses in many bridal boutique in USA, Canada, Europe and Asia. Find more about her following her on her web site.
