Long Wait! But SO worth it!

Meet Lindsey, she came into Bella last summer with an an amazing vision.  These pictures are only a sampling of her vision coming to life and they are absolutely gorgeous! She chose various LulaKate styles in Vanilla, Almond and Pearl dupioni - she accessorized with Made by Stella jewelry and 2 girls wore flutter sashes by Nelle.

Emily & Jack

If you've been to Bella recently you may recognize Emily.  She has been working here on weekends and has been such a great addition to my one man team.  I met Emily originally because her husband Jack is a friend from college, so shortly after he proposed Emily came in to pick out dresses. She chose mix & match LulaKate styles with a full skirt in black dupioni silk and they looked fabulous!

And as we say in the South, "Bless her heart", poor Emily broke her foot a few weeks before the wedding so she was stuck wearing a boot on her wedding day. Of course it didn't stop her from making the most of her special day.

I'm sure you can tell from these pictures - Emily is full of joy!  Bella is lucky to have such a genuine girl like her! Congrats Emily!

Tisk Tisk

I know, I know. I am beyond overdue for a post.  Please accept my apology with a double post.

First bride, meet Amy.  She is a school teacher and a fellow teacher/ sorority sister of mine was so kind to refer her to me. As I've said before, I love a bride with a vision.  Amy had a vision and it was a certain shade of purple and LulaKate Aubergine satin was the perfect purple.  She chose a strapless dress with a full skirt for her maids. From the pictures, they had beautiful Indiana Fall weather for their wedding. Congrats Amy!

Love the orange bouquets!
Now give me sassy! 

Next bride, meet Sarah.  Little did we know when we were working together that we had a mutual friend - my good friend Mary at G.Thrapp Jewelers who helped Sarah's fiance with her ring.  Sarah said "I Do" at her lake house on Lake Wawasee.  Her pictures are phenomenal - photographer Carpenter Photo & Design. I went through the entire album and it looked like a party you would NOT want to miss. Her maids were simply stunning in their one shoulder Priscilla of Boston dresses and Sarah dazzled in her Jim Hjelm wedding dress.
I'll quit rambling and let you see.

Ok, am I forgiven??

Little Black Dress

I love this new Priscilla of Boston dress (style VY1515).  It looks great on the hanger and fantastic on! I had an appointment over the weekend and the bridesmaid was seriously trying to get me to sell it to her off the rack so she could wear to an event next weekend. It is sharp!

It's Amore - Part One

Flashback to 2001, I'm en route to Italy for a few weeks to study Art History. Gosh, I love College, did I really get credit for that? Anyway, the group of girls on the trip were fabulous.  During our time abroad, I became fast friends with a girl named Kasey.  We stayed friends through college but lost touch after school.  Earlier this year we re-connected in Indianapolis and have picked up right where we left off.  She is truly one of the most genuine people I know and I am blessed to have her friendship!

There is a reason, I'm telling you all this.  I'll get to the point.  So while we were in Rome at the Trevi fountain, you can throw 1,2, or 3 coins. One Coin: You will return to Italy, Two Coins: Will lead to a new romance, Three Coins: Will lead to Marriage.

Well, I'd love to know the combination of coins Kasey threw into the fountain because it worked!  Not only did she return to Italy but her boyfriend at the time - Josh flew over, surprised her and proposed while she watched the sunset over Florence with her family. Swoon!

Kasey's wedding was a very Bella affair - she outfitted her 10 bridesmaids and 3 "usherettes" in Bella dresses. She also found shower dresses and a dress for her rehearsal dinner during her many visits to the store.  Pictures from her wedding events and big day to come. Here is a sneak peak of her "usherettes" wearing Simple Silhouettes Phlox dress.
