Carine's Bridal spotlight on Jennifer Stiebel

A little while back we were touched to be interviewed by Carine from Carine's Bridal Atelier, one of the BEST dress shops in Washington, DC!  She asked us great questions ranging from how a typical day in the life of a planner goes to what some of our favorite things about weddings are.  To get all the juicy answers, check out her blogpost on the interview here!  There are great pictures from some of our recent weddings as well!

Have a great weekend!!

Tom or Jimmy?!?!

Two major, but very different men in the shoe world have staked their claim in the bridal market.  
Tom and Jimmy have both introduced their latest collection with brides and company in mind.

TOMS Shoes have focused their sights on the bride who wants to be comfortable on her wedding day...imagine that?!?!  There is a shoe for everyone in the wedding party, and with the "One for One" program you could give back to those in need many times over when outfitting your maids and men in these comfy and stylish digs.  

TOMS are a great choice for outdoor weddings, and I especially think they are perfect for the little ones in the wedding. Any flower girl will love the sparkles!

Jimmy Choo's Bridal Collection is a little more my style and I am drooling over the amazing shoes.  A few of my brides wore the Nova shoe this past year, so I was not surprised when this turned into an entire bridal collection.  The shoes are stunning, classic, and comfortable (considering they average 4" or higher).  You can choose from rich silk satin, delicate lace, or glamorous glitter.  You really cannot pick a bad shoe from this collection! Below are a few of my favorite! 

Lastly, here is our real bride, Kendall, wearing the Jimmy Choo Nova shoe, BEYOND!

Which collection will get you down the aisle??
