swoon worthy sale: Beaded Alice & Olivia Gown



Hello lover!!! Meet Alice & Olivia’s Maybelle gown.  The beading and sparkly details is what caught my eye, but the sheer back panels and the scalloped lace is what made me swoon!  This gown is the perfect combination of feminine, sexy, and elegant.

Are you swooning?  The Maybelle is also what I like to call a swoon steal, as it is on sale for $1,473 (originally $2455)!

P.S. yes, i tried to distract you with an amazing gown as I slyly came back into studio swoon after a few months hiatus.  my hiatus for all good reasons though, as this summer season has proven to be a swoonfilled ride with back-to-back weddings from Manhattan to Turks & Caicos, traveling, a very big birthday with a very big surprise from mr. swoon and much more!  i can’t wait to share all of those big moments with you. thank you for your patience!  brush off your dancing shoes while i prepare many updates from studio swoon!

ever swoon wedding || Caroline & Wooin – teaser video

official ever swoon

This email made my day.

“….We got our videos and I thought you might want to see the short one :)

I still can’t thank you enough for all that you did for us! And I still miss our daily emails haha. Take care, and give Bella a rub for me!!”


This video by the talented Alexandra Meseke makes me smile from ear to ear!! I absolutely adore this couple and hold them and their wedding very close to my heart.  The bride, Caroline, is as sweet as the song, and her husband is a true gentleman.  It was an absolute pleasure working with them, and it was incredibly fulfilling to see them enjoy the entire planning process.

They signed with me in April of last year and wanted an outdoor wedding with a tented reception in the Hudson Valley for 300 guests the following September.  That is a 6 month timeline with a goal at the peak of wedding season.  That’s what I call a swoon-worthy challenge! We went full swoon ahead, and it all came together on September 22, 2012, on the beautiful property of Monteverde at Oldstone, on the Hudson River.

Thank you to Caroline and Wooin for allowing me to be a part of that special day and special time in your lives!  Bella and I miss you both.
