Welcome to the last entry in our Bridal Market coverage. Even though our fun must come to an end, we’ve got quite the finale for you!
After hitting the Piers and seeing new and old friends alike, we stopped for a quick pick-me-up at Eleni’s in the MeatPacking District on the way to our meeting at Gabriella New York. When you have a fabulous photographer in cahoots with you, it’s hard not to stop for an impromptu photo shoot! Thanks, Trent!
Visiting the Gabriella New York Bridal Salon was definitely one of the highlights of our trip! Not only was Gabriella a complete doll and her staff sweet as pie, but her salon was filled with the most gorgeous gowns and bridal accessories.
One particular lovely caught my eye as soon as we walked in – the amazing “Addison” from Marchesa. Gabriella was kind enough to let me try it on and let me tell you I literally died! Whitney fell for this stunning Sassi Holford and I think her first time in a wedding dress might have been her best! BIG huge thank you hugs to Gabriella and her team for making this MAJOR fashion moment happen!
We couldn’t have asked for a better way to end our Bridal Market whirlwind then with the Romona Keveza Legends show. Romona herself sat in a large comfy chair and described each dress as smiling models twirled around a gorgeous suite at the St. Regis. Fashion heaven! We were so thrilled to be a part of her last Market show and to have chatted with her after. I especially loved the lace-edged cathedral length veils and that her collection was inspired by real brides everywhere.

Whitney and I hope that you enjoyed following along with our adventures in the city that never sleeps! We are so grateful to have been able to take y’all along for the ride! Special thanks to our amazing Editor in Chief Lara for being such an awesome boss and to our fabulous photographer Trent Bailey! Whitney, you we’re a fabulous partner in crime and I can’t wait for next year already!
