After yesterday’s bright and colorful editorial, I’m so happy to bring you yet another sunny shoot. You’ll recognize it instantly, of course, since it’s the one from which we plucked our cover image! Photographer Ryan Ray and planner + stylist Stefanie Miles are the duo that pulled together this shoot — with lots of help from a few Texan pals!

I adore this shoot’s super clean palette of yellow and white. The stationery suite from The Creative Parasol kicked things off on the right note, with sunny hues and a snappy gingham pattern.

This shoot benefited from a few serendipitous finds, including the vintage yellow rose locket from Rhonda’s Treasures, below.

Alright, we’ve passed by enough floral photos to make it almost a crime to not have mentioned Bows + Arrows yet. They gathered and arranged all of the yellow blooms in this shoot, including the overflowing bouquet, the table centerpieces, and this stunning floral fence!

Hello, ladies! None models, all gorgeous. One of these gals is photographer Ryan Ray’s wife!

Last year we debuted a beau bar, and this year, we switched it up with a boutonniere bar! I love the sentiment behind making every guest feel like a VIP, and for a shoot focused on blooms, nothing could be more appropriate.

Isn’t this wood wall amazing? I also love that those rental chairs are super common and affordable – no chivaris needed!

Stefanie found the yellow plates at a local flea market, and made the patterned napkins herself! Talented lady, that one!

Alright, y’all, get ready for a squeal fest. Not only did this team put together an adult reception table, they put together a pint-size one, too! Remember what I said about those serendipitous finds? This yellow rose tablecloth (just $35!) falls under that category, too! And I LOVE that they used wooden crates for the kids’ seating!

Oh my word — there are no words!

Straight up love, wouldn’t you say? Be sure to check out the story of our beautiful bride and groom — a real couple! — in the print edition!

Can you believe we are only 20 days away from the arrival of V5? To help pass the time, join me for another look into Bridal Market 2012. I have lots of gorgeous gowns to share, plus an impromptu mini SW fashion show!! (PS: Don’t miss out on Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.)

We will start with the always amazing Badgley Mischka.

If I had to pick one word to describe this collection from Badgley Mischka, it would be glamour. The pleated tulle, delicate Chantilly lace and crystal embroidery (which was on almost EVERY gown – oh my stars) was soft and subtle and at the same time oh so glamorous. As a traditional ‘ballgown bride,’ I couldn’t help but wonder about trying on one of these lovely form-fitting beauties.

Our next step was a good ol’ squeal fest as we met and became fast friends with all the lovely LulaKate ladies. It was so fun to see these dresses in person, since they frequently make appearances on the blog in Real Wedding posts. Look for a few of these beauties in V5, too!

Somehow the LulaKate ladies convinced us to pull the frocks that we had been drooling over and have a mini SW fashion show. Marissa snagged a beautiful lace and striped dress with a detachable bow-belt, and I picked a lovely grey and white rugby stripe dress with pockets! After trying them on and prancing around, we decided we needed a place to wear these lovely dresses again.

Isn’t Katherine, the brilliant creator of LulaKate, just adorable? We were so grateful for her and her team and all their Southern hospitality.

Up next was Watters. During this show we were able to preview both the Watters and Wtoo collections, and boy oh boy were there a LOT of lovely dresses.

The camellia lacy overlay on the gown above added a layer of lovely texture to an already beautiful tulle ballgown. And of course, how can you not love the whisper pink beauty below with the hand-beaded detailing? We saw a lot of soft blush colors during Bridal Market this year, and this was definitely one of the prettiest.

The lovely C20 collection had some great LBD options that would be perfect for bridesmaids or maybe for a rehearsal dinner? This crewneck illusion lace dress was so chic, and I died over the hidden pockets in the sleeveless black satin number.

Finally, we stopped by the lovely Donna Morgan booth to take a peek at the fresh new styles and colors in their 2013 bridesmaid collection. We loved seeing the work of our friends Trent Bailey and Jackie of Merci New York on the walls of the Donna Morgan booth. The new campaign is gorgeous, y’all!

The coral dress, with its sassy texture, seemed like it would be the perfect thing to dance the night away in. And of course, we were all big fans of the stylish lace peplum in delicate pink.

We’ve got two more Bridal Market posts coming up, so stay tuned! BIG huge thanks to Kat Harris for photographing all these beauties for us!

P.S. Which is your favorite gown from this post? So hard to choose!

    I love the last Badgely cuz it’s just SO Badgely ya know? I had my girls wear LulaKate and I just think her gowns are the cream of the crop. Love that she is bringing in some lace textures! My favorite Watters gown is Row 3 left one. so girly!

  2. avatar Emily reply

    It’s so hard to pick a favorite with Badgley, because they’re all just so stunningly detailed, but I’m going to go with the one that looks like it has seashell embellishments. For Watters, I love the camellia lace overlay, and I adore all three of those bridesmaid looks! Love LulaKate and Donna Morgan as well!

  3. avatar Whitney reply

    I love the last dress for my bridesmaids – the lace in delicate pink. Can you send me more details on that one? I MUST find it.

    • avatar Kristin reply

      Whitney! I am pretty sure the lovely pink peplum will be available in the spring 2013. I will reach out to our Donna Morgan contact to confirm and definitely pass along any info I can collect for you!!

  4. avatar Victoria reply

    I love that LulaKate dress that Marissa tried on! I think it would work so beautifully for a rehearsal dinner dress or bridal shower dress.

    • avatar Marissa reply

      Oh Victoria! It was even better in person! I about died when I got to try it on! It’s inspired by Blake Lively – die again! : )

  5. avatar Kat Harris reply

    As crazy as NYC was…all these posts are making me want to go right back this instant.

    • avatar Kristin reply

      Kat! I was thinking the exact same thing as I was crafting this blog post. We saw a LOT of gorgeous in 3 short days.

  6. avatar Deb reply

    OMG I’m obsessed with Marissa’s dress! It’s perfect for a shower dress. I looked on the LulaKate website and didn’t see it. Do you know the name of it? LOVE

  7. avatar Quesa reply

    AHHH same! I need that LulaKate dress. I must wear it to my rehearsal dinner in December. How do I get my hands on it??!
