Temperley London Florence Wedding Dress

For our final Bridal look of the week, we’re featuring the “Florence” wedding dress from one of our favorites, Temperly London. Thanks again to Camille, Bryce, Heidi, and Amy for all of these stunning features.

From Camille at The Dress Theory:

We are lucky to be surrounded by gorgeous gowns in our boutiques every day, but Temperly London’s “Florence” is a stand out. We love Florence for her luxe long sleeves and intricate lace. The eyelash edging adds to the timeless appeal, and the striking slim mermaid shape and fashion forward long sleeves make the dress quintessentially Temperley. We also adore this dress for its combination of soft romance and strong style.

Bryce captured this balance and translated the beauty and power of this gown, flawlessly. 

To compliment such a statement-making dress, we chose a classic cut-edge veil by Sara Gabriel, fresh makeup, and a romantic, soft up do. We envisioned delicate and dreamy styling to keep the focus on the beautiful bride and this exquisite gown. Amy and Heidi realized this vision and took it to the next level with their expertise.

Alice Temperley designs her gowns “with the aesthetic she believes in; elegant, feminine, ethereal, and timeless.” We think Florence perfectly embodies this aesthetic. This dress and other styles from Temperley London’s latest collection will be available in select boutiques, including The Dress Theory, starting this month. We cannot wait to see our brides in Seattle and Nashville try on this unforgettable wedding dress!

Jenny Packham Rose Wedding Dress

From Camille at The Dress Theory:

Always the epitome of glamour, Jenny Packham’s entire Spring/Summer 2014 bridal collection is stunning. We featured one of our favorites, the “Rose” dress, which has an elegant bateau neckline, a classy silhouette, and refined embellishment. Heidi created a polished high bun to contrast the soft drape of the fabric and complement the chic design, and Amy applied light and dewy makeup to finish the look as classic and stylish. We love how Bryce captured the beauty and effortless elegance of the Rose dress perfectly.

Philosophy Flowers and Heather Payne Floral Workshop

Flower Workshop Flyer (1)

You may remember seeing the DIY Concrete Candle post with Kelly Perry of Philosophy Flowers and Heather Payne Photography earlier this month.  Today the duo is back with an invitation to create with them in person in the beautiful mountains of Boone, North Carolina.  During the flower workshop attendees will sample hundreds of spring flowers and get hands-on instruction in building arrangements and perfecting them for the camera.  Students will create individual pieces that will be shot by Heather on film for personal portfolios and the class will come together as “Team Flower” to create a stunning group editorial piece!

Kelly has also booked some amazing guest speakers who will share apps to help you maximize your business, wardrobe essentials for the modern florist, tips on styling to sell and getting your work published, and quick culinary delights for when you’re so busy petal pushing that you don’t have time to eat!

We love that Kelly has planned a thoughtful, inclusive workshop that will teach students practical floral design skills and keys to building a strong business and a fulfilling life!  Take advantage of this wonderful, affordable opportunity while there are still seats!  Class limit: 12.  Learn more by visiting or email Kelly directly at to reserve your space.
