We were thrilled when we saw our bride Nicole Marriott was featured in Grace Ormonde’s fall/winter 2014 issue! It was such a pleasure to work with Nicole and her family through her bridal gown experience. Nicole wore a Liancarlo gown and a custom Monique Lhuillier skirt. Her and her husband, Maxwell Avery met in a college English class in 2006.They were married seven years later on April 27, 2013 at the Washington National Cathedral and celebrated their reception at the Corcoran Gallery of Art.

Yesterday, for our Mother’s Day celebration, I got to hang out with my sister and her two little ones. My adorable niece, Chloe, wanted to play dress up and chose to wear a short Marchesa wedding gown (perfect length for this little lady).

While doing what all little girls do when they play dress-up, Chloe announced to us that she was a princess and then curtsied for us like a pro. I loved little Chloe’s charm, charisma, and energy. Such a spark of energy!

Being with my family was such a great way to spend Mother’s Day and I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day too!

Think pastels for spring 2013….!

Pastels are back at it again, they were a hot trend in 2012, but we’re not complaining.  We are going ga-ga for this ultra feminine and soft look. Fabrics like lace, satin, cotton, and silk are looking better than ever

in a, “muted rainbow” color palette this season.
