Danielle and Patrick’s wedding was featured back in 2010 but I couldn’t help posting it again, given the time of year and the bride’s timeless sense of style. Happy New Year, y’all!
Most of us have gotten used to seeing a little snow out our window this winter. The continual white blanket has caused us to get creative when it comes to staying warm. For Danielle, who woke up on her wedding day to see the sky filled with white, Mother Nature was the ultimate style maker.
I’m so happy to share the work of Alison Conklin with you all this morning and welcome Danielle back to Perfect Bound. Danielle actually made her first Perfect Bound appearance way back when we were in the same letterpress class together at The University of the Arts. At the time, Danielle was in the midst of launching her own
letterpress company, Love Leigh Invitations, which she now co-runs.
Snow or now snow, Danielle’s wedding style is bold and brilliant. She was kind enough to walk us through her design process and share the details of her enviable date with wedding gown designer Matthew Christopher.
After our engagement photo session, Alison gave me the hair clip from Lo Boheme and that is when I knew I had to have a cage veil and wanted to have a vintage, somewhat old Hollywood glam look with some tasteful fur, feathers and bling“
“I had found that I really loved Matthew Christopher designs on TheKnot. So i researched and found that Bridal Sophisticates (ijn Media, PA) was the closest store that sold his gowns. They informed me of a trunk show that was going to happen in the next month and that Matthew himself would be there fitting each bride with her “one” dress! So we headed for the trunk show, not really intending on purchasing anything (it was only the second store we were going to,) and we had such a blast.
Matthew was the BEST! He asked me what type of wedding we were creating and about my style. I told him about the gown I fell in love with on his site. H said, “Ok, try it on but you HAVE to try on the Metropolitan!” I tried on about 6 totally different dresses and as I tried on each one he came in and helped with the decision making and styling that could be possible for each look. Then when I put on his choice, he was totally right. The Metropolitan was the one! I was soooo lucky to have that experience!”
