Since the white wedding dress as we know it today burst into the fashion world with Queen Victoria’s wedding dress in 1840, it’s gone through a lot of different styles and trends.

In the 1900s, the style focused on a full and modest shape, with an S-shaped corset complete with ruffled blouse and large sleeves.

Meet Meredith & Colin

What can I say–another fabulous wedding in New Orleans at Latrobe’s on Royal. This was truly a celebration from the start at the beautiful Canal Street Presbyterian church to the finish with guests waving their hankies while the Kinfolk Brass band played second line. We bonded from the beginning. I was so excited to help them plan their perfect wedding and to really capture Meredith’s gorgeous vision. The reception was enchanting, with beautiful flocked Christmas tree and glowing candelabras draped with flowers. Magnolias were placed on tables throughout the rooms, creating a truly magical southern wedding. And the band brought the fun on the dance floor! Norris Date and Power Surge rocked the night away, and Meredith and Colin never left the dance floor. It was fun to plan and attend–it was really a wedding to remember. Thanks to my amazing team for making this an unforgettable evening. Please take a look at these beautiful pictures and experience the magic for yourself! ~ Carol […]
