Real Dress Theory Bride Leah


Sweet, talented, beautiful, witty, and artistic. All words we'd use to describe our bride Leah. We first met Leah on her birthday when she came shopping for her wedding dress with her mother and grandma at our Nashville boutique. With her effortless, inimitable style, and her easy-going personality, she was a true Sarah Seven bride from the start. It didn't take long to realize Sarah Seven "The Gibson" was perfect for her. 

Leah is an artist and also works at right next door to us at Fort Houston creating true beauty as part of Consider the Wldflwrs. We've been dreaming of taking one of their Floral Workshops and wearing some of their dainty jewelry pieces. Especially the Rose Gold Mountain ring and the Tennessee Stamp Necklace. I'm just in awe... Could our brides be any cooler? We love how Leah stayed true to her personal style on her wedding day. From her dainty jewelry, her leather belt (!!!!), and her natural flowers she arranged with the jewelry designer behind Consider the Wldflwrs.

Real Dress Theory Bride Laura

























All Photos - By Shea Photography

We feel so lucky our sweet and stylish Nashville bride Laura came to shop with us. After two visits to our boutique, Laura knew that the Elizabeth gown by Nicole Miller was the dress for her wedding day. The Elizabeth dress fit her dream for a wedding dress with it's flowy skirt, interesting back, and effortless feel perfect for her laid-back wedding day. We've fallen in love with our southern brides like Laura! They are sweet as a peach and so comfortable with their own personal style and letting that shine on their wedding day. It doesn't get much better than that for us! Laura knew the exact look she was going for and wanted to feel like herself on her wedding day. We love how she still her gorgeous gown with her signature ombre curls (of course by Parlour and Juke where Laura first heard about our boutique), layered necklaces and stacked rings, and shades of blush for her bridesmaids. Thanks for sharing such a special part of your wedding planning process with us Laura! And good luck with your move to North Carolina! And a special thanks to Shea for sharing these incredible photos with us, that series of Laura getting ready with the help of her mom and grandma just might be the sweetest wedding photos we've EVER seen.
