Dress like the Stars

I've been watching Dancing with the Stars all season long and I'm obsessed with their costumes! Recently as I was browsing through some bridesmaid dresses online I found some DWTS look-a-likes. Of course none of them are as flashy as the real deal... we don't want the bride to upstaged no do we?!

Love Pam's one shoulder chiffon gown?

This one is from Dessy!

Kristi Yamaguchi wore a dramatic skirt.

Alvina Valenta
has an equally dramatic bridesmaid dress.

This gown has an amazing back!

While this number from JLM Couture has a beautifully detailed back too.

Stylish Traditions Celebrates an Amazing Wedding!

May 22, 2010 Jessica Guido & Kenny Mosseri tied the knot. A momentous occasion at Stylish Traditions as Jessica was a previous bride of mine at Solutions Bridal! What a beautiful wedding we had going on at The Portofino Bay. Great vendors make a great wedding and this one was filled with flowers by Lee Forrest, DJ service by Scooter, string trio by Strings N' Things, photography by Fox Photography, rentals by Room Service and lighting by Get Lit Productions.

Take a look at these pictures I snapped as a preview to when we get the real deal from Fox Photography!

Ceremony at Villa Piazza, Portofino Bay Hotel

Reception in the Venetian Ballroon

Can we talk about the bouquets?! Love them!

Weddings in the Deep Blue Sea

Bon Voyage! For my birthday this year Crafton surprised me with a week long cruise on Royal Caribbean's Liberty of the Seas. It was truly amazing. There was rock climbing, ice skating, and even weddings! We saw two brides boarding the ship after their St. Maarten beach wedding with family, attendants and flower girls following behind. Talk about all inclusive... a wedding and honeymoon in one!

Would any of you brides consider having your wedding on a Cruise?

Yes, but only if my maid of honor was on board!
No way, too much of a financial commitment for my guests

Buona Sera

Recently I visited the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel in preparation for a wedding we have at the end of May. I'm so glad I had the chance to visit because I almost forgot how beautiful the property is! Reminiscent of the Italian city of Venice, the Portofino has great outdoor and indoor space for weddings and special events. You even have the opportunity to take a gondola ride as you leave your reception

MIA but now I'm BACK!

Okay.... so it's been a while since I've last blogged. A very, very long while! But since I've been MIA I've been busy blogging for Solutions Bridal, busy preparing for an upcoming wedding at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel in Orlando, and not so busy on vacation to the Caribbean Islands!

Take a look at some of the great shots we got while on vacation:

While blogging for Solutions Bridal I came about some exciting news about their Orlando Grand Opening. "Lucky in Love" is the theme as they open the new store near the Millenia Mall at 4194 Conroy Rd. Suite 103. From May 21- Sunday 23rd Solutions will be hosting a Kenneth Pool trunk show featuring new collections and hard to find gowns.

Take a look at Real Housewife Bethenny Frankel's gown she wore at her recent wedding. PS- It's Kenneth Pool!
