Kyle Michelle Weddings Blog
I wanted to show off these amazing, trendy and unique dresses that some of our 2019 - 2020 brides have completely rocked! What we love about making this blog is that societal norm with wedding dresses, no longer exists- different is key! There are now dress changes in the middle of the celebration for a new, sleek and fun look, brides are no longer restricted to simply wearing white, and some are even spicing it up with cool colored heels, different hairstyles or even topping it off with spicy red lips. AHH, I just live for this content...
Feast your eyes!
Emily looked stunning in this pure white wedding gown, but not only did the kill the game in this classic gown, but in the middle of the reception she changed into a shorter and comfier couture dress paired with flats for a more fun and party look!
"I knew I loved the designer and knew that I wanted an embellished type dress, and honestly, the stylist I worked with really nailed it. I only tried on about six dresses total because when I tried this one on, literally nothing else compared!"
Emilys custom designed wedding dress was created by Sweet Caroline Styles. She knew she wanted a statement piece so they made a detachable skirt that she wore during the ceremony and then slipped it off for the reception. It is so cool and unique to see the sketches and then see the final project.
"I loved my dress for so many reasons!
1. The design! I loved that it was whimsical, with botanical looking lace. It was sexy with the low back but still sweet with the light pink in the skirt.
2. It was convertible! The skirt came off and it became the perfect simple, dancing dress"
Oh Kelly, where do I begin with this amazing dress? It was the prettiest shade of nude with breathtaking details in the wrap - but even when that wrap came off in the middle of the night, she looked sleek, sexy and stunning!
"One of our first stops was to Bridal Reflections on 5th Avenue. I tried on the Magnolia almost immediately and loved it so much! I told myself to keep looking only because it was day 1 and dress shopping couldn’t be that easy, could it? The following weekend we cancelled our appointments and only made one with Bridal Reflections and once I put the Magnolia back on was an easy, “say yes to the dress” moment."
Leah was simplistic and insanely classy with this unique off-the-shoulder wedding gown. I wish I had a picture of what she changed too after this gown - it was a tight and sexy, white, lace jumpsuit so that she could continue to dance the night away!
This dress was amazing in every way possible and no only fit Linley like a glove, but fit her personality as well.
"I always wanted to do feathers, because I fell in love with a dress that had feathers on it while I was dress shopping, but Priscilla Costa made me one I liked even more! I also loved how comfortable it was, this was important to me because I knew that I wanted to be able to dance and have fun. I think it was the perfect winter wonderland dress and I couldn’t have loved it more."
Marty's dress was pure elegance, but what we loved about even more was her strive to make a bang with her pop of red lipstick.
"When I started trying on wedding gowns, I gravitated towards gowns with a lot of details, but when I looked in the mirror, I only saw the dress — not me IN the dress. So after two unsuccessful appointments, I did a 180 and asked to see some clean and simple gowns. That did it! When I put on my Vera Wang gown for the first time, I saw myself as a bride marrying my husband. It was timeless, elegant, and sexy, and I felt beautiful. The gown allowed me to shine!"
Melissa was a vision in this strapless dress with blush undertone - she was a real live princess against the NYC sunset.
"I did not have a clear vision of my wedding dress before I started looking and was surprised that I found my dress so quickly. When I tried this Monique dress on during my first day looking, I knew it was the one. I loved the soft, romantic vibe that this dress gives off with the lace and blush undertone. I never envisioned myself wearing a big ballgown, but when else besides your wedding day do you get to wear a dress like this?!"
This gown was absolute perfection for a classy and elegant wedding. The front of this dress looks simple but the back of it was so unique with a huge bow that literally made the dress.
"I knew I wanted a dress that felt classic with a Southern feel to compliment my tented venue and magnolia leaf greenery. When I saw this bow, I fell in love!"
Linley and Matt had the most amazing vision for their wedding day and it was an honor to make their vision come to life. The ceremony was at St. Patricks Church where they had a live choir throughout the ceremony. The reception was at The Logan, where tons of Christmas trees and twinkle lights were awaiting the guests. Linley and Matt were extremely happy and head over heels about the end result of the venue. As the night came to an end, they performed the famous Will Smith song, "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" while Philly cheesesteaks were passed around to all of the guests. This amazing Christmas wedding absolutely stole our hearts and we wish much love and happiness to this beautiful couple as this wedding will be in our hearts forever!
Let's talk about this dress... This dress was designed by the bride and Priscilla Costa - starting with just a sketch on a piece of paper. The feather and sequin design made every sway and movement completely breathtaking. This dress is a one of a kind, just like the bride!!!
Cocktail hour and the reception was at The Logan - where a custom-made champagne tower was waiting for each guest topped with a cinnamon sugar rim, a dash of rosemary and cranberries with each flute. The champagne tower really helped to tie together the vision of Christmas and class. The reception area was filled with lit-up Christmas trees, wreaths, red and burgundy florals and candles - it was truly a wonderland.
Not shown: the 3 costume changes this band did throughout their performance. They were one of the most interactive bands we've ever experienced and they sure knew how to bring a party to the dance floor!
Emily and Chase shared their different cultures in a beautiful, two-day celebration at the most amazing venues. Friday, they had their Hindu Ceremony at The Logan Hotel in Philadelphia with a red, pink and gold color scheme. Saturday, was a magical, sophisticated and classy setting with greenery and white florals dripping from the ceiling of a spectacular sail cloth tent. This couple was completely in awe of each other, and as were we... Emily and Chase share a love for McDonalds, so of course we made sure to pick-up tons of take-out food for the couple and the guests to enjoy late night. This two-day celebration was nothing less than perfection and we were truly grateful to be a part of their special day!
Hindu Ceremony at The Logan Hotel
Saturday Wedding at Andalusia Estate
College sweethearts, Amanda and Daniel, said their "I do's" at The Logan Hotel, on the 1st of June. Starting off with Acrylic invitations, it quickly became Acrylic everything; the itinerary, the welcome boxes, programs, menus, the signs, escort cards and the ballroom. Amanda and Daniels vision of their ceremony and ballroom came to life and it radiated through their faces as it was revealed. The music, the toasts and the smile on all of the guests faces revolved around the bride and groom. It was truly a night to remember! The fun didn't stop after the live band stopped, there was a huge candy bar, a cigar bar with imported cigars and even an after party. This group sure knew how to have a good time! We had a ball planning and coordinating the wedding. Amanda and Daniel, you deserved nothing less than perfection. We wish you a lifetime of happiness, laughter, and love.
