FIVE TIPS FROM DESIGNER CLAIRE PETTIBONE

Take it easy…approach dress shopping with a sense of fun and adventure. If you walk into your appointment feeling stressed, it can take the joy out of what should be a highlight of the pre-wedding planning. You WILL find the gown…you found the groom, that’s the hard part!
Stay true, and go with what you love. Choose details that resonate with you, and it won’t really matter what’s “in”. Trends come and go, but if you truly love your dress, or a particular style or theme, then you will always look back on the day and your photos with that same joy.
Backstory…it’s hard to take our eyes off a beautiful bride, and your guests will be watching you from ceremony to dancing. The dress should look beautiful from every angle, and I love a sensuous back detail.
Incorporate some homemade touches, whether you do them yourself, or enlist the help of crafty or talented family and guests. Things made with love add another dimension that you will miss if the wedding is over-produced.
The one thing that absolutely EVERY bride needs is a one-of-a-kind groom who is madly in love with her.

❤Happy 52nd Anniversary John and Dorothy Kelly!❤

❤Happy 52nd Anniversary John and Dorothy Kelly!❤

It was New Orleans 1958. She wore a crown of pearl and jewels releasing a royal length veil of gossamer illusion. Her gown was a sheath silhouette of white chantilly lace over silver lame. With long fitted point sleeves and a Sabrina neckline, her royal cathedral train floated across the ballroom. With John by her side as her date for the evening, Dorothy looked just like a young queen bride with her royal court at the ball. It was one of New Orleans’ famous costume balls, and at the center of the evening’s fabulous celebration was a young couple who had just met the summer before; a romance that blossomed into a loving marriage still celebrated today.

Dorothy’s cousin, Rosalie, introduced the teens on her front porch one summer day in 1957. Rosalie and John had grown up in the same New Orleans neighborhood.

“Rosalie suggested that I ask Dot for a date,” John remembers, “I did and was turned down because she had a previous engagement. My interest peaked when she offered me a ‘rain check,’ and I accepted.”

John and Dorothy married August 25, 1962, at St. Leo the Great Catholic Church in New Orleans. The bride’s stunning diamond white tissue taffeta gown was stunning and classic. It was clear she had an eye for style and a passion for making her wedding day a beautiful celebration. Over the next half century, she would help hundreds of brides do the same.

written by Abby Broyles

FUN FACTS: 800 people attended the wedding!  John and Dorothy were in the receiving line for 2 hours, and Dorothy’s father was in the fruit and produce so all the center pieces were elaborately decorated with real fruit and produce…no flowers!

Happy 53rd Anniversay Mom And Dad!  Love, Jane, Jill, John and Patrick! ❤

Cool Quote!

“I consider lace to be one of the prettiest imitations ever made of the fantasy of nature; lace always evokes for me those incomparable designs which the branches and leaves of trees embroider across the sky, and I do not think that any invention of the human spirit could have a more graceful or precise origin.”
Coco Chanel, April 29, 1939
