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.

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! ❤

“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

I became in love with beautiful things from my grandmother Kelly! She had love of beautiful things which included china, crystal and sterling silver place settings and alway instilled the importance of entertaining beautifully with the right items! I was lucky enough to have had my grandmother give me an 8 piece place setting of my china Lenox Autumn for my Highschool graduation! (I know this is something the average student would not want, but not me)! To this day I use my china, crystal and sterling silver whenever I have guests over for dinner or plan a party at my home! The complements are endless! Never not register for china, crystal or sterling silver! You never know when you will need to set a beautiful table! ❤, Jane Kelly
