Tulle New York Shoot

When Colson Griffith came to me a few months ago with the idea of shooting a group of brides I was so excited to finally bring to life what my idea of a #KJbride is; fun, flirty, loves to laugh. We had to pick the right dresses and with our Tulle New York trunk show right around the corner things fell together seamlessly. Their view on bridal and current collection fit the look we were going for and I don't think you could find a more fun team to work with. We brought Angel's Petals on board for her creativity which you can see in the boho pieces she created; like a flower belt and veil. My secret Pinterest board of flower veils was finally coming to life!

Messy braids, smiling brides, bright flowers and a killer Pandora play list... what more could you ask for! A few out takes from the shoot....

KJ Bride - Rachel

We can't say enough great things about Rachel...having a bride like her is exactly what makes this job so special for all of us. Here are her words on shopping with us....

'My experience with Kinsley James will forever be remembered as one of the most exciting and happy experiences throughout my wedding planning process.  I had the pleasure of working with Katie, Amber, Dawn, and Melissa (she happens to be my wedding coordinator as well).  All of the girls were so professional and had amazing personalities!  They listened to what I was looking for, however, I went in with an open mind and wanted some professional opinions.  They greet you with champagne and huge smiles on their faces.  It truly made me feel welcome.  I was the only appointment so I had the place to myself!  I love the way it looks and feels in the store, like you are in a very special place!  My favorite parts were their roomy and well decorated dressing rooms and I absolutely loved their  LONG runway right down the center of the store.  It made me feel like I was in a fashion show ;) 

I had gone to 3 other salons and NONE made me feel even remotely as comfortable as when I was at Kinsley James.  I was happy, relaxed, felt in company of family and some new friends!  It made the difference for me in my purchase.  Sometimes its WHERE you buy your dress that gives you the most fond memories and Kinsley James provided that for me... The dress was the icing on the cake.  

I would recommend Kinsley James to ANY bride looking for not only the perfect dress, but the perfect dress shopping experience!!!'

KJ Bride - Melissa Faubert

Today we are so excited to share a very special wedding!  Melissa is a long time friend and works at Kinsley James.  She also found her custom Olia Zavozina dress here at KJ!  Melissa and CJ were married in Waikoloa, Hawaii. They had an intimate ceremony with a view of palm trees, sand and ocean, then we headed to a gorgeous, tiki-lit reception.  Her sueded silk gown was perfect for the beach; light, airy and romantic.  Melissa loved the fact that Olia Zavozina does custom measurements, which is very helpful with a curvy body shape.  She also loved working with Olia personally at the trunk show to add special elements to her gown; especially the Swarvoski crystals!   She wore a delicate veil by Toni Federici, and a sparkling garter by La Gartier, both available at Kinsley James.  The images were taken by the talented Angie Capri

Julia - First KJ Bride!

Julia holds a special place in our hearts here at Kinsley James!  We met Julia on our opening day; she was one of our first appointments and became the first Kinsley James bride!  All the stars were aligned for Julia, for us, and for the designer, Tara LaTour, who Julia connected with instantly. Tara's inspiration for the collection was "Where the Wild Things Are" which Julia loved since she is an aspiring children's books author!  We were so excited to help Julia find the perfect gown. She decided on a custom 'Tay' by Tara Latour wedding gown, and worked closely with us and the designer throughout the process to make sure that every detail fulfilled her vision. Her gown fit perfectly, and she looked absolutely beautiful on her wedding day. She was a pleasure to work with and became a great friend to all of us here at Kinsley James!
