It was a weekend to put in Blue’s history books. It marked the introduction of a new designer to the wedding scene, Hayley Paige, and the arrival of Brides Head Revisited and Tara Keely’s latest 2012 designs. It was a bit of a VIB (Very Important Bride) party, where Denver brides got a sneak peak at the collections and the exclusive chance to be one of the first brides to strut their stuff down there own red carpet runway on their special day.
Proud to be one of Denver’s only bridal store to carry Paige’s designs, not only did she personally sit in during consultations, but was gracious enough to lend us her entire new collection. Yes, straight off the runway! This is what the young innovator had to say about our amazing weekend.
“Blue is the boutique for your something marvelous! Our first trunk show together was not only a celebration of the fun and fabulous bride, but also an indulgence of Denver’s wonderful ambiances. My gowns and I are very excited to have a home there.”
Also fresh off the NY models were the 2012 gowns from Tara Keely by Lazaro. Carrie Edwards, our favorite and amazingly talented JLM stylist, helped brides see Lazaro’s vision first hand as she took the bride through all aspects of design, fabric and during their styling sessions. As one of our most popular designers, Lazaro’s use of glamorous vintage details and floral touches on romantic silhouettes wowed us yet again. He also included one of 2012s hottest trends in this collection, COLOR!
“I was very inspired to bring color back into bridal this year,” Lazaro says. “I included soft shades of Sherbert, Blush and Antique in fabrics like silk satin, silk organza and tulle.”
Also aligning with the vintage trend holding strong through 2012, BHR brings their own variation. Founders Alex and Emily aren’t new to this recently popular design inspiration, BHR’s foundation sits on their shared love of history.
“Emily and I met while working at the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art , and for the six years we were there, we were surrounded by the most amazing examples of fashion through the ages.”
The sneak peak of the collection was shown to brides by the accessory aficionado herself, Alex Augustine. She adorned the brides trying on their new gowns with combs strewn with Swarovski crystals and pearls, feathered headbands and polka dotted french veils. Not to mention ,the ladies from BHR created some adorable one of a kind black flowers for all of us to wear during the show! Thanks Emily and Alex!!!
As if the brides weren’t gorgeous enough, we elevated the already elegant ambiance through amazing floral arrangements done by Denver’s own Pink Posey Designs. They even provided the brides with unique rose bouquets touched with heart shaped gems to complete their wedding day look. Picture perfect!
And speaking of pictures we couldn’t have better remembered the day without the pictures captured by Dawn Sparks. Why wouldn’t we pick one of Denver’s A-list wedding photographers! Here’s some great moments she captured.
