Real Dress Theory Bride Ashley in Claire Pettibone

Photography by Kate Price 

One rainy, dreary Seattle day, a beautiful bride Ashley came in and shopped with The Dress Theory owner Camille. She told us all about her elegant, yet simple plans for a destination wedding in sunny Palm Springs. Not only did this destination wedding to the land of eternal sunshine sound like a dream, but the bride-to-be was incredibly calm, sensible, and stylish. Ashley looked gorgeous in her Claire Pettibone "Sky Between the Branches" gown. That is not an easy gown to wear! And takes a very special bride to pull off. And we think Ashley was one of those lucky girls. 

We were delighted to see Ashley's wedding on Style Me Pretty, and to make it extra special…. Their wedding photographer Kate Price recently found her own wedding dress with us at The Dress Theory Seattle. We love that! Congrats newlyweds, and thanks for being a stylish, beautiful #realdresstheorybride - We are so lucky to have all our incredible ladies! Real dress theory brides are the best brides! If you follow us on Instagram, that may sounds familiar… ;)


The Dress Theory
PS One of our favorite elements other than Ashley, her beautiful gown, and the newlywed love and happiness you can just feel in the photos, those incredible ivory, flowy bridesmaid dresses! We love bridesmaid dresses in off-white. It's so unexpected and a little edgy, but simultaneously so classic! If Kate Middleton did it, it cannot be more chic and classic… right?? But they also has this fun, risk-taking side to the gowns too! We LOVE it! And we love that Ashley felt confident in her own presence and style to put her bridesmaids in ivory, we hear so often that someone is scared the bride won't stand out unless she is the only person at the wedding wear some shade of white. Ashley is proof that's far from the truth! Any bride owning her confidence, style, bliss, and love will surely stand out on her wedding no matter what! Especially if said bride is rocking a Dress Theory gown ;)
