Life is made up of highs and lows, trials and tribulations, failures and successes. It is no secret that our successes fuel our drive and help cope with the many failed attempts that lay behind us. Here at Gold Leaf, we are fortunate enough to see our successes everyday in the happy emails from brides and corporations alike. The "Thank you"'s, "we LOVE it"'s, and "we cannot wait"'s, are fulfilling enough as it is, but recently we reached a very proud moment in our careers when we were chosen as one of Martha Stewart Wedding's Top Wedding Planners. The un-rivaled hard work of owners Chelsea Dillon and Kate Ryan is no secret to any client or company within the industry, thus making this title a humbling, honorable, and much deserved achievement. We have respected and drawn immense inspiration from Martha Stewart Wedding's throughout the years, and are beyond proud to be in a category with such talent.
We put such effort into learning everything we can about the client as one of our first steps in creating an event. We want their day, whether it be a wedding, birthday, anniversary, or major conference, to feel unique and individualized. There are too many "cookie cutter" events and we strive to standout as the opposite. We are incredibly honored and so pleased that our passions show through our work. Congratulations to everyone who has been chosen, we hope one day we get to collaborate!
With spring collections quickly nudging themselves onto racks everywhere, we are dying to see what 2015 brides will be wearing! Last year was subtle, and lacy; giving the "Good Witch" style (Wizard of Oz...got it?), a much needed breather. Both looks are exceptional in their own right but we are really hoping for more laid back, au naturale bridal looks. As we patiently wait for this years wedding dress trends and styles to present themselves, we have taken a look at a few of our trend setting 2014 Gold Leaf brides. These three dresses bring a uniqueness and ever classic look to the table. We feel we will see a lot more of these themes in the proceeding months.
The stripes on this dress give such a whimsical feel without being over the top. It remains feminine and flowing with a gathered back. Absolutely in love.
This 20's inspired dress is effortlessly elegant. With subtle front and precise stitching detail, the dress fits and falls perfectly.
Our bride Brooke wears the most breath taking vintage lace gown for her wedding. The back buttons continue all the way down the train which we LOVE. The lace fabric in conjunction with the ultra romantic veil makes all of his absolutely stunning.
How is a girl to decide!? Well this is just a little inspo. Have fun and choose whatever makes you comfortable and feeling amazing. Those qualities are sure to shine.
