Designer Spotlight: Stella York

We are so excited to be hosting a Stella York trunk show on July 18th-19th, so we wanted to show you a bit of what we LOVE about this great designer! Every bride can feel like a star in a Stella York gown! In fact, “stella” means star, so it is their goal to make you feel like the one you are on your wedding day.

Stella York gowns feature delicate beading and illusion backs, making each bride look like she should be walking the bridal “red carpet” (or the aisle)! The Stella York bride wants to be admired and adored on her wedding day, as her dress is making a statement to everyone around her. Take a look at a few of the Stella York designs we carry here at Whittington Bridal!

As you can see, Stella York carries a bit of something for every bride, and it all shows the personality and poise of the bride wearing it! This season, we are also noticing a lot of dramatic backs from Stella York. Beyond the elegant illusion backs, many gowns feature deep low backs for a sexy touch.

♥ Mr. and Mrs. Smesny ♥

Where did you get married?

We got married at Old River Assembly Of God Church in Dayton, TX.

What was your first dance song?

Our first dance was “I Cross my Heart,” by George Strait

What was your favorite part of your wedding?

Marrying my best friend was of course my favorite part 😉

What are you glad you splurged on?

My dress was my biggest splurge. And I wouldn’t change it.

What is your advice to future brides?

Best advice for a bride would be to not stress over silly details.. You’re the only one who will know if something messes up, don’t make it a big deal. The “oops” made some of my favorite memories 🙂

What is your husband’s name and your new last name?

My husband’s name is Travis. And my new name is Mrs. Lacy Jade Smesny 🙂

 Where did you get married?

St. Anne’s Catholic Church in Houston!

What was your first dance song?

    “Our Love Is Here To Stay”- Billie Holiday

What was your favorite part of your wedding? 

We had such a great time dancing the night away! We wanted to make sure everyone had fun at the wedding, & I think we were successful!

What are you glad you splurged on?

My dress. I absolutely loved it and loved how I looked on the wedding day. I couldn’t wait to wear it on the big day. I have never felt that beautiful before and I got so many compliments on my dress and how I looked on the wedding day.

What is your advice to future brides? 

Have fun with the wedding planning process, and don’t forget to enjoy the time you are engaged! Do your research on your vendors, but try to narrow down your list to 3 or 4 people and companies to set up appointments to talk to in person. Otherwise, you can become overwhelmed easily!

Some of our new arrivals we’ve posted over the summer!

Top Left: Lilly by Stella York // Our favorite part of this dress has to be the beaded back!

Top Right: Finley by Stella York // The ruffled bottom is incredibly lightweight, which gives the dress an angelic feel.

Bottom Left: Gabby by Stella York // The combination of tulle, beading, and lace is to die for!

Bottom Right: Avalon by Justin Alexander // We love the feminine feel of the dress, especially evident in the delicate lace sleeves.

Highlights from the Look of Love Fashion Show!

“Look of Love” Fashion Show

This past April, we joined forces with Northeast Houston’s premier vendors and The Overlook to present our “Look of Love” Fashion show, and now we are sharing this beautiful show with you!

Our fashion show this year had a woodland theme, complete with flower crowns, wavy hairstyles, and gorgeous wedding gowns (of course!). The Overlook hosted our show, and it served as a stunning venue for an outdoorsy fashion show…or just a gorgeous wedding! Their expansive windows and extravagant chandeliers pulled our whole look together!

We featured dresses from the bridal collections of Essense of Australia, Justin Alexander, and Lillian West. “Look of Love” also featured bridesmaid collections by Sorella Vita, Bill Levkoff, and Saison Blanche. Take a look at a few of the show-stopping gowns shown on the runway!

Of course, we could never have done this without the fabulous vendors that worked with us! All of the photos shown here, and many more, are the work of Joey T Photography. Our flowers that fit our woodland theme perfectly were designed by Flowers of Kingwood, and the hair and makeup for all of our models was done by Epic Looks.

5. What is your advice to future brides?

Just know that you’re going to be stressed the month of the wedding, and be prepared for it. Make a battle plan with all the things you want to tackle in those weeks before the wedding, and follow it. By doing this I was able to completely relax when we got to Maine (3 days before the wedding), knowing I already took care of everything!

What are you glad you splurged on?

My dress and the photographer are definitely the two things that were worth so much more than any momentary amount!

bridal_056

What is your advice to future brides? 

The best advice I can think of is for brides to research vendors, find the ones they are comfortable with, trust their expertise and then try to relax! I had amazing vendors and all the work they put in made my part easy, and the results were even better than I could have imagined!!
