Amanda & Anthony at Labelle!
Since we're hosting a trunk show for Morilee, I figured why not feature one of our brides in a Morilee wedding gown! Amanda & Anthony were married at Labelle Winery in Amherst, NH, which is quite the venue.
Labelle is more convenient than you may think, located on State Route 101 in Amherst, New Hampshire, LaBelle Winery is close to all major highways, is only 6 miles from Interstate 93 near the Bedford town line, and is a short drive from the Boston Area. LaBelle Winery is accessible from two airports; Manchester Regional Airport, a mere 20 minutes away, and Boston’s Logan Airport, just 50 minutes away. With space and function rooms to hold weddings from 30 people, up to 200 people; it offers something for every bride.
The space at Labelle is both rustic and warm, with beamed ceilings and enormous windows that overlook the rolling grounds. And may I just mention the food at Labelle is incredible, this is no "banquet food" (it's probably the best wedding food you'll ever eat!). Another perk of Labelle are the numerous amount of places for amazing photo ops - whether it's on their manicured grounds, inside their wine cellar, or on their outdoor terrace, the possibilities are endless.
Amanda got married in a beautiful lace ballgown by Morilee, which she customized by adding crystal cap sleeves, and finished it off with a long flowing cathedral veil. These photos were shared with us by NH Images (nhimages.com) - enjoy!

Signature cocktails anyone?
I am loving that weddings lately have their own hashtags for social media - the combinations that create the hashtag are so clever and unique! What I also love is going to a wedding and seeing a signature drink for the bride, or for the groom, or for both! What a fun, and personal way to incorporate your favorite cocktail into your wedding day, and to be able to mix them up again on your anniversary for friends & family! Guests usually love this, and it's absolutely a conversation starter during cocktail hour, "...I didn't know she liked martinis!". Looking for inspiration? Here's a few ideas, and don't forget a cute name!

Did you know that we have a huge selection of bridal hairpieces for you to choose from? That's right! We stock basically every style bridal hair accessory under the sun, from sprays to combs, to side pieces, to headbands, to bridal crowns, we have it all. Bridal headpieces have certainly evolved in the time that I've been here, and while some traditional styles have stayed the same; the color options and styling has absolutely changed with the times.
Historically bridal hairpieces were available in mostly silver, with accents of crystals and pearls, and brides either wore a front tiara/headband, or they wore a small comb in their hair where their veil was put into their hairstyle. Today our bridal hairpieces are available in soft golds, rose gold, silver, and even soft blushes! I see girls wearing side combs, weaving beautiful woven crystal pieces into their hair, going for the more boho styled flower crown, and even going with the traditional bridal tiara. It's safe to say that bridal headpieces are still "in", my friends.
Lately I've been stunned to hear brides mention to me that they can only wear one or the other: a veil, or bridal hairpiece.... What's up with that? I'm not sure when this myth came about, but it's actually more common for brides to wear both a veil & hairpiece, rather than choosing one or the other. I mean... Let's be serious, why wouldn't you want sparkle in your hair once your veil comes out?
Don't be fooled by wedding dress designer photos - they don't make headpieces and veils so most of them don't photograph their models with them. However, we love that Essense of Australia photographs their brides in what the majority of our brides walk down the aisle in: a veil, and a hairpiece.
Meghan & Brad, wedding at Dell-Lea
Today I'm going to highlight one of the more "unknown" wedding venues in NH, Dell-Lea. Located in Chichester, New Hampshire, Dell-Lea is situated on 236 private acres and offers a stunningly picturesque setting for your wedding or special event. Options are unlimited with many weddings held outside on their scenic grounds and receptions held inside the newly-renovated function hall or outside on your choice of two tent pads.
The historic post and beam function hall retains its historic flavor while offering all the modern amenities, including a private bride’s room, a full-service bar, large beautifully-tiled bathrooms, and a large dance floor.
Photo opportunities are as unlimited as your imagination, and include beautiful stone walls, a custom-made gazebo, a waterfall, open fields, ledge outcroppings, a country lane and several small ponds. One of our brides got married at Dell Lea, and I'm so excited to share these photos with you from Melissa Koren (Melissakoren.com) ! Meghan and Brad had the most perfect picturesque day for photos, and Meghan looked both beautiful and classic in her stunning Maggie Sottero dress. Enjoy!
