Real Wedding Wednesday

Amanda and Mike Nixon

Mike fell in love with Amanda, the receptionist, on her first day with the company! He proposed to her around two years later, making sure to include all of her favorite candy in the process! For these two introverted soul mates, a small wedding with their closest family and a few friends was exactly what they wanted. Most of the guests flew in from Ohio and Georgia to celebrate Amanda and Mike’s special day. A family style dinner followed the ceremony where the bride and groom were able to join them instead of having a head table, which was really important to them.

Fashion Friday

Sneak peek at Junko Yoshioka's spring 2013 Bridal Collection.

Junko Yoshioka spring 2013 Bridal Collection was inspired by the fluttering feathers of spring with the collection of gowns echoeing nature with lightly textured fabrics, appliquéd lace details and an abundance of layering creating modern gowns with movement and grace. Classic shapes were enhanced by exquisite fabric choices and embellishments. Lace is coupled with intricate bead work and introduced through blush tone gowns.

{About Junko Yoshioka} 
Junko Yoshioka redefines wedding glamour with her stunning collection of lavish contemporary gowns that stray from traditional bridal standards. Junko Yoshioka studied fashion design at one of the most prestigious schools in Japan. Her signature elegant and modern designs are often embellished with avant garde materials such as wools and leathers. The juxtaposition of unlikely fabrics with elegant silk and satin makes for an unexpected and beautiful pairing.

Junko’s inventive design sense was highly revered by some of Italy’s top fashion houses to create her “neo-classic” RTW looks for the European market. Junko Yoshioka’s feminine silhouettes in bridal and evening wear can be found at Saks Fifth Avenue, Mark Ingram Bridal Atelier and at the Junko Yoshioka exclusive bridal boutique in Manhattan.
