Real Wedding // Fall-ing in Love

REAL WEDDING // ALYSSA + ERIC // 10.19.19 // INTERLAKEN INN – LAKEVIEW, CT

For our fellow Great Gatsby lovers out there, this “meet cute” couldn’t have been written any better by F. Scott Fitzgerlad himself! Similar to the allure around the man, the myth… Gatsby, Eric Goldberg was Alyssa’s Jay Gatsby! With Eric being head social chair at their college, Alyssa always heard her friends talking about a man named “Goldberg”, yet didn’t have the chance to meet him until one year later. The line in The Great Gatsby said it perfectly,

“He had one of those rare smiles…. that you may come across four or five times in life… It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself.”

– Nick

(F. Scott Fitzgerald, 48)


Once meeting there, Alyssa + Eric had an instant connection, which grew more and more over time, especially when they realized they both shared a deep love for dogs. Cut to eight years + two German Shepherds later, they finally got to exchange their vows in front of all their friends and family. We had the privilege of sitting down with our bride Alyssa + getting all the details of their big day… Take a peek!

<> TELL US ABOUT THE PROPOSAL! <>

“Eric’s proposal was beyond anything I had ever imagined for myself and was so personal in the best of ways. Unfortunately a few years ago my father passed away and he and I were extremely close. Knowing this, Eric decided to propose at my dad’s favorite spot – sculptured rocks in New Hampshire. Eric randomly selected a spot and knelt down on one knee over a beautiful waterfall. We later found photos of my dad in the exact same spot! It means the world that my dad was incorporated into the proposal and a part of the wedding in this way.”

THE INSPO!
The scene was set for the perfect wedding day with a festive nod to fall, from the burgundy + gold accents down to the pumpkins. There was a crispness in the air + a stillness to the lake, it was the ideal back drop for the exchange of vows.

It’s all in the details!

<> THOUGHTS WALKING DOWN THE AISLE <>

“I was definitely a bit anxious and concentrating hard not to trip on my gown, but mostly I was trying to take in the scenery and focus on my soon-to-be husband at the end of the aisle. I was very blessed to have my brother right by my side. He lives in Germany, but was able to fly in for the big day.”

THE CEREMONY!
All the fall vibes + what’s better than being on the water lined with fall foliage?!

<> RELIVING A MOMENT <>

“I would say the best moment was our first kiss as husband and wife. The nerves of the day and getting through the ceremony had ceased and we were officially married. There was no better feeling than hearing all the people we love most in the world cheer as we kissed. It was also amazing knowing the rest of the night would be spent celebrating and overall it was a moment I will never forget.”


“Our humans are married!”

<> WORKING WITH ALSW <>

“A Little Something White was the BEST bridal shop I worked with and I went to several places. Everyone was so kind and supportive and each time I walked in, I was greeted with huge smiles and tremendous support. One of the greatest things is they never made me feel like I was a nuisance no matter how many questions I asked. They even recommended I come try my gown on one more time before the big day because I was starting to over-analyze whether or not it was too tight. I had the best experience from start to finish with them. Planning a wedding is ridiculously stressful, but my gown and the entire process was one less thing I needed to worry about. A little Something White took care of everything and put my mind at ease.”

THE PARTY!

Let them eat cake!

<> ALYSSA’S ADVICE TO OTHER BRIDES <>

“You mean aside from going to A Little Something White?! I would suggest definitely starting the process as early as possible, especially if you have a busy work schedule. This way there is less pressure to find THE DRESS at each appointment. I also recommend taking a night before you fully commit to the dress because it can be very emotional when you are in the store, especially seeing yourself in a wedding dress for the first time. I am so incredibly glad I waited for my dream dress instead of buying one at the first store. I actually fell in love with my dress, but decided to go to Kleinfelds before committing because I knew they had the widest selection. While I was there, it became evident that my dress was the one I fell in love with at A Little Something White!”

Real Wedding // Guests Arrived to a Scottish Castle in a Double Decker Bus

Kirsty + Gery // 8.2.19
Dundas Castle // Edinburgh, Scotland

Scottish Castle wedding- A Little Something White Bridal -Darien, CT

For all of our fellow Hallmark movie lovers out there, this wedding is what our Hallmark loving “fangirling” is made of. This couple grabbed our attention with two words, Scottish… Castle, COUNT US IN… Let’s just say get ready to swoon! Meeting in Washington DC., + saying “I DO” on Castle grounds sounds like a great way to start a life together!

THE INSPO!

Kirsty + Gery knew they wanted to have their wedding in Scotland where the bride calls home, which meant they needed to deliver a true Scottish wedding for their guests. We’d have to say they definitely delivered! The day was something out of a story book, from the Scottish Castle to the Kilts, every details was met. In Scottish tradition the men wore the Kilts of their clans, and the bridesmaids wore Burgundy inspired by the brides heritage.

The Bride + her mother called the theme “Elegant Scottish Country Garden” with a whimsical floral lined ceremonial walk way + a lush archway. The charm was carried out every step of the way. Every aspect of the day was spectacular from the seed packet escort cards to the floral chandeliers dripping in greenery. The charm continued into the design of the invitations + stationary, both having a Beatrix Potter flair to them, which would certainly get the stamp of approval by the famed author herself.

Venues We Love: Wadsworth Mansion

VENUES WE LOVE // WADSWORTH MANSION

Since we opened our doors six + half years ago, we have heard our brides rave about the amazing venues they chose for their big day + the amazing vendors they have worked with, so we thought what’s better than streamlining the process for our future brides! Over the next few months we will be highlighting the venues we know both we + our brides have loved! From the opulent mansions to the intimate spaces.


Photography by VO Photography // ALSW Couple: Cara + Dan


For the first in this series we wanted to highlight the historic Wadsworth Mansion! Known for their timeless elegance + historic details, Wadsworth Mansion is the destination for brides + grooms alike! We had the privilege to sit down + chit chat with Jess (Director of Events), to get a behind the scenes look into what our brides can expect when choosing Wadsworth Mansion for their venue.


THE HISTORY BEHIND THE VENUE!

Built in 1900 for Coloney Clarence S. Wadsworth + his wife Katharine as a country summer residence. Wadsworth’s love of forestry + land conservation led him to hire the Olmsted Brothers, to oversee the design of their 500 acres, transforming the grounds into a working landscape. Years later to be sold from one owner to the next to just meet decay + vandalism, conservationist fought to repurpose + find a new uses of the estate for future public use. After many years of historic rehabilitation + modern amenities the venue we know + love came to life!


1934, THE CELEBRATION OF THE FIRST WEDDING WAS HELD AT THE WADSWORTH MANSION.


Q&A

WITH WADSWORTH
///

What would you say is the best feature of your venue the most couples love?

“We are a historic Mansion that only hosts one wedding a day. Couples who get married at the Mansion are looking for an experience beyond your standard wedding venue and our space encourages that kind of creativity. We have a wonderful indoor/outdoor event space where ceremonies are outside on the vista, cocktails and formalities on the terrace, dining in our Beaux Arts style ballrooms, followed by guests heading back outside for dancing under the stars.”

///

What should a couple expect when working with you?

“We love weddings at the Mansion and we are dedicated to providing each couple with a positive experience from start to finish.  We have a knowledgeable staff who is happy to assist with all the big and little decisions leading up to their wedding day!


HAVING A FORMAL SIT DOWN DINNER? NO PROBLEM, WADSWORTH CAN HOLD UP TO 200 GUESTS!

Q&A

WITH WADSWORTH
///

What are some foods favorites your couples choose for their wedding day?

“We have a list of caterers our couples can choose from and each has their own specialties offered. We see many delicious dishes served at the Mansion!”

///

Is there an inventory of décor (candle holders, lighting, vases etc.) that a couple can choose from? Or are they bringing in rentals?

The Mansion is a beautiful backdrop for a couples wedding day however many couples will choose to rent décor to enhance the experience. We do not have anything on site so couples can work with florists or rental companies to select décor that fits their vision.”


So many great spots around the grounds for intimate photos
!

Q&A

WITH WADSWORTH
///

What would you say is your “style”? ?

“We have a pretty versatile style at the Mansion – some couples host weddings with a more classic feel and some will go with a  boho vibe, and then we see everything in between!”

///

What does your venue offer?

“We offer exclusive use of our Mansion for 9 hours. The tables and chairs, and an Event Supervisor to coordinate with vendors and oversee the day from start to finish.”

Q&A

WITH WADSWORTH
///

What would you say was one of the most memorable moments your team has seen working a wedding?

“We had a bride surprise her groom with a helicopter entrance to the ceremony. That was pretty amazing!”

///

What is the back up for outdoor spaces if the weather is unpleasant?

“They can move everything inside the house or they can rent a tent for the terrace and host their ceremony, cocktails, and dancing.”

Q&A
WITH ALSW BRIDE LAUREN
///

What did you love most about working with A Little Something White Bridal?

A Little Something White was the first and last bridal boutique I went to. I was never fully excited about planning a wedding, so naturally I had no idea what I was doing. I had a budget that I really wanted to keep, and Liz picked out the most simple dress that I thought I was going to hate. Well, I felt like a princess, my mom cried, and I knew in that moment that it was going to be my dress. She also picked out my veil and headpiece. All and all, the best part about A Little Something White was that they made me comfortable and really did all the work for me. I felt beautiful!

///

What would you recommend to a new bride beginning her gown shopping?

To any new bride, per my experience, try on all the dresses! You go in loving one style and walk out with something way more suited for you.

THE DETAILS!
Find your succulent – find your seat.

Q&A!
WITH ALSW BRIDE LAUREN
///

How did you meet your husband?

I met my husband at a gym, he was a personal trainer + will take it to his grave that I approached him for his number. (That didn’t happen, he totally asked me for mine!) Either way, we hit it off, but the timing just wasn’t right at the time. Years later he asked me on a date. We went out for chicken parmigiana (haha) and I swear I fell in love with him immediately. The rest is history!!

///

How did he propose to you?

In January 2017, I dropped a 45 pound weight on my foot at the gym. It hurt like hell. I was put in a boot and couldn’t divulge in anything super fun for quite some time. Ahmad seemingly couldn’t wait to propose, so he got down on one knee while I was cooking dinner on a random Tuesday night. He then woo’ed me with is killer dance moves to “Lady in Red.”

THE PARTY!
Dining tables lined in lush garden roses, greenery + soft neutral linens!


Some tasty bites + first dance steps.

Q&A!
WITH ALSW BRIDE LAUREN
///

What was going through your mind as you walked down the aisle?

Walking down the aisle was just like I had imagined. I remember looking ahead at Ahmad and lovingly smiling back at him. It all seemed so surreal.

///

If you could go back and relive a moment from your wedding day, what would it be?

If I could relive any moment from my wedding day, it would probably be the first dance. That was a once in a lifetime moment that I will never forget, but would do 50 times over again. It was the best day of my life.

///

What did you love most about working with A Little Something White Bridal?

“I never once worried about my dress/alterations/veil/accessories. I knew everything was going to be perfect. Not only because of the environment but how easy ALSW was to work with. One vendor that caused me ZERO stress which is always a HUGE win when planning a wedding!”

///

What would you recommend to a new bride beginning her gown shopping?

Be open minded, my dress was completely what I said I didn’t want. I have a small chest and there was no way I wanted a strapless w/sweetheart neckline and that’s what Kim picked for me and it was AMAZING and everything I could have dreamed of.”

THE DETAILS!

Q&A!
WITH ALSW BRIDE NIKKI
///

How did you meet your husband?

“We actually went to high school together but weren’t friends! Then in college my best friend, is his best friends little sister. She told me Evan was having a party over summer break and so we went. Evan and I ended up being beer pong partners and won (no joke) 20 games of beer pong in a row. I didn’t really like him at first, I even had a boyfriend at the time. But then we continued talking, I broke up with my boyfriend and we’ve been together ever since!!”

///

What was going through your mind as you walked down the aisle?

“The whole 20 minutes before the wedding was so crazy because a major thunderstorm just rolled through and we had to move the ceremony from the field to inside the barn where my reception was. There was literally every emotion running through my mind. But it honestly was my favorite part of the entire night.”

THE PARTY!
Held in an old wood airplane hangar created a cozy backdrop for the guests to dance the night away. Is anyone else craving cake, or is it just us!


We love a mix of table sizes and shapes makes for a great flow + perfect way to get guests to mix + mingle more easily.

Q&A!
WITH ALSW BRIDE NIKKI
///

If you could go back and relive a moment from your wedding day, what would it be?

“Oh god, everything. Probably taking pictures with just Evan and walking down the aisle/saying our vows to each other.”

Accents of: Sequin, Lace, Tuileries & Beaded Straps!
Book your styling appointment to view the Hayley Paige Occasions line!

Request an appointment!

WHEN TO BUY?
Start shopping 5-6 months prior to the big day! Bridesmaids dresses take 12-14 weeks to arrive and give yourself a month for alterations! Keep in mind your stylist won’t place your bridal party order until every girl has paid and a size has been selected. This is to ensure the dresses are all cut from the same bolt of fabric!

AMSALE | Price point: $270-$320
Fabric Choices: Flat Chiffon, Crinkle Chiffon, Crepe, Jersey, Faille & Tulle!
Book your styling appointment to view the Amsale Bridesmaids line!

WHAT SIZE SHOULD I ORDER?
Finding the right size can be tricky, and we always base our recommendations off of measurements and how they correlate with a designer’s size chart. For instance, if a girls bust is an 8, her waist a 6, but her hip is a size 10. We recommend to order the 10, it is always best to go with the widest part of your frame and have the rest of the dress altered down!

Bridesmaids dresses are designed to be altered, so don’t fret if there is a jump in the measurements!

HAPPY SHOPPING LADIES!
