A little bit about proposal: David and I got engaged the day before valentines day at my parents’ house. We fell in love early in our relationship and he truly swept me off my feet! I feel he is my best friend; he always keeps me smiling and laughing! He is selfless by always putting my needs before his own and for that I am always trying to find ways to spoil him. I am truly blessed to have him as mine!
Jennifer’s search for the perfect wedding gown: I began at The White Gown, fell in love with “The” dress – Enzoani Fabi, but continued to search at other places. I was hesitant in thinking it was that easy to find the perfect dress. After several months (and several other bridal stores) I returned to The White Gown, tried my Fabi on again and cried! That was it – that was MY dress! The Staff at the white gown always made me feel such at ease; they tended to my every need and concern. They did not let me down at all!
Fave moment on her wedding day: My favorite moment of my wedding was seeing my husband at the end of the aisle at Church and once he grabbed my hand, he didn’t let go for the rest of the ceremony. My other favorite moment was during the reception, all our family and friends dancing with our band, having an amazing time. I was SO happy to see everyone enjoying themselves, the music and celebrating our love!
A bit about your vendors: All of our vendors were great, honest and worked hard into making our day fabulous.
Bridal Gown: The White Gown (That’s us!!) A perfect experience for my perfect dress! Thank you!

About Renee and Pete:
Pete and I met in Texas. I was still in college and Pete was active duty in the Army.. We met through mutual friends, and were admittedly a little shy about getting into a relationship. But, once we started dating, we just never stopped. Six years later, we were living together in New York when Pete proposed to me on a weekend trip at the Mohonk Mountain House in early December.
Renee’s search for her perfect gown:
I was never one to obsess over wedding dresses, but I did always know I wanted something classic and romantic– and gorgeous! Turns out, I didn’t really have to look all that hard. I had been to the White Gown once before, to help a friend with her final fitting and taking her dress home. After browsing the site and blog, I came across the Valentine’s Day Love Story contest, and immediately entered. I continued browsing online, and didn’t think about it again– until I won second place! I didn’t find the perfect dress right away, but each dress I tried was more promising than the last.. Then, on my third trip, the very last dress I tried on was the Enzoani I was meant to wear. My mother and sister where there with me, and the choice was unanimous..
Renee’s Favorite Moment:
One of my favorite moments was our pinata hitting out in the venue’s coutryard. The groom and I each took turns before opening it up to the kids. By the time we hung up the second pinanta, the adults were getting in on the action. I have fantastic pictures of each of my Bridesmaids, in heels, taking a whack at a paper mache star.
Another favorite moment was eating dinner at the reception. It was so nice to have a “normal” moment together after the ceremony. Family and friends would come up and say hi, and we were both a little anxious, but it was so nice to sit at a table alone, in the front of the room and just take everything in for a moment.
A bit about Renee and Pete’s vendors:
My vendors were each phenomenal in there own way. The Federation provided the perfect backdrop, the Salt Lick wowed our guests with their food, and the day only came together with the help of Ruthie, my coordinator, and her team. My photographer and videographer captured all the right moments to create a beautiful story we can look back on forever. The cakes, the flowers, the bar staff, the music– it was all perfect for our day.

We were perusing the blogs today (as we always do!) and stumbled upon a post from Style Me Pretty featuring Enzoani’s gorgeous Fatima gown. And because we love this gowns detailed lace bodice, dropped waist and full skirt, we couldn’t help but repost. Between the stunning gown, and the romantic Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario setting, this wedding is pure perfection. And we love that the bride put her maids in ivory! Hope you enjoy seeing this beautiful gown on a real bride!
Make your appointment to try on Fatima today!

Well, I’m back to round out the awards season with a wrap up from the movies’ (and fashion’s!) biggest night: The Academy Awards. There were some clear trends throughout the evening – a lot of white gowns, red gowns, one shouldered frocks, long sleeved stunners, peplum skirts and metallic accents to name a few! I’ve pulled together a few of my absolute favorite gowns from the night and have set them side by side with some of our own beauties from The White Gown. What were your favorites of the evening?
My favorite trend of the evening was the peplum skirt. Michelle Williams wore an amazing Louis Vuitton coral gown and Tina Fey looked stunning in a midnight blue Carolina Herrera gown. I chose to pair the peplum styles with an Enzoani stunner, and while it may not technically be a peplum, the natural waisted bodice and flared skirt of this Enzoani gown has a similar shape overall. Love!!
Next up is the always-beautiful Angelina Jolie – she wore an amazing Atelier Versace gown. When I saw this gown, I immediately thought of our layered organza David Fielden gown – it features similar asymmetrical draping and a flattering natural waistline. In short, I’m obsessed.
I noticed a lot of sleeved options – both cap sleeves and long sleeves – on the red carpet, which I love. Check out the amazing silhouettes on JLo (in Zuhair Murad), Meryl Streep (in Lanvin) and Octavia Spencer (in Tadashi Shoji).
I can’t help but think of our amazing Lusan Mandongus gown that features a similar cinched waist and gentle cap sleeve.
Emma Stone was another favorite of mine Sunday evening in Giambattista Valli. I love this high neckline on her – even if it was similar to Nicole Kidman a few years back! The gown is also reminiscent of our Alyne Bridal gown, Fiona that features a high neckline and natural waist.
I was pleasantly surprised to see Natalie Portman in vintage Christian Dior (another red gown!!). The silhouette is classic and lovely – just like our Alyne Bridal gown, Audrey.
Milla Jovovich’s Ellie Saab gown was yet another favorite of mine (sorry - I had a lot of favorites!). The beautiful one-shoulder detail along with the beaded draping was nothing but stunning. While the fabrics are different, the draping and shoulder detail reminded me of our new Soft by Rosa Clara gowns. Gorgeous!
A structured bodice and textured skirt goes a long way. Take a look at Jessica Chastain (in Alexander McQueen) and Kristen Wiig (in J Mendel), for example. And then take a look at our gorgeous Maria Karin gown that combines the best of both!
Another jaw-dropping moment was Stacy Keibler’s amazing Marchesa, metallic gown! Between the gorgeous color and rosette draping, I was immediately reminded of one of our favorite David Fielden gowns at the salon.
And finally, I just had to include Gwyneth Paltrow’s Tom Ford dress and cape. I didn’t pair this with a gown in the store simply because every bride can achieve this look with a cathedral veil! A statement indeed – what’s not to love about this look?
What was your favorite look of the night? Will you wear an Academy Awards-inspired gown? We’d love to hear!

As a continuation of our new product series, this week we’re featuring Enzoani’s beautiful gown, Grace. This gown features a strapless sweetheart neckline with a detachable belt and beaded brooch. The very full a-line skirt also has an amazing lace overlay which adds a nice dimension to the gown. I put this on a future bride recently and immediately fell in love! If you’re looking for a full ball-gown style for your big day, Grace may very well be the perfect fit!
I love love this gown with an elbow length beaded or pencil edge veil. A gown like this also needs an impressive venue – perhaps like one of the locations below!
Four Seasons, New York
Grand Central Terminal, New York
Oheka Castle, Long Island, New York

It’s a New Year and what better way to celebrate than by featuring one of our MANY new gowns? Today we’re showcasing the stunning Ginger from Enzoani’s 2012 collection. This chiffon sheath gown features a natural waistline, bateau neckline and lace detailing along the sleeves and hemline. How can you not love this stunning gown?
We love the idea of taking this look to the next level by adding a vintage hat just like this one from Sara Gabriel.
There is a beautiful elegance about the gown, so we can totally picture this on chic, urban bride in New York City. Venues like modern, industrial spaces would present a unique contrast to this vintage look.
