Drop in to check out these beauties in person between 11 am and 6 pm Tuesday through Friday or call us to make a Saturday appointment!

Priscilla chose “In Bloom” at last year’s Ivy & Aster trunk show.  I remember how excited she was to put on the dress when it arrived at the store a few months later–it was stunning on her.  Then I saw pictures of the wedding and wow!  Gorgeous dress for a gorgeous bride.  Congratulations, to the happy (and lovely) couple!
