Less than ten weeks ago, Padgett walked into The Bridal Finery to find her wedding dress. I sat down to learn more about her and Greg. Instantly, I could tell this is a woman with a sophisticated style. My mind started to wonder toward the Carolina Herrera and Oscar De La Renta dresses. Within a few dress try ons she narrowed her search down to two Carolina Herrera dresses. Both suited her quite well. I pinned her hair up so she could see the full look. She went with the strapless gown providing her more flexibility to hug and dance. The other Carolina gown was beautiful on her but restricted her arms. Next came the dress fittings. Our seamstress Sarah encouraged her to wear the dress as it was designed. The dress came with a detachable skirt and can be worn several ways.
On her wedding day, I had a chance to stop by and assist with the dress. I was able to see the beautiful floral decor and all the work that went into her Winter Park wedding. Each little detail was an extension of Padgett’s chic style. So elegant but welcoming, just like her. I don’t think I’ve ever seen calmer bride. When I first saw her she was checking in and asking if anyone needed anything. She offered me champagne! I was tempted for sure but I needed to get back to the store to pack up and head to Chicago for a bridal retreat.
I’m so fortunate I had the opportunity to be Padgett’s bridal stylist. I mean look at this wedding! Such a dream! Wishing Padgett and Greg so much happiness and a beautiful life together. Thank you Padgett for trusting me to be your stylist and supporting TBF! Xo, Tali
