Friday Favors with Claire Pettibone

Claire Pettibone Summer 2013 Wedding Dresses

Happy Friday lovelies! Bridal Market was a few weeks ago, so I thought I’d share some of my favorite gowns from Claire Pettibone. Her Spring/Summer 2013 Collection is called “An Earthly Paradise.” I love all the embellishments, sun drenched colors and breeziness of these dresses – perfect for a modern goddess. :)

Jason + I are off to Hawaii (the Big Island + Maui) for the next week – a sort of babymoon if you will! :) Really looking forward to some relaxing, great food + exploring. We’ll be sure to share our finds once we return (and you can follow our adventures on Instagram – user name greenweddingshoes). If anyone has any favorites or must see’s on either island, we’d love to hear! We are really looking forward to returning to Maui since that is where we got engaged. :)

Photography Deal: Cali + Colorado based photography company Happy Confetti Photography is offering a special of $500 off your wedding photography for the next 10 days. Get the info here!

  1. This was one of my favorite collections during Bridal Fashion Week 2013. I love that there is some use of color within the delicate detailing of the lace.

  2. Thank you for the shout-out, GWS! We are so thrilled to be a part of your preferred wedding artists! XOXO

  3. wait, babymoon? did I miss some news or not yet? either way, enjoy hawaii! I just got back from kauai on my first family vacation since we had a baby (almost 2 years ago!) hawaii is the perfect place for babymoons and to take a baby on vacation :)

  4. The name of the collection says it all, it is about elegance, diaphanous looks, dazzling beauties!

  5. I am such a big Clare Pettibone fan. I love those streamers flowing off the back of the model’s shoulders. Exquisite!
