We’re going to keep you in suspense for a while longer on seeing Samantha’s gown, but since Jodi of Ben and Jodi Photography did accompany Samantha to document the process, we wanted to tell you all about Samantha’s experience with our Gown Designer, Laura Lynn Smith of A Bride’s Design.

“Working with Laura from A Brides Design was truly a personalized experience. I wasn’t forced into a dress off-the-rack. Rather, each and every element that I envisioned my wedding dress having was taken into consideration.”

A Bride’s Design isn’t your typical bridal salon.  Nestled into part of a quaint, light blue colonial, A Bride’s Design is built for brides’ comfort.  From the moment you walk in to A Bride’s Design, the atmosphere is relaxing.  From the shabby chic wallpaper and delicate detailing of the shop with its muted color palette of blues and golds, the space is warm, well-lit, and inviting — a truly high-end, intimate salon experience, with none of the pressure.

Laura schedules consultations by appointment, only, to lessen the pressure even more, allowing each bride to have the time to thoughtfully peruse the shop at her own pace, because — really — there’s lots to see and consider in this small boutique!

Samantha loved the experience of working with a custom designer, too.

Laura and Samantha even chatted about some of the gown elements Samantha already knew that she likes — with the help of Pinterest, of course!

“It’s an amazing feeling knowing that my dress will be one-of-a-kind and unique — like me!”

We can’t spill all the details about the dress, but here’s a little hint, from Samantha:

“I chose a dress that is quite modest. The overall ‘frame’ of the dress is perfect. To make it a little more appealing, we are removing a few layers of fabric and adjusting the body shape of the dress to help flatter mine! I’m excited for my next fitting!”
