Kenneth Pool Trunk Show June 10-12, 2011

Posted by on Jun 6, 2011 in Blog

We are excited to host a Kenneth Pool Trunk show this weekend. Especially since the creative director, Amsale Aberra was just featured on The View talking about wedding gown trends, last Friday! (Click on the link to see video of the episode). The Kenneth Pool line was started in 2003 and is known for it’s ball gowns, beadwork, and luxurious fabrics. Amsale, is the designer behind the Amsale and Christos lines as well and now she infuses her creativity into this label, helping ensure that the Kenneth Pool brides have the spotlight. “I am so excited to be designing this collection,” says Ms. Aberra, working in her New York Atelier where all of the gowns are designed and sewn. “I have always loved the KENNETH POOL bride and the fantasy she represents. My other collections are more about softness and simplicity, and designing KENNETH POOL allows me to express the more elaborate side of my personality.” As stated on their site: “This season there is a special emphasis on unique fabrications and couture details. Organza ruffles, sensuous silk jersey, and creamy duchesse satin dominate, whether artfully draped, elaborately beaded, or delicately trimmed with Swarovski crystals. Each gown encapsulates the essence of the collection: Ultimate Femininity combined with KENNETH POOL’s signature brand of sexy, opulent, unapologetic glamour.” Here’s a look at some of this season’s gowns. To make an appointment please call 410-484-4600! Hope we see you here this...

Robinson’s Bride: Lizzie Stieff Leonard

Robinson’s Bride: Lizzie Stieff Leonard

Posted by on May 26, 2011 in Blog

Lizzie Stieff Leonard is our first bride to be featured on our blog. Her mother, Andrea, has been in the wedding business for many years and is one of the most talented floral designers we’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. On April 23, 2011, Lizzie married, Alexander Lowell Leonard, AKA Bo at the George Peabody Library. Here’s their story and all the scoop on how their wedding came together! Lizzie and Bo met at Syracuse University during their sophomore year in college in 2005. Lizzie knew it was true love when Bo drove from his hometown in Missourri, to Ocean City to visit Lizzie for the weekend one summer during college. Fast forward to the fall of 2010 and Lizzie and Bo were both living and working in Baltimore. Bo and Lizzie had a tradition of going out to dinner to celebrate each other’s birthday and for Bo’s birthday this year they chose, or rather Bo chose, their favorite Italian restaurant, Sammy’s Trattoria to celebrate. To Lizzie’s surprise, they were seated in front of the fire place, the best seat in the house! As they finished their entrees, Bo began to rise out of his seat and bend over, Lizzie thought he had dropped his fork. But to her surprise he actually got down on one knee and proposed and of course she said “I do!” The night continued with an older couple across from them sending them a bottle of champagne, and the waiter surprising both Bo and Lizzie by saying “Buddy and Schultz have covered the bill”–Lizzie’s parents dogs. (Bo had gone to her parents earlier in the week to let them know he wanted to marry Lizzie and his plans for dinner at Sammy’s, so Lizzie’s dad surprised them both by calling ahead to say he wanted to pick up the bill). Lizzie’s mom, Andrea, has been in the wedding business for over 20 years and Lizzie says she was probably more eager than she and Bo were to get the ball rolling on the wedding plans. They immediately began looking at venues around Baltimore, but in the back of Lizzie’s mind the Peabody...

The Royal Wedding, A First Hand Account of Prince William and Princess Catherine’s Nuptials

The Royal Wedding, A First Hand Account of Prince William and Princess Catherine’s Nuptials

Posted by on May 17, 2011 in Blog

Alexa Sabelhaus Talamo and her mother, Melanie Sabelhaus, visited London on the occasion of the Royal Wedding. Not only was Alexa, Robinson’s bride, but also, she and her mother are close friends of Betsy and Alan’s. This is Alexa’s account of her time in London. My mom and I decided to go to London right after Kate Middleton and Prince William’s wedding date was revealed to the world in November. Timing worked out so well because we were planning a girl’s trip to celebrate my 30th birthday and it became very easy to decide on a location. We arrived to London Thursday morning, the day before the wedding, and hit the streets. We wanted to see all of the wedding hot spots before the crowds got there. We went to Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, the Goring Hotel where the Middleton Family was staying and finally the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, where the Rehearsal Dinner was located. We even went to a pub for Fish and Chips right by Westminster Abbey! London was energized. Every store, restaurant, street and pub was ready for the wedding of the century! Friday morning, the big day, we woke up and immediately turned on the news coverage of the wedding. We ordered room service, sat in our robes and watched everything unfold on TV; the 1,900 guests arriving Westminster Abbey, seeing Prince William and Prince Harry in uniform, and of course the reveal of Kate Middleton’s dress as she got out of the car. What a moment! She looked beautiful, radiant, just like a princess! After the ceremony ended at noon, mom and I put on our hats and hit the streets…again! We were trying to get a glimpse of the bride and groom during their first celebratory kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. My mom and I still don’t know how we did it, but we walked from the hotel towards Buckingham Palace passing blockade after blockade and ended up at a gate right across from Buckingham Palace. At around 12:45pm, the gate opened and thousands of people streamed in front of the Palace and all of us were able to see the...
