Once again we had the opportunity to organize the St. Jude Benefit Ball. The ball was held on November 1, 2014 at Benton Hall Center for the arts, in Wilkesboro, NC. The ball was a very successful collaborative effort from all of the event sponsors, with a total amount of $2622 being raised and donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. We have so much fun at the ball every year and plans are already beginning for the 2015 event!

We were so excited to take part in a styled photo shoot that was organized by Waterhouse Studios a few months ago. It was most assuredly a team effort, and involved many talented vendors that we would highly recommend to anyone planning a wedding or other special event! Contrary to belief you do not have to go far to find quality weddings vendors, we have some of the best right here in Wilkes!

Store owner, Kelly has been in the bridal industry since 2000, when at the ripe old age of 20 she opened her first little store front on a wing and a prayer. She is a certified wedding planner (no, she does not plan weddings), and everything she knows about bridal and formal wear has come from, gut instinct, trial and error, and watching LOTS of What Not to Wear.
