We are so excited to get our copy of the The White Dress in Color for our bridal salon!!  We have had the pleasure of working with The White Dress by the Shore in Clinton, CT for almost 5 years now! We absolutely love their staff, and their vision of their beautiful bridal salon. We are blessed that accessories line, Haute Bride, continues to be a favorite among their brides and loved seeing our designs styled on models in their book.

About the authors… Written by our good friend, stylist, and bridal salon owner, Beth Chapman of the White Dress the Shore in Clinton, CT, along with Candice Dowling Coppola, and Carla Ten Eyck, three creative and entrepreneurial women of style, substance and charm. They are a trio of friends powering their successful businesses with imagination, a commitment to family and community, and a dedication to inspiring brides to think outside of the wedding binder. Based in Connecticut, and longtime veterans of the retail, event planning, design, art and photography industries, they share their expertise in their first book, The White Dress in Color.

About the book… Planning a wedding offers many beautiful opportunities that are just waiting to be discovered. To help inspire couples and ignite a creative spark, The White Dress in Color is filled with photographs that celebrate the creative spirit through beautiful bridal stories and innovative planning tips from industry experts. Follow each tale as it unfolds in gorgeous on-location photography, and then go behind the scenes where tips and ideas on color palette, textures, flowers, stationery, and, of course, the dress, are revealed. From rustic barn settings to industrial loading docks to tropical beaches, this journey covers thousands of wedding planning ideas in 200+ images and is an ideal source of inspiration for couples looking for a muse to foster creativity throughout their wedding planning process.

  • The White Dress: in color is a gift-sized book filled with colorful eye candy for the modern bride. It is a compilation of styled photo shoots meant to inspire couples as they embark on the journey of planning their wedding.
  • Beth Lindsay Chapman, Candice Dowling Coppola and Carla Ten Eyck are three creative and entrepreneurial women of style, substance and charm, dedicated to inspiring brides to think outside of the wedding binder. Longtime veterans of the retail, event planning, design, art and photography industries, they share their expertise in their first book, The White Dress: in color.
  • Each chapter of the book contains a section entitled, “Behind the Design” which has creative planning, fashion and photography tips, information about the inspiration for the shoot and a QR code, that, when scanned, will lead the reader to The White Dress: in color’s website. Each shoot has a designated page on the site that contains behind-the-scenes videos and images, style tips from Chapman, Coppola and Ten Eyck, and a list of credits and direct links to all of the companies whose products were featured in the shoot.
  • By featuring a same sex wedding and couples of various ethnic backgrounds, the book celebrates diversity, which is not always readily available in publications in the wedding industry.

The White Dress in Color was born out of collaborations between Beth Lindsay Chapman, a stylist and bridal boutique owner, Candice Coppola an event designer and Carla Ten Eyck, a wedding photographer. Chapman and Coppola were invited by Ten Eyck to style one of Ten Eyck’s wedding photography workshops.

 A quote by Beth, Candice and Carla on why they decided to publish the book.
“Carla uses these workshops to teach other photographers the art of shooting weddings and bridal details,” Chapman said. “In putting together the workshop photo shoots, the end results were really beautiful and we started to submit them for editorial.” Eventually the trio were hired by various bridal publications to shoot their cover images and editorial spreads.

Inspired by the Pinterest phenomenon and how brides enjoy “pinning” images on a webpage to create a unique wedding theme, Chapman, Coppola and Ten Eyck soon realized how fleeting some mediums were and the book was born. “The images and the content were so beautiful, but they were only seen for one issue of a magazine or fleetingly on a blog,” said Coppola, who heads Jubilee Events. “By publishing a book, we felt that the work could be preserved by having a long shelf life and become more of a keepsake for couples and industry professionals.”

One of our favorite designers, Hayley Paige, knocked it out of the park again this season! We were completely blown away by her collection from NY Bridal Fashion Week. Hayley chose a variety of textures and fabrics to complete this look such as cashmere lace, silk georgette and antique colored silk satin. She even blended her own color of tulle underlay for some of these beauties! Our favorite part? The dramatic breath taking beaded boleros and jeweled necklines created with the same elements and colors that we love to design the Haute Bride line with! The latest collection of Hayley Paige and Haute Bride accessories are going to be the perfection compliment to each other and we can hardly wait to get these into our Los Gatos Haute Bride Flagship Bridal salon in early 2014!!










Stay tuned for more 2014 Spring collection photos from our favorite designers at Haute Bride!  {photos courtesy of the Knot.com from bridal fashion week}
