Ok, so I know that there is such a thing as National Puppy Day. And I know that there is such a thing as National Doughnut Day. There is even "National Hike With a Geek Day." (No joke. I'm totally serious. Google it. It exists.)But does anyone know if there is a National Brides Who Sparkle Day?? If there isn't, then there should be. I will be the first to sign the petition. Because you know why? It would basically be a day dedicated to the women who wear our garters!! Seriously, La Gartier brides are the BEST. They are some of the kindest, brightest, most creative, well-mannered and talented women out there, including our recent bride Heather Black. Heather was kind enough to send us a link to her wedding gallery last Wednesday, and you should have seen my face when I first saw these beautiful photos. (I almost dropped my phone while I was standing in line at Starbucks! No joke!) What I love about these photos is that they show you how utterly classy wedding garters can be when worn with just the right thing, by a woman who exudes class and elegance. Sound like you? Then we want you to be apart of our super sparkly La Gartier family!! You can click here to shop our collection. Happy La Gartier everyone! And Heather-- if you are reading this, then thank you for being YOU.La Gartier bride Heather Black slipping on her sparkling Joy garter and matching rhinestone toss garter.

There is nothing like starting a new work week with a brand new feature on one of the most popular wedding blogs in America. Seriously, if I had to pick between a brand new pair of Louboutins and a press feature as lovely as this, I would pick the press every single time. Suffice to say, I knew that this week was off to a great start when the uber-well-known wedding blog Elizabeth Anne Designs published a styled shoot that we participated in last month at Foxhall Resort.
The inspiration for the day was Classic Southern Romance...and I am not lying when I tell you that every detail that day was dripping with classic Southern charm!! Below are photos from the shoot, including my two favorites: the photos that show off our opal Hayley garter alongside Jimmy Choo's "Luna" heels. (gotta love a pair of sparkle heels that are inspired by the night sky!)
Below are photos from this peachy, over-the-top romantic styled shoot that just made our Monday feel like Christmas as well as a little bit about the shoot itself! Happy La Gartier everyone!
"Nestled approximately 30 minutes, but a world away, from downtown Atlanta is Foxhall Resort, and the tranquil setting provided a perfect backdrop for this classic and romantic inspiration shoot designed by Evermore Weddings & Events. A palette of slate blue, blush, peach, and green created a soft but elegant ambiance, and a blush Hayley Paige gown stole the show! Hacman Floral created a showstopping pastel bouquet to accompany the bridal look, which featured soft, modern hair and makeup from Elizabeth Sloan Beauty. The result is an absolute fairy tale! Beautiful details such as a rounded ceremony altar, elevated greenery centerpiece, and a custom peach cocktail by Lyght House Cocktails complete the scene. We are completely spellbound, as always, by the images from the incredibly talented Brandi of Alexis June Weddings!"

Last week, La Gartier was featured on the swoon-worthy blog of Munaluchi Bridal Magazine! And it wasn't just our sparkly wedding garters that were featured! No, it was an entire styled shoot curated by Angie Capri Photography that was put on blast as well as a short interview with the owner of La Gartier-- Sarah Dobson. (side note: that's me. It's me. Full disclosure- I'm writing this blog right now).To be completely honest, I am beside myself with enthusiasm for not only the feature, but also the chance to have our products captured so beautifully captured by Angie Capri Photography. For years, I have wanted to diversify our brand by including more brides of color into our modeled shoots, so this collaboration is everything La Gartier wanted, needed and more.(Passonate side note: If you live in the world of weddings like myself and so many of my bridal-obsessed colleagues, you most likely have noticed the total lack of diversity in photos, videos, and media in general. Something is telling me it is time to change that and there is only one way to make that happen: action. Ok, rant over.)I would like to personally thank both Angie Capri Photography and Munaluchi Bride for not only this post but for believing in our brand.
