“I always imagined myself in a flowy, boho-style dress, but as I began my search for the dress, I started to realize that I wanted something more form-fitting and classic,” says Real Chic Bride, Chelsea Mandler, who ultimately set her heart on a stunning Marchesa lace gown.

“[While at Chic Parisien], I tried on a couple of dresses, and the Marchesa was actually the last one in the bunch,” adds Chelsea. “As soon as I opened the dressing room doors to show my mom, mother-in-law and best friend, the hunt was over. We all hugged, cried and were in immediate agreement that this was it. I guess it’s true what they say – save the best for last!”

Chelsea (Birman) Mandler and Nathan Mandler wed on December 21, 2013 on the outdoor terrace of the Epic Hotel in downtown Miami. Surrounded by family and friends, the couple exchanged vows during an evening ceremony. The stunning downtown Miami skyline served as the backdrop.

For the reception, which was held indoors, Chelsea wanted it to evoke a classic and elegant feel, but still reflect her bohemian taste. “I chose all white flowers mixed with manzanita tree branches and moss to give my reception a rustic-chic look.”

Describing her favorite moment, Chelsea says, “Aside from saying the words I do to the love of my life, I would have to say my favorite moments would have to be my first look with Nate, hugging my parents right before they handed me off to my husband-to-be, seeing my bridesmaids for the first time in my dress and our wild after poodle-party!  Nate’s brothers also did an unbelievably hilarious speech followed by a performance that was so special.”

Congratulations once again, Cheslea & Nate! We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!

When we first met our Real Chic bride, Katie, there was no denying that she has an impeccable sense of style. As she described the couple’s plans for their big day, from the flowers (a country-inspired bouquet brimming with pastels) to the venue (Vizcaya Museum and Gardens), we knew that it would be an event no one would soon forget. Therefore, from the moment she walked into our store, we were on a mission to find her a gown that was equally, if not more, breathtaking.

On January 25, 2014, surrounded by family and friends, Kate said “I do” wearing a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown, featuring a strapless sweetheart pleated bodice and rose embroidered A-line skirt. Katie absolutely stunned in a gown that seemed as though it was designed and tailored exclusively for her.

Several months later, we weren’t the least bit surprised to learn that Weddings Unveiled Magazine featured her wedding in a stunning four-page spread for its Spring 2014 issue. It was truly a picture perfect celebration, and we are thrilled to have been a part of it.

We extend our heartfelt congratulations to the newlyweds, Katie & Rob!
