Slate blue, fresh florals, gold accent colors, and garden views are the latest trend for a simplistic, dreamy wedding, so naturally we had to do a fabulous shoot to showcase our favorite Kennedy Blue dresses, Allison and Cameron, in action!
In this gorgeous Mrs. & Mrs. shoot, our models Andrea, Alyson, Claire, and Chelsea got wedding ready at the gorgeous DoubleTree by Hilton Park Place hotel. From the event room, featuring fresh greenery and the most perfect natural lighting, to the beautiful outdoor cherry blossom trees, this venue was absolutely perfect for our dreamy styled shoot!
In addition to featuring our Kennedy Blue dresses, we also worked with The Wedding Shoppe, Inc. to showcase this gorgeous Maggie Sottero wedding gown! With the intricate beading and the ballgown shape, this dress was perfect for a classic, yet chic look.
The bridesmaids also recieved personalized gifts from their bride that included fun tumbler cups, a new set of shades, and customized stationary. Talk about bridesmaid gift must haves!!
We absolutely loved working with the amazing vendors listed below and beautiful models, all of which made this shoot a success! Keep scrolling to see all the photos from this Doubletree wedding, captured by Mahonen Photography.

Taking Your Measurements
For the most accurate measurements, do not measure over your clothing. Your measurements should be taken while wearing undergarments similar to the ones you will wear with your dress. The measuring tape shouldn’t be pulled too tight or have too much slack, and should always be parallel with the floor.
Wedding apparel is typically sized differently than retail clothing, so keep in mind that it’s not uncommon to find yourself requiring alterations.
Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).
While standing up straight, bend at the waist to one side. Take the measurement where the natural crease happens in your side. This should be a few inches above your belly button. Stand up straight and do not “suck in” when taking this measurment.
Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.
Compare these three measurements to the Kennedy Blue size chart above. It is very important that you order the largest size that corresponds to your measurements. For example, if your bust measures 40.5” (size 12), your waist measures 31” (size 10) and your hips measure 41.5” (size 8), we advise that you order a size 12, and get your dress altered down to custom fit your body.
Depending on the fabric, a dress can be altered down up to 2 full sizes, but can be very difficult to let out as there is only about .5 inch of fabric to do so at the seams.
