Magnifique Boutique Grand Opening


























On Friday June 5th we had our grand opening event. Many people from the local wedding and event industry came by to see the boutique, along with many friends and family. We all enjoyed champagne and hors d' oeuvres while meeting new friends and of course checking out the new shop and all of the gorgeous gowns.

Even though we had some liquid sunshine and didn't get to fully enjoy the gardens we still had a great time and look forward to our next event!

Thank you to everyone that came by to support our new business!

Cheers,

Jennie & Scott
Owners

Lila Couture


We have just received three new gowns from Lila Couture and they are beautiful! One is a satin mermaid gown with beadiong at the bottom and pleating at the bust. The next is a classic, elegant A Line gown with a lace up back and the third is fit for a princess. A full toulle ballgown with crystals and a gorgeous long train! Come and check out these new gowns along with all of the other amaing gowns we have here at the boutique!
