A CHAT WITH THE WHITE DRESS
In this mini video feature, join NwWU hosts, Crystal Genes Photography and Angela Holm Photography as they chat with Carly Johnson, manager of The White Dress.
When I visited The White Dress to help our bride choose a dress for this feature, I was instantly in love. It is such a beautiful store, and everyone was so friendly and helpful. What really won me over were the private bridal suites. Each suite has a seating area for your friends and family, as well as a private dressing area. I think it definitely makes for a more special experience!
They carry a wide assortment of dress styles, and also feature some local designers. We ended up choosing a dress that was designed by local couture artist Stephanie Mai. And it is a stunner! All of her dresses are one of a kind, and so unique and beautiful.

CARLY’S TIP FOR ALL COUPLES
“Don’t chase the dragon!”, says Carly. “When you know, you know.” She says a lot of brides seem to get caught up in the emotion of finding the perfect dress, and tend to want to keep looking even after they’ve found it. She says don’t do it! When you find the perfect dress, all it means is that you’re done shopping for it.
