Creating Memories, One Dress at a Time

Posted by: Addison Viani

Creating a lasting memory is a goal both Old Edwards Inn and Joan Pillow share. Joan Pillow, of Joan Pillow Bridal Salon, has been contributing to these lasting memories our brides have made with her devotion and keen eye for fashion. Joan has led many brides here at Old Edwards through the process of discovering the perfect wedding dress specially suited for our venues.

Silhouettes, fabrics and necklines are details to consider, but where the “I do’s” take place is one of the most important components during the dress selection process. It is beneficial to choose a venue or at the least have an idea of a location before slipping in and out of numerous wedding gowns. Venue location dictates the style of the dress and will ultimately narrow down the options.

Our past brides at Old Edwards have left Joan’s salon having had their visions come to life. Several designers fill the walls of her salon, but our brides tend to be drawn to specific looks and styles. I asked Joan to describe the look of the perfect gown worn at our Farm venue; she replied with, understated elegance.  An understated elegance could not be more fitting to describe weddings at Old Edwards.

Joan shared with me the best designers for an Old Edwards wedding and I had the pleasure of photographing a few of the popular styles worn at our venues. Each designer offers brides a diverse selection of fabrics, styles and custom detailing to achieve that simple, yet elegant look.

Joan’s challenge is to stay ahead of the ever-changing dress trends, but the reward of developing cherished relationships with her clients’ continually trumps those challenges. She continues to help our brides discover their dream wedding dress and we continue the fulfillment of dreams here at Old Edwards.

With the help from the finest in design and service, Joan Pillow Bridal Salon and Old Edwards Inn are a winning combination that can make your special day a lasting memory.
