Featured Wedding: Angel + Jerry


I met Angel at a Miss Ruby Bridal Boutique styling night. She brought in her dress and knew she wanted to make a statement. We tried different belts, hairpieces, veils and we didn't have that "A-HA" moment. As we started browsing gowns in the store, Angel realized her dream dress was at Miss Ruby, not the first one she bought. As many brides want to stay on a budget, she felt she purchased the first dress for the price vs getting what she wanted. 

She ended up getting her dream dress, a WTOO by Watters dress in champagne. I couldn't imagine her in ANYTHING else. I always tell brides, you will be able to see the emotion through pictures for years to come, so make sure you get the dress you want and cut corners elsewhere. 

Angel and her mom had their hand in this entire DIY wedding. Jerry even hand folded all of the birds... can you believe it!?!? They look so incredibly happy and the decor is beyond anything I could have ever imagined.

Featured Wedding: Kate + Mike


Kate is honestly one of the best brides I have worked with. I LOVE all of my Jaxie brides, but Kate had a vision... and it involved a Belt Change! I started with Kate at Miss Ruby with a styling appointment and helped her choose the perfect gown by Wtoo by Watters: "Mimi Gown". Once we perfected the classic style she was going for, we picked out 2 belt options for her. She got married at the Milwaukee Art Museum and her reception was at The Pfister Hotel, so she wanted more of a glam look for later in the night. I had SO much fun working work her... check out a close up of the Olga Belt (SOLD OUT):


And for her belt change, she chose the Emmy Belt:

Featured Wedding: Kelly + Rob


Kelly and I have been best friends since 1st grade. Yes, that is 25 years of friendship! We experienced grade school, high school AND college together. I am blessed to have such an amazing friend by my side almost my ENTIRE life experiencing many firsts together. 

When the time came for Kelly to get married, of course I said yes to standing by her side on this very special day. I had the honor of tying on her belt before her walk down the aisle and also creating all of the hairpieces for the bridesmaids as well as boutineers for the men. 

The day couldn't have been more perfect, we were with our closest friends and family in the most amazing setting... Punta Cana! 
Here is our 6th grade picture I found a few weeks before the wedding:





Here is the "Jasmina" Jaxie Belt Kelly rocked on her big day:

Featured Wedding: Kristina + Dimitri


Photography By: M Three 

Kristina contacted me after checking out my website and saw a custom belt I made for another bride and just HAD to have one for her big day. The belt she is wearing is the Elizabeth and Renee Belt combined. This combo really pulled her whole look together. BEYOND stunning!

Here is a great detailed shot....
I have to laugh... In my mind while I was putting the collage together, I thought in this picture Dimitri is thinking: 
"WOW that belt totally completes your bridal look"

Featured Wedding: Lyndsey + Eric

There are certain days where I am caught off guard emotionally. It was this picture that made me shed a tear:
Seeing that final touch of the tying of her Victoria belt got to me. I am truly blessed that brides choose my vision for their wedding day. I am able to do what I love everyday because of the support of not only the bridal stores that carry my line, but also because of the fabulous customers!

Lyndsey & Eric's wedding was a pinner's dream! Check out a few of the photos

Featured Wedding: Jennifer + Derek


Jennifer was one of those people who you meet and just feel an instant connection with. She was so incredibly sweet and new what she wanted. I actually met her for the first time at Miss Ruby Boutique in Milwaukee. A couple times a month I work as a stylist at the store to help brides accomplish their ideal bridal style. I meet with a bride to help them find the perfect dress and accessories. 

I tell Jennifer's story to many brides who are unsure about pulling the trigger on purchasing a dress they truly love the first time they have it on. She knew what look she was trying to achieve and ended up buying the first and ONLY dress she tried on. She wanted a classic old hollywood glam look that she definitely achieved. For her Jaxie hairpiece, she wanted the softness of the feathers but also a touch of sparkle as well. She nailed her vision and couldn't look more gorgeous!

Are you apprehensive about starting your dress shopping process? Call Miss Ruby and set up an appointment with me and I promise to make the process fun and painless! 414.755.2900.

Featured Wedding: Lizzy + Todd



Lizzy knew exactly what she wanted her Jaxie bridal hairpiece to look like before our first meeting. She came across a brooch she fell in love with and bought it on the spot. When we met, she told me to do my magic and create a hairpiece for her big day. I created a soft flower that added the extra feeling of glam and it looked amazing on her. Aren't these pictures so sweet?

Featured Wedding: Leah + Jake


I met Leah at a bridal show and through a mutual friend/vendor who told her "you have to check out Jaxie!" We hit it off from our first meeting. Both of us were on the same page of her overall style for her wedding. She wanted a sparkly statement piece for herself and for her girls so we decided on doing cuffs! The thing I love about the cuffs is that your girls WILL truly wear them again. I have so many brides and bridesmaids tell me how much they love their cuffs and pair them with cocktail dresses or with jeans and a blazer. 

Here is another great closeup shot:

You can pick your own ribbon as well as your own brooch. Once you make your purchase, I will provide you with pictures of current brooch stock to choose from. Contact me with any questions and for more info on how to order!

Featured Wedding: Nicole + Zachary

Photography By: Milwaukee John Photography

Nikki was a big Jaxie fan from the start of our everyday accessories. So when she got engaged, she knew she wanted to have Jaxie bridal involved in her wedding. She wanted a touch of black in her hairpiece but something soft. I decided to do a black and white speckled feather to bring all of her colors together. I love seeing action shots from the big day because it truly shows the love between husband and wife. SO. SWEET.

Shoes. Shoes. Shoes.

I know many of my brides ask me after they find their dress and accessories, where do I go next for shoes? First I always recommend going to local businesses for shoes, one of my faves? (Shoo) downtown Milwaukee on Broadway.

Also I am highly obsessed with Polyvore and recommend them to ALL of my brides. Polyvore is an amazing site for all things fashion. They scour the web and pull items from MANY different trusted online retailers. The great thing about the site is that you can choose many variables while looking for your shoes... including: price, type, color and brand. You can also have the site alert you when your particular fave shoe goes on sale. What more could you ask for?

Here are some options that immediately caught my eye:


















ULTIMATE SPLURGE:
Christian Louboutin "Very Richie" $3995... A girl can dream, can't she?


Out of all the selections, I still think Badgley Mischka has THE best options of shoes for the big day! The shoes are SO dainty and absolutely complete your wedding look. 

Make sure to stop by shopjaxie.com AND become a fan of Jaxie on facebook to find the best accessories to go along with your wedding day shoes! If you are looking for custom accessories, I am your girl... also check out my etsy site for ready made pieces. 

Happy shopping!
