Kelley’s Wedding Dress Preservation in Connecticut

Kelley’s Wedding Dress Preservation in Connecticut

Bride Kelley and her groom said their vows at a beautiful venue on the water in Newport, Rhode Island last September.  Read more about her wedding and her GORGEOUS wedding gown in our Q&A below!


When was your wedding and where did it take place?

We got married on September 7, 2014 at the Castle Hill Inn in Newport, Rhode Island.  We couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather!

When did you know that your wedding dress was “the one”?

I purchased my stunning wedding gown at Vows Bridal Outlet in Watertown, Massachusetts.  I knew it was “the one” the moment I put it on!

What is your absolute favorite memory from your wedding day?

My favorite memory is walking down the aisle towards my future husband and seeing him smiling back at me.  In that moment, I didn’t even notice all of the other faces around us–it was just me and him.

Why did you want to get your wedding gown cleaned and preserved?

I would hate for such a beautiful gown to go to waste and not have the proper care it deserves!  I’m not yet sure what I plan on doing with it in the future–maybe I’ll sell it or pass it down to a future daughter.

Why did you decide to bring you wedding gown to a member of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists?

Orange Restoration Labs was recommended to me by a co-worker of mine!  Her friend had nothing but great things to say about her experience when she had brought her wedding gown to Sally, so we both took our gowns to get cleaned.  We were also very impressed by her excellent reviews online.
