Dan and I are Married!!

The day couldn’t have been any more beautiful than it was on Saturday. We had a very small but spectacular wedding overlooking the ocean at Nobska Lighthouse with a few friends and family. Thanks to Maureen from Vintage in Vogue my dress was so beautiful and fit perfectly! I felt like a princess! Last week I went to Vintage in Vogue in Orleans to pick up my dress and Maureen was so happy and excited for me. She cares so much and is so passionate when it comes to making the perfect wedding dress for the bride! Dan and I plan on renewing our vows next year around the same time. I plan on wearing the same dress and having a big wedding so that all our friends and families can be there. I may even lose a few pounds and I am sure that Maureen will be able to fit my gown perfectly once again.











I love my wedding gown!!

Maureen from Vintage in Vogue Bridal Boutique is amazing! I went to the boutique the other day and tried on my one-of-a-kind wedding gown. It is so beautiful! I am so excited! In a couple of weeks I will have the final fitting. When I walked into Vintage in Vogue Bridal Boutique, I immediately felt excited and knew that I was in great hands. I am having so much fun preparing for our wedding and trying on dresses. With the way the world is today, it is so wonderful to have this opportunity to escape from it for a while inside a beautiful boutique. Vintage in Vogue is filled with gorgeous gowns and accessories. If you get the chance take a trip to Vintage in Vogue, 47 Main Street in Orleans. Maureen does fittings by appointment, so you get that special one on one attention.

Our Date is getting closer!

Dan and I are finalizing our wedding day plans. It is all coming together. I am super excited to go to Vintage In Vogue Bridal Boutique and try on wedding dresses with Maureen who will be designing and making my gown. A while back I went into the shop and picked out a few dresses and told Maureen about my wedding dress vision. I had forgotten about accessories! Vintage in Vogue has veils, vintage jewelry, gloves, purses and so much more. I can’t wait to come in and be fitted for my one of a kind wedding gown. Maureen does fittings by appointment so you get that special one on one attention. Vintage in Vogue Bridal Boutique, 47 Main Street in Orleans and vintageinvoguebridal.com

Feelings of excitement!

Dan and I are excited about moving forward with our new wedding date. The anticipation is definitely keeping us on cloud 9. One of things I am looking forward to the most leading up to our wedding is trying on my dress. I am so incredibly excited to see the one of a kind wedding dress designed by the fabulous Maureen and Jessica at Vintage in Vogue Bridal Boutique. Their Shop is now open for browsing!  Fittings are now available by appointment. I highly recommend Vintage in Vogue Bridal Boutique. Give Maureen a call at (508) 246-2559 and schedule your own appointment to create or find your perfect wedding dress. These are indeed strange and trying times but, we are looking ahead and staying positive. If you’re in the midst of planning your wedding, and it had to be postponed, hang in there!!!

Changed date means more time to prepare!!

Our original date is coming up in a week and although I feel a bit sad about having to postpone, I have more time to prepare and make our wedding day everything we want it to be. So, Maureen from Vintage in Vogue Bridal Boutique and I have been Face Timing. The other day I took a trip to Orleans and went to her shop to look at more dresses and talk about ideas for my one-of-kind wedding gown she is creating. Maureen is amazing as a seamstress and boutique owner, I am in awe of her talent and creativity. The Vintage in Voque Bridal Boutique is so beautiful and inviting inside. Did you know she has over 4 decades of dresses to choose from? This is what drew me to her boutique.  Without giving away too much info, I just may combine a little Vintage with Modern.  Do yourself a favor if you’re in the market for a wedding gown give Maureen a call (508) 246-2559 or visit her website and check out her boutique! http://www.vintageinvoguebridal.com/

lorizoomWe had to change our wedding date! 

Since major events have been postponed for the summer on Cape Cod, we had to make the decision to change our wedding date. I wasn’t happy about it, but we all know sometimes things happen for a reason. I know now I definitely have more time to focus on my wedding gown. Since I am not able to be fitted at Vintage in Vogue, Maureen and I have been Face Timing. We had a great time too!  Maureen showed me a few of the gowns that I had put aside and we talked about what I wanted. She truly is magical when it comes to designing! I showed her pictures of what I like and together we will design my gown, well, Maureen will be doing the amazing job of making my gown a beautiful one-of-a-kind dream! We’ll be Face Timing again next week to brainstorm more, and I cannot wait!


lorifoodDan knows I can cook!!

Since we are all practicing Social Distancing, Dan and I have been cooking a lot!  It’s almost like a little competition to see who makes the best dish.  Let me tell you, we both can cook!!!  Last night we made Vegetarian Enchiladas! Hey, don’t knock it until you try it!  I made my own re-fried beans with garlic, cumin, chili powder and lime juice.  So good! I grated sharp cheddar cheese and added a can of chili peppers. I made rice and seasoned it with butter, chili powder, cumin and the juice of the chili peppers, yum! Put all the ingredients in flour tortillas bathing in enchilada red sauce and topped it with more cheese and baked it. So, by the time the lock down is lifted, Dan and I will have some pretty amazing recipes to enjoy time and time again! However, I need to do a little social distancing from the fridge.. I have a wedding dress to try on soon.


loriwedding2Dan and I are still hopeful and moving forward with our wedding plans!

So, when I went to Vintage in Vogue in Orleans for the first time, Maureen showed me many dresses that I had an interest in. I was amazed by the selection of dresses she has from almost every decade. I liked the lace on one and the embroidery on another and the style of yet another dress. I thought I wouldn’t be able to have it all, but I was wrong. Maureen told me the magic of designing my own wedding dress was taking parts of the dresses and putting them together. Maureen’s eyes light up with so much excitement when it comes to her wedding dresses. I can’t wait to get started! I know that between Maureen and Jessica, I will have the most beautiful one-of-a-kind wedding dress.

LoriDan350These are strange times right now!

Dan and I are getting married and have hope that the Corona Virus Pandemic will be behind all of us.

In the meantime I am making plans and having my wedding gown designed and made by the amazing and talented duo of Mauren and Jessica over at Vintage in Vogue in Orleans.

When I went in I was pleasingly impressed. The Bridal Boutique at Vintage in Vogue is beautiful. I can’t wait until my next visit when I get to try on my wedding gown.
