Since 1982, Pegeen® has helped thousands of brides walk down the aisle. Three (3) of those brides’ weddings from 2010 have been chosen as Pegeen®’s Weddings of the Year, with photographs, vendors and background stories. A summary of that information is here and detailed information and almost 200 photos of these special weddings are posted on Pegeen.com. Since choosing the Wedding(s) of the Year (and Weddings of the Month) since 2007, each wedding is reviewed thoroughly by Pegeen wedding experts when searching for the winners we think deserve this recognition, beginning with the personal stories of the bride and groom, to everything from the location, special stories provided by the wedding party, the vendors chosen, and, finally, how each wedding comes together on that special day to make each of these events remarkable in their own unique way. Pegeen has provided over 830,000 originally designed and customized flower girl dresses, ring bearer suits and other garments for weddings and other formal events involving children for 29 years.

Flower Girl Dress of the Year

We walked a winding path lined with white hydrangeas in old brown whiskey barrels. The girls had small handled barrels and tossed flowers for the bride. We all wore dark brown riding boots which looked cute and quirky with all 22 Pegeen dresses!

Pegeen®, which designs, customizes and sells flower girl dresses and other formal wear for children exclusively online as Pegeen.com, has just announced their selection for the Grande Wedding of the Year 2010-2011, as well as designating two other weddings for recognition: the Junior Bridesmaids Wedding of the Year as runner-up; and the Most Colorful Wedding of the Year for honorable mention.

As the Grande Wedding of the Year 2010-2011, Pegeen® proudly announces the selection of the wedding of Jenny and Kevin in April 2010 at the St. Regis, Monarch Beach in Davis Point, CA. We don’t believe anything could have been more perfect from the bride’s stunning dress, the attendants’ attire and the outfits worn by the flower girl (provided by Pegeen®); to the location, catering, decor, wedding favors, flowers, etc. by the fabulous David Tutera. Every picture tells a story, and the photos posted on Pegeen.com tell it all! A perfect wedding planned by David Tutera Weddings (DT Studios, Inc.; http://www.davidtutera.com). Other vendors: Invitations, menus, name cards, etc. – Nidas Botiq (Laguna Beach, CA); Photos – Lars Withers Wanberg; Video – Ashley Video; Hair/make-up – Hair Comes the Bride/Ashley Turner; Wedding gown – Manuel Moto for Pronovios; Couture Flower girl dress – Pegeen.com; Music – West Coast Music; Carls, Jr. Fast Food Truck; Grooms Cake – Christopher Garrens “Let Them Eat Cake.”

Jenny shared with us the story of Kevin’s proposal which was romantic and quite a surprise. “We went to dinner at the Montage Resort, Laguna Beach. We had a beautiful dinner overlooking the ocean and then we took a romantic walk along the beach. Somehow we ended up in front of a room at the Montage. When he opened the door it was the most beautiful and romantic sight - pink everywhere (I am obsessed with pink!). Kevin had candles EVERYWHERE, pink balloons, and rose petals covering every surface. The perfect music was playing and there was champagne! He brought over the most beautiful and most wonderful pink cupcake EVER, got on one knee, and asked me to marry him. Of course, I said, YES!”

The wedding chosen by Pegeen® as the Wedding of the Year Runner-up is the Junior Bridesmaid Wedding, that of Lisa and Bill which took place in August 2010 on the grounds of Bill's beautiful summer lake home in Maine, near the more than 100-year-old home surrounded by water on three sides. Since Lisa is a riding instructor with her own stables in Hamilton, MA where they live during the year, all twenty (20) of her students were her junior bridesmaids and those dresses – as well as the ones for her two new daughters who were also attendants in the wedding – were custom-made by Pegeen® from The Regal Collection. Lisa told us, “We walked down a winding path lined on the sides with white hydrangea plants in dark brown whiskey barrels. The 22 girls had miniature whiskey barrels with handles and tossed flowers in the bride’s path. We all – including the bride! – wore dark brown riding boots which were adorable with Pegeen®’s dresses. I even shared that “look” in my Vera Wang wedding gown. We had a flotilla which started from one end of the family compound to our house. We had 21 dark green canoes with two boatmen and two little girls in each canoe – a unique way to arrive at the wedding location! I came over to meet my future husband in his antique refurbished canoe, riding with my husband’s daughter and two brothers-in-law. After the ceremony, my new husband and I went across the lake to the reception where we were greeted by our 300 guests.”

The wedding designated for Honorable Mention by Pegeen is The Most Colorful Wedding of the Year, that of Stella and Olu in August 2010. With four (4) of her five (5) flower girls dressed in dresses of royal purple and apple green, the wedding even looked like the very happy event it was! Stella and Olu met in Baltimore in 2003 and after a lengthy courtship as very close friends, they decided they were definitely right for one another and tied the knot last August. The bride took great care in selecting the bridesmaids' dresses, with matching skirts but different tops matched to each individual’s style and personality while complementing the overall wedding theme. As the bride explained about Olu’s proposal, “It was a Saturday evening and we were celebrating our anniversary. Olu had planned a trip to London, but he wanted us to lounge at the hotel to make an easy transition to the airport. Unknown to me, he had other plans. Before the evening was over, he dropped me off for a little shopping and left. When he picked me up and we both went back to the hotel, I was wondering why everyone seemed overly nice and friendly. As soon as I walked into the suite, which was lighted only with candles and with flower petals everywhere, I was overwhelmed. When I turned around, he was on his knees and the rest is history!”
