Feminine with an edge, Hayley Paige bridal gowns are fresh, lively and confident. Hayley Paige, head designer of the Blush and Hayley Paige bridal collections, made a jump start in fashion by interning at Elle magazine while attending Cornell University. After receiving honorary attention for her 10-piece bridal collection shown during her graduating year, Hayley delved further into the bridal fashion industry, spending time designing for Jill Stuart, Melissa Sweet and Priscilla of Boston.
Ever so eclectic, her designs capture a romantic and charming aesthetic that balances inner ingénue and sophistication. Her interpretation of worldly influences and desire to dress hopeful romantics have provided a foundation for a fanciful and fresh take on bridal wear. Never taking herself too seriously and fully embracing the adorning history of the bridal industry, Hayley Paige develops her craft from an inspirational place of appreciation and enjoyment.
Schedule your appointment online or call the salon at 972.781.1619.

Our talented designers created a chic tabletop with a feminine edge using bold black and white, softened by lovely pinks and peach. We think the end result has a definite je ne sais quoi - don't you?!
We enjoyed working with a gifted team of vendors to breath life into our romantic vision. Très bien, oui?

The couple came to our Weddings by StarDust dream team with a clear vision: a single location for both the ceremony and reception, a black and white color palette with a modern and elegant design, and the reception must be loads of fun! Our talented wedding planners happily took the challenge and delivered - in spades!
Guests dined on a mouth-watering surf and turf duo. Later, they enjoyed two fabulous cake creations and were sent home with sweet treats as a thank-you.
Here are a few more details from the evening that are oh-so-lovely!
At the end of the party, the happy couple was sent off with a musical escort while guests shook lighted tambourines.
