Hello to my new friends who read this fabulous blog!
I’m so happy to be joining the talented bloggers who are helping take care of English Muse while Tina’s away. First things first…allow me to introduce myself!

My name is Lindsey and I am a graphic designer turned wedding photographer. I blog about all the things that make my days great and full at A GreatFull Day. I love all things pretty and swoon over ruffles, lace, bows, ribbon, frills and the like. Recently I did a fun little post with more about me that you can check out here.

So without further ado, let’s get down to the good stuff! From the age of two years old until I was eighteen I danced at a local studio. I loved all styles but the days of the week when I did ballet were always my favorite. Something about putting on a pair of pointe shoes makes one instantly feel pretty and ladylike.

Can’t you just imagine she’s adjusting a pointe shoe here?

When I found Caroline Seikaly it was like finding a designer who customized her line with my loves in mind! Her gowns remind me of pretty ballerina costumes–so delicate, shimmery and feminine all at once. Gorgeous photography, intricate details, and timeless designs really seal the deal. Do you think that a vow-renewal after only 3 years is an option?

Do pretty dresses, girly frills and all things lady-like make your heart flutter too? Who are some of your favorite designers? I hope my first post adds a little happy to your day. Thanks for having me here…see you soon!

  1. Caroline Seikaly is a beautiful designer. Thanks for sharing her work. Love, love your post. Hope you are a guest more often.

  2. Pretty dresses, girly frills, and all things lady-like definitely make my heart flutter!

    What a pretty post.

  3. This is absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for putting a great designer on my radar! I'm a new fan :)

  4. So feminine… I love the long flowy look of this dress, it has such a poetic value to it.

    One of my favorite designers? I think Marchesa can really capture the feminine soul in a dress.

  5. Not just a little happy, but a very BIG happy addition to my day…these photos are stunning!

  6. Delicious dresses and perfect pictures.

    No, I don't think that 3 years is too soon for a vow renewal. I thinks it's a great idea to get remarried to your true love every year. What better reminder?

  7. Positively gorgeous! and yes, dresses and shoes make me feel like a woman…however, I tend to collect more than I wear….but still make that purchase, thinking "someday"….it's an investment :) Keep on sharing, again, just beautiful…

  8. Great post! Beautiful photos. ''I love all things pretty and swoon over ruffles, lace, bows, ribbon, frills and the like. '' is so true about me too. :)

  9. How fun to see you here! My heart does go aflutter when I see things like this, I will admit;) My favorites are Claire Pettibone, Sonia Rykiel, Marchesa, and just about anything that came down the runway at Monique Lhullier when I was getting married. Sooo pretty.
