The Joy Wedding Garter Featured on Style Me Pretty!!
By: Sarah Dobson | Monday 13th of January 2014 06:02:48 PM
For the past few years, I have been working day and night toward getting the word out about my company. From blog posts to giveaways, to social media promotions and networking via Facebook, I have had one, single burning desire: to let the brides-to-be of the world know that there are modern and stylish wedding garter options available to them. If I could, I would put a sign in the doorway of every Hobby Lobby and Michael's in America that read "Stop! You do not have to purchase your garter here! There are much lovelier options available to you! Please visit www.lagartier.com" But, alas, I can't do that (nor is it legal) so I sit for long hours in front of my MacBook Air with a silent but deadly determination to make La Gartier a nationally recognized brand. So, yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the Joy garter was featured on the mega-popular blog Style Me Pretty and I didn't even know about it. Guess how I found out??? I found out as I was scrolling through my Instagram feed. This must mean that brand awareness for La Gartier has reached some sort of significant point. Now, what that point is, I am not sure....but I know that it is significant....and I know that it made me smile for hours after I saw that Style Me Pretty had featured the Joy garter. The back story: The garter was apart of a GORGEOUS wedding done by Jacin Fitzgerald of Lovely Little Details in the wine country of Southern California. (Jacin is one of my favorite wedding planners in the entire country) It was photographed beautifully by Jessica Burke & the photos are to-die-for. See for yourself!! Below are almost all of the pictures that Style Me Prety included in their post and most importantly, the picture of the Joy garter that was listed in the posting. Ok, I have to get back to work now. :)

La Gartier + Fall Inspiration Shoot by Live View Studios
By: Sarah Dobson | Friday 25th of November 2011 11:08:04 AM
This week La Gartier was lucky enough to be incorporated into a GORGEOUS fall-inspired photography shoot by Live View Studios. Live View Studios is owned by Brent and Anna Deitrich, a husband and wife photography team that I have had the honor of working with in the past. On top of the fashion and wedding photography that they do, Brent and Anna also do various inspiration shoots such as their most recent Fall Inspiration Shoot. I was excited to find out that a La Gartier garter was used in the shoot, and that in addition, the shoot was choosen by Green Wedding Shoes for a feature! Below are a few of my favorite photos from the shoot, plus the photos of the garter. To see the entire shoot or to learn more about Brent and Anna Deitrich, you can click here for the Live View Studios blog.
Thank you so much Brent and Anna for using one of my garters! It looks just perfect on her leg!

Wedding Photography Obsession: Alea Lovely
By: Sarah Dobson | Saturday 12th of November 2011 10:28:21 PM
Ok.........so this posting is going to have absolutely nothing to do with wedding garters but I just can't help myself. Newest obsession: Alea Lovely Photography and Videography. Somewhere in my late night web snooping last week I stumbled upon an ad that caught my eye. I clicked and was directed to Alea's website, where I found some drop dead gorgeous wedding photography. Alea is also the writer of the wedding blog The Bridal Tree which showcases some of the juiciest little tidbits of wedding related inspiration hand-picked by Alea herself. Seriously everyone, if you have a moment to spare, click here and check out her site. To see her blog, click here. Below are a few of my favorite images she has taken. My full appreciation Alea. I am not engaged but when I am you are so my engagement shoot photographer!

Live View Studios: Brent and Anna Deitrich
By: Sarah Dobson | Monday 26th of September 2011 09:01:32 PM
About a month ago I was lucky enough to stumble upon Live View Studios, a husband and wife photography team that does everything from high-end fashion photography to weddings. What first caught my eye was an Elizabeth Taylor "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" styled shoot and then a facebook posting Brent had left on their facebook page about La Gartier. As I became more and more interested in Live View Studios (not to mention Brent and Anna themselves who must be the most adorable husband and wife photography team in North Carolina) I coudn't help contacting them to see if they would be interested in shooting a few La Gartier garters. I got lucky. They were admirers of the garters already and were open to shooting a few if I wanted to send about five their way. I just recently got the final images back and I must say, they don't dissapoint. It is apparent that they are very involved in fashion photography in particular, as these images (see below) look like something out of a Tiffany's catalog or an Anthroplogie.com. If you have a moment, take a look at their fabulous photography at www.liveviewstudios.com!!!! Thank you Brent and Anna and I look forward to working together in the future!!
This first garter is one I designed just for Brent and Anna. Thus the "B" (heart) "A" charms.
Keep in mind all La Gartier garters are customizable, and this is just one example of what is possible.
This next image (takes my breath away!) is also a new garter design. It is made of an ice blue dupioni silk, a center flower rhinestone brooch, and tiny pearl embellishments dotted across the body. Any ideas for a name?
Last but not least, here is a picture of Brent and Anna Deitrich, the husband and wife team behind Live View Studios
