We developed a line of Infant and Toddler Flower Girl Dresses that come from our love of Disney. We are so lucky that we get to visit the parks at least once a week and get to bring our grand daughter too! Made in silk and tulle and plenty of pixie dust.

We were fortunate enough to finally celebrate with our son and his new wife in Lake Tahoe for a delayed reception. It was really nice because it took off the pressure for them to have a huge wedding especially since they were only 24 when the married in March of this year. Even nicer for us was that it was held in a small town called Kings Beach, right at the north end of Lake Tahoe.. and it had been on our bucket list for years. Since it had been the first vacation we were able to take in many years (except for family reunions) we were really looking forward to some well-deserved time off. I will brag a bit too – Bill’s wedding was months earlier and their niece wore really one of my favorite dresses from my Pegeen Fairytale Collection of flower girl dresses, The Opal Fairy, our version of Elsa’s dress from Frozen. I was so proud to see the dress in “action”.
We loved how Bill and Juanita were going to be able to get formal portraits done the night before the Celebration Reception by a photographer friend, happy that they were able to get professional shots done that I could put my newly acquired scrapbook skills to use. I think they came out beautiful so for anyone who is waiting for a trip, I recommend going to Kings Beach, Lake Tahoe. Before I forget however, a few funny stories, but I will be brief. First, when you capture the last flight into Reno and are lucky to get to the car rentals in time before they (yawn) close at 1230 pm, get a hotel in Reno. DON’T think that you can just wing it, finding a place between Reno and Kings Beach. You can’t. Boy these people go to sleep early.
So – we drove to Tahoe, and it was about 4am our time and when we arrived we drove around briefly looking for a place to grab a bite. Wasn’t happening (the town was fast asleep) but we found a sort-of 7-Eleven (maybe it was, I was exhausted) where I remarked to my youngest and to my husband, “look at that beautiful carving of that HUGE bear.” Only it wasn’t a carving, it MOVED and this big bear was hungry but the attendant there simply and calmly closed the door until the bear moved on. Later that morning, now 5am our time, we found the grocery store (it was filled with a wonderful selection of California wines) and the clerk said – “Oh, that’s Bob the Bear. He’s just looking for some watermelon and treats”. Anyhow, after several drive-bys to see what Bob the Bear was up to in this quaint little town, we decided that napping on the beach (we couldn’t open the lock box for some reason) was out due to the presence of Bob the Bear. Instead, we decided to go to sleep in the driveway of the rental in, as my son called it, “the van by the river”. Spreading our our luggage and sweaters on the van’s floor (because we couldn’t believe it would ACTUALLY get down to 40 degrees, we didn’t bring coats) we nearly froze our Floridian skins in our overnight stay. Honestly, I can’t remember what fresh pine air was anymore so it was lovely. End of stories. Anyhow – we had a great weekend and thank you, Billy and Juanita, and to their mom for your hospitality and to the lovely town of King’s Beach, Lake Tahoe.
Melts your heart, doesn’t it?? This sweet little, barely 3 year old flower girl is determined to get her petals down. And we we so pleased to receive it from our customer Patti who said:
“Hey! I just wanted to send a picture of my great niece Marina’s dress that you made. She’s 10 now, but her dress is still my favorite flower girl’s dress that I have ever seen. It was beautiful!! Nothing I have seen at the weddings I’ve been to since can rival it”.
SUCH a nice compliment. She ordered Pegeen flower girl dress couture style 402 in plum silk and tulle. Some times being so close to Disney World we are lucky to be able to meet our customers but then, there are customers like this who live way across the country that we never get to meet – do a few family weddings for them some times – but get to know them as valued “friends” through Facebook or Instagram. Life is grand!!
Still on the style watch for this “Near-Royal” wedding.
On May 20th, Pippa Middleton and James Matthews are getting married. In attendance will be the future King of England, William and future Queen, Kate, sister of the bride.
So naturally, royal-watchers will be doing what watchers of the Royals do: Paying attention to every “royal” detail imaginable.
Like the last wedding, we at Pegeen will be up early Saturday morning checking out the selections for Prince George’s pageboy suit and Princess Charlotte’s flower girl dress. Not being a British apparel we would never get chosen although we are the children’s designs for many celebrities. We can however wonder if we were chosen, what styles would the bride choose?
