At True North Bridal Studio our ethos is simple, to create a unique experience where brides feel inspired to be their most authentic selves. We encourage brides to stay true to their vision, and aim to create a relaxed, intimate, and fresh approach to wedding dress shopping. We are obsessed with our curated selection of wedding dresses and accessories and we know our True North brides will be too.
Each appointment enjoys the 'run of the house', which means the space and our attention are solely dedicated to you! And those rare few you hold closest to your heart. We believe this magical time should feel personal and special, with an emphasis on effortless.
Upon entering our bridal shop doors, our space feels more like a sanctuary of sorts. Our laid-back vibe offers a breath of fresh air to those who seek a place where you’re not just treated like another bride, or another face; but rather, like an old friend. We value and nurture the relationships we create along the way, and feel super grateful we get to play a small part in each beautiful story. We live for love, it's as simple as that.
At True North, we don’t believe in settling for just any dress because someone thinks the dress looks ‘bridal’. We embrace the rare and unexpected, and think your wedding dress should reflect who you are and your personal style. From elaborate to simple, from bohemian to fashion-forward, and everything in between, the wedding gown and bridal accessory designers we carry are incredible. We are all about helping you find your dream bridal look. And when you do, you better believe we will celebrate!
So, please do come see us in Chatham. It’s an ideal place to take a day trip with your crew. We are in Hudson Valley, close to Albany, and right near the Berkshires. Talk about a perfect location!
Two simple words, yet, these two words can hold so much meaning, to an array of people, in very vast and powerful ways.
To us, these two words are weighted with personal value; in it’s truest form.
During Katee's wedding ceremony, her cousin read a beautiful poem she had written for Katee and her husband titled, ‘We Do’. An excerpt of the poem instantly captured them and quickly moved Katee to tears.
We Do…wish that you will always be each other’s True North – a natural bearing home in each others arms – a place of protection when the storms of the world seem perilous and hard.
When one thinks of marriage, many people often think of their partner as being their constant, their home, their guiding force---their True North.
To Katee, these two words are a representation of solace, inspiration, warmth, pure bliss, and a whole lotta love.
When it came time to give a name to her dream, it proved to be natural choice.
… Now that it's Alyssa's turn, the name still perfectly embodies everything Alyssa aims to bring to the studio. After all, she was drawn to the studio when she was shopping for a wedding dress for a reason. Alyssa is all about being yourself, and believes that that's where the true magic is. She believes that weddings are the perfect place to let that gorgeous self shine through. Just like the great Rebecca Campbell says, "keep facing your true north" and everything will fall into place.
