Angel to Apple: Say Yes to the Dresses

Angel to Apple: Say Yes to the Dresses

As Angel to Apple's Kelly Hessinger was trying on a wedding gown, she noticed the piece's beading and tulle.

"It's very Cinderella-esque," remarked boutique owner Jamie Symmonds.

Ironically, the white dress is one from a collection bestowed on Symmonds by something of a fairy godmother (OK, technically a male acquaintance). With between 45 and 50 new gowns, Symmonds plans to hold her own magical ball on Sunday, Feb. 12. Angel to Apple hosts a one-day bridal gown sample sale from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.  

"(The donor said,) 'I have all these dresses -- is there something you maybe could do with them?' " Symmonds said.

In response, she planned an event featuring wine tastings (courtesy of Savory Sips), music from Tony Petrocelli (of Lewiston Music), pictures by Shannon Martino of Martino Photographics and custom-made hair accessories with Jamie Andrews of Cutie Head Couture.

"I thought it would be more of a draw for the buyers," Symmonds said.
