2016 Winner: Ceremony

Stocked with lacy looks from former lingerie designer Claire Pettibone, Sarah Seven’s modern sweetheart silhouettes, Gatsby-esque gowns from Spain’s Rosa Clara and other hard-to-find indie lines, Alix Childs’ light-filled Beacon Hill boutique delights all kinds of brides—and her “non-traditional” specialty is a point of pride. “We work with a lot of mature clients, same-sex couples, eloping brides, even beautiful pregnant mamas,” Childs says, adding, “We’ve done maternity-fit gowns in under four weeks.”
