Windy’s One-of-a-Kind Anastasia

I love it when brides decide to customize their wedding look. Whether it’s a small modification on a collection gown, or an entirely custom design – every bride’s vision is different, and we love to accommodate imagination.  I was thrilled to receive these wonderful images from Bride Windy’s recent wedding, featuring a customized “Anastasia” gown.  For her look, Windy wanted volume. She took inspiration from our “Aurelia” gown, and added a fuller skirt, complete with detachable train, to a sparkling “Anastasia” gown body.  She also customized the bodice, and topped off her vision with some drop-dead gorgeous styling (look at that veil!).  Her entire look is angelic and glamorous at the same time – and in perfect harmony with her vibrant bridal party.   Photographed by Adrian de Los Santos,  here’s a bright, joy-filled look at Windy’s wonderful wedding.

Danielle’s Dazzling Custom Aurelia

Intimate, timeless, and serene – garden weddings are always a favorite of mine.  In September, radiant bride Danielle tied the knot at the magical Inn of the Seventh Ray in Topanga– the ultimate secret garden wedding venue. For her gown, Danielle wanted something elegant and vintage-y, while still feeling modern and unique.  Pairing perfectly with her location, Danielle wore an “Aurelia” gown, customized just for her with sparkling Swarovski crystals and ivory pearls along the neckline, bodice, and thigh line.  I loved working with Danielle to create her dream dress and something truly one-of-a-kind, and I was thrilled to receive this dreamy collection of images.  Styled to perfection, Danielle looks every part the dazzling bride.

Olga’s Enchanted Evening Wedding in Athens, Greece

I LOVE receiving images from our lovely brides from around the world! It’s always so inspiring to see how different cultures and countries celebrate weddings and traditions.  Needless to say,  I was thrilled to receive these images from beautiful bride Olga and her new husband Dimosthenis–from their magical May ceremony in Athens, Greece.  For her wedding, Olga chose our “Briarleigh” gown. When designing the whimsical “Briarleigh”, I imagined a bride tying the knot in an enchanted forest, or rustic stone castle or cathedral- and Olga did both!  Saying ‘I do’ in a ceremony that married Old World traditions with New World flair, Olga and Dimosthenis started their ‘happily ever after’ with a celebration to remember!

Janna’s Custom “Cambria” Anniversary

Two years ago today, a very special gown debuted down the aisle in Morro Bay, CA. Later named the “Cambria,” (after the beautiful beach town nearby),  and now one of our most popular styles — this chiffon and horsehair beauty was actually custom designed from start-to-finish for my now sister-in-law, Janna.  While I’ve shared a handful of images of Janna’s custom-designed rehearsal dinner dress, today I’m excited to share a very special look at Janna’s “Cambria” gown- in honor of her two year wedding anniversary!   While it’s always such an honor to work with a bride and design the gown of her dreams for her wedding day, being able to create something special for family was a particularly rewarding experience.

Sunshine’s ‘Happily Ever After’ in Huntington Beach

Glamorous, romantic, and full of happiness…all come to mind when looking at these swoon-worthy images of Bride Sunshine’s summer wedding (photographed by Christopher Todd ) at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach.  I had the pleasure of meeting Sunshine at our Style House in Los Angeles in January, and working with her to customize her “Aurelia” gown and cathedral veil.  Pearls and flowers on her gown and veil complimented the lush floral details throughout her wedding, and perfectly suited her effortlessly glamorous ceremony. Sunshine, much like her name – radiates beauty and happiness- which is flawlessly captured in this gorgeous collection of photos.

Nikki’s Desert Dream

I have an obsession with desert landscapes.  So, when I first saw these jaw-dropping images (by photographer Kathleen Hertel) from Nikki and Chris’s wedding ceremony on Jean Dry Lake bed outside of Las Vegas, NV, I fell madly in love (and very nostalgic for our SS2011 Black Label Campaign Film.)  To compliment the unique and memorable location for her wedding, bride Nikki chose the “Bella” gown, and added to the free-spirit vibe of her wedding with a fresh flower crown.  After saying ‘I do’ against this majestic mirage, Nikki and Chris celebrated at the famous “Pioneer Saloon.” A desert dream come true.  Lauren Elaine Bella Gown real life bride, kathleen hertel photographyLauren Elaine Bridal Real Wedding, Bohemian bridalLauren Elaine Bridal, Wedding at Jean dry lake bed las vegasLauren Elaine Bella gown, destination wedding, dry lake bedDry lake bed wedding, las vegasLaurenElaineBellaGown-Nikki-KathleenHertelPhotoLaurenElaineBellaGown-Nikki-KathleenHertelPhoto2Lauren Elaine Bridal, Pioneer Saloon, Las Vegas
