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

Joy’s Castle Wedding at Cap Cana

 Once upon a time, in a land far far away, bride Joy said “I do” to fiance Stephen in a breathtaking castle overlooking the sea…

Today, I’m so excited to share this romantic look at Joy’s fairytale-worthy May wedding at the Sanctuary Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic- and her custom “Lotus” gown!  From the rustic stone walls, to the dreamy castle staircases, this enchanting location was made for a tulle ball gown – and I can’t stop swooning over the amazing images of Joy and her “Lotus” as captured by photographer Jay Melilli.  And for the icing on the cake, Joy went with something red (my favorite!) – a pair of the most gorgeous scarlett-hued heels.  May they live ‘happily ever after!’

Today I’m sharing a few highlights from LUXE DESTINATION WEDDINGS, and their spotlight feature on beautiful Bride Julia and the “Bellara” gown she chose for her destination wedding in the Riviera Maya. These images, shot by Cosmia of Italia, magically capture the light and airy feel of Julia’s wedding, and the festive location.  While traditional ball gowns and beach weddings don’t always mix, the easy breezy beauty and unique fabrication of the “Bellara” paired perfectly with this destination dream wedding.

Inspiring Parks: Pt. 1

“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods…”

Nothing is more inspiring than Nature.  I’ve lost hours to google,  constantly on the hunt for interesting and inspiring photoshoot locations and scenery, and beautiful new places to discover.  In February, I explored 5 national parks throughout California, ranging from prehistoric lakes to alpine forests.  I kicked off a month of exploration in a place close to home–Angeles National Forest.  While not exactly a new destination for me (see Sunday Safari), it’s landscape is vast and changes dramatically from one mile to the next. With a picnic in tow, I explored the eastern range of the mountains, complete with towering pines and rustic bridges in golden afternoon light.  A perfect spot if I ever choose to revisit our ‘Little Red Riding Hood‘ campaign.
