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!

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!’

American Girl, American Made

Today marks the 1 year anniversary of our Style House here in Los Angeles. I can’t believe it’s been one year already- it seemed like we were still under construction only a few months ago.  Crazy enough, it’s also a little over one year since I launched the Lauren Elaine Bridal line. And since launching the bridal line, so much has changed.  While it’s fun to reflect on the journey, I’m always planning for the future.  And no matter how much we expand in order to accommodate new lines and ventures, there’s one thing that’s never changed:  the Lauren Elaine brand is 100% made in the USA.

Being American-made has always been important to me. At first it was more a matter of necessity. As a new designer, the thought of manufacturing overseas   was overwhelming. But as we’ve expanded, we’ve kept everything made right here in the USA.  Not only does being ‘made in the USA’ ensure exceptional quality control, but it keeps jobs here in the US. Sadly, many manufacturers abroad exploit laborers (and often children) who work exhausting days for  mere pennies.  I want to feel good about what I sell, and no amount of profit should come at the expense and unfair treatment of others.

Being American is part of my identity.  Sure- I love to travel and experience new cultures and places around the world – but America is where I call ‘home.’  Living in California inspires me as a Designer, and I believe in keeping production and the creation of my designs as close to home, and my inspiration, as possible.

As you probably can tell my excessive posts, I’m highly anticipating the release of Maleficent next week.  But in the meantime, Disney’s managed to get me equally excited about their follow-up live action fairytale film, Cinderella, slated for an April 2015 release date.  Lily James as Cinderella looks the part in the first released production still.  And the robin egg blue shade of that dress is perfection.
