Logan’s First ‘Lauren Elaine’

Today I’m sharing a look at a very special custom gown, designed for a very special little lady.  Later this year, my sister-in-law Janna will be welcoming her first daughter, Logan Kai, into the world…and I can’t wait to be an Aunt!  I also couldn’t wait to start playing dress-up and dreaming up all things ‘Princess’, so in celebration of her birth, we’ve designed Logan’s first edition ‘Lauren Elaine’ gown.  Complete with my favorite lace appliqué and pearl detailing, here’s a peak at this decadent blush and cream tulle confection…the first of many.

Lisa’s Aurelia under the Arbors

Like a scene straight from a storybook, Lisa and Gerid tied the knot under a canopy of trees, awash in a sea of dreamy bohemian pastels at their wedding this past July at Wellers Carriage House in Saline, Michigan.   Adorned with a crown of flowers perfectly paired with her off-the-shoulder Lauren Elaine “Aurelia” gown, Lisa’s wedding look was nothing short of heavenly.  Here’s a look at their amourous affair,  poetically captured by photographer Jen Boris.

Double Take: Alyssa’s Briar Rose in British Columbia

If this bride looks familiar, it’s because she’s quite possibly one of my favorite people to dress:)  From red carpets, to her own wedding aisle, Alyssa Campanella (now Coombs!) has worn her fair share of Lauren Elaine gowns.  And while you’ll have to wait until the end of August  for a full look at Alyssa’s wedding and her two custom Lauren Elaine wedding gowns (and her bridesmaids’ custom Lauren Elaine gowns!)  to release in the Fall 2016 issue of The Knot – today I’m happy to share these lovely images of Alyssa’s 2nd wedding reception in her Lauren Elaine Briar Rose gown.

Back in April, this fashion blogger and former Miss USA  wed actor Torrance Coombs in a royal-inspired wine country wedding at Sunstone Villa in Santa Ynez, California.  This July, the newlyweds celebrated with their extended family in Canada during a second wedding reception in British Columbia. For this intimate second reception, Alyssa chose the aptly named, and fairytale-inspired “Briar Rose.”  While we stayed away from tulle and opted for more a traditional look for Alyssa’s main ceremony gown in April,  the soft layers and bohemian lace of the “Briar Rose” offered the perfect effortless and playful look for her second celebration, without straying from her regal royal wedding vibe.

Have a look at these enchanting images, capture by Alyssa’s husband Torrance.  Be sure to pick up the Fall 2016 issue of The Knot on newsstands soon – and stay tuned for a full behind-the-seams look at the making of Alyssa’s custom wedding and bridal party gowns.
