Epilogue

Alyssa’s Arizona Isla Affair

It’s often said that “simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.”  And it’s certainly the case for bride Alyssa, and her outdoor wedding affair in Arizona earlier this year. Stunning from head to toe in her customized Lauren Elaine Isla gown, this bride stole the show with her refined bridal style, and added a bit of bohemian vintage flair by pairing her fitted lace silhouette with a sparkling belt and crown of braids.  Building on this effortlessly elegant feel, Alyssa’s gaggle of gorgeous bridesmaids donned goddess-ey convertible champagne hued gowns – each styling them slightly differently.  Oh so chic!  |  Lauren Elaine “Isla” gown available (exclusively in Arizona) at Grace Style & Bridal.

Marcela’s Manor Wedding

There are so many beautiful settings and hidden gem locations in California for weddings, and I love discovering them with each and every new bride we work with – especially our local Southern California brides!  While a venue often helps guide a bride’s dress decision, there are certainly no rules.  And I love seeing our brides photographed against such a diverse array of backdrops.  Case in point: this gorgeous collection of images from stunning bride Marcela, in her Lauren Elaine “Aurelia” gown, at Crestmore Manor in Southern California.  Mixing timeless elegance (venue!) with modern romance (gown!), and a mix of both indoor and outdoor settings -make for one gorgeous affair!  Captured by photographer Joey Reger.

Taylor’s East Coast Autumn Cambria

Fall is my favorite time of year.  So, needless to say, when I first laid eyes on these gorgeous images by Lauren Louise Photography, featuring bride Taylor in her Cambria gown, I was blown away.  Rustic yet modernly classic, this golden look at Taylor and Bruce’s nuptials at the Three Rivers Inn in Long Island New York captures the spirit of Autumn, and their love, so wonderfully.  Pairing our chiffon Cambria gown with the rich colors and textures of this romantic East Coast backdrop is refreshing and unique, and truly epitomizes the crisp magic of Fall.  Vendors: Jewels: Crystal Avenues | Hair Sylist: Jessica Ciofrone | Floral Design: Roots Flowers + Treasures

Karen’s Wisteria in Paradise

From barefoot on the beach elopements, to rustic ceremonies in the French countryside, our brides tie the knot in some pretty amazing and inspiring locations.  In November, bride Karen walked down the aisle in gorgeous Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.  And not to be outdone amidst breathtaking views of the Pacific and ornate Spanish architecture, Karen looked every part the show-stopping bride in a our “Wisteria” gown.  Customized with a draped pearl back, Karen’s “Wisteria” complimented her vibrant, exotic destination and festive bridal party exquisitely. Here’s a blissful look at Karen’s ‘happily ever-after’ in a south of the border Paradise.

Renata’s Summer Seaside Wedding in Spain

Effortless and elegant. These two words perfectly sum up Renata and Alberto’s stylish July 11th nuptials in Valencia, Spain. For their modern-day fairytale love story, this stunning couple tied the knot against a romantic backdrop of the sea and sails. Renata channeled a modern-day princess in her “Peyton” gown, styled with a chic oversized tulle bow sash.  When designing the “Peyton” gown, I wanted to create a ball gown with an appropriate amount of drama, but one that still offered a balance in being effortless and easy to wear to almost any destination wedding.  Renata’s “Peyton” paired so perfectly with her locations- from sand to city harbor, and this collection of images, photographed by Jessica Marasovic, capture the chic spirit and ease of Renata and Alberto’s wedding flawlessly.  This love story is nothing short of splendid!

 

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.
