Let Them Eat Cake: Bride Jessie’s Modern Reign in Monarch

If you share my love for all things feminine, fancy, and pink — prepare to swoon over today’s lavish look at Bride Jessie’s envy-inspiring wedding in Seattle, Washington.  With a vibe reminiscent of 18th century France,  Jessie tied the knot to husband Ryan in a celebration worthy of Marie Antoinette.  Paying an impeccable attention to detail, this decidedly modern taken on this vintage theme is anything but fussy- and it’s styled to pure perfection.   Along with amazing accessories (check out her gilded heels!),  Jessie reigned in a custom Lauren Elaine “Monarch” gown, complete with detachable cathedral train and veil, crowned with perhaps some of my favorite bridal-hair to date!  Get lost in this collection of images, photographed by Barrie Anne Photography, and experience this decadent wedding at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel, perfectly planned by Simply By Tamara Nicole. |  Other vendors-   Florist: Flowers by Patti, Hair/Makeup: Katie McMullen, Macarons: Lady Yum, Rentals: Grand Event RentalsVintage AmbianceLa Tavola Fine Linens

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.

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.

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!’
