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.

Best Dressed: Alyssa Campanella in Monte Carlo

I’ve been so busy these past few months that I haven’t had a chance to share this stunning red carpet look from favorite muse Alyssa Campanella. Back in late May, Alyssa looked the part of a golden goddess at the 2014 Monte Carlo TV Festival’s “Golden Nymph” awards- Monaco’s version of the Oscars – in a champagne hued Lauren Elaine Bridal collection gown.  For the very royal affair, Alyssa wanted something regal, and something fitting for the event’s black tie dress code.  With peekaboo french lace embroidery, a plunging neckline, and flowing train, Alyssa served up some serious drama while keeping with her signature lady-like style, and topped Glamour Magazine’s ‘Best Dressed’ list.

Best Dressed: Alyssa Campanella at the 2014 People’s Choice Awards

I love a good challenge.  So earlier in January, when my good friend and favorite “muse” Alyssa Campanella asked if I could design her a special gown for the 2014 People’s Choice Awards- I jumped at the chance.  Not only is Alyssa a Designer’s dream, but her style is very similar to my own.  The challenge?  A four day deadline.  Alyssa+Campanella+Arrivals+People+Choice+Awards+CIyIzutzn36l

Luckily, Alyssa knew exactly what she wanted.   Something elegant, romantic, and effortless.   The result: an ethereal, iridescent custom gown  fit for a modern-day princess.

I’m so happy with the end result of this gown.  And it’s also very exciting to see Alyssa toping many of the season’s  ‘Best Dressed’ lists!
