Wedding Bells for Michelle: Glittering and Glossy in “Jasmine”

GOWN FEATURED:  A custom “Jasmine” by Lauren Elaine.

Mermaid gowns ooze glamour. They drip with drama, and they command a room (and reception!) like no other silhouette. They’re stylishly modern, and feel right at home at a glittering and glossy wedding celebration.  Need an example?  Have a look at these beyond brilliant images (and video teaser), captured by Encor Studio,  featuring our  glowing bride Michelle, and her custom Lauren Elaine “Jasmine” gown. From her traditional ceremony, to her editorial-worthy bridal party portraits atop a sleek rooftop, Michelle radiates style.   Topping it all off with one fabulously gilded wedding reception, Michelle (and new husband Michael) have one ‘happily ever after’ to last a lifetime.

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.

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.

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.

Sunshine’s ‘Happily Ever After’ in Huntington Beach

GOWN FEATURED: “AURELIA” by Lauren Elaine.

Glamorous, romantic, and full of happiness…all come to mind when looking at these swoon-worthy images of Bride Sunshine’s summer wedding (photographed by Christopher Todd ) at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach.  I had the pleasure of meeting Sunshine at our Style House in Los Angeles in January, and working with her to customize her “Aurelia” gown and cathedral veil.  Pearls and flowers on her gown and veil complimented the lush floral details throughout her wedding, and perfectly suited her effortlessly glamorous ceremony. Sunshine, much like her name – radiates beauty and happiness- which is flawlessly captured in this gorgeous collection of photos.
