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

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

Janna’s Custom “Cambria” Anniversary

Two years ago today, a very special gown debuted down the aisle in Morro Bay, CA. Later named the “Cambria,” (after the beautiful beach town nearby),  and now one of our most popular styles — this chiffon and horsehair beauty was actually custom designed from start-to-finish for my now sister-in-law, Janna.  While I’ve shared a handful of images of Janna’s custom-designed rehearsal dinner dress, today I’m excited to share a very special look at Janna’s “Cambria” gown- in honor of her two year wedding anniversary!   While it’s always such an honor to work with a bride and design the gown of her dreams for her wedding day, being able to create something special for family was a particularly rewarding experience.

JULIA’S BELLARA AND THE BEACH

Today I’m sharing a few highlights from LUXE DESTINATION WEDDINGS, and their spotlight feature on beautiful Bride Julia and the “Bellara” gown she chose for her destination wedding in the Riviera Maya. These images, shot by Cosmia of Italia, magically capture the light and airy feel of Julia’s wedding, and the festive location.  While traditional ball gowns and beach weddings don’t always mix, the easy breezy beauty and unique fabrication of the “Bellara” paired perfectly with this destination dream wedding. For the full story, and details from Julia and Gregory’s wedding, visit LuxeDestinationWeddings.com.
