Tal’s Colorful Custom California Wedding

With breathtaking desert mountain views in the background, and vistas of pepper trees in the foreground, bride Tal tied the knot to husband Ian in true California style.  Splashed with color from start to finish,  Tal and Ian’s wedding at Angeles National Golf Club merged tradition with playful celebration and an indoor/outdoor venue perfectly suited to it’s June date and West Coast location.  To add a generous dose of glamour to her Los Angeles affair, Tal worked with us to create the perfect custom Lauren Elaine mermaid wedding gown.  Inspired by our “Aislin” and “Jasmine” styles, Tal’s custom gown incorporated champagne underlay side paneling,  3D floral lace appliqués,  and a plunging back with a show-stopping feathered tulle skirt with detachable cathedral train, and topped with a custom cathedral veil and blusher.  But even more show-stopping than her gown and venue combined, gorgeous Bride Tal shines with happiness in these dazzling captures by photographer Yair Haim.

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.

 

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.

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.
