Logan’s First ‘Lauren Elaine’

Today I’m sharing a look at a very special custom gown, designed for a very special little lady.  Later this year, my sister-in-law Janna will be welcoming her first daughter, Logan Kai, into the world…and I can’t wait to be an Aunt!  I also couldn’t wait to start playing dress-up and dreaming up all things ‘Princess’, so in celebration of her birth, we’ve designed Logan’s first edition ‘Lauren Elaine’ gown.  Complete with my favorite lace appliqué and pearl detailing, here’s a peak at this decadent blush and cream tulle confection…the first of many.

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.

 

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

Nicola’s Stately Sydney Soiree

Sometimes our brides just blow us away!  Whether it’s unique destination, a non-traditional ceremony, or  a celebration to rival all others – we’re frequently left speechless and in pure awe when our brides share their gorgeous wedding images.  Such is the case with Australian bride Nicola.  With enough glitz to make Gatsby envious, Nicola’s Sydney affair, captured by the amazing Emilio B. Photography, looks straight out of the pages of a magazine.  From arrival in a classic Royals Royce, to the breathtaking backdrop of Syndey’s Gunners Barracks, this soiree really dazzles. And adding to the glamorous vintage flair, Nicola chose our “Aislin” gown, complete with illusion champagne side paneling.  Here’s one for the books!
