Lauren Elaine Bridal Fashion Week Sneak Peek: 2017

Bridal Fashion Week Sneak Peek

It’s almost that time of year again: Bridal Fashion Week! While we release our collection gowns steadily throughout the year, and not exclusively during Bridal Fashion Week seasons– we can’t contain our excitement for all of the newness coming to Lauren Elaine Bridal this Fall/Winter.  We’re excited to announce the release of exclusive new Lauren Elaine collection gowns this October!  And as you’ll find with this special release, we like our gowns like we like our (Rosé) Champagne: with a kiss of color!   Here’s a sneak peek at the magic to come, including a first look at our blushing “Calais” gown. Full release details coming soon…

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.

 

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!

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
