Bride Lisa wears her Lauren Elaine "Aurelia" mermaid wedding gown at Wellers Carriage House in Saline, Michigan

Lisa’s Aurelia under the Arbors

Like a scene straight from a storybook, Lisa and Gerid tied the knot under a canopy of trees, awash in a sea of dreamy bohemian pastels at their wedding this past July at Wellers Carriage House in Saline, Michigan.   Adorned with a crown of flowers perfectly paired with her off-the-shoulder Lauren Elaine “Aurelia” gown, Lisa’s wedding look was nothing short of heavenly.  Here’s a look at their amourous affair,  poetically captured by photographer Jen Boris.

Nikki’s Desert Dream

I have an obsession with desert landscapes.  So, when I first saw these jaw-dropping images (by photographer Kathleen Hertel) from Nikki and Chris’s wedding ceremony on Jean Dry Lake bed outside of Las Vegas, NV, I fell madly in love (and very nostalgic for our SS2011 Black Label Campaign Film.)  To compliment the unique and memorable location for her wedding, bride Nikki chose the “Bella” gown, and added to the free-spirit vibe of her wedding with a fresh flower crown.  After saying ‘I do’ against this majestic mirage, Nikki and Chris celebrated at the famous “Pioneer Saloon.” A desert dream come true.  Lauren Elaine Bella Gown real life bride, kathleen hertel photographyLauren Elaine Bridal Real Wedding, Bohemian bridalLauren Elaine Bridal, Wedding at Jean dry lake bed las vegasLauren Elaine Bella gown, destination wedding, dry lake bedDry lake bed wedding, las vegasLaurenElaineBellaGown-Nikki-KathleenHertelPhotoLaurenElaineBellaGown-Nikki-KathleenHertelPhoto2Lauren Elaine Bridal, Pioneer Saloon, Las Vegas

BEHIND-THE-SCENES: Laine by Lauren Elaine SS2013

 

This past Monday we shot a “shipwrecked” themed lookbook for the new ‘LAINE by Lauren Elaine’ SS2013 collection in Malibu, CA. I had so much fun working with models Samantha Sergeant (returning ‘face’ of LAINE) and Kayla Renee Lewis, and styling them up with a huge collection of seashell and flower crowns.  And with amazing makeup  by Vanessa Venancio, they very much became my vision of bohemian mermaids:)  Check out some of the behind-the-scenes photos below.  The full lookbook will launch online soon! –Lauren
