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.
Be sure to pick up your Fall 2016 Issue of The Knot for a feature on Alyssa Campanella’s custom Lauren Elaine wedding gown, reception gown, and bridesmaids gowns for her royal-inspired California wedding, and a gorgeous photo spread captured by The Why We Love! We’ll be sharing more images shortly, as well as an exclusive behind-the-scenes feature on the making of these custom gowns, but in the meantime, enjoy these swoon-worthy peeks into this stunning Santa Ynez ‘happily ever after!’
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.
This special “sneak peek” edition of “Once Upon a Seam with Designer Lauren Elaine” highlights the making of Alyssa Campanella’s royal-inspired custom Lauren Elaine wedding gowns.

I’m beyond excited to share this magical first look at Alyssa Campanella and Torrance Coomb’s wedding this past Saturday, and a first look at her custom Lauren Elaine gowns! We’ve been keeping this special secret for a while now;) Such an honor and pleasure designing for this friend and muse, and I’m so happy to be a part of her ‘happily ever after.’ Visit People Magazine’s Style Watch to see the exclusive first look on Alyssa’s two gowns! Look for the full reveal on Alyssa’s wedding and wedding fashions in an upcoming issue of The Knot, along with special behind-the-scenes features on the making of Alyssa’s custom wedding gowns and bridesmaids gowns.
I love a good challenge. So earlier in January, when my good friend and favorite “muse” Alyssa Campanella asked if I could design her a special gown for the 2014 People’s Choice Awards- I jumped at the chance. Not only is Alyssa a Designer’s dream, but her style is very similar to my own. The challenge? A four day deadline.
Luckily, Alyssa knew exactly what she wanted. Something elegant, romantic, and effortless. The result: an ethereal, iridescent custom gown fit for a modern-day princess.
I’m so happy with the end result of this gown. And it’s also very exciting to see Alyssa toping many of the season’s ‘Best Dressed’ lists!
And a special congratulations to CW’s “Reign” for winning Favorite New TV Drama at the People’s Choice Awards!
