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.
The color of power. The feeling of love. The original inspiration. “Scarlet” by Lauren Elaine releases later this year. A limited collection of evening and special occasion gowns worthy of their namesake. Revealing soon…
It’s often said that “simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.” And it’s certainly the case for bride Alyssa, and her outdoor wedding affair in Arizona earlier this year. Stunning from head to toe in her customized Lauren Elaine Isla gown, this bride stole the show with her refined bridal style, and added a bit of bohemian vintage flair by pairing her fitted lace silhouette with a sparkling belt and crown of braids. Building on this effortlessly elegant feel, Alyssa’s gaggle of gorgeous bridesmaids donned goddess-ey convertible champagne hued gowns – each styling them slightly differently. Oh so chic! | Lauren Elaine “Isla” gown available (exclusively in Arizona) at Grace Style & Bridal.

Today marks the 1 year anniversary of our Style House here in Los Angeles. I can’t believe it’s been one year already- it seemed like we were still under construction only a few months ago. Crazy enough, it’s also a little over one year since I launched the Lauren Elaine Bridal line. And since launching the bridal line, so much has changed. While it’s fun to reflect on the journey, I’m always planning for the future. And no matter how much we expand in order to accommodate new lines and ventures, there’s one thing that’s never changed: the Lauren Elaine brand is 100% made in the USA.
Being American-made has always been important to me. At first it was more a matter of necessity. As a new designer, the thought of manufacturing overseas was overwhelming. But as we’ve expanded, we’ve kept everything made right here in the USA. Not only does being ‘made in the USA’ ensure exceptional quality control, but it keeps jobs here in the US. Sadly, many manufacturers abroad exploit laborers (and often children) who work exhausting days for mere pennies. I want to feel good about what I sell, and no amount of profit should come at the expense and unfair treatment of others.
Being American is part of my identity. Sure- I love to travel and experience new cultures and places around the world – but America is where I call ‘home.’ Living in California inspires me as a Designer, and I believe in keeping production and the creation of my designs as close to home, and my inspiration, as possible.
