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.

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.
There are so many beautiful settings and hidden gem locations in California for weddings, and I love discovering them with each and every new bride we work with – especially our local Southern California brides! While a venue often helps guide a bride’s dress decision, there are certainly no rules. And I love seeing our brides photographed against such a diverse array of backdrops. Case in point: this gorgeous collection of images from stunning bride Marcela, in her Lauren Elaine “Aurelia” gown, at Crestmore Manor in Southern California. Mixing timeless elegance (venue!) with modern romance (gown!), and a mix of both indoor and outdoor settings -make for one gorgeous affair! Captured by photographer Joey Reger.

From barefoot on the beach elopements, to rustic ceremonies in the French countryside, our brides tie the knot in some pretty amazing and inspiring locations. In November, bride Karen walked down the aisle in gorgeous Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. And not to be outdone amidst breathtaking views of the Pacific and ornate Spanish architecture, Karen looked every part the show-stopping bride in a our “Wisteria” gown. Customized with a draped pearl back, Karen’s “Wisteria” complimented her vibrant, exotic destination and festive bridal party exquisitely. Here’s a blissful look at Karen’s ‘happily ever-after’ in a south of the border Paradise.
I love it when brides decide to customize their wedding look. Whether it’s a small modification on a collection gown, or an entirely custom design – every bride’s vision is different, and we love to accommodate imagination. I was thrilled to receive these wonderful images from Bride Windy’s recent wedding, featuring a customized “Anastasia” gown. For her look, Windy wanted volume. She took inspiration from our “Aurelia” gown, and added a fuller skirt, complete with detachable train, to a sparkling “Anastasia” gown body. She also customized the bodice, and topped off her vision with some drop-dead gorgeous styling (look at that veil!). Her entire look is angelic and glamorous at the same time – and in perfect harmony with her vibrant bridal party. Photographed by Adrian de Los Santos, here’s a bright, joy-filled look at Windy’s wonderful wedding.
Intimate, timeless, and serene – garden weddings are always a favorite of mine. In September, radiant bride Danielle tied the knot at the magical Inn of the Seventh Ray in Topanga– the ultimate secret garden wedding venue. For her gown, Danielle wanted something elegant and vintage-y, while still feeling modern and unique. Pairing perfectly with her location, Danielle wore an “Aurelia” gown, customized just for her with sparkling Swarovski crystals and ivory pearls along the neckline, bodice, and thigh line. I loved working with Danielle to create her dream dress and something truly one-of-a-kind, and I was thrilled to receive this dreamy collection of images. Styled to perfection, Danielle looks every part the dazzling bride.

Glamorous, romantic, and full of happiness…all come to mind when looking at these swoon-worthy images of Bride Sunshine’s summer wedding (photographed by Christopher Todd ) at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach.

Pearls and flowers on her gown and veil complimented the lush floral details throughout her wedding, and perfectly suited her effortlessly glamorous ceremony. Sunshine, much like her name – radiates beauty and happiness- which is flawlessly captured in this gorgeous collection of photos.
