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!

Marcela’s Manor Wedding

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.

ELISE: Mini-Lookbook

Twirl in the opulent beauty of “Elise.”  Petals of horsehair trimmed chiffon cascade under a bodice of alencon French lace and exquisite lace illusion sleeves, with a dramatic open back. Shop ELISE here.

Renata’s Summer Seaside Wedding in Spain

Effortless and elegant. These two words perfectly sum up Renata and Alberto’s stylish July 11th nuptials in Valencia, Spain. For their modern-day fairytale love story, this stunning couple tied the knot against a romantic backdrop of the sea and sails. Renata channeled a modern-day princess in her “Peyton” gown, styled with a chic oversized tulle bow sash.  When designing the “Peyton” gown, I wanted to create a ball gown with an appropriate amount of drama, but one that still offered a balance in being effortless and easy to wear to almost any destination wedding.  Renata’s “Peyton” paired so perfectly with her locations- from sand to city harbor, and this collection of images, photographed by Jessica Marasovic, capture the chic spirit and ease of Renata and Alberto’s wedding flawlessly.  This love story is nothing short of splendid!

 

Olga’s Enchanted Evening Wedding in Athens, Greece

I LOVE receiving images from our lovely brides from around the world! It’s always so inspiring to see how different cultures and countries celebrate weddings and traditions.  Needless to say,  I was thrilled to receive these images from beautiful bride Olga and her new husband Dimosthenis–from their magical May ceremony in Athens, Greece.  For her wedding, Olga chose our “Briarleigh” gown. When designing the whimsical “Briarleigh”, I imagined a bride tying the knot in an enchanted forest, or rustic stone castle or cathedral- and Olga did both!  Saying ‘I do’ in a ceremony that married Old World traditions with New World flair, Olga and Dimosthenis started their ‘happily ever after’ with a celebration to remember!
