Inspiration: Coralia by Elizabeth Fogarty

This is one for the girly girl in all of us. Pink, peach and prettily pastel, this flowery inspiration shoot was created by a team of floral designers (not surprised) and it could not be more delightful! Blooms galore and a whole floral wall? Consider us charmed.

Inspiration: Pherousa and Oceane by Kristin Sweeting

This Colorado Styled shoot has set our hearts on fire. We are longing for adventure in the great outdoors and unending days to be wild and free. These expansive vistas, bright blue skies, and glistening bodies of water seem like such a natural home for our Pherousa and Oceane gowns. Brought to life by the wind and the amazing Kristin Sweeting, our dresses couldn't be happier. Buon weekend adventurers!

Real Weddings: Meet Anna

Anna + Ben chose to have a destination wedding in Hawaii. With Ben's family traveling in from Australia and Anna's from the US it was an ideal meeting place. From our vantage point it looks like the perfect day all around. Their ceremony spot was right on the ocean in a grove a palm trees, their weather all sunshine, and their guests all smiles. We are in love with Anna's custom creation. Her bustier is actually a version of our Citrine Dress and it paired so beautifully with her Kensington Skirt. Congratulations you two and Aloha (which in addition to being used to say hello and goodbye, is a catch-all word of good intentions...and we are sending all the best your way!

Inspiration: Adella, Azurite, and Pasithea by Matthew Ree

Botanical dreams are made of these. Our Adella, Azurite, and Pasithea gowns and our Nightingale Capelet photographed by Matthew Ree are so content in these verdant surroundings. We love the focus on greens rather than blooms, which makes this shoot feel totally modern.

Real Weddings: Meet Juli

This one's a special one. Since bride Juli is a floral designer herself, something out of the ordinary was a must!  This fully custom blush gown with exposed boning, metallic handcut embellishment, and asymmetrical tulle overskirt topped with a custom copper leather belt and the sequin Oyster jacket was just the ticket!  Drama, color, and texture paired perfectly with her personality filled wedding!

Inspiration: Xantha by Charlie Juliet

As we savor the last weeks of summer we are looking back at this springtime in New York shoot, by Charlie Juliet, with particular fondness. With the soft focus and sweet pastel blooms we can almost feel the warm gentle breeze on our faces! Luckily fall is also lovely...and it's just around the corner.

Real Weddings: Meet Roxanne

Roxanne and Jernel were married in New York and their wedding was all about big city sophistication. Our Tourmaline Gown was the perfect choice for her classic and polished bridal style. We love all of the city vibes captured by the amazing Levi Stolove (of Levi Stolove Photography). The cab, the ultra cool bridesmaids, and the reception at Chelsea Piers are all so quintessentially NYC. Congratulations you two!
