Real Weddings: Meet Andria Part Two

Welcome to Part Two of Andria and Christopher's super-fly Palm Springs Wedding. Just look at these extraordinary portraits in the wind fields. We love how intimate this circular ceremony set-up is and that the couple chose to jump the broom! Wishing you two decades of style, smiles, and love!

Inspiration: Kyanite by Chris Isham

This seaside shoot evokes fascinating narrative possibilities. We are not sure if we prefer imagining this bride as a sea sprite or a castaway. What we are sure of is that our Kyanite dress is choice in this beautifully marooned wedding atmosphere. With the easy jersey fabric and gorgeous draped cowl back this gown looks, and moves, like the waves. We wouldn't mind being shipwrecked here...maybe just for the weekend.

Real Weddings: Meet Andria Part One

Welcome to Part One of Andria and Christopher's outrageously stylish wedding! The couple celebrated with an intimate ceremony in Palm Sprins and their pictures are just so good we had to split them into 2 blog posts. In this post, we get to see Andria and Christoper getting dressed and see each other for the first time on their big day. The bride wore our Les Astres Gown, customized with our Sparkling Sands Belt, and a killer leg slit. Stay tuned for their portraits in the desert, ceremony, and after party!

Inspiration: Senara by Emily Katharine Photography

Fall is officially upon us and this moody autumnal inspiration shoot has us appreciating the change in seasons. Our Senara Gown and Cassiopeia Veil are perfectly placed among these dramatic and sophisticated details.  Somehow the deep florals and rich touches feel so right with a little nip in the air. Welcome Fall!

Real Weddings: Meet Frances

Frances and Ralph were married at the Thomas Bennet House in Charleston. The home, circa 1825, is one of the most magnificent homes in the city. It has been lovingly restored. It offers equally gorgeous interior and outdoor spaces, just the right fit for this classic southern wedding. The garden's traditional beauty, with its large brick courtyard and fountain, was perfect for saying "I do" and then partying into the night. Frances chose an ultra-romantic look with our Heritage Bustier, Customized La Reine Skirt, and Empress Veil for her ceremony. Then she danced the night away in our La Reine Shorty. As you can see this couple partied like royalty!

Real Weddings: Meet Mary Elizabeth

Mary Elizabeth and Caleb's day began like most other days in Florida, with a little bit of rain. But, you know what they say, rain on your wedding day is good luck! And these two were undaunted. The day cleared and the couple said their I-dos at the First Baptist Church of Pensacola surrounded by colorful stained glass windows.

They celebrated with friends and family at the Museum of Commerce in downtown Pensacola. A gorgeous brick turn-of-the-century warehouse, which holds a reconstructed 1890s era streetscape. Mary Elizabeth chose our Fleur Bustier and Kensington Skirt. The perfect set for her sweet vintage inspired celebration.

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.
