Artemisia's Enchanted Garden

Romance is back!  It's time to wallow in the glorious feeling of layers of luxurious silk chiffon literally whipping around your body. The Artemisia gown clearly knows.   Plus, what's more romantic than a sweet wedding swing in the garden?  The answer:   sharing that wedding day moment with your new partner. 

And isn't this the most wonderful version of a bridal fishtail hairstyle you've seen?  Yes.

Inspiration: Downton by Jodi Miller

The Downtown gown feels right at home in this shoot on the grounds of Middleton Place in Charleston, SC.   Between her dreamy pastel silvers and vintage inspired crystal embellishment, this gown has earned its spot in our top ten all time favorites.

Among the elk

Welcome to a nature lover's dream!  

The ease of the Iolite and Forsythia gowns are truly highlighted in an outdoor setting like this one.  Who needs a constricting, fitted gown when you could instead feel the sweet summer breezes flutter through the most delicate of floaty silk georgette?  Comfort is a beautiful thing.



Happily Yours, 


Real Weddings: Meet Sara

Here comes a tearjerker!  This super sweet, intimate celebration gave us all the feels!

Sara and Garrick were married with their nearest and dearest during a day that included a visit to the ice cream shop, some seriously good art murals, and a clear desire to do things their own way.  We love how Sara paired the Nymphea bodice and skirt with the Sequined Smoking Jacket for a look that says I'm here to party!

Inspiration: Rooftop reception in Chicago

Perched on a rooftop in Chicago, the Paeonia skirt and Fleur bustier were paired with fresh pops of blues, poppy, and peach for a private reception of simple elegance.    A sweeping train with sweeping views:  low key drama with high style!

Inspiration: Euphorbia

The Euphorbia gown has over 120 yards of silk organza in her tiered ruffles.  I mean, if we're doing ruffles, let's not be shy about it!   (see also: the Flutura)  I love the combo here of opulent and if Marie Antoinette suddenly found chill and let her hair down.  Let them eat wedding cake!

Inspiration: Lavender Fields Forever

Utah friends, have you been to the lavender fields at Young Living Farm in Mona? Tiffany of Tiffany Sangster Photography tells us they bloom for only about a month in late June, so they had the tiniest window to dream up this shoot in. As you can see with this beauty of a wedding cake from Cupcakes by Julie, the team let the fields inspire every inch of their purple wedding vignette. This ring from Wilson Diamonds. Talk about a stunner! They chose it for a nod to both contemporary and classic wedding styles. Tiffany says, We were inspired to go a different route from the boho chic that you have seen before, but instead go more of a modern love story. My first thought went straight to Carol Hannah Bridal, all her dresses have a beautiful flow to them and yet still retain that modern style that is up to date with today’s high fashion. The Potted Pansy, with her breathtaking floral arrangements, were perfect for this shoot as well.
