Inspiration: Oceane by Elizabeth Anne Designs

Sweet and sultry, this garden wedding inspiration shoot from Elizabeth Anne Designs is as saccharine as spun sugar and glam as can be. The playful cotton candy bouquet (from Lush Puff) plays well with the layers and layers of draped tulle in our Oceane ballgown. The smoky eye and black details add sophisticated edginess. Candy and dark deails, inspo perfectly suited to the spook of the season.

Real Weddings: Meet Emilie

Emilie and Bryan rented an entire villa in Gordes to host 25 of their nearest and dearest for this destination wedding. The group spent a week making memories in Provence, culminating in this sweet ceremony. Simple elegance touched every detail, from the bride's beautifully natural hair and make up to the delightful pastel blooms by Laetitia C. Fleurs d'Atelier. Vine covered stone walls, a field of poppies, and cobblestone streets create the ideal European stage for this love story to unfold. And of course, our heroine is clad in a dreamy, gold foiled open weave linen ballgown (our Senara). Like the best vacation photos, these memories are almost tangible and leave us wanting to return.

Inspiration: Celestine and Iolite in Autumn

Autum is a second Spring when every leaf is a flower. -Albert Camus

This styled shoot by Sophie Brendle Photography celebrates the rich jewel tones, soft afternoon light and changing foliage of the season. It is as though the abundant outdoors have come in. Giving a rustic feel to the simple, clean interior, the overgrown flowers, branches, grasses and leaves have reclaimed the space and left one bouquet remarkably long, like Rapunzel's hair long, and just as enchanting. Both our Iolite and Celestine are perfectly at home in this semi-industrial floral masterpiece. Just right for the bride looking for a flowing gown fit for modern romance.

Real Weddings: Meet Katie

Katie and Christian were married in the great Upper Peninsula of Michigan, a place Christian's family has been returning to every summer for three generations. And a place that has become very special to this bride and groom over their last 12 years together. When Katie and Christian decided to get married, the U.P. offered the perfect setting. They said their I-dos on Sand Point Beach and their reception was held at the Beach Inn Motel. Breathtaking waterfalls, an Air Force jacket named Jerry (that only shows up at the best parties), a pup named Hyla, and all those pies made this one wedding loaded with personal touches. Katie chose our Citrine Gown whose ease and gracefulness was perfect for her woodland and beach settings. She finished the look with a custom headpiece and knit wrap. Congratulations you two!

Real Weddings: Meet Della

Dream dress, dazzling location, true love. Della and Anwar were married at the gorgeous Decameron Resort in Panama. Talk about a magnificent destination! This resort is right on the beach, just off the Gulf of Panama. Della chose a completely custom gown in gold tones with tons of shimmer. She looked like a royal mermaid in head-to-toe sequins. We love that she finished her look off with the touching addition of her grandmother's veil.

Inspiration: Adella by Chelsea Q

”When he takes me in his arms,
and speaks to me softly,
I see the world through rose-colored glasses”


This shoot from Chelsea Q White, features our Adella gown, and it is a classic. A true 'French Girl' fairytale. Beguiling and self assured, all fresh faced and dark, perfectly carefree hair. This timeless beauty and her castle are European elegance embodied.

Real Weddings: Meet Shanna

Shanna chose our La Reine skirt and Alliette bustier.  She and John were married at one of the most stately alters after being serenaded by Scottish bagpipes. Following the ceremony the couple entertained their guests at the Liberty House in Jersey City. Dancing the night away in one of the most decadent ballrooms around, with killer views of Manhattan none-the-less. Congratulations you two!

Inspired: Fleur Bustier and Chambord Skirt by Jodi Miller

Sometimes the simplest styling packs such a punch! Take this shoot created by Kendal of Q|A Designs for example. Kendal chose to showcase a few of our separates and just look at how she rocked them (of course, Venita Aspen, with those oh-so-long lashes, natural hair and that mega watt smile helped make the job easier). We love that Kendal left the Fleur Bustier untucked from our Chambord Skirt creating a little crop top goodness. And how 'bout the drama of the Cloud Nine Capelet in those last few shots. All white washed, sun lit goodness.

Real Weddings: Meet Dunja

Dunja and Johnny said their I-dos at Topping Rose House, a luxury haven in the heart of the Hamptons. Dunja wowed in our Heritage Bustier, Kensington skirt, and All That Glitters Sash. There are a number of unique touches that make this day so special. The couple and their guests indulged in a drool-worthy cake made of artisanal cheeses in addition to their traditional sweet cakes. This may be the first time we have seen wedding drone photography, and we've gotta say, it's excellent! Scroll on to see the bride doing her part to liven up the dance floor with a little impromptu tambourine playing.
