“On a day when the wind is perfect, the sail just needs to open and the world is full of beauty.
Today is such a day.” -Rumi
Allison Markova is the lady behind the lens for this inspiration shoot. Billowing and beautiful, our Ianassa gown floats across the sand, dynamic and radiant. On the beach next to the lapping waves and kissed by the end of day sun is Ianassa's happy place.
Rooftop garden oasis I-do's in the heart of NYC. Nicole and Ben wanted a non-traditional, intimate, outdoor ceremony and reception and they found just the spot for their 60 guests at the David Burke Kitchen in New York's SoHo neighborhood. Lush greenery, flowers and the view of the freedom tower wowed guests. Nicole and Ben did away with a number of wedding traditions and opted for an extended cocktail hour, gourmet slider and truffle fry bar, boozy beignets, dancing and a GIF booth in place of a photo booth (LOVE!). Nicole knew she didn't want a white gown from the get-go and ended her search when she chose a two piece including a custom skirt, our Mulberry made in the pale aqua and gold chevron silk jaquard of our Azurite gown. Perfection for this sunny, September love-fest.

All hail Persephone, the Goddess of Spring. This amazing shoot from Lynette Boyle conjures dancing flowers and fairies alight in enchanted woods. The light-as-a-feather silk chiffon and crepe de chine of our Celestine gown make it perfect goddess wear. That lush floral crown is giving us major butterflies and leaving us dreaming of eternal summer.
Come float away with us on this dreamy, billowy, sublime shoot captured by Kelly Sauer of Exquisitrie, featuring our Celestine gown. Layered natural white, ivory, and nude silk chiffon and crepe de chine are ready to take flight at the water's edge. Fluid and fantastic, Celestine is every boho bride's dream come true.
The sweetest love imaginable. So Beryl and James had planned to get married awhile back, but you know what they say of the best laid plans. A little (completely adorable) surprise came along and postponed their original timeline. The couple wed this October, and their celebration was all the richer for it. They were able to celebrate with their beautiful baby girl! Beryl chose our Middleton Place gown and Braided Sparkle Belt, the perfect ensemble for their boho, Australian I dos.
Siren and sailor. We are completely seduced by this driftwood inspiration shoot by Emily Katharine of The Ganeys. It looks as though our Monticello gown has walked right out of the sea. The draped chiffon gown's washed silk and organic texture embodying the currents and waves themselves. With every detail perfected, from the abalone table runner to the delicate coral cake topper, and that sun-bleached bouquet, this seaside love story is one for the ages.
