If you're feeling the harsh of the winter like we are here in NYC, come with us on this inspirational adventure to Maui courtesy of Matthew Ree photography and our Celestine gown. Can't you just feel that wind whip through your hair and the train of chiffon tugging as you walk through the sand? Sighhhhh, a girl can dream.
Beach weddings have a special place in my heart - there's just something about communing with nature that lends itself to the celebration of love. Maybe it's the reminder of the simple things in life. The raw elements of sand and sea need no decoration and the world is stripped away for that moment of all its complications and distractions.
With that in mind, Celestine suits the mood just right. Ease and grace and a touch of wild abandon make this dress the perfect breezy alternative to the norm of constraint and structure.
Have you ever fantasized about eloping? Just you, your love and a gown, wherever your heart desires? This inspiration shoot has us nearly sold on the option. Follow in Beth Morgan Cowan's footsteps and kick out whatever tradition doesn't suit you and fill the space with personal touches like she did here with rugged terrain, edginess, and raw beauty. The ritual exchange of vows should be emblematic of your love. We say, only hold on to the customs that speak to you and always wear the dress of your dreams.
Cait and Phill’s wedding in the Catskill Mountains of New York was a sight to behold! A little 1920s Art Deco, a little boho, a little rustic and all kinds of pretty. This couple is all about the outdoors and wanted their wedding to feel like a barn party. The couple hiked to Kaaterskill Falls for their first look photos, crafted a vintage crescent moon photo backdrop, and gifted goodie bags filled with s’mores to their guests. If rustic-vintage-glam was the vision, we say mission accomplished!

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.
Natalie and Garrett's Palm Springs wedding was DIY Boho beauty at its finest. Natalie handmade all of the macramé decor. The guest's seating cards were made from photos of the couple's favorite adventures together. Natalie's mom even baked all of the cookies for the welcome bags! The Ace hotel in Palm Springs was the perfect venue with its ultra-cool, desert vibe. The bride chose our Plié Bodice + Kensington Skirt, which was just right for this laid back, free-spirited celebration.
Check out Natalie and Garett's equally charming vintage VW bus engagement session here.
