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.
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.

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.
Rural Virginia, the softest palette, and regal details set the scene for this editorial shoot. Iolite, our sequined silk georgette caftan, is luxe in fabric and detailing and laid-back in silhouette. If a simple elopement in the open air is your dream, follow the lead of Luxe and Luna Couture Events and keep it minimal with rich details for next level lovely.
