Real Wedding: Meet Lourdes

Well, hello gorgeous! Lourdes looks smashing in the Coralia gown! 

This wedding's beautiful neutral palette is abundant in textures and natural elements that are perfectly balanced!  We love the freshness of the wandering florals combined with the crispness of the clear acrylic chairs with dashes of gold and silver here and there. Refined elegance at it's finest! 

Congrats lovebirds!  Thank you for letting us be a part of this stunning day!

Real Weddings: Meet Katy

Katy and Aaron tied the knot in Valle de Guadalupe. Never heard of it? We hadn't either...until Katy introduced us to it. Turns out Valle de Guadalupe is Mexico's wine country and we all need to go, like, yesterday!!! This trail blazing couple wanted to do something different that felt truly and uniquely them. As foodies and travel buffs this special place fit the bill. Katy wore our Coralia gown.  From the bride: "She was unlike any dress I had ever seen, and I was particularly drawn to the unique texture of the fabric. Later, when so much of our wedding became about textures: brightly woven fabrics purchased from indigenous women which served as table runners for naked wooden tables, the natural patterns of tile, wood, and stone found throughout Bruma, where our wedding was held, I would look back on that moment, when I fell in love with the texture of Coralia before anything else, as a moment that shaped the event that our wedding would become." Yep, meant to be. Isn't it great how life works out like that?! Congratulations you two.

Real Weddings: Meet Larissa

Larissa and Michael's celebration at the Green Building takes the proverbial cake. This end-of-summer, Brooklyn wedding is industrial romance at its finest. Larissa's birdcage veil and jeweled t-straps bring a little vintage glam while her peek-a-boo tattoos and urban locale add a little edge.

Inspiration: Coralia by Elizabeth Fogarty

This is one for the girly girl in all of us. Pink, peach and prettily pastel, this flowery inspiration shoot was created by a team of floral designers (not surprised) and it could not be more delightful! Blooms galore and a whole floral wall? Consider us charmed.

Inspiration: Coralia shot by Valentina Glidden

This inspiration for this shoot started with the location and we can see why. The Mission San Juan Capistrano was founded in 1776. The historic stonework, the bells of its Great Stone Church, and the graceful arches transport you to another era. The spirit of our Coralia gown is made manifest in the rustic courtyard, along the cobblestone paths. Also, can we talk about all of the texture going on in this shoot? Coralia's subtle banding and warm tone is pastel perfection amidst the earthy masonry, partnered with that gorgeous bouquet. We are so thankful for the preservation of this gorgeous place and for this über talented team.

Inspiration: Coralia and Ianassa at Globe Dye Works by Love Me Do Photography

Coralia and Ianassa are two very different dresses that were both captured expertly in this inspiration shoot from Love Me Do PhotographyIanassa, our iridescent silk chiffon wave gown, and its gorgeous blue-greens billowed beautifully against the exterior, industrial backdrop. And our more structured Coralia was hauntingly framed by the raw and faded interior at Globe Dye Works.
