Inspiration: Erato by Ashley Rae

These hauntingly beautiful images of our Erato gown were captured by Ashley Rae Photography. The love story they tell is one of weighted anticipation. The moody images pack a punch with their high contrast lighting and that billowing gown. Breathtaking in their luminosity, we wait on bated breath, along with this bride, for the arrival of her groom.

Inspiration: Erato by Paul Simon

The raw power of the ocean and the raw beauty of our Erato are perfectly matched in this shoot by Paul Simon Photography and Janna Brown Design. The castles in the sand backdrop is straight out of a dreamscape, a reality we can hardly believe exists on the shores of Newport California. All movement, all drama, all as it should be by the sea.

Inspiration: Erato by Danford Photography

Sarah Watts, of Sarah's Garden, and Jesse and Karen, of Danford Photography, combined forces and we are thankful to have gone along for the journey.  The team took our Erato Gown and cathedral length Heritage Veil on an outing to Boyce Thompson Arboretum. Botanical beauty combined with the most luminous sky and the following alchemy transpired!

Inspiration: Siren's Call with Perry Vaile

The magic and mystery of the sea was the inspiration for the Siren Call Collection. This styled shoot, by Perry Vaile and Ashley Rhodes Event Design, brought it to life exactly as it was meant to be; dramatic, impressive, breathtaking, and sublime.
