Real Weddings: Meet Rachel

You know how they say everything is bigger in Texas?   It's clear that this love is like that. Rachel and Kevin mixed clean lines and modern sensibility with their rustic setting and turned out an event just as chic as can be. They chose lucite details, lots of white and an altar that seemed just made to frame the sun. The style certainly carried though to the wedding part too! Check out those bridesmaids in pantsuits and super dapper dudes. We love the crisp contours of our Heritage Bustier + La Reine Skirt (simplified) in this setting, specifically the juxtaposition of this combo in the fields of prairie grass and against the expanse of corrugated metal.  Rachel and Kevin under those clouds, against the clear blue sky, saying I do as the sun sets...if there is a more storybook setting for starting your life as husband and wife we can't imagine it. Congratulations you two!

Real Weddings: Meet Dunja

Dunja and Johnny said their I-dos at Topping Rose House, a luxury haven in the heart of the Hamptons. Dunja wowed in our Heritage Bustier, Kensington skirt, and All That Glitters Sash. There are a number of unique touches that make this day so special. The couple and their guests indulged in a drool-worthy cake made of artisanal cheeses in addition to their traditional sweet cakes. This may be the first time we have seen wedding drone photography, and we've gotta say, it's excellent! Scroll on to see the bride doing her part to liven up the dance floor with a little impromptu tambourine playing. 

Inspiration: Heritage//La Ciel + Phoenix Capelet

Rustic romance. Perfectly weathered wood and metals, warm peach and blush florals, and flirtation in the air transport us straight to the French countryside. This inspiration shoot from Lauren Fair Photography reminds us that spring is right around the corner.

Real Weddings: Meet Frances

Frances and Ralph were married at the Thomas Bennet House in Charleston. The home, circa 1825, is one of the most magnificent homes in the city. It has been lovingly restored. It offers equally gorgeous interior and outdoor spaces, just the right fit for this classic southern wedding. The garden's traditional beauty, with its large brick courtyard and fountain, was perfect for saying "I do" and then partying into the night. Frances chose an ultra-romantic look with our Heritage Bustier, Customized La Reine Skirt, and Empress Veil for her ceremony. Then she danced the night away in our La Reine Shorty. As you can see this couple partied like royalty!

Real Weddings: Meet Emily

Emily and Chris were very conscious about keeping their wedding day simple. Emily chose our Kensington Skirt and Heritage Bustier and was the epitome of relaxed elegance. Their ceremony took place at the historic Wickliffe House in Charleston. Their outdoor reception featured boiled peanuts and a bourbon and cigar bar, where everyone was encouraged to relax under the stars.
