So not every bride is a princess and not every bride needs a castle but we are SO into this twist on the fairytale. Our Grand Palais has been beautifully captured by Perry Vaile in the Old Sheldon Church Ruins just outside of Charleston. The dilapidated gothic architecture and gnarled oaks give this shoot edge and makes it the perfect counterpoint to our flowing blush Grand Palais.
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.

Oh, the ritual and romance of the veil. Optional in today's wedding landscape, the allure of the veil is not lost on us. We think you'll agree that its feminine mystery and intrigue are perfectly captured here, by Perry Vaile, during The School of Styling. Citrine stands pretty sans veil as well. Clearly accessories are not required!
Just a little bridal-goes-boudoir to get in the spirit of the season, Valentine's Day that is! There are so many ways to style our accessories after your big day. Take it from us, our Phoenix Capelet is happy adding some sparkle to your favorite LBD, paired with your tank and jeans, or (as you see here) even worn over nothing at all!
