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.
