Real Weddings: Meet Emilie

Emilie and Bryan rented an entire villa in Gordes to host 25 of their nearest and dearest for this destination wedding. The group spent a week making memories in Provence, culminating in this sweet ceremony. Simple elegance touched every detail, from the bride's beautifully natural hair and make up to the delightful pastel blooms by Laetitia C. Fleurs d'Atelier. Vine covered stone walls, a field of poppies, and cobblestone streets create the ideal European stage for this love story to unfold. And of course, our heroine is clad in a dreamy, gold foiled open weave linen ballgown (our Senara). Like the best vacation photos, these memories are almost tangible and leave us wanting to return.

Real Weddings: Meet Alicia

There were so many things to love about Alicia and Dan's big day. First, this wedding was a surprise to the couple's guests; their nearest and dearest had been invited to Alicia and Dan's "going away party." As they arrived, friends and family were handed wedding invitations, SURPRISE! Second, there was the bride's finery. Alicia wore our Kensington Shorty, which was just right for enjoying this low-key, country road, outdoor wedding. And if that isn't enough to love there was the waterfall, dancing, vegan doughnuts, and a roaring bonfire. Congratulations on pulling off such an excellent, intimate celebration you two!

Real Weddings: Meet Ellie

We appreciate a couple who really make their wedding their own and Ellie and Cassady did it their way! This duo took inspiration from the desert lifestyle of the 70's and present day Ojai California. Ellie styled our Kensington skirt, layering it over her battenburg lace sheath, for the ultimate boho look.
