Maddie & Tae wear Carol Hannah in “Fly”

February 23rd, 2015

You can take the designer out of the south, but you sure can’t take the south out of the designer!

I’ve been so looking forward to sharing this gorgeous music video from country duo Maddie & Tae’s new song “Fly”.  Styled by Krista Roser, the girls look stunning in our Azurite and Malachite gowns!  What a dreamy shoot!

Real Weddings: Meet Kate

February 16th, 2015

This real wedding speaks to my heart!  With its rich color palette of moody blues paired with rust and fresh pastels, this Brooklyn affair is the perfect balance of organic and elegant. Kate opted for the unexpected in the pale silver Downton gown, and we think she did it right!

Real Weddings: Meet Jessika

February 9th, 2015

This week’s real wedding comes to us from Sonoma wine country.  I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Jessika at our trunk show at Lovely Bride in Los Angeles, and together we came up with the double feature of the Middleton gown with the Chambord overskirt for her rustic California wedding. The result is bright, happy, and full of light…much like Jessika herself!

Real Weddings: Meet Kelsey

February 3rd, 2015

Kensington is one of my all time favorite gowns.  The simplicity of the silk jersey ballet tank paired with softly draped open weave linen layers has a romance and casual elegance to it that just strikes all the right chords.   Kelsey’s intimate backyard wedding in Michigan was  so clearly planned with personal connection to each of the thirty attendees in mind and perfectly matched Kensginton’s relaxed vibes. Such a sweet celebration!
