Real Brides: Meet Mariette

March 10th, 2015

Mariette and Nick’s gorgeous Asheville, NC wedding has us dreaming in blush and ivory.  Mariette chose Fortuna, a silk faille and tulle fit and flare gown just dripping with detail, but added her own twist by going with the palest pink hue throughout (even the veil!).  Throw in a blush silk faille custom bow tie for the groom {shop here} and these two take the cake!

Inspiration Shoot: Monticello + Rustic White

March 4th, 2015

To me, the Monticello gown is unapologetically romantic.  Its ethereal chiffon layers, blush undertone, and organic draping lend itself wonderfully to this shoot with Rustic White Photography.  How beautiful is this lovely winter light combined with the beautiful marsala and blush florals and fine papers?

Maddie & Tae wear Carol Hannah in “Fly”

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!
