A Brazilian tradition, the bride placed the names of all her single friends in the hem of her gown to bring them the same good luck in finding a partner.

Shine on, you crazy diamond!

June 6th, 2014

This time of year, our studio is all a’glitter with new accessories and projects.  These are some of my favorite shots from what we’ve been working on recently.

Sequins!  Custom fabrics!Romantic chiffon draping in this custom Juniper gownThe Oyster Jacket, now in blush!

The Oyster jacket, newly in blush sequin, is one of my all time faves.  I like to throw it on with jeans too.  Instant glam.

Sequins!  Custom fabrics!

We have these beauties woven especially for us.  All in the details!

Easy Drama!

A preview of our new sparkly wraps, soon to be available!  Ridiculously fun and festive.

Phoenix sparkly capelets add glamour to any gown!

The Phoenix capelet is such a fun, versatile piece.   Shown here on the Winchester gown, this dazzler can completely change your look.  Twenties, art deco with an edge.
Sparkly Accessories for all!

SO many belts! My current favorite is the Hidden Treasures.

Real Wedding: Meet Brenna

June 1st, 2014

Brenna’s beautiful wedding so perfectly blends traditional details with the unexpected.

 Her pastel color palette looks fresh and soft when paired with her blush and champagne Kensington skirt and custom alencon lace bodice with keyhole back.  A family heirloom veil was the ultimate finishing touch, adding layers of floating tulle and lace.

Inspiration Shoot: Ariella Chezar + Corbin Gurkin

April 20th, 2014

We love these dramatic shots of the Belmont gown paired with the floral genius of Ariella Chezar, photographed by Corbin Gurkin.  Belmont’s pale silver hue is just the perfect shade to combine with these gorgeous bouquets!  Ariella has such a talent for creating arrangements with a natural, unfussy, slightly wild feel and I have fallen in love with her style.  And of course Corbin continues to make me wish I could see the world through the lens of her camera everyday.

{If you follow me on instagram, you might recognize her work from the beautiful arrangements that grace our studio as well!}
