Nothing Short of Whimsical

HAPPY HALLOWEEN BELLA BOO’S! WE WANTED TO SHARE THIS STYLED SHOOT SHOT BY OUR FRIENDS JOSH MICHAEL PHOTOGRAPHY & SARAH NASELLI WEDDINGS ON A MAGICAL DAY, SO TODAY BEING HALLOWEEN IT WAS ONLY RIGHT! OWL DARE YOU TO CONTINUE ON!

The creative Dona Liston of Lambermont events was inspired by a real wedding she put on at the castle on Grayson Street. The details pulled together throughout the historic beauty that is Lambermont Castle placed your tracks right in the Hogwarts Castle!

GOLDEN SNITCH, ANYONE?

If a Golden Snitch doesn’t sound delectable to you we’d hope that Butter Beer does! From the drinks to the bites Harry Potter himself would have been glad to be at this wedding!

We brought out two very fitting gowns for the location and theme! We had such a blast straying away from the mainstream look and just went big and bold with one of our favorite stylists, Stephanie Eiland.

Our gold accessories really picked up in the castle and highlighted the decor! How wicked is the gold headpiece in model Serena Paris’ purple hair?!

For the reception look we really brought out the whimsy: I’m talking smoke bombs (no dresses were harmed in the process), black veils, and levitation!

We chose this witchy black evening gown from Pronovias to really go for a different look from the wedding gown from Blush by Hayley Paige. Stephanie Eiland created this sppoktacular veil!

WHO WHAT WEAR JUST PUBLISHED AN INSIGHTFUL ARTICLE ON WHAT IS OUT IN BRIDAL AND WHAT TO LOOK FORWARD TO AS THE ALTERNATIVE. GEARING MORE TOWARDS THE FASHION FORWARD BRIDE WHO ISN’T AFRAID OF PUSHING THE ENVELOPE ESPECIALLY ON HER BIG DAY! CHRISTY BAIRD, BRIDAL GURU AND FOUNDER OF THE ACRONYM LOHO BRIDE (LEAGUE OF HER OWN) BREAKS DOWN WHAT TO EXPECT TO SEE ON THE EDGY BRIDES THIS YEAR.

 

 

TRADITIONAL LACE IS TAKEN OVER FOR BASKET-WEAVED GOWNS GIVING OFF A 3D EFFECT. WE’VE PREVIOUSLY BLOGGED ON HOW 3D DRAMA IS COMING TO LIFE IN DIFFERENT FORMS BUT THIS YEAR THE ACTUAL CONSTRUCTION IS TAKING ON DEPTH. RATHER THAN EMBELLISHMENTS THAT CAN BE HEAVY FORMS OF CONSTRUCTIONS LIKE BASKET WEAVING CAN BE LIGHTER.  HOW PERFECT IS THIS FOR A SUMMER WEDDING? OUR TAKE ON THIS TREND BELOW IS TAKEN ON BY OUR NEWEST TARA KEELY GOWN IN STORE!

 

 

WWW SAYS DITCH THE CAPES THIS YEAR! SHOW OFF YOUR SHOULDERS AND LEAVE THE DRAMA IN THE BACK. YOUR GUESTS ARE AFTER ALL LOOKING AT YOUR BACK FOR MOST OF THE CEREMONY! THIS SAME TARA KEELY GOWN TAKES ON A DOUBLE WHAMMY WITH ITS DETACHABLE TRAIN.

 

 

PURE WHITES CONTINUE TO FADE AWAY AS A GOWN COLOR CHOICE. NUDE UNDERLAYS WILL CONTINUE TO BE SEEN MORE THAN EVER OVER THE COURSE OF THE YEAR. DETAILS POP WITH THIS DIFFERENCE IN A WAY THAT JUST CAN’T HAPPEN WHEN YOU HAVE IVORY ON IVORY.

 

 

THE CONTRAST ON THE BODICE OF HAYLEY PAIGE’S HALO GOWN IS POSSIBLY ONE OF OUR FAVORITE EXAMPLES OF THIS TREND. COLORS ARE USUALLY FLEXIBLE WITH GOWNS SO IF THIS IS A TREND YOUR NOT WITH DON’T BE AFRAID TO ASK THE COLOR OPTIONS!

Bella's Friday Faves

WE’RE BACK WITH A NEW FAVORITE BELLA’S! INTRODUCING THE KALEA GOWN FROM THE BLUSH BY HAYLEY PAIGE COLLECTION. SHE’S THE MERMAID FRATERNAL TWIN TO HALO (ANOTHER FAVE OF OURS)!

 

 

With bold lace and an even bolder back this gown could not make a bigger statement! The combination of tulle and lace is the perfect match for the bride not looking for a whole lot of embellishments but for a gown that speaks for itself. That must be why we love this masterpiece. Occasionally we come across a bride who falls in love with a gown like this one but apart of her criteria contained BLING. We always suggest bringing the bling through a nice earring, headpiece, and veil.

 

           

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kalea can be ordered in an ivory underlay with ivory lace our gown has the nude underlay to really bring the lace out. This contrast really creates that bold effect, ivory on ivory will look slightly more traditional blending together.

 

 

 

 

 

 

HOW WE ACCESSORIZED:

 

 

We chose to bring the bling with a Marionat hair comb and a pair of our favorite Haute Bride earrings and cathedral length veil. With an intricately detailed back we chose not to take away from it with an embellished veil, the veil is simple yet so spectacular because of its length, much like the dress it makes a statement on its own.
