Between Los Angeles and Palm Springs is Redlands, a city where snow-capped mountains meet palm trees and desert landscape.
With a glorious estate as this shoot’s backdrop, the first piece of success was achieved. A handful of gowns, bouquets, vintage postcards, the exquisite work of many professionals, and an abundance of photographs later, inspiration emerged.
Stay tuned for a more complete look of this shoot!

On Saturday, August 9, 2014, reality star Jennifer Bunney wed Taylor Dunphy in Palos Verdes, California. Bunney starred in hit shows Laguna Beach and The Hills.
Unofficial wedding photos have surfaced thanks to the use of a wedding hashtag, and we have a myriad to share!
Us Weekly got the exclusive scoop, reporting the bride’s “strapless wedding gown had a sweetheart neckline with beaded embellishments” by the one-and-only Matthew Christopher. Christopher, a designer whose gowns we carry, has been a popular choice by celebrities as of late. Just last month singer and actress Kristin Chenoweth performed at London’s Royal Albert Hall wearing a strapless gown by the designer.
We love this classic, romantic gown and offer the same style in our salon. Mrs. Dunphy looked absolutely fabulous in it, and you can too! In fact, we’re hosting a Matthew Christopher Trunk Show August 22-24, 2014; contact us to schedule an appointment.
In the meantime, enjoy the images from this fabulous California event.
