We are spellbound. This recipe of an Ines Di Santo ball gown, perfect pastel florals, gilded couture cakes, and impeccable styling make this shoot almost too fabulous to handle.

Krista Fox and Paige Lewis once again make magic in this Elegant Wedding spread, “Parisian Princess.” The shoot was recently featured on Style Me Pretty too, under the guise of a Maria Antoinette theme. (Click on both links to view many more photos.)

If you love this off-the-shoulder Ines Di Santo gown, we’re positive we carry a similar style by the designer that you’ll love; contact us for more information.

Prepare to be inspired. Enjoy!

selecting a wedding dress at Lovella Bridal

In case you missed it, we offered our expertise on Bridal Fashion for eHow.com, one of the premiere sites in free educational online articles and videos. We filmed a series of ten short and sweet video clips in which Nayri of Lovella dishes out bridal fashion advice. Read more about the series here.

Exclusively for our followers and fans, we’ll highlight each video and Nayri will include an extra nugget of advice not included in the video!

In the video titled “Who Should Go to Pick Out the Wedding Dress?”, Nayri gives a perfect solution to the common conundrum of who to bring when selecting that all-important gown: save the decision makers for when you’ve already narrowed down your options to your absolute favorites.

“It’s very important to bring in those who share your same fashion vision,” she shares in the video. If you want to include those who may not share your vision, visit alone prior to including them. Select the gowns you love so you can limit opinions later when you roll in those people you’d like involved in the selection. “And now you’re just including them in the final decision making process.”

Nayri’s bonus advice: “For the bride who plans on bringing a large entourage: let the bridal salon know ahead of time so they are prepared to reserve a space to accommodate you and your guests comfortably during your appointment.”

Ines Di Santo wedding dress

We love smiles; this wedding had no shortage of them!

Brandon and Jacquelyn married at the seaside award-winning Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach, California. Their ceremony and reception venues were decorated in white and ivory florals, setting the tone for a parred-down but chic, elegant wedding.

Lovella Bride Jacquelyn impressed in a custom Ines Di Santo gown from our salon. The dress featured an embellished bust and halter, routing from the waist to the hips, making way to a beautifully-textured skirt that floated so effortlessly with Jacquelyn’s every move. Sparkling Maria Elena Headpieces jewelry from our salon accompanied her bespoke wedding dress: bracelet, earrings and headpiece. What a heavenly look!

If you love Jacquelyn’s wedding dress, then this weekend’s for you: we’re hosting an Ines Di Santo Trunk Show July 18-20. The event is by appointment only, and it’s not too late to book the chance to select and design your dream gown. Call us at (818) 246-4637.

This wedding looks like it was an absolute blast! No doubt the new wave band of the evening contributed to the event’s high energy. Congrats to Brandon and Jacquelyn! Enjoy these photos from Lin & Jirsa.
