We shared photos of our new salon, and then the fashion, and now it’s time to take those and some fun and roll it into one: the celebration!

Welcome to the third and final installment of our series documenting the grand reopening of Lovella Bridal on Wednesday, November 20, 2013.

Designers Ines Di Santo, Jorge Manuel, Edgardo Bonilla and Maria Elena Fuentes all flew in from across the country for the event.

The list of vendors (and friends) who went above and beyond the call of duty to make this night a memorable one for all involved is at the bottom of this post.

We’ll let these photos by Duke Photography do the rest of the talking. (And this is only a sampling; view more on our Facebook page.) Enjoy!
