Twenty years of rolling out one exquisite piece after the next is definitely cause for celebration!
Lovella Bridal Wedding Fashion Specialists Nayri and Kristina (above) flew from LA to Miami for a lavish event celebrating Maria Elena’s twenty years in the business. The bash was held at Maria Elena’s daughter’s home in the Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami. It was the perfect evening with perfect weather.
Attendees included world-famous bridal designer Ines Di Santo, and her daughter Veronica Di Santo, Monte Durham of Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta, Bridal Expo Chicago’s Jim Verraros and Bill Brennan, and other leaders in the industry.
In the photos below you’ll also see Gisele Del Busto, Maria Elena’s all-knowing collection accessory stylist/designer representative who comes to all our trunk shows and styles our brides. “She’s taught me so much about accessories and is so talented at what she does! For my wedding I will literally stand in my dress and say “style me,” said Nayri. “That’s how much I trust her taste and unique ways of using the pieces – simply impeccable!”
Stay tuned for part two, where we’ll share exclusive photos of all the pieces that were on display during the party.
