Lovella bride Rachel in custom Ines Di Santo wedding dress in Lake Tahoe wedding

We’ve been waiting to post this gorgeous wedding until the right time. With much of the country experiencing freezing temperatures this past week, the time is now!

Lovella bride Rachel married Jesse in dreamy, snowy Lake Tahoe.

Rachel stunned in an Ines Di Santo dress and Maria Elena Headpieces hairpiece, earrings and veil, all from Lovella Bridal. The Lovella bride’s summation: “My dress was absolutely amazing and everyone could not believe how beautiful it was. I could not thank you enough for all of your help to modify and fit the dress so perfectly for me. It was truly an incredible experience to have Ines there when I found my dress, to have her draw up the modifications, and celebrate me finding my one-of-a-kind dress. Also, the veil and Maria Elena accessories paired so beautifully with the dress.”

She purchased her gown during a Lovella Ines Di Santo trunk show, and then worked with the world renowned designer to customize the neckline and train to create her ultimate dream gown; see comparison photos below. In fact, this is just one of the many perks a bride can enjoy by attending our Ines Di Santo Trunk Show on November 21-25, 2013: the opportunity to meet with the designer one-on-one. More on that below!

NOW, on to Rachel and Jesse’s wintery January 2013 wedding. They married at a Lake Tahoe golf club with a perfect wintery backdrop, both indoors and out. Outside, a white January landscape. Inside, white florals, blue accents, and sparkling silver linens. Also, crystals, faux wintery white trees and snow, and lights illuminated to reveal shapes of snowflakes. Oh, and the couple performed THE unforgettable Dirty Dancing dance sequence for the crowd. What a way to “wow” guests!

If after seeing this wedding you’re especially dreaming of your own glamorous gown, Ines Di Santo will be in town next week for the unveiling of our brand new salon (you’re invited). Bonus: She will make a one day in-store appearance and offer one-on-one consultations for visiting brides. All you need to do is schedule an appointment, then mark your calendars for November 21.

Enjoy the photos from Rachel and Jesse’s wedding, taken by Theilen Photography, and a belated congratulations to a wonderful couple.
