Preview: Romantic Redlands, California Estate Shoot

Between Los Angeles and Palm Springs is Redlands, a city where snow-capped mountains meet palm trees and desert landscape. It was a pleasure to again team up with Beatrice of RomaBea Images; we always know that her photographic eye will give justice to our shop’s designer wedding gowns. 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!

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.

Memorable Moments Fashion Shoot

This shoot, made possible by Memorable Moments, LLC (with a complete list of vendors below), served up classic wedding style with a generous helping of passion and intrigue.

The model bride, in a La Sposa gown from our salon, did a marvelous job of emulating a fashionable woman on her wedding day.

Lovella Loves…

This dazzling architectural creation by Santa Monica’s own The Butter End Cakery. In fact, you may recall our Architectural Cakes post from earlier this year; this design would have surely fit the theme of this post to a “T.” Recently we featured an urban-cool Venice bridal shoot on our blog. One element we kept under wraps was this fabulous cake. In fact, shoot photographer Brian Leahy had nothing but raves for the Cakery’s baker, Kim Bailey. Noted Brian, Kim was asked to create “a sort of “deconstructed” cake and we left the rest to her. After delivery and setup we were left staring at the coolest 3-tiered, 3-level cake supported by hand-poured concrete bases and steel posts.” Enjoy this exquisitely-crafted eye candy!
