Summer’s in full swing, and what says “summer” more than the Fourth of July? Across blogs and websites, there’s no shortage of patriotic wedding and entertaining ideas. However, much of the inspiration involves a classic touch or vintage twist. Either that’s the trend now in general, antiques and vintage, or simply a throwback with good ol’ Americana. Either way, we’re sold! Enjoy the inspiration in faded red, white and blue. May your Fourth be full of festivities and fun, but also incredible pride in our country, its storied past, and ultimately our independence as a country.

Lovella Bride Lily in Liancarlo. That has such a nice ring to it. Lily and her groom Kevin married in style at The US Grant luxury and historic hotel in downtown San Diego. With people like Karen Tran in charge of florals and Duke Khodaverdian behind the lens, you know you have one amazing occasion on your hands. The bride wore a devastatingly romantic wedding dress by Liancarlo from our salon. Her gown featured a corset bodice complete with sweetheart neckline, and a lovely tulle-coated skirt. With a headpiece and Maria Elena Headpieces earrings (from Lovella) as her jewelry, dazzling earth tone Jimmy Choo shoes, barely-there polished nails, and a sweet bouquet with a touch of pale pink, Lily’s bridal look was nothing short of luminous. Bridesmaids mimicked the bride’s stunning look in Amsale bridesmaid dresses, also from Lovella Bridal. The couple’s wedding was set amidst a scene straight out […]
Indulge in viewing these towering confections fit for a spring wedding. Height, even if only an illusion (with, say, stuffed florals between tiers), is the name of the game more than ever. We love the idea of building up instead of out. Do you suppose taller is better? We do. Enjoy! Credits: 1 Corina V.

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!

This uber cute, feminine and frilly dessert display shared originally here. We are absolutely giddy over this lovely dessert table. This setup is every girl’s dream, complete with bowls and jars of sumptuous pink florals, countless sugary delights like shimmering cake pops and raspberry-topped tarts on display, and adorable calligraphed signs that are surely too pretty to discard. Enjoy this on your Monday! Credits: Photography: Sewell Photography / Concept & Design: Eat Drink Pretty / Cake: Sweets Bakeshop.
