Spotted: Jenny McCarthy Marries Donnie Wahlberg in Ines Di Santo Gown

On Sunday, August 31, 2014, model and actress Jenny McCarthy wed singer and actor Donnie Wahlberg just outside of Chicago. Us Weekly promptly got the exclusive scoop and photos. Lucky us!

Niecy Nash Shined in Maria Elena Headpiece

We were inundated with phone calls and e-mails once the world set eyes on bride Niecy Nash’s sparkling Maria Elena statement headpiece. We offer a fantastic selection of Maria Elena pieces in our two salons not only because each creation is a work of art, but because each is romantic and timeless (as Nash demonstrated so well!). Each accessory is handcrafted in Miami with Swarovski crystals, fresh water pearls and semi-precious stones. Maria Elena Headpieces creations are fantastic heirloom pieces that can be passed down from generation to generation thanks to their durability as well as to the the non-tarnishing metal with which each accessory is made. In fact, the pieces are so special that each and every one is inspected and approved by Maria Elena herself. We hope to have more on Maria Elena Headpieces incredibly soon… ♥ Your Lovella Bridal Team
