Brittney, in Sparkling Ines Di Santo, Marries David Lakeside

Every so often we come across photos from a bride’s wedding that are so wonderful, each and every one, that we have a difficult time whittling down our favorites into one blog post — this is one of those times. Indulge in these photos by Sloan Photographers, who so excellently captured Lovella bride Brittney in her custom Ines Di Santo gown from our salon. Her corseted tea length dress sparkled from every direction. We love that the rest of her look was so chic, so downplayed, so as to really draw attention to that special gown. The couple married at a family home on the lake in Pennsylvania; what beauty. David and Brittney are both Walt Disney Animation Studios artists, a fact which was reflected in the bride’s bouquet and wedding stationery, down to the personalized favors. This wedding was so special, it was featured on Green Wedding Shoes. Enjoy, […]

Lovella Bride Tatevik Channeled a Princess in Custom Edgardo Bonilla

If you’re looking for fairytale bridal inspiration, look no further. Lovella bride Tatevik dazzled in a custom Edgardo Bonilla ball gown with a Pronovias belt, and Maria Elena Headpieces extras, like a bun wrap (just look at the last photo of this post), earrings and cuff. Jimmy Choo shoes, a favorite of Lovella brides, completed her bridal look befitting of a princess. Of course, Tatevik was thrilled with her look. “I was entirely in love with my dress and accessories. They were more than perfection in simplicity and elegance. My groom thought the same!” And notice the sketch displayed at the ceremony? That was a complimentary gift from the designer when the bride had her dress designed; be sure to see our exclusive interview with Mr. Bonilla here. Now that’s one special, unforgettable keepsake! Tatevik and her groom Armen married in a gorgeous outdoor ceremony, then moved to Arbat Banquet […]

Genise, in a Cascading Edgardo Bonilla Dress, Marries Troy

Spring was in full bloom for the wedding of Genise and Troy. It was evident in the soft, flowing green bridesmaid dresses, the bride’s chic white bridal bouquet and barely-there veil, and an outdoor ceremony with a lush backdrop. Lovella bride Genise wore a custom-designed dress by Edgardo Bonilla from our salon. Between the gown, featuring a romantic cascading back and sweetheart bodice, a birdcage veil, and sparkling jewelry, the bride’s look was fresh, feminine, and absolutely chic. Congratulations to Genise and Troy.

Christine Marries Patrick in Custom Edgardo Bonilla Gown

Edgardo Bonilla, bridal designer and hidden gem in the wedding industry, was in our salon recently for a trunk show. Christine, one of our brides, had the incredible opportunity to work with Edgardo one-on-one to create her dream wedding gown. So what does it take to create a one-of-a-kind custom dress? Time, a vision, and a superb designer. And let us tell you, the results were dazzling. Christine went on to marry fiancé Patrick in a fabulous ceremony, and we can’t stop looking at some of their wedding photos from The Langham Huntington in Pasadena. (You can see Christine and Patrick’s engagement pictures here.) From sketch to gown, here’s a photo journey of how Christine’s custom couture creation came to be. ♥ Your Lovella Bridal Team Credits: Gown: Edgardo Bonilla / Venue: The Langham Huntington Hotel & Spa Pasadena / Photographer: Duke Photography
