Elisabeth, in Berta Bridal Marries Marcus

We are honored to bring you Lovella Bride Elisabeth who’s wedding was captured by Elizabeth Messina and recently featured on SMP! As we approach our Berta Bridal trunk show this weekend –We celebrate with this remarkable wedding where the bride-to-be absolutely glowed in her Berta Bridal gown! “Our wedding was nothing short of a beautiful/crazy combo of excitement, romance, and pure emotion. My favorite moments were at the alter where under an orchid adorned chuppah we opened our hearts open to one another as we shared our intentions and dreams in creating a future together. While everyone says your wedding day will fly by in a blink of an eye (and it does), it was those moments before we met at the alter that I’ll really cherish.” -Elisabeth, the bride Congratulations to the bride & groom and their bundle of Joy that is on the way! It’s been Lovella’s absolute honor to have […]

Hailey, Weds Kyle in Three Magnificent Gowns

We have been impatiently anticipating the sensational wedding photos of our Lovella Bride Hailey featured on LoveLuxeLife! When Hailey arrived at Lovella Bridal she had a clear vision of desiring multiple looks diversely beautiful  for her big day! Hailey and Kyle tied the knot at the Four Seasons, Los Angeles earlier this year! Hailey wore three dresses from Lovella Bridal! For her ceremony dress she opted for a classic gold and ivory Lazaro lace ball gown with a modern deconstructed skirt – Layers of airy tulle finished with horsehair trimming for a full bodied look! Second dress of the evening also designed by Lazaro is an  ivory beaded and embroidered fit to flare gown with a shredded organza skirt. Classic glamour, yet fun! Last but most defiantly not least the third gown of the evening was a fully beaded gown with an illusion low back designed by Stephen Yearick. Enjoy the photos compliments of John & […]

Don’t underestimate the power of an amazing ceremony backdrop. It will be the focal point of all your guests for the ceremony, plus it will be the background in your many altar photos. Take inspiration from the variety we have here, comprising of fabrics, florals and other materials — all amazing, many do-it-yourself friendly even. Too, the settings run the gamut from rural small church to venues with extraordinary views. Enjoy!

Lovella Loves…

When a pair of shoes are photographed beautifully. We posted this image of Jimmy Choo shoes to Facebook. 461 Shares later, we’re still in awe of the response it elicited. Who knows if it’s the crafty way in which Duke Photography captured Lovella Bride Lily’s shoes, or if it’s the sheer fabulousness of the bedazzled earth tone Choos (or a combination of both). No matter why the love, there’s no doubt that this photo stirs up that adoration of shoes in each of us.

Lily, in a Romantic Liancarlo Dress, Marries Kevin

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 […]
