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!

Mara, in an Exquisitely Textured Wtoo Dress, Marries Doug in Malibu

Doug and Mara married in Malibu, California last summer. Their day was infused with nature, sunshine, sliders and beer, wildflowers, games, and lots of joy. It was a delightfully parred-down occasion, with oodles of personal touches with a playful vibe. Lovella Bride Mara, who is an incredible athlete (along with her husband), wore an exquisitely textured Wtoo dress from Lovella that showed off her fit, feminine physique. To match the relaxed feel of the day, her only jewelry was drop earrings; she wore her hair back with a flower. Her colorful bouquet was a nod to the California landscape we love: vibrant, warm and textured. The couple’s wedding was so sweet that it was featured on both Sweet Violet Bride and Storyboard Wedding blogs. Enjoy these photos from their big day! And you love Mara’s gown, contact us and let us help you find your perfect gown! Credits: Photography: Bright […]

Melissa Joan Hart Wears Ines Di Santo on TV Show Melissa & Joey

It’s the moment everyone has been waiting for: Mel (Melissa Joan Hart) and Joe (Joey Lawrence) took to the aisle on the ABC Family original television series Melissa & Joey. For the show, part one of two in the show’s season finale, teen television darling Melissa Joan Hart donned an Ines Di Santo dress from Lovella Bridal. We aren’t the only ones raving about how fabulous Mel looked! Disney Style shared: “The dress by Ines Di Santo from Lovella Bridal is pretty much what we would imagine our own dream gown to be … Yes, we’re jealous. From the lace appliqués, to the ruched bodice, the details of the dress are just beautiful.” See her dress in motion on Hollywood Life, and read more of how the episode came to be via OK! Magazine. Much of how a wedding dress looks is based on how a woman wears it, and […]

Featured: Lovella Bridal in Park Plaza Shoot

Rich hues meet gilded perfection in this regal shoot captured at the legendary Park Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles. We joined a long list of talented vendors, notably photographers The Yodsukars and the David Tutera team, in collaborating on creating this elegant scene. The ball gown by Kenneth Pool and the shimmering sheath dress by Stephen Yearick are from Lovella Bridal. We also loaned picture-perfect Maria Elena Headpieces jewelry to the cause. These photos and all the pretty extras are proof that it’s all in the details. Saturated florals and gold-trim flatware and stemware added to the theme. The couture cakes were extraordinarily easy on the eyes, and the iconic hotel as the shoot’s backdrop was no doubt the icing on the cake. In fact, this stylized shoot was so fabulous that it was featured on Grace Ormonde’s website recently. What an honor! Enjoy the photos.   Credits: Photography: The Yodsukars | […]
