Amanda, in Intricate Ines Di Santo Gown, Marries Bryan

Your heart may overflow with love as you view photos from Amanda and Bryan’s Southern California spring wedding. Lovella Bride Amanda wore an ultra lovely Ines Di Santo gown from our salon. Admire the uber pretty details of the dress: illusion straps, layered fabric texture and pattern at the bodice, and light-as-air tulle skirt that flowed out to a train. Her birdcage veil, which created such delicious volume in the most unexpected fashion, was created in-house. Amanda kept her jewelry to a minimum, but that’s not to say that her Maria Elena earrings, also from Lovella, didn’t make a sparkling statement. Amanda’s look was fresh, feminine, and utterly lovely — just like the bride. We’ll let the bride’s words speak for how she felt: “From meeting Ines on the day I found my dress, to your excellent customer service, finding and falling in love with my dress was one of […]

Glitzy New Year’s Eve Inspiration

Last year we elected to Celebrate New Year’s in Gold, Silver & Black. This year is much of the same… but spiked with even more dazzle! And why must New Year’s be the only time to celebrate big? We should all take time here and there to throw a party and celebrate. Here’s to a glitzy good time this New Year’s Eve. Stay safe. We’ll see you in 2014!

Lovella Bridal Grand (Re)Opening, Pt. 2: The Fashion

Welcome to part two of three of our grand opening series. We unveiled our new and improved Lovella Bridal salon on Wednesday, November 20, 2013. (Click here for part one, photos of our new luxury space.) What would a bridal salon celebration be without fashion? Throughout the night, some of our favorite models showcased the latest couture designs. Ines Di Santo is especially close to our hearts, as a large part of our new salon is dedicated exclusively to her designs. We also addressed attendees and visiting designers in a special presentation. For example, we presented designer Jorge Manuel with an enlarged print of his sketch for the design of our salon. Good friend Edgardo Bonilla, who designed our front window displays, also joined us on stage, along with Maria Elena Fuentes of Maria Elena Headpieces and couture designer Ines Di Santo. It was special to have our good friends and […]

Lovella Bride Erica Marries Brett in Sparkling Head-to-Toe Look

We’re excited to share these photos from Erica and Brett’s wedding because there’s amazing energy in nearly every shot. Lovella bride Erica married Brett at the Intercontinental hotel in LA. Outside was the big city, but there were so many intimate moments caught on camera that it seemed the only thing that mattered to the couple were one another and their guests. Erica’s look was all about the sparkle, down to her bouquet handle. She shined in a Kenneth Pool gown from our salon, a classic-shaped gown with sweetheart bodice, train and embellished skirt and belt. Her look was completed with accessories including a headband (also from our salon), statement-making Jimmy Choo shoes, and a fingertip veil. Enjoy the photos from this wedding, courtesy of ES Photography. Congratulations to Ercia and Brett!     Credits: Photography: ES Photography / Venue: Intercontinental – Los Angeles Century City / Wedding Dress: Kenneth Pool, from […]
