Bridal Market: Maria Elena Headpieces Private Viewing

Our exclusive Bridal Market coverage continues with Maria Elena Headpieces. Its lead designer and our good friend, Maria Elena, operates out of Miami. (If you missed our photos from the Lazaro runway show and Mira Zwillinger private viewing, click here.) Every year we wait in anticipation to see what Maria Elena will create. This year she infused mother of pearl, crystals, and semiprecious stones, the newest element, to the pieces. These hued stones are so special because they introduce new hues of color and texture we have never seen before into the collection. Also, one of the standout pieces, one that we absolutely loved, was the new clutch they created with purple semiprecious stones; so chic! Revel in the glamour of these heirloom works of art. And instead of dreaming of one day owning a piece so beautiful, stay tuned for information on our upcoming Maria Elena Headpieces trunk show, […]

Thank You

Thank you to all who made our Grand Opening last Wednesday an absolute joy and success! We couldn’t be happier with our new salon, and we’re humbled by all the support and well wishes we have received. We were delighted by all the brides, neighbors and friends who showed up to celebrate with us. Truly, without our brides and friends both in the industry and out, we would not be Lovella Bridal. Special guests traveled from thousands of miles away to attend the event. Ines Di Santo traveled from Toronto for both the event and our trunk show. In from Miami, Maria Elena  and Gisele Del Busto of Maria Elena Headpieces celebrated with us. Also Jorge Manuel, who designed our salon, and Edgardo Bonilla, who designed our front windows. James Brown of Rivini and Amber Strickland of Sareh Nouri came in from New York. Thank you to the vendors, many […]

Bridal Fashion Week Fall 2013: Maria Elena Headpieces Private Viewing

It’s that time of year again: bridal fashion week, take two! Last April, Lovella packed up for a weekend in New York City to scout the latest collections for the latest and greatest in bridal dresses and accessories. This time around, it was much of the same: Quick traveling from appointment to runway show and vice versa, delight over the newest offerings and innovation in design, and absolute giddiness over selecting the cream of the crop to offer Southern California brides. In viewing the latest from Maria Elena Headpieces, we had free reign to “ooh” and “ahh” in private over headbands, clutches, headpieces and assorted jewelry. Brighter pieces resulted from opal and texture and depth of tulle, two items heavily incorporated in this season’s collection. We can’t wait to pair these new accessories with lace and tulle gowns from our salon! We also saw rose and yellow gold in this […]

Twenty years of rolling out one exquisite piece after the next is definitely cause for celebration! Lovella Bridal Wedding Fashion Specialists Nayri and Kristina (above) flew from LA to Miami for a lavish event celebrating Maria Elena’s twenty years in the business. The bash was held at Maria Elena’s daughter’s home in the Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami. It was the perfect evening with perfect weather. Attendees included world-famous bridal designer Ines Di Santo, and her daughter Veronica Di Santo, Monte Durham of Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta, Bridal Expo Chicago’s Jim Verraros and Bill Brennan, and other leaders in the industry. In the photos below you’ll also see Gisele Del Busto, Maria Elena’s all-knowing collection accessory stylist/designer representative who comes to all our trunk shows and styles our brides. “She’s taught me so much about accessories and is so talented at what she does! For my wedding I will […]
