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 […]

Edgardo Bonilla Fashion Shoot at The London

An entire team of us gathered at The London recently to create this shoot. With Duke Khodaverdian behind the camera, we created a contrast of lovely gowns and glamorous accessories against a background of the trendy and cool Hollywood hotel. Models Mia and Desta had fun in Edgardo Bonilla gowns and headpieces. You’ll spy a special twigs & honey piece in here, too, along with Maria Elena Headpieces accessories. Contact us if you see something you love! Everything in this shoot is available at Lovella Bridal. Call (818) 246-4637 or email info@lovellabridal.com.

NYC Bridal Market 2012: Malis-Henderson Private Viewing

Our bridal market series continues with sparkling accessories by Malis-Henderson, a designer we now carry. Their designs are elegant, timeless, and yet still very fabulous. As their website states, the atelier, established in 1941, uses “the finest elements from Swarovski crystals, fresh water pearls, Japanese pearls, [and] other elements.” We think the bride who wants a little (or a lot of?) fabulous in her day will love this collection. Enjoy!

NYC Bridal Market 2012: Maria Elena Headpieces Private Viewing

Our coverage of bridal market continues! Too many fabulous pieces were unveiled during the viewing of this Maria Elena Headpieces collection. For instance, you’ll notice a boutonniere, among other pieces, made of a Swarovski crystal fabric. This is so different and unique, as Maria Elena is the only bridal accessory designer that is using this material. Lovella Wedding Fashion Specialist Nayri was immediately smitten by a sparkling jewel cap, one of several by Maria Elena. “The second I walked in, I eyed it; it went straight on my head the entire hour we were buying!” The fact that world-renowned designer Ines Di Santo joined in on the fun was an added treat, and you’ll notice that some of us ladies couldn’t help but play dress up! Our visit to the showroom was a reminder that “girls just want to have fun.” Enjoy the collection.

Flower Girls & Their Floral Crowns

We have a post packed with all kinds of cuteness for you today! There is something incredibly sweet about a flower girl topped with a floral crown. Not to mention, what girl (or woman, for that matter) doesn’t feel special or pretty when donning an uber pretty dress AND luscious headpiece? This post should put a smile on your face.
