Spotted: Reality Star Jen Bunney Weds in Matthew Christopher Gown

Source: maeghanoverley On Saturday, August 9, 2014, reality star Jennifer Bunney wed Taylor Dunphy in Palos Verdes, California. Bunney starred in hit shows Laguna Beach and The Hills. Unofficial wedding photos have surfaced thanks to the use of a wedding hashtag, and we have a myriad to share! Us Weekly got the exclusive scoop, reporting the bride’s “strapless wedding gown had a sweetheart neckline with beaded embellishments” by the one-and-only Matthew Christopher. Christopher, a designer whose gowns we carry, has been a popular choice by celebrities as of late. Just last month singer and actress Kristin Chenoweth performed at London’s Royal Albert Hall wearing a strapless gown by the designer. We love this classic, romantic gown and offer the same style in our salon. Mrs. Dunphy looked absolutely fabulous in it, and you can too! In fact, we’re hosting a Matthew Christopher Trunk Show August 22-24, 2014; contact us to […]

Trend: Hashtag Weddings

Social media has transformed the way we experience, share and remember life’s events. We at Lovella are big fans of using hashtags to corral photos that would more than likely go unnoticed. Hashtags allow us to see what happens from another person’s perspective at our salon, and with surprisingly minimal effort on our behalf. The experience is the same for weddings.  Why create a custom hashtag for your wedding? -Experience the event from your guests’ perspectives. Bonus: Refer to their captions for sentiments and details that may otherwise go unshared. -Corral wedding photos from your big day for free. -Social media photos are a nice, more casual supplement to professional wedding photographs. –Promotion is easy. Add your custom hashtag to wedding stationery materials, a large chalkboard or the like at the ceremony, in a frame near the guestbook, or even on each table with the centerpieces. Get creative! Where to […]

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 […]

Runway Show: Rivini Spring 2015 Collection

Last year we attended both semi-annual bridal markets. Last month, however, we took a pass — but admired from afar. Well, Rita Vinieris has done it again. Rivini’s Spring/Summer 2015 Collection has what’s to be expected of the label: fantasy, romance and elegance. Described The Knot of the collection: “[The] line of wedding dresses plays with negative space to evoke a timeless, yet modern style. Rita Vinieris’ classic feminine silhouettes were given an update with modern prints, leather accents and subtle, revealing lace panels.” In other words, there’s a lot of dreaminess here. Floating, flowing and glistening fabrics met with regal designs, details and textures. Plunging necklines, structural bodices and touches of leather sprinkle this collection. It’s fabulous. Below, enjoy the latest gowns as plucked from The Knot and captured by Kurt Wilberding. You’ll also see select social media images intermixed; all Instagram photos are via Rita Vinieris’ official account […]

Runway Show: Kenneth Pool Spring 2015 Collection

As noted in our last post, in 2013 we attended both semi-annual bridal fashion weeks in New York City. This time around, however, we took a pass — but admired from afar. We shared photos from Ines Di Santo’s Spring/Summer 2015 Collection, and this time we again consulted The Knot, with photos by Kurt Wilberding, to share with you the Kenneth Pool Spring 2015 Collection. Head designer Amsale Aberra’s streamlined 10-piece collection is one of great illusions, with each gown presenting an alluring front with a surprise in the back. WWD said of the collection: “Aberra targeted the sexy bride… The silhouettes were seductive, many in mermaid shapes and with daring low backs.” Described The Knot: “Stepping away from the bold, dramatic aesthetic of previous seasons, instead balancing form-fitting shapes and daring low backs with romantic touches.” We’ve also squeezed in a few Instagram-captured runway images; credits are below each […]
