Lovella Bridal Grand (Re)Opening, Pt. 3: The Party

We shared photos of our new salon, and then the fashion, and now it’s time to take those and some fun and roll it into one: the celebration! Welcome to the third and final installment of our series documenting the grand reopening of Lovella Bridal on Wednesday, November 20, 2013.
