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 […]
On Saturday, July 12, 2014, singer and actress Kristin Chenoweth performed at London’s Royal Albert Hall wearing a strapless beauty of a white gown by none other than a Lovella favorite Matthew Christopher. Fans took to social media shortly thereafter to express their love of her dress (and haircut) that fit her so impeccably. Matthew Christopher’s official site says of the gown: “Every inch of this resplendent satin trumpet gown is embellished with spectacular embroidered Chantilly lace. From the deep sweetheart neckline to the chapel length train…” We love this dreamy gown and are happy to offer this same style at Lovella Bridal. If you love what the songstress is wearing, what are you waiting for? Contact us! In the meantime, enjoy the images.

Get us to Austin, Texas immediately. Thanks to these beautiful photos by Christina Carroll Photography (originally spotted on Junebug Weddings where full credits are), we are thinking of charming Western-style weddings with touches of glamour. The bride Chelsea wore a lovely Matthew Christopher gown and carried a jewel tone bouquet crafted by Fleurish Austin. The reception was utterly down-home, so sweet, with live music, BBQ and lights strung overhead. We’re posting this during our Matthew Christopher Trunk Show weekend. If you love this bride’s gown (like we do, we carry it in our salon and we’re obsessed), contact us. In the meantime, enjoy this Austin-infused wedding.
On the eve of our Matthew Christopher Trunk Show weekend, we feel it only appropriate to share an exclusive treat with you all: an interview with the bridal gown designer himself, Matthew Christopher (Sobaski)! Lovella recently acquired a number of styles from Christopher’s Spring 2014 Collection, which is nothing short of marvelous. We are thrilled to offer these sophisticated styles to the Lovella Bride. Continue on to read how growing up in the Midwest influenced Christopher’s career, why he appears in his own advertisements, and of course, what inspired his latest collection. Enjoy! LB: Only a handful of fashion designers hail from the Midwest. How has your upbringing influenced your art? MATTHEW CHRISTOPHER: My upbringing has taught me to have a hard work ethic and it gave me an imagination to become something that people never thought you could become because I grew up in the middle of a cornfield. I always had an eye for gowns and gown […]
