Lovely Lavender, Pt. 2

We love lavender. In this follow-up post to our first on this mint family member, we share updated inspiration. Whether on or in bouquets, table settings and cakes, lavender makes everything better. And due to its pretty nature, it makes a particularly welcome costar in photographs. Our favorites? Sprigs of lavender tucked oh-so neatly into a table setting and escort  cards set atop a bed of lavender. Enjoy the lovely inspiration!     Photo Credits: 1 Stefanie Kapra w/ stationery by Jessica Haley (via) 2 Pictilio w/ lavender from Cuyama Valley Lavender Co.

Liz, in a Lovely Trumpet Dress, Weds Matt in Santa Barbara

Liz and Matt married at a private estate in beautiful Santa Barbara. This Lovella bride wore a body-hugging gown with customizations by our salon. The dress began with a knotted bust at the top, narrowed flatteringly through the midsection, and fanned out beautifully at the bottom – a gorgeous trumpet shape. Liz is proof that a bride can go natural – hair down, soft makeup, dainty jewelry – and still look like a million bucks. A beautiful fingertip veil that silhouetted in those sunset shots, and simple yet chic shoes completed this bride’s look. And of course, Matt was ever-so dapper in his gray suit. These photos of the couple snapped by Tyler Branch are amazing; he is a photographer who knows how to manipulate the sun to create gorgeous images. We hope you enjoy!     Credits: Photography: Tyler Branch Photo / Reception Location: Private residence in Santa Barbara […]
