Lovella Bridal Runway Fashion Show at I Do! An Event for the Stylish Bride

Another year, another fabulous time at I Do! An Event for the Stylish Bride last month. A special shoutout goes to Butterfly Floral for an amazing job with the florals for our booth. (We make a good team.) We hosted the exclusive runway show, once again, and had a blast. The models glided (and once or twice danced…) down the runway in gowns by Edgardo Bonilla, Ines Di Santo and Rivini from our salon. And the sweet yet sexy garters you see peeking out from underneath? They’re by Pearls and Lace Designs and oh-so lovely. If you missed the event, this wasn’t your last chance to experience Lovella fashion. Our next engagement is Party Bravo’s EXPO event on February 23, where we will host a fashion presentation. Thank you to Armen Asadorian for these photos, and to the organizers of I Do! for an amazingly fun event; full credits are […]

Lovella Gowns Featured in Engagement Shoot

We were thrilled to offer two gowns to this engagement shoot of real-life California couple Ali and Olivia, who will soon be walking down the aisle. The mix of colors like peach and salmon, along with butterflies, made this shoot ultra lovely. Feminine and sweet wedding dresses — the trumpet gown with textured skirt by Ines Di Santo, the full-lace dress by Liancarlo — were really the perfect choice for this subtly glamorous shoot in the outdoors of Pasadena, California. We encourage you to see all the photos, and the complete list of vendors, over at The Frosted Petticoat. A spot-on excerpt from their post: “Although there is still a long and bumpy road ahead on the journey to equality, we can be assured that a saying like ‘Love conquers all’ is a cliche for a reason… because it’s the truth.” Enjoy these photos by Michelle Lacson.

Teny, in Flattering Ines Di Santo Dress, Marries Arlen

Lovella bride Teny, we’re convinced, was made to wear this Ines Di Santo dress from our salon! It featured hand made ruched taffeta flowers with accents of embellishment at the bust, on the lower thigh, and at the skirt’s bottom. Her look was made complete with nude Prada shoes, a fingertip butterfly veil with satin edging from our salon, and minimal jewelry.  Teny and Arlen married in Pasadena; there are so many smiles in the wedding photos from Rene Zadori Photography below. As for the bridal party, the bridesmaids wore long, dark blue dresses (with the maid of honor in her own style and color), and the groomsmen all looked dapper in black suits with gold vests and ties. Their reception space at Geragos Hall was spotted in chic ivory centerpieces made of hydrangeas and roses. A towering six-tier Rafi’s Pastry cake was another highlight; it featured blue satin met […]
