Bridal Fashion Week Fall 2013: Edgardo Bonilla Private Viewing, Part 1

Bridal fashion week is not only great for viewing the collections up-close and personally, but it’s always nice to see and speak with the designers face-to-face. That said, it’s always lovely to visit with our good friend Edgardo Bonilla. Our documentation of our New York City visit for bridal market continues today with a look at Mr. Bonilla’s latest fabulous collection. Inspiration from his latest designs came from his grandmother, who recently passed away. His grandmother Rose loved gardening, so this collection was infused with a Rose theme. (See directly below for more.) “Each dress is so detailed, it takes moments of observation to take it all in,” reflected Lovella Wedding Fashion Expert and Stylist Nayri on the collection. “Edgardo has intricate details at every angle of this collection. He’s played around with different laces, combining/blending them into one, and has created wonderful works of art.” Keep your eyes open, […]

Brittney, in Sparkling Ines Di Santo, Marries David Lakeside

Every so often we come across photos from a bride’s wedding that are so wonderful, each and every one, that we have a difficult time whittling down our favorites into one blog post — this is one of those times. Indulge in these photos by Sloan Photographers, who so excellently captured Lovella bride Brittney in her custom Ines Di Santo gown from our salon. Her corseted tea length dress sparkled from every direction. We love that the rest of her look was so chic, so downplayed, so as to really draw attention to that special gown. The couple married at a family home on the lake in Pennsylvania; what beauty. David and Brittney are both Walt Disney Animation Studios artists, a fact which was reflected in the bride’s bouquet and wedding stationery, down to the personalized favors. This wedding was so special, it was featured on Green Wedding Shoes. Enjoy, […]

Welcome to Summer

It’s summer, that blissful time of year that equals beach excursions and balmy nights, bountiful florals, fresh fruit and colorful cocktails. In all that, punchy hues of pinks, reds and oranges met with vibrant blues, purples and the like. Things are lighter and airy in summer; spirits are high and happy. This season is fresh and refreshing. Enjoy the inspiration; welcome to a new season!

Color Inspiration: Pink

From Vogue magazine, May 2013: “Pink: It’s the color (and the mood) of the moment – the subtle lingerie-pink of the 1930s; cameo pink; carnation.” May we add cotton candy and bubble gum pink to that list? No other color is as girly, flirty or fun as pink. Its inviting and non-intimidating variation of swoon-worthy hues make pink a candidate for most lovable color. And fortunately, Lovella has a great offering of pink options in the form of wedding, bridesmaid and flower girl dresses. Enjoy the pink inspiration!     Photo Credits: 1 The Nichols 2 Geoff Johnson 3 David Tutera Shoe Collection “Feather” shoe in Pink Satin 4 Paper Fashion illustration 5 Wtoo bridesmaid dress in Frosting, available at Lovella Bridal 6 (Via). 7 Rebecca Arthurs / Florals by Martin Roberts Design (via) 8 Virgil Bunao / Amsale bridesmaid dresses, available at Lovella Bridal (via) 9 Mike Olbinski 10 […]

Lovella Bride Gayaneh Marries in Dreamy Lace Ines Di Santo Gown

It requires a very feminine, romantic bride to don an all-lace look on her big day; Gayaneh did so flawlessly. For her wedding to Harut, Lovella bride Gayaneh wore an Ines Di Santo dress so off-the-charts sensational that only the photos can accurately depict the arresting beauty of the gown and our bride in it. The dress’ body, complete with a lace overlay, featured a bodice with an off-the-shoulder cap sleeve design and scoop at the back and a skirt that trailed off fluidly into a train. Jewelry-wise, Gayaneh wore a dazzling headpiece, earrings and bracelet. She finished her look with a cathedral veil, also by Di Santo, that no doubt added punctuation to her look (and the couple’s photos alike). Photographer Kris Kan excellently captured the essence of the bride and groom on their wedding day. The couple married in downtown Los Angeles in a space awash in red […]
