Tania, in Kenneth Pool Ball Gown, Marries Rand

Nothing makes us happier than a happy bride. In this case, an elated bride! “Thank you so much for your wonderful five star service throughout this entire process! I truly love love love your store,” Lovella Bride Tania shared. “Thank you for helping me to find the perfect wedding dress. How fabulous the dress made me look on my big day! I would have never found it if it weren’t for you guys. The bride was was indeed resplendent on her wedding day in a Kenneth Pool ball gown from Lovella Bridal. A sweetheart cut-bodice was met with a generous grouping of embellishments at the waist, making way for a full, voluminous skirt. Surely, a gown fit for a princess.

Selina, in a Fairy Tale Kenneth Pool Ball Gown, Marries Shant

We fought every urge not to share every.single.photo of this wedding! Selina and Shant married in style at the ultra trendy Taglyan Complex in downtown Los Angeles. Events at the Taglyan are never short of amazing; every part of this couple’s wedding was exuberant. Speaking of exuberant, let’s begin with the gown. The Lovella Bride wore a dreamy Kenneth Pool ball gown so befitting of a princess that we’re sure it’s the same style many a girl dreams of wearing on her big day. The dress featured an embellished bodice with a romantic yet sexy sweetheart neckline, a slimming waist making way for a heavenly tulle-layered skirt. Every inch of Selina’s dress was pure bridal perfection! She complemented the look with an undo met with a veil at the back, necklace, and subdued by luscious bouquet. On to the event. The ceremony venue was decked out in florals in soft […]

Christine, in Sweet & Romantic Ines Di Santo Dress, Marries Vahe

There’s nothing like a summertime wedding in California. Christine and Vahe married in an awe-inspiring cathedral last July, then celebrated in downtown LA at the stylish Vibiana. Lovella bride Christine wore a lovely Ines Di Santo gown from our salon. What amazes us is how comfortable Christine looked in her dress, like a second skin. Obviously, that style and designer were the perfect choice for this bride. To accompany her look, a floor-length veil. Sky-high shoes kept in the theme of smashing fashion, with earrings to top off the bridal look. (Love Christine’s look? Her gown is available at our Ines Di Santo trunk show this weekend, February 7-9, 2014; call (818) 246-4637 for an appointment to select your dream gown and have the opportunity to meet the designer!) A wonderful roster of vendors made the couple’s celebration an event to behold. At the reception, a couture cake by Rafi’s […]

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 […]

I Do! An Event for the Stylist Bride, Pt. 2

I Do! An Event for the Stylist Bride was a great success. There were florals, cakes, calligraphy, stationery, linens and general inspiration aplenty at the event, which were met with smiles, dreamy eyes and glowing praise. Being exhibitors ourselves, we’ve included photos and inspiration from our own booth to start. A special shout-out goes to Butterfly Floral and Event Design for creating our booth’s AMAZING centerpiece; it was so lovely! Also during the event, we sent our models down the runway for an exclusive fashion show; see photos here. Throughout the event our models in Ines Di Santo gowns were seen traipsing about the premises; girls do love to play dress-up! Also view some of our favorite, inspiring selections from the event. As much as we’d love it to be, this is not a definitive collection; there were just too many gorgeous designs for it to be. However, feel free […]
