Spotted: Ines Di Santo Gown in “Autumn Romance” Shoot

With the warm temperatures here in Southern California, it’s hard to believe that autumn is right around the corner. But it is. This lovely shoot out of Ontario, Canada is a reminder that fall begins in just days—and it’s something to be excited about: rich colors and deep metallics, incredible textures, and comfort. Merlot, a deep, rich red, is no doubt the star of this rustic-meets-glamour shoot. Plus, Rachel A. Clingen, one of our favorites, had a heavy hand in its creation. Not only are the florals plentiful and exquisite, and the confections too pretty and ornate to eat, but the Ines Di Santo gown and bolero in this shoot has our hearts. This post has purposeful timing; our Ines Di Santo Trunk Show kicks off today, September 19. We carry this exact design at Lovella, and the Spring 2015 Collection will also be in our salon this weekend. There’s […]

Spotted: Jenny McCarthy Marries Donnie Wahlberg in Ines Di Santo Gown

On Sunday, August 31, 2014, model and actress Jenny McCarthy wed singer and actor Donnie Wahlberg just outside of Chicago. Us Weekly promptly got the exclusive scoop and photos. Lucky us! The bride amazed in a fabulous Ines Di Santo gown that so beautifully highlighted her famous curves. Her look was complete with a hairstyle reminiscent of Old Hollywood. In fact, McCarthy’s glamorous looked seemed to mimic that of the couple’s wedding: an intimate occasion punctuated by classic red roses and a grand six-tier cake. We love this statement-making gown and offer other styles by Di Santo in our salon; contact us. Enjoy these images, and be sure to click over to Us Weekly to see the couple’s full album.

Floral Love: Red Roses

Valentine’s Day has passed, but love is still in the air. Truth is, we’ve fallen for red roses in recent months. A classic, true symbol of romantic love, red roses will never go out of style, nor will they cease to lose their “classic” status. One bit of advice when integrating red roses into your wedding, though: be wary of the extras. If you desire chic, pair red roses with an all-white or ivory palette, with maybe metallic accents; that combination is sure to amaze. When done right, the red rose is one of the chicest, most classic (if not overlooked) options in the book. Enjoy the inspiration!
