We had the pleasure of hosting Liancarlo designer Carlos Ramirez at Lovella Bridal this past weekend during a trunk show. Needless to say, we’ve had Liancarlo on our minds lately! The designer’s latest collection is one of fantasy but practicality. Features like artfully placed tulle, modern lace, his trademark appliqués, and sweetheart bodices grace gowns with intricate embroidery that adds extraordinary dimension to each. Ethereal and romantic are key adjectives of this collection. The Knot summed it up quite well, stating the line “is proof that classic doesn’t have to mean boring.” If you love what you see, contact us: 818-246-4637. In the meantime, enjoy browsing the expertly-crafted pieces that make up Ramirez’s exquisite Spring 2015 Collection.
Last year we attended both semi-annual bridal markets. Last month, however, we took a pass — but admired from afar. Well, Rita Vinieris has done it again. Rivini’s Spring/Summer 2015 Collection has what’s to be expected of the label: fantasy, romance and elegance. Described The Knot of the collection: “[The] line of wedding dresses plays with negative space to evoke a timeless, yet modern style. Rita Vinieris’ classic feminine silhouettes were given an update with modern prints, leather accents and subtle, revealing lace panels.” In other words, there’s a lot of dreaminess here. Floating, flowing and glistening fabrics met with regal designs, details and textures. Plunging necklines, structural bodices and touches of leather sprinkle this collection. It’s fabulous. Below, enjoy the latest gowns as plucked from The Knot and captured by Kurt Wilberding. You’ll also see select social media images intermixed; all Instagram photos are via Rita Vinieris’ official account […]
There is no better way to ring in a trunk show weekend than with the introduction of the designer of the hour’s collection! We quietly and recently introduced an amazing selection of Spring 2014 Couture gowns by the ultra talented Matthew Christopher to our website. Now is a befitting time to showcase the new arrivals, with styles that will be available at our Matthew Christopher Trunk Show this weekend. Mr. Christopher creates drama in every detail, from organic beading to show-stopping silhouettes. He describes his collection as being “modern elegance with a very classic feminine twist.” The man you see in these photos will be here this weekend, March 28-30, to work with sophisticated brides to select their perfect wedding gowns! Make your appointment today: 818-246-4637. In the meantime, enjoy this inspiration complete with dreamy dresses, balloons, martinis, a game of Chess, and maybe even a tune.
Another beautiful California day, another fabulous shoot! We joined forces with Nicoletta Daskalakis and her team once again, this time to create beach magic. But we didn’t do it alone; full vendor credits are below. Model Sarabeth Panela simply shined in a Kenneth Pool drop-waist gown and sparkling Maria Elena hair comb, both from our salon. She was a vision! Nicoletta worked her magic to create an ultra romantic look with soft makeup and carefree hair. Enjoy the photos, and head over to Nicoletta’s blog for even more.

Images from Ashley and Nolan’s treehouse wedding look as if they were plucked straight out of a magazine. (In fact, we loved James Christianson’s photos so much that we included a few images from the couple’s engagement session below). For her wedding to Nolan, Lovella bride Ashley wore an Edgardo Bonilla gown from our salon in an off-the-shoulder, romantic ruffled design with sash and lace detail. Perfection! Her look was completed with Twigs & Honey accessories and a colorful bouquet. The setting for this couple’s Southern California wedding was wilderness: woods, a lake, paths and a treehouse. It reminded us of summer camp, in the very best way. There’s a reason (or ten) that One Hitched Lane chose to feature their wedding. Congratulations to Ashley and Nolan!
