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.

Spotted: Bride Marries Cowboy in Lazaro Gown

Elegance collides with rustic appeal in this cool-weather Missouri wedding, captured beautifully by Love is a Big Deal (and spotted here). We’re smitten with two things. One, the bride’s glamorous Lazaro gown, topped off with a stylish shrug. Two, the fact that the groom is a bull rider, adding a cowboy.Western element to the mix. If you fell in love with the wedding dress like we did, you’re in luck; Lovella carries this exact style. For more details, call (818) 248-0026 or inquire within.

Lovely Lavender

We love the way that brides are incorporating lavender into their weddings. Lavender, part of the mint family, is native to the Mediterranean region. It has been used for over 2,500 years, and is particularly known for its calming properties. From rustic to chic, lavender can satisfy any event’s theme. This lovely flowering plant will always lend a certain prettiness to an occasion, which is surely why it has become a popular choice among brides.     Photo Credits: 1 KT Merry / Florals by Blooms by Martha Andrews (via) / 2 Elizabeth Messina 3 Via Cupcakes and Cashmere 4 KT Merry / Florals by Blooms by Martha Andrews (via) 5 (Via). 6 (Via) 7 Vanilla Lavender fragrance (via) 8 Via Epicurean Mom 9, 10, 11 KT Merry / Florals by Blooms by Martha Andrews (via). 12 Via Arty McGoo 13 & 14 KT Merry / Florals by Blooms by […]

Featured: Ines Di Santo Dress from Lovella Bridal in Venice Bridal Shoot

We think you may just fall in love with this very-California bridal shoot featured recently on California Wedding Day. Shot on location in urban-cool Venice, “The property was a crazy cool mix of ultra-modern architecture with super rustic elements of brick, steel, rust and hardwood,” photographer Brian Leahy wrote of the shoot on his blog. We were thrilled to be a part of this fabulous team effort. The Ines Di Santo stunner from our salon fit the setting wonderfully. Beautiful styling and flawless photography helped to elevate this shoot to awe-inspiring levels. Big credit goes to all the fabulous vendors, especially Andrea Freeman who dreamed up the shoot.
