Susan, in “absolutely perfect” Kenneth Pool Ball Gown, Marries Jade

Susan and Jade’s San Diego wedding was nothing short of absolutely lovely. The magnificent Caroline Tran captured all the details — stationery and paper goods in shades of pink and seafoam, the candle-lined ceremony aisle and props like umbrellas and giant pink balloons props. Oh, and the sweets at the reception: too-pretty-to-eat confections like French macarons, intricate cakes, and cake pops complete with edible cameo embellishments. All pretty pastel perfection. Lovella Bride Susan wore a Kenneth Pool ball gown fit for a princess. Wrote the bride of her dress: “Thank you so much for your patience, kindness, and expertise in helping me find the absolutely perfect wedding dress. The dress was everything I ever dreamed of and was definitely a major highlight of our special day.” The gown featured a sweetheart neckline and embellished belt at the bodice, and an artfully gathered skirt.

Color Inspiration: Navy Blue & Yellow

Navy and yellow as a color combination is chic, modern and seasonless. Put plainly, these colors combined are a breath of fresh air.

Conversely, injecting deep blue into a prominently-yellow theme can offer contrast and classic appeal. To make this palette work any time of year, simply make your prominent color choice depending on the season: lemon for spring and summer, navy for fall and winter. Spend some time to soak up the effect of these partnered colors; you may fall under its spell as we did. Enjoy!

Black, White & Chic All Over

What is it that makes black and white combined so incredibly enticing? To begin, the combo is chic, elegant and clean; and no, that doesn’t mean simple or boring. The real beauty is brought out in playing with textures, patterns and shapes. Too, add the slightest touch of gold, red or any color and it’s a whole new ballgame. Here’s a little taste of the black and white creations we love, such as a luscious white gown with black sash (timeless), a black and white cake with exquisite details (genius) and striped linens devoid of color (bold, yet classic when slightly subdued by flowers).
