2013 Lovella Bridal Highlights, Pt. 2: The Events

2013, what a year. The biggest personal highlight of 2013 for us was the opening of our newly renovated salon. We took on the task of hosting our very own POP, The Bridal Event in early 2013; it was a success. We also sent models down the runway in designs from our salon for I Do! An Event for the Stylish Bride, Premier Bridal Event and Urban Unveiled LA. Designs from the following designers’ collections were added to Lovella’s selection of bridal gowns: Martina Liana, Matthew Christopher and Sareh Nouri. Lovella Bridal was featured on Style Me Pretty, Ruffled and Green Wedding Shoes, and in California Wedding Day, Ceremony and Plush. Also, our own Nayri was tapped to share advice with California Wedding Day readers. We continued collaborations with fellow vendors on countless fashion and inspiration shoots that had our gowns at chic spots like Viceroy Santa Monica, Redondo Beach […]

Lovella Bridal Grand (Re)Opening, Pt. 3: The Party

We shared photos of our new salon, and then the fashion, and now it’s time to take those and some fun and roll it into one: the celebration! Welcome to the third and final installment of our series documenting the grand reopening of Lovella Bridal on Wednesday, November 20, 2013. Designers Ines Di Santo, Jorge Manuel, Edgardo Bonilla and Maria Elena Fuentes all flew in from across the country for the event. The list of vendors (and friends) who went above and beyond the call of duty to make this night a memorable one for all involved is at the bottom of this post. We’ll let these photos by Duke Photography do the rest of the talking. (And this is only a sampling; view more on our Facebook page.) Enjoy!   Vendors: Photography: Duke Photography / Video: Walter Pawluk / Designers: Ines Di Santo, Gisele Del Busto and Maria Elena Fuentes of […]

Thank You

Thank you to all who made our Grand Opening last Wednesday an absolute joy and success! We couldn’t be happier with our new salon, and we’re humbled by all the support and well wishes we have received. We were delighted by all the brides, neighbors and friends who showed up to celebrate with us. Truly, without our brides and friends both in the industry and out, we would not be Lovella Bridal. Special guests traveled from thousands of miles away to attend the event. Ines Di Santo traveled from Toronto for both the event and our trunk show. In from Miami, Maria Elena  and Gisele Del Busto of Maria Elena Headpieces celebrated with us. Also Jorge Manuel, who designed our salon, and Edgardo Bonilla, who designed our front windows. James Brown of Rivini and Amber Strickland of Sareh Nouri came in from New York. Thank you to the vendors, many […]

Roslidah, in Incredible Ines Di Santo, Marries David at the Beverly Wilshire

Some weddings have an innate poshness to them; this is one of them. Lovella bride Roslidah looked marvelous in a strapless trumpet gown with a beautifully-embellished bust and trim by Ines Di Santo. The dress looked incredible with her complexion. Roslidah opted for dazzling statement earrings as her only jewelry; a fine choice. Her bridal look was made complete with chic Brian Atwood shoes and a nearly all-white bouquet. The bride and her groom David married at the famous Beverly Wilshire hotel in Beverly Hills on a bright, sunny day. The couple walked up and down a picture-perfect aisle lined in bright pink and fuchsia petals. The reception space was outfitted in tall, tropical floral arrangements by Empty Vase Florist of Los Angeles, with a towering gilded wedding cake by The Butter End Cakery as a centerpiece to the room. Congratulations to Roslidah and David!     Credits: Photography: Duke […]
