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 […]
We are spellbound. This recipe of an Ines Di Santo ball gown, perfect pastel florals, gilded couture cakes, and impeccable styling make this shoot almost too fabulous to handle. Krista Fox and Paige Lewis once again make magic in this Elegant Wedding spread, “Parisian Princess.” The shoot was recently featured on Style Me Pretty too, under the guise of a Maria Antoinette theme. (Click on both links to view many more photos.) If you love this off-the-shoulder Ines Di Santo gown, we’re positive we carry a similar style by the designer that you’ll love; contact us for more information. Prepare to be inspired. Enjoy!

Indulge in viewing these towering confections fit for a spring wedding. Height, even if only an illusion (with, say, stuffed florals between tiers), is the name of the game more than ever. We love the idea of building up instead of out. Do you suppose taller is better? We do. Enjoy! Credits: 1 Corina V.

Last month we participated in Party Bravo’s Luxury Weddings & Special Events EXPO at the Marriott Hotel in Irvine, California. Thank you to all who came out for an afternoon of inspiration and fun! The event was a nice mix of fashion and design inspiration, food sampling (hello, Sprinkles!), and entertainment. We were the “fashion” portion of the event, presenting the latest and greatest in bridal gowns from our salon. Models cruised the scene in gowns by Ines Di Santo, Rivini, Ysa Makino and Stephen Yearick; kudos to them for enduring several wardrobe changes. Thank you to Alice Atakhanian of Beyond Beauty Parlor for completing their bridal looks with hair and makeup. And the timing couldn’t be better: we’re hosting an Ines Di Santo trunk show this weekend (March 14-16), and the designer herself will be making a personal appearance. If you see a gown you love below, contact us […]
Last year we elected to Celebrate New Year’s in Gold, Silver & Black. This year is much of the same… but spiked with even more dazzle! And why must New Year’s be the only time to celebrate big? We should all take time here and there to throw a party and celebrate. Here’s to a glitzy good time this New Year’s Eve. Stay safe. We’ll see you in 2014!
