Both of these stunning brides wore gowns from Ella Rosa by Kenneth Winston. Ella Rosa is designed by Kenneth Winston and includes the sparkle and attention to detail found in his couture collection. Lauraine wore “Riley” and Caitlin wore “Rosalind”. These brides came in separately to pick their gowns to keep them a surprise from one another. However, they both unknowingly decided on the same designer!
Riley is a ballgown that features a sweetheart neckline and ruched bodice. The satin belt sits around the natural waist to emphasize the smallest part of a bride. This belt is accompanied by a beaded floral design. The English Netting gives this gown a romantic feel and allows for a lot of movement. Buttons down the length of the gown finish off the look of Riley. Lauraine chose a light gold color, but Riley is also available in traditional ivory.
Rosalind is a fitted gown that features a double layer of lace. The top layer is an Alencon lace that begins heavy in the bodice and trickles down the skirt. The next layer is a Chantilly lace that brings a sense of romance and delicacy to the look. Rosalind’s v-neckline has a sweetheart lining that will flatter all bust sizes. The stunning low back shows off a see-through layer of lace that gives the illusion of a larger open back. Finally, Rosalind has some incredible detail to finish off the look. The beading throughout the gown allows for a little bit of glimmer without being too overpowering. Also, the buttons down the back give a similar feel to Riley, but stop mid-skirt to compliment the fit of the gown.

This radiant bride wore “Cedra” by Aire Barcelona. This designer does a beautiful job at creating timeless pieces with a bit of Spanish flair, and this blush ballgown is a great example of this.
Cedra is a show stopper as a light blush ballgown. This dress features pleats in the waist that give the skirt a dimensional look. The off-the-shoulder neckline highlights the femininity of the bride, while the gentle dip in the back shows a more sensual side. Cedra has a few small fabric buttons that run the length of the bodice and stop just above the pleated skirt. This gown has the hidden detail of pockets! This pockets provide options for a beautiful photo opportunity, or to place to put your small accessories. A beaded floral belt finishes this unique look.

Kristie chose to keep this dress in its original form, but did opt for a larger belt to bring more sparkle to the look. This belt was matched with the same fabric and material as the gown, so it created a seamless look. She worked with our alterations team to fit this gown to her perfectly. Our in-house alterations services can range from a complete modest build up to a simple hem. Each bride has the freedom to customize her wedding look.

Brin worked with our alterations team to fill in the top to make this gown temple-ready. Our seamstress followed the scalloped pattered to fill in this neckline. Then, we extended the sleeved by a few inches to keep the modest look. Brin opted to keep the crystal buttons that follow the length of her back. She added a wider belt with a few more jewels to bring more sparkle to this look. The completed look made for a stunning modest wedding gown.
This beautiful bride wore “Remington” from Ella Rosa by Kenneth Winston. Ella Rosa is the sister brand of Kenneth Winston, and reflects the same design integrity. However, this brand is much more wedding budget friendly.
This gown originally features a beaded and lace bodice with a cap sleeve and sweetheart neckline. The illusion mesh on the back gives an open feeling, while staying covered. The lace bodice scallops along the edges and ends with eyelash lace details. The ballgown skirt is made of tulle and is edged with a delicate lace hem. Altogether, this gown has a fairy-tale feeling to it.
Here is how Remington started.
Nicole worked with our seamstress and our in-house alterations to create a beautiful sleeve. Our seamstress extended the illusion tulle out to Nicole’s wrists and then placed matching lace appliqués throughout the sleeve. Next, the appliqués were beaded to match the bodice and finally, the same eyelash detail was added to the end of the sleeve to finish the look. Nicole’s custom lace sleeves added a sense of elegance to this beautiful gown.
This lovely bride wore “West” from the Blush by Hayley Paige Collection. This show-stopping gown features Blush by Hayley Paige’s unique Marrakesh beading throughout the entire silhouette. This mermaid cut features a sweetheart neckline and low rounded back.
First, this is how West began.
Katherine worked with our in-house alterations team to create the details on her gown and make this a unique piece of work. She opted to keep the same structure that West originally starts with. However, our seamstress removed the original spaghetti strap and added a tulle off the shoulder wrap to give this gown a special touch. This gently covered Katherine’s arms and scooped across the top of her back, giving her a soft and delicate look. Katherine purchased an overskirt out of town and wanted to incorporate this into her wedding day look. Our seamstress added hooks to the waist of the gown, so the skirt could easily be added or removed as needed.
This beautiful bride wore Portia by Kelly Faetanini. This New York designer’s talent ranges from sleek and elegant to whimsical and edgy. No matter your taste, you can find a gown in one of Kelly’s stunning collections.
Portia features black Chantilly lace covering the bodice and creating delicate long sleeves. The plunging v-neckline is complemented with illusion mesh and black satin trimming. The ivory satin skirt pops against the darkness of the bodice and creates a chic look. Fabric buttons that transition color down the back finishes this stunning gown. Portia also comes in an ivory option for more of a traditional look.
Although Taylor opted to keep Portia in its original form, she worked with our seamstress and our in-house alterations to get this gown to fit like a glove. Taylor wanted a little bit of sparkle in this classic gown and added a jeweled belt to this look.
This breathtaking bride wore Style 2107 by Mikaella. This designer is based out of Toronto, Canada and does the simple elegance look with ease. Mikaella is also extremely easy to work with for customized options.
Cleo opted to keep this gown in its original form, but still worked with our in-house alterations to make it fit her like a glove. This all crepe gown is a fit to flare silhouette and features a plunging v-neckline. The straps separate into several smaller spaghetti straps on the back. This beautiful gown has a center slit in the front and fabric covered buttons that follow the length of the dress. Style 2107 originally comes with a smaller, detachable belt. However, Cleo decided to go for a larger beaded belt from the designer to complete the look.

Halo began with a cotton lace bodice featuring spaghetti straps and an open low back with strappy details. The tulle ballgown skirt is edged with horsehair trim and gives the gown an airy and light feeling while still providing volume.

Madi worked with our seamstress during our in-house alterations to create her custom modest build up. We raised the neckline, but kept the same design as the original gown.

This stunning bride wore “Kate” by Tara Keely. Lazaro designs the Tara Keely collection, and his attention to detail continues to shine through in these gowns. Kate is an excellent example of how well Lazaro does a glitter gown! Morgan added a modest flutter sleeve, which gives this gown a custom spin.

Here is a peek at how Kate looks with the overskirt included.
Our seamstress worked with Morgan during our in-house alterations to create her modest vision. First, she built up the top with a v-back and high neckline using the same shimmering fabric. During build up alterations, we carefully construct new bodices and necklines to ensure every bride is seeing their idea come to life. Finally, this classic look was complimented with a whimsical modest flutter sleeve. We used the same fabric that edges the bottom of the dress to create a beautiful and cohesive look.

This stunning bride wore Dakota from Hayley Paige’s Blush line. Hayley Paige is known for her creative and out-of-the-box bridal designs and Dakota is no exception. This gown features her jaw-dropping Marrakesh beading on the bodice and a tulle, a-line skirt. Originally this gown is designed with cap sleeves and a keyhole back. However, Shanelle worked with our in-house alterations team to build this top up into a fantastic modest wedding dress. Below are pictures of how this gown started.
Shanelle decided to keep the v-neckline, but raised it to a modest level. She then extended the cap sleeve into a full-length sleeve. This full Marrakesh beaded sleeve is perfect for any season, and amplified the beauty of this gown. Shanelle finished off her modest alterations with filling in the majority of the keyhole back. She opted to leave a small opening, just between the shoulders. Our seamstress added a beautiful touch to this opening by following the look of the neckline and detailing the edges. Shanelle topped off her look by pairing her gown with Hayley Paige’s matching veil.
