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.
Jadie Jo Photography did a fantastic job at capturing these brides in their gowns on their special day.
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.
Take a peek at the original belt for Cedra.
Here is also a look at the back of this amazing wedding gown.
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.
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.
One of the privileges of this business is the opportunity to work with amazing photographers and other creatives at every styled shoot we do.
A photographer (one of my favorite if we’re being perfectly honest) did this stunning styled shoot that was recently featured in a national blog. I love how she allowed the dress and the beautiful bride, aka model, to shine and everything else just fell into the background.
Take a look for yourself and tell me what you think.
