The Beauty of Provence Inspires Wonderful Wedding Dress Choices

Yes, we know – deciding which dress (or dresses) to wear for your wedding is a HUGE decision. We were excited to see this shoot, because it shows so beautifully how your venue can influence your decision. It also shows how you can go in two entirely different direction and get a fabulous look with either choice (although we are thinking one of these dresses for your ceremony and one for your reception!)

From the photographer:
Our vision for this shoot was based on three things; the stunning Provence countryside, the unique colouring of our model, and the two diverse, beautiful gowns. Our goal was to capture the beauty of simplicity and movement, capturing old world charm with a youthful and modern twist.

Beautiful Wedding Reception On The Beach At Sandals Resort St. Lucia

A  destination wedding in a place you love can turn one special day into multiple days of relaxation and celebration with your family and friends. Sandals Resorts St. Lucia shared with us that many of their brides place this consideration at the top of their reasons for deciding to have a destination event. Sandals Aisle to Isle experience makes planning this extended experience easier, offering couples their own “wedding entourage” – a team of experts that handle everything from planning to execution. Your entourage will assist with resort selection (chose from the Sandals Grande St. Lucian, Sandals La Toc, or Sandals Halcyon) venue scheduling, on-site logistics, and the numerous details throughout the wedding stay and honeymoon. The team will also have suggestions for welcome celebrations, spa days, groomsmen outings and other activities.

All weddings at Sandals Resorts in St. Lucia (whether five guests or fifty) include: a one hour cocktail reception; bride and groom signature cocktail; a pre-travel surprise gift; your entourage of expert planners; preparation of your wedding documents; guest seating on white Chivari chairs; manicure for the bride; 30 minute foot massage for the groom; your personalized wedding website and gift registry; pre-recorded musical accompaniment; honeymoon dinner; breakfast in bed; and a 5×7” wedding photograph. No matter what you need to make your wedding complete, your Sandal’s team can help. Need customizable stationary, a photographer, or a videographer (yes, even a drone) – Aisle to Isle makes it possible!

As an incentive to indulge in every aspect of the Luxury Included offerings at Sandals Resorts, wedding couples are also given additional incentives for extending their time in paradise. Couples who stay six nights or longer, receive Premium Perks with gift credits valued at $1,500; and any couple staying three to five nights may opt for a Mokara orchid-inspired free wedding design that includes Mokara bouquet, boutonniere and two-tiered cake with Mokara orchid topper. As if that isn’t enough, the more guests that join your celebration with booked rooms, the more tangible rewards you will earn.

Your wedding – your reception – your honeymoon – your way! Enjoy your beautiful day and let Sandals Resort Weddings take care of all the details.

This Bride Evokes All the Audrey Hepburn Prima Ballerina Vibes
It’ll come as no surprise that Audrey Hepburn’s earliest career ambitions were to become a professional ballerina and the beloved actress will forever be known as one of the most fashionable women in history, and we couldn’t help thinking of Audrey the moment we laid eyes on this bride. Amy Cambell Photography captured Shannon in her Amsale gown, which looks like it was made for her with its crepe bodice and sheer back that fit the bride like a glove and the tulle skirt that harkened back to her own ballet days. Clearly, this would be a timeless, elegant affair, so don’t miss a second of it, filmed by Reel Special.

Stunning Destination Wedding Inspiration from Lake Como

From the stylist:

“Dreams are like feathers – if during life you can gather lots of them, one day you will be ready to spread your wings, towards your destiny” Sergio Bambarén

Feathers are a symbol of both lightness and harmony, and the detail that we chose as the inspiration for this shoot. Through this work, we wish to inspire brides to search for details that can create an elegant and intimate wedding day.
Since we were looking for a mysterious and romantic tone of the shoot, Lake Como was the perfect exclusive location for us and Villa Pizzo was the impeccable venue with its centennial tradition. Together with Innocenti Studio, we desired to capture the wedding of Nate and Olivia, young lovers looking for a timeless place that consecrates their union.
Some of the people that made each detail special and unique are Antonio Riva – who dresses the bride with a gown of a candid colour and an infallible geometry – and Barbara Botta with her soft and romantic compositions made of greenery, eucalyptus, white lilies and a touch of blush of roses. Some precious details contribute to make the shoot so refined: carefully designed stationery to recall the ceiling of the villa, the renaissance style of the mise en place, the wedding cake based on leaves and feathers shapes. The result is a shot one in a million.
