A Gorgeous Bride Who Customized Her Own Gown

A Gorgeous Bride Who Customized Her Own Gown
For my own wedding, I made my paper goods. But I was a stationery designer so that seemed reasonable. For this bride’s wedding…she MADE.HER.OWN.DRESS. Well, at least the top and the amazing cape. But, still. To this mere mortal, that is a feat of epic proportions and I stand in awe of the gorgeousness that came from her efforts. Photographed by the lovely, lovely Leila Brewster, fall head over heels in love with this bride, her cute hubby, these insane pics and the gown that just might need it’s own label.

An E-Session at the Four Seasons Tented Camp in Thailand
When I was little, my dad always told me that I should wait to get married until I had travelled the world. It never made any sense to me. But, I think his deeper meaning was that marriage also brings responsibilities and real life in a way that being on your own doesn’t. And turns out, he was sort of right…I haven’t travelled abroad for pleasure since my honeymoon. Well, this couple is proving his theory wrong with a STUNNING engagement shoot at The Four Seasons Tented Camp in Thailand that embraces travel and adventure and discovery and was captured so magically by KT Merry. Flawless coordination by The Wedding Bliss Thailand.

An Elegantly Relaxed Interpretation Of A White Wedding

From the photographer:
Callista and Amy worked together to conceptualize this editorial design. Inspired by the intersection of sleek, minimal design and the old world charm of The Corson Building, they set out to design a fresh look in a well loved space. Their goal was for the design to feel effortlessly romantic, but also attainable for real couples. For the floral design, Amy worked entirely with dogwoods to create a design that was simple and clean but still lush and natural. The arch was designed to look like the dogwood branches had grown up and onto it. It was surrounded by a half-circle of bistro chairs and an aisle lined with dogwood arrangements to set the scene for the ceremony. Dogwoods also elegantly adorned the berry and buttercream cake.

The reception was set under a grapevine covered terrace, and featured white ceramic plates, contemporary wine glasses, wood handled flatware, and a dusty navy and white stripped linen. Hanging lanterns added a festive glow to the space. The menus brought together romantic calligraphy with modern typeface. This old and new combination was echoed in the rest of the paper goods, as seen in the intricate drawings of venue, the couple’s family crest, and handmade vow books. The bride’s attire featured the deceivingly simple gown. What at first seems like a clean sheath reveals a fluttery cape that catches light and movement in the most feminine way. We styled both an elegant reception look with a soft updo and natural makeup, and a fun reception look by letting the bride’s hair down. The bride wore sheer booties embroidered with tulle and pearls. The engagement ring featured an elegant Asscher cut diamond. The couple escaped into the evening in a vintage convertible.

If Perfume is the Key to Your Memories…We’ve Found the Perfect One.
Lavender always reminds me of Summer. I have lavender plants growing in my own garden and that familiar smell seems to find its way into my home, always making me smile. It’s floral and fresh and sort of romantic in a sun-kissed moment kind of way. And Vera Wang has bottled it up to pure perfection with her newest addition to the Embrace collection, French Lavender and Tuberose. The perfect scent for a Style Me Pretty inspired wedding. Spray it on to your bouquet, share it with your bridesmaids or just apply right before you walk down the aisle. It will beautifully balance the magic of Summer with the intimacy of I-Do.

Unique Couple Shoot Done The Day After Their Elopement

From Mark, the photographer:
Yesterday we shared Alice and Bruce’s beautiful mountain top elopement. Today we are sharing their day after shoot in The Old England Manor. Years earlier, they had spent Christmas Eve there so it was another place holding special memories. It was easy to capture wonderful images as they strolled through the garden, remembering old memories and creating new.

From the statement wall to the pops of blue throughout, Olive & Tate designed this sweet space in just six weeks for the One Room Challenge. Tour the full room here in the gallery from Laura Sumrak!

We asked our bride, Grace, to describe her personal style, to which she said: Classic, feminine, simple, timeless.
