The Elegant Wedding Showcase

Showcasing at Bridal Shows are always a fun way to meet and chat it up with new blushing brides plus there’s usually an abundant amount of cake samples bopping around so needless to say, we quite enjoy these events.

This past Sunday was no exception. The Elegant Wedding Showcase was held at the Renaissance Hotel at International Plaza. The beautiful venue was made even more elegant when our models took to the runway to show off stunning bridal gowns by Augusta Jones, Nicole Miller, Amsale, and Cristiano Lucci. This season is all about low backs, illusion tops, and soft details that can romanticize through the last dance.

What bridal gown details are your favorite? Have you gone to any bridal shows to help in planning for the big day?

Feature in Southern Weddings Magazine!

We were so excited to provide the brides dress and accessories in this darling winter inspired wedding photo shoot. What we loved even more was the couple featured, are real life high school sweethearts who actually had just got engaged!

She wore a Reem Acra gown and he in his dress blues while snow lightly flickered around them. I mean, seriously? We may have forgotten for a moment that this wasn’t a real wedding!

Here are a few of the amazing shots Bumby Photography captured. Check out the rest at our feature in Southern Weddings Magazine.

 

 

Amsale – Our Latest Obsession

Have we mentioned lately how thrilled we are to officially carry Amsale bridal gowns? These gowns are classic bridal meets modern sophistication to us.  The designer Amsale Aberra started her career when she was getting married and realized wedding gowns were overly designed.

Since then, she has captured elegant simplicity in her designs and presented them in a polished tone by utilizing only the most luxurious textiles.

“I want a bride to be thrilled with her wedding-day look for years to come, because her dress has a timeless beauty that reflects her true essence,” says Amsale. Well, we couldn’t’ agree more Amsale!

 

 

 

 

One Reem Acra Gown and The Cutest Proposal Ever.

When Studio 222 Photography planned a beach wedding photo shoot, this real life couple would pose as models for the shoots newlyweds.

Little did Colleen know that her beau Justin, had been planning a surprise proposal to occur in the middle of the shoot!

We were thrilled to be apart of this experience by loaning this gorgeous powder blue Reem Acra gown for Colleen to wear. She looked effortlessly whimsical and romantic as Justin become her real life fiancé.

We just had to share the images of this amazing couple as they celebrate their descent into nuptial bliss!
