Mantilla veils for Brides and Couples: New Collection Spring/Summer 2017

You may have noticed a range of new mantilla veils on the site! For the past few months, I have been putting together a collection of bridal and couples mantilla veils inspired by the special requests I've received by many of my past brides. The new Spring/Summer 2017 collection is all about bringing a modern twist to the traditional, classic design of a Spanish mantilla veil. Like our previous collections, there is no shortage of sophistication, elegance and exquisite Spanish craftsmanship. The modern detailing will still serve brides seeking vintage and traditional lace veils while brides seeking a modern approach to the traditionally classic piece will equally find appreciation for the new collection.

Bridal Boudoir

A bridal boudoir session with your photographer is the perfect way to get more use out of your wedding veil.

Lavender Purple Wedding Ideas

Last December, I was asked to participate in a styled shoot featuring romantic wedding accents in delicate shades of violet. It was such a treat to collaborate with with a group of talented wedding vendors right here in the Cleveland, Ohio area!

We chose our Juliana Veil because the darling scalloped shaped lace and soft beading detail perfectly complimented the lace on the sweetheart gown. When this mantilla veil catches the light, it has a subtle sparkle; just enough to enhance the dress' beautiful details. Lush florals, hand-lettered invitations and...

Romantic Lavender Wedding Winter Photo Shoot

Besides bringing you top-quality Spanish lace veils, I love working with like-minded business owners! This month, I had the pleasure of getting to know and collaborating with talented wedding vendors in the area on a styled photo shoot to create a jaw-dropping romantic lavender wedding! A fairy-tale wedding dress with a lace bodice, embellished waistband and full skirt was the perfect compliment to our Juliana Cathedral Length Mantilla Veil. It provided just the right amount of sparkle to compliment the lace and waistband on the dress. We chose to have the mantilla placed at the crown of the head to create a modern yet timeless look. Tufted cream chairs and a rustic farm table flattered the shabby-chic candelabras while lavender...
