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.

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.

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! With the violet hues casted at dusk as the inspiration, we each contributed lavender purple wedding ideas and other stylish details to create inspirational bridal portraits that are truly enchanting. 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...
