Elegant Latin Hacienda Wedding

I'm so excited to share with you this Elegant Latin Hacienda inspired photo shoot that was featured on the Ruffled Blog.

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...
