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

A Fall Wedding in Cleveland

I am thrilled to be able to share this next wedding with you! Until now, brides featured in the Real Brides section have been brides that I've connected with online but today's bride is from the Cleveland area and I was able to assist her in person! When I met with the gorgeous bride, she knew exactly what type of veil she wanted. A mantilla style, no blusher veil with embellishments to compliment the stunning bodice on her gown.

Of course, no fall wedding in Cleveland is complete without a portrait session in the metro parks, so I...
