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. She opted for the Fernanda Mantilla Veil and I think the result was spectacular! Below are pictures of her beautiful cathedral ceremony. Of course, no fall wedding in Cleveland is complete without a portrait session in the metro parks, so I...

Cathedral Polka Dot Mantilla Veil

Could there be anything more darling than polka dots? With this dotted trend showing up on wedding runways everywhere, the demand for a polka dot veil is as popular as ever! Today's real bride opted for the Julieta Mantilla, a cathedral polka dot mantilla veil. Most brides who contact me want to wear one of our polka dot mantillas for their vintage inspired wedding. What I love about Vanessa's wedding day look is that her wedding felt very classic and elegant. She opted for a diamond white satin dress and had a traditional church ceremony. Her style choices made her polka dot mantilla veil look so regal, I’m obsessed! Here is what this California bride had to say about her...

Cathedral Lace Veil for Hawaiian Wedding

It is always so flattering to have brides from all over contact me for a Spanish handmade mantilla veil. It was my absolute pleasure to help this Hawaiian bride find exactly what she was looking for. Rosela was interested in wearing a mantilla veil on her wedding day to honor her Spanish heritage. She selected the Alejandra Mantilla and opted to have the comb sewn to the underside of the lace to wear it draped over her head. She chose traditional Hawaiian accents such as white roses in her hair and fresh flower leis and paired them with a classic lace gown. I love that her and her new husband were able to sneak in some photos on the beach...
