Cleveland Wedding: Real Bride

I rarely get to meet with my bridal clients in person but when I do, it is always a treat! I had so much fun helping this real bride find the perfect mantilla veil for her stunning lace dress. When I met with Amanda, she wasn't sure if she was going to wear a veil for her special day. I'm so glad she went for it! Nothing completes a bride's look quite like a veil. She chose the Carolina Mantilla which is made from french alencon lace. Her dress was also made from french alencon and although the laces were different designs, the lace trim on the mantilla is subtle enough to compliment many designs. Amanda chose to wear her...

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!

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...

Vintage Rustic New England Wedding

  I am so thrilled to be able to share this bride's wedding with you! I could tell Lisa's wedding was going to be absolutely gorgeous just from the conversations I had with her through email. She wasn't sure if she'd be wearing a floral crown or wearing her veil with or without a blusher. In the end, she chose to wear a flower crown during the reception and decided on the blusher to wear as she walked down the aisle. Her style choices were so perfect for her New England vintage rustic wedding! Lisa selected the ivory Magdalena cathedral mantilla which paired flawlessly with her lace, sweetheart top dress. The Magdalena veil is made from a french chantilly lace...
