Lacey + Kevin: A Purely Elegant California Wedding by Kristeen La Brot Events
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Lacey and Kevin’s love story began online, when she gave him a wink on match.com.  Since they’ve now landed in this lovely corner of the internet, you can guess their eventual first date was a good one!  Nearly two years later, Kevin proposed in Central Park, and they planned their purely elegant California wedding long-distance. The bride says, ‘Planning a California wedding from New York isn’t exactly stress-free, but with an amazing wedding planner and fabulous vendors, anything is possible!’ Kristeen LaBrot helped to ensure every beautiful detail of the gold, silver, and pastel-palette wedding was in place, while Toby Tucker captured everything from their happy tears to the classic décor elements in these crisp, vibrant photos.

Looking every bit the classic beauty in her Enzoani gown, the bride wore her hair neatly upswept and carried one gorgeous monochromatic bouquet designed by Enchanted Garden. One of Lacey’s favorite parts of the day was carving out some pre-ceremony time with Kevin.

The pair said vows and sealed their lifetime commitment at the Pepperdine Chapel, then hosted guests at a gorgeous banquet room with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a lake for the reception.  The room was awash in the soft metallic and pastel palette, with crystal candle-holders peeking above dahlia and garden rose centerpieces.  The details were utterly romantic and photographed so beautifully in the sunlit room.  Of the design, Lacey says ‘I love the contrast of champagne and silver colors; and when you combine them with tall crystal candle holders and soft colored flowers: all I see is beauty.’ A bride with impeccable style!

Look to Love: The Sheer Corset
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Bridal Fashion, Bridal Market Spring 2014

Call it the Pnina Tornai effect—corsets are coming up sheer and sexy for Spring! We saw plenty of exposed boning on the runway this season, and we think the look is great for the bride who wants to show off her hard-earned wedding figure. More trends we noticed: draped backs, illusion necklines, modern peplums, and the Carrie Bradshaw flower corsage.

Eliza + Don: A Pretty Pink Peony Wedding By Eli Turner
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Happy Monday, PW readers! It’s a little drizzly here in DC, but you know what they say about April showers. And since it is almost May, we thought we’d go ahead and fulfill the rest of that idiom with some pretty pink flowers! Eliza and Don’s Meridian House wedding was largely inspired by the lovely peony. “They really brought a smile to the bride’s face,” says Bash event coordinator Terri Eaves, “and most of the details were planned with them in mind.” Scroll through for highlights from their 1940′s-esque affair, all captured beautifully by Eli Turner Studios, then visit the full gallery for even more romantic details.

Is the Carrie Bradshaw Flower Corsage Making a Comeback?
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Bridal Fashion, Bridal Market Spring 2014

From nameplate necklaces to Manolo Blahnik mania, Sex & the City kicked off many trends in both the fashion and bridal worlds. Feminine and flirty, one our favorite Carrie Bradshaw looks was the flower corsage she pinned to belts, lapels, and everything in-between. Many designers showed blooms pinned at the waist for Spring 2014, and we couldn’t be more happy that the style just might be making a comeback. It’s the perfect something extra for a spring ceremony, don’t you think?
