Intimate Hawaiian Real Wedding by James Rubio Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Bright persimmon hues and deep and very vibrant fuchsias…all on the scenic island of Kauai… sounds like paradise to me. Claire and Jing’s destination wedding is a bundle of gorgeousness. The bride and groom were born in difference Chinese cities, but met in London where they attended college.  After five years there, and three subsequent years in a long distance relationship, the couple was very happy to make a home together in Hong Kong and jet off to Hawaii for an intimate celebration.  Despite some unanticipated rain, these beautiful photos by James Rubio Photography are pure proof of a joyful and stunning wedding day!

Living in Hong Kong, the couple envisioned Hawaii to be sunny and bright.  What they weren’t counting on was the continuous tropical rain.  Although minorly disappointed, they embraced the Hawaiian mist and moved forward with an outdoor ceremony that was stunning to say the least.  Martin Roberts’ floral design was the ideal blend of vibrant island elegance, framing the entire event in exotic beauty.

Claire, in a sophisticated one-shoulder Vera Wang and Jing, in a classic black tuxedo, later took more photos in the warm rains and ended up happily soaked.  The locals reported that the Hawaiian rain was good luck for a wedding!  The couple joked back, ‘Well if that’s the case, today we are indeed extremely blessed people.’

Claire is a photography fanatic and came across James Rubio’s photography from thousands of miles away.  After falling in love with his style, the plan for the Hawaiian destination wedding emerged.

The quaint reception for ten was a site to behold!  On a covered porch at the Plantation Gardens, a dinner table with architectural centerpieces and glowing candlelight was set.  With the rain misting outside, it was a cozy little setting.  

We’re loving all of this Hawaiian eye candy and Claire and Jing’s impeccable style.  The juxtaposition of island beauty with luxury and elegance so makes me swoon.

  Happy wishes to this joy-filled couple! xoxo

Day One: NYC Bridal Market Top Ten {Part One}
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

Whew!  Pardon the radio silence. It’s been a jam-packed weekend of bridal runway in New York; hopefully you’ve been catching the live-from-the-runway instagrams that we’ve posted on Facebook and Twitter.  We’re into the final day of market, running around the city seeing about a dozen more designers, but there are so many fab highlights to share!  Without further ado, here’s our top ten from day one.

no. 1 Corseted Elements by Vera Wang

In an all-ivory presentation of her signature gowns, Vera styled the newest collection with corset elements, dreamy laces and luxe embroidery that appeal equally to the classic bride, the true romantic, and the fashionista.

no. 2 Dennis Basso’s Couture Drama

Va va voom! I’m loving these drama-infused silhouettes by Dennis Basso.  A couture collection with wow factor always has a place in the highlights!

no. 3 Monique’s Feminine Romance: Bridesmaid Style

Seeing the feminine romance that is Monique Lhuillier in bridesmaid form was a total treat.  The center gown is one of my favorites from the weekend;  the fitted bodice is accented by a dropped waist and graceful tiered skirt- all in that very wearable shirred tulle.

no. 4 A Metallic Finale at Theia

Inspired by the Goddess,  designer Don O’Neill culminated his Fall 2013 runway presentation with a completely unique, rose gold and metallic ballgown silhouette.

no. 5 Lovely Temperley Laces

The always distinctive collection by Temperley London took a more classic, romantic turn this season with lots of lace, feminine shapes, and unforgettable elements of Temperley decadence.

So here’s the deal, if you just-can’t-wait-another-minute to see the new collections, you’re in luck- Follow PW on Twitter and Pinterest and connect with us on Facebook for live coverage and regular updates.   Starting tomorrow I’ll also be recapping the top ten highlights of each day right here.  Ok.. off to the shows!  See you back around these parts tomorrow…

 

P.S. Before we move into Fall 2013, here’s a look back at one of our very favorite gowns from last season’s market:  a plum-hued beauty from Vera Wang.  (…which leaves me aching to know what kind of incredible she will come up with next…)
