Elizabeth Dye takes our breath away yet again with her Valhalla Gown. The magic is not in short-supply with the tiered tulle skirt and sweet shoulder straps atop a fitted bustier bodoce. The empire waistline evokesa viking feel,and given the name we're not surprised that we could picture Largertha wedding Ragnar in this very gown.
An ocean landscape is filled with different shades of oceanic blues, and what better color palette for your special day on the shore? If you are holding your wedding on the beach, using the multiple shades of natural gray and seaglass blues, combined with accents of elegant gold, provides a stunning and natural look. We are loving the gold-painted oyster shells as place marks for guests to find their seat, truly tying the ocean feel in.
Alexandra Grecco is that designer who just "gets" you. She understands the modern bride in a way that is singular and unique. Her Etienne gown is a strapless, form-fitting design with elegant, off-the-shoulder ties. The silk crepe skims the body and leaves us semi-speechless.
A naked cake with minimal icing is perfect for fall, remnicent of the sparseness of the season. The rest of the dessert table echoes the theme with pomegranates, persimmon, and blackberries displayed with dark whoopie pies and taper candles. It's moody and so very "October."
Who knew the winter blues could feel so good? This moody medieval shoot has got us fully focused on dramatic stationery design, fabric-draped tables spotted in taper candles, and bouquets of privet berry, anemone, and lavender roses. And the mixed shades of blue are just too dreamy for words. Can we teleport to this magical mountainside?
Everyone loves cocktail hour. And on the big day, treating your guests to a signature cocktail is a great touch. Finding the perfect drink to showcase can be tricky, but sticking with something that complements your color scheme or the season can help narrow down the options. We are loving this sparkling clementine-thyme cocktail by Heather Christo. This drink could be a fall or winter wedding sparkler or one to bring a little more to a warm color pop. Enjoy!

This gown's delicate scalloped sweetheart neckline and unique lace sleeves are just the beginning of why we love the unique bodice with it's nude, boned underlay. The waistline drops into a silk chiffon, full A-line skirt with a gentle, yet elegant train. The silhouette is sophisticated and distinct, classic and clean. Made in NYC, each Leanne Marshall gown seems to be marked by a fresh, crisp line and simple grace.
