Lavender has an "old world feel," which we love. It brings not just color, but scent and texture to your wedding palette. Fold in shades of green to accent its natural beauty while elements of gold make it feel sophiscated and timeless. Things like lavender champagne and lavender desserts are direct ways to bring the theme to life, and folding bits of lavender into boutonnieres and the wedding bouquet will also wash the day in a sense of calm.
New Zealand-based, Rue de Seine does it again with their Love Spell collection. Epic fabrics and completely unique silhouettes define a group of gowns so gorgeous you can't look away. Blake stands out with her cotton crochet lace and fitted slhouette. The open back and optional arm bands, both trimmed in tassels, are awe-inspiring.

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.
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.
