Give It Up For Love

Real effortless beauty Ashley wore a bespoke hair vine, handmade using pretty pearls and rhinestone, across her loose cascading hairstyle.

We  love how timless and chic she looked as she said I Do to her beau in the most intimate and romantic setting

And They Call It Poppi Love

Poppi,Italy. The epitome of Tuscan romance.

Rasha and Amer gathered their families and close friends in an intimate ceremony filled with happy tears, dancing and lots of smiles. I was honored to be part of their 3 day elopement and wish them nothing but health, happiness and years of Poppi love

Rasha, in a gorgeous blush gown styles her hair in a custom tiara inspired by the Russian Ballet, as a dancer herself , i had to bring in something personal into the design. Here are some of my favorite images from the wedding, captured by Nicola Tonolini

Into Her Secret Garden

Iman and Mohamad celebrated their engagement in an intimate secret garden themed night filled with rustic inspired flowers and wreaths.

Iman complimented the night perfectly and beautifully with a blush cream colored gown and adorned her hair with a custom headband that had gold and pearl details.

Congratulations!
