Baby, it was always you

Basel and Zeena knew each other “since forever “. But on one summer night in Lebanon and one single rose later, the two became inseparable.

When i asked Zeena about her wedding theme, she just smiled and said “Fun” and it was exactly that ! Their first dance was like something from the movies,  the dance floor was full all night long and everyone had a great time especially the newly weds!

6 months before her wedding day, the bride contacted me about making a custom headpiece, she was hesitant at first to work with me because my designs were more floral and boho while she was looking for a statement piece to match her pretty ball gown. I thank Zeena everyday for pushing me out of my comfort zone. Together, we created one of the most beautiful pieces ever and on that special day, i had a very happy bride

“I really think the headpiece made such a big statement on the overall look, i’m so glad i made it with you” …. Zeena, i feel the same way

Love is a breeze … when it’s true

When this Bride approached me with her wedding style vision, she described it as a mix of my two personal favorite styles  – chic and charming. With her full confidence in our designs we created a custom version of the {MELIA} headpiece from our Spring/Summer 2017 collection. This original Belles By Raquel concept is made of 100’s of floral charms, beads and pearls. Hand wired individually to have a natural finish form , this lovely style can be worn as a headband, a crown, a back crown or a semi-halo. It is also the perfect match for a veil. We loved how Christelle styled it with her long locks and beautiful lace ESPOSA dress and we’ve got the pretty photos to share with you right here.
