Atoussa, In Love

Once, twice, three times a lady! And that lady celebrated her love across 3 different continents, each time adorned with a different head piece from our Spring/Summer 2018 collection. I was also so lucky to accessorize her bridesmaids at the Vancouver affair.

Nothing sort of Pinterest worth images from my stunning bride Atoussa

Rasha, In Love

“And they call it Poppi love”

Rasha and Amer gathered their families and close friends in an intimate ceremony held at the Tuscan village of Poppi . The event was 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

The perfect Tuscan venue {Real Bride}

I attended a friend’s intimate wedding at one of the prettiest venues in Italy, Borgo Corsignano. Set between the hills of Casentini in the charming village of Poppi, the romantic retreat is exactly what a bride needs to have a perfect Tuscan wedding.

The venue welcomed the guests in renovated villas with terracotta tile floors, country side interiors and fireplaces. So charming! Here are some images i took during my stay

La Dolce Vita!

Real Belle Bride {Marguerite}

When your wedding details include a Tuscan courtyard, a neo-renaissance ballroom and garden historically visited by Queens then you are our uber romantic and classy bride Marguerite.

Her reception was held at the charming villa Fattoria Di Maiano a few kilometers away from the picturesque views of Florence and if this isn’t enough to make you swoon, the couple hosted their rehearsal dinner at Villa Mangiacane, a 15th century winery villa built for the Machiavelli family with rumors that Michelangelo himself participated in the design!

For her look, Marguerite chose an ivory Oscar de la Renta strapless with delicate flowers and styled her hair with our Diamond Dust rhinestone hair vine. Her adorable flower girls were dressed by The Bridal Showroom.

Here are our favorite picks from this wedding ❤

Can anything be more perfect than having a castle surrounded by enchanting olive gardens as the backdrop to say your I Dos?

Samah chose an ethereal chiffon dress with gold details, wore her hair in a low and lose messy bun which she styled with a BellesByRaquel champagne toned Lou Fleur crown ❤
