Lina, In Love

Lina and Christian, you can tell they’re a duo that can tick all the “5 things successful couple have” list! Gathering their nearest and dearest at Le Télégraphe de Belle Vue in Lebanon, they celebrated their union in a beautiful night under the stars, full of balloons, flowers and sparklers. Wearing a stunning off the shoulder ball gown and our floral hair vines, Lina looked like modern princess.

Our favorite moment was a balloon send off by their guests when the couple met for the first time at the wedding, it was so beautiful.

Although i never met Lina in person, i loved her vibe and when i saw her wedding pictures, i was right all along!

“I religiously followed Belles By Raquel on Instagram up until I had to choose my piece and it was a tough decision because all the pieces were beautiful like seriously there was not one piece that I wouldn’t want to own. What I love about my experience with Raquel, it was very personal and genuine. You can see from her social media presence that she is not there just to make a sale, she appreciates every bride as a friend. She gets excited for you as if you’ve known each other for ages. I did not meet Raquel or see the piece in person before buying it but not once was I worried about the quality of the piece.The packaging was so elegant and finally seeing the box I was so excited when I received it. Even though she discloses that some changes might occur to the headpiece over time, I can confidently say that my head piece after a hot and humid summer wedding remained undamaged. ”

Michelle had a picture perfect wedding at Villa Cimbrone in the picturesque town of Ravello. She wore a beautiful Georges Hobeika dress with floral lace details and made her a custom rhinestone and pearl headpiece to match the dress details.

That’s Amore

Symone, in Love

If there is one thing i love , it’s a really gorgeous real wedding and a beautiful bride, inside and out. And while a wedding is also about the unique details, flowers and decor, this wedding to me is all about the bride, Symone.

A vision in white, her dress oozes simplicity and glamour. Her hair adorned with our Melia hair vine, the subtle lip color and the overflowing foliage bouquet representing love, vitality and a delight to the senses.

I absolutely love this couple, to me they felt in the moment and real

Congratulations to Love

xoxo Raquel

Danah, In Love

And then you come across one of the most beautiful brides and you have no words to express her timeless style.

I love the way she made an understated statement, a classic veil paired with our twin Titania crowns in silver with white rhinestone and pearl accents.

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 ❤
