Timeless is spelled Danah

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.

Here is Danah

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!

Rosa Clara {Bridal Collection 2017}

One thing is for sure, this collection’s Rosa Clara bride will be elegantly timeless. There will be no what-if, no  should’ve because these dresses are beautiful yesterday, today and forever.

I love the fluid contours, the grace kelly look from the front with the metallic chantilly surprises on the back. The bows that look like open tulips and petals along with the pearl accessories puts Rosa Clara in my top collections from this year’s bridal week.

Here are my picks
