Wedding planning is a hectic, and even hellish time for all brides – but add to the pyre the stress of making your own wedding dress by hand? Plus five bridesmaid dresses? It’s a trial few brides could withstand. But sew-happy Portland bride Suzannah was determined to create her perfect dress piece-by-piece. The result: this gray tulle daydream!
Amazing, isn’t it? Ralph Lauren can now be credited with crafting two of this year’s most stunning wedding gowns. The first, for daughter Dylan, was a silk tulle-and-duchess satin dress with the mermaid hem. (Notably not strapless.) And now this.
Mesmerising doesn’t even begin to describe how we feel about this black and white bridal fashion shoot by Josh Zuckerman. Inspired by the work of photographer John Goodman, whose series Boxers and Ballerinas explored the intuitive movement of the body, the images Josh created here are equally as stirring.
Katie and Kyle dated for five years, two of them long distance, before tying the knot in San Clemente this past summer. But as we all know, it’s not the location that creates a memorable military wedding, it’s the uniform. The groom looked his best in his United States Marine Corps Officer Dress Blues uniform, a look that can’t be outdone by even the most stylish black tuxedo. Meanwhile, Katie stole the spotlight, as every bride should, in a knockout strapless wedding gown. As a handmade touch, the bride’s mother-in-law crafted a beaded crystal belt that took this popular Pronovias gown from pretty to positively unforgettable. Just look.
Every girl dreams of being on the runway, and that’s exactly where this couple’s first class day after photo shoot by Kristyn Hogan was held. This vintage airport photo session combined the couple’s love for travel (the groom and his award-winning vocal play group are currently on tour with Michael Buble) and all things elegant. Their wedding, held at Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame, was recently featured in the latest issue of Munaluchi Bride.
