Bridal Style: French Glamour

I think most women I know are obsessed to some degree with the glamour of the French. And this real Santa Barbara bride from French Canada has that certain jen ne sais quoi in spades. I love the pearl accents and the black bow makes this dress ever so chic.

Throw in a classic car, a doggie in a bow tie (!) and a beautiful white bouquet and you’ve got one elegant and timeless look. Would you go with a French vibe for your wedding day?

Wedding Editorial: Equestrian Elegance


This wedding editorial was designed by Ariel Yve and inspired by Ralph Lauren. Naturally a polo field made for the perfect backdrop (this is the same location that the royals played not to long ago).

For the tabletop design, rustic burlap was made feminine with an overlay of alencon lace from La Tavola Linen. To further play with texture, leather cord was used on the elegant paper invitations by Zenedia Designs.

For the wedding fashion, an elegant Ines de Santo dress was styled with a low chignon and Stella & Dot Jewelry.

For a bit of whimsy one cake display was set on a swing, while the other was placed on an elegant buffet with blue horse ribbons. Blue was also brought into the tabletop design with classic blue and white china. Thank you Ariel for sharing this inspiration and Michael & Anna Costa for the beautiful photos!
