BHLDN: Summer Loves Collection

Have you seen BHLDN's new summer collection? We were blown away! From the gorgeous textures to the blissful color palette, we were in awe. The BHLDN team sent over some beautiful images for me to share with you and I'm so excited to hear your thoughts.

Shot on the sands of Noordhoek Beach in Cape Town, South Africa, the collection breathes romance and exudes a delicate femininity. Here's what the team had to say about their latest collection:

"She moves to the beat of her heart. The summer sun seems to rise only for her, catching the light as she skims the shoreline. She kisses the sea and falls, heart first, into the blue abyss. It’s that indescribable feeling of falling in love, the feeling that inspired BHLDN to bring “Summer Loves” to life with its latest collection of creative imagery."


Tiered layers of rose tulle and glistening sequins highlight the exceptional handwork displayed throughout this collection. We love the natural incorporation of bridal separates and relaxed bridesmaids styles that truly capture the essence of the modern-day bride. Bravo, BHLDN!

Oscar de la Renta Spring 2016

I was honored to be invited to attend the preview of Oscar de la Renta's Spring 2016 bridal collection just a few weeks ago. I was absolutely devastated that I couldn't make it, but was lucky enough to be sent some absolutely incredible photos of the collection by their fabulous team that I can't wait to share with you!

Designer Peter Copping debuted his first bridal collection for Oscar de la Renta making this a very special, and bittersweet, affair. Mr. de la Renta’s innate sense of romance and glamour was preserved within this collection. From luscious tulle to whimsical organza, there were plenty of magical textures waltzing down the runway. Modern silhouettes and shimmering sequins also made an appearance, as did a convertible gown! Elegant bustier tops and organic tiered layers were a highlight of this modern, yet timeless collection.

Copping did a wonderful job of incorporating his own creativity into a renown wedding line that will live forever in the hearts of brides and fashionistas alike. His collection celebrated Oscar’s legacy and allowed it to live on in a fresh, beautiful way.

The Dress!

I've always loved this photo from my time at Vera Wang in Boston. It's so crazy to think that in the coming weeks, I'll be on the other side of the dress searching experience! I know the anxiety and excitement that a bride feels from helping so many brides find their dream dress and it's so surreal to be experiencing that myself. I know my mom, MOH and bridesmaid will be the perfect team to help me find the dress of my dreams, but I just hope it's out there!

From the cut to the fabric, Vera has definitely spoiled me. It will be difficult not to compare every gown to her perfect designs, but I will have to break out of my shell and try some new things to make sure I find the perfect dress. I want it to epitomize who I am and who I want to become as a wife to the love of my life!

So... here we go!
