Classic Summer Provence Wedding featured on Style me pretty

The end of Summer is just around the corner, although it's a little harder to tell here in Florida, and with today's real wedding feature on Style Me Pretty, we think it's the perfect time to reflect on the past few months, and anticipate what's coming up for us in the next year!

This gorgeous Provence wedding has us dreaming about the wonderful summer we had. All beautifully captured by Nadia Meli Photography, these images have us swooning over every detail from Florence and Anthony's charming, rustic wedding. The color palette they chose is so lovely, we just love how the light pinks and powder blues were used! From the groom's bold tux, to the soft bouquets and centerpieces, all the colors blended so beautifully to create a fresh and organic atmosphere.

Florence wore our soft Elizabeth getting ready robe, made from cotton lace. She looked so serene while getting her makeup done before slipping into her Reem Acra gown. Her bridesmaids also beamed with delight and looked so pretty in their baby blue tulle bridesmaids skirts! What a fun twist on traditional bridesmaid attire!

This wedding is beyond breathtaking. The perfect combination of classic elegance, with a carefree lightheartedness. It was such a pleasure creating something special for Florence's special day!

We'll be dreaming of the long summer days that are finally coming to an end...

Pink & Gold Garden Romance: Gina & Timothy's Ballroom Wedding by Kina Wicks

When our bride, Gina, first contacted us, we were thrilled to work with her to create a custom getting ready robe for her gorgeous garden themed wedding. 

Sweet and soft color palettes, and an abundance of floral accents are some of our favorite wedding elements, and Gina and Timothy got it all just right inside the Renaissance Ballroom of Chicago's Blackstone Hotel

All beautifully captured by Kina Wicks Photography, this romantic wedding was truly gorgeous!

Real bride wearing our Kate french lace robe while getting ready

Back at the hotel with her beautiful bridesmaids, Gina wore our lined Kate lace robe while getting ready. Made out of French lace and lined in a luxurious silk chiffon, Gina was wrapped in a soft floral motif worthy of her elegant garden arrangement. And to keep the theme going, she gifted her girls a set of coral and pink floral getting ready robes to wear before slipping into their pale pink chiffon bridesmaid dresses. 

Before the ceremony, Gina and Tim were able to spend a few private moments wandering around Grant Park, taking in the lush botanical charm that provided inspiration for the exquisite decor. Shades of soft pink and peach could be spotted from the edge of the aisle and garland centerpieces, to the sweet bridal bouquets of delicate roses and dahlias. 

Garden romance followed Gina inside the brilliant white and gold ballroom, accentuated with the perfect balance of blush pinks and green. The classic style and structure of the ballroom was brought to life with glistening candlelight and the freshness of the florals. With every step of her gold Burberry wedding shoes she glowed brighter (and not just from the plenty of shimmering candles!). With every turn of her Vera Wang mermaid gown, wedding bliss radiated the room. The captivating light-filled venue and gorgeous florals all blended seamlessly for a heart-stirring event.    

Gina was so kind when we spoke, we knew we wanted to capture the sweetness of her personality with the timeless elegance of her wedding - and the final results are absolutely breathtaking! Gina's special day unfolded so beautifully, it was featured on 3 different wedding blogs: StyleMePretty, Snippet & Ink, and Brides Magazine

As for her Kate lace robe - she's saving it for those special occasions that call for something exceptional. She plans on wearing it again for her anniversary as a lovely reminder of her pre-wedding stroll through the garden, and the bright & brilliant ceremony that marked the first day of newlywed life.
