Winter Wonderland Elopement Inspiration


There's nothing better than cozying up on a snowy day with the one you love, right? 

We're celebrating the beauty of Winter with this refreshingly cool elopement 
from D'Arcy Benincosa Photography and Lacy Geary Design.




Our Gold French lace gilded veil adds a touch of warmth to the bride's ensemble and the muted landscape, while the beautiful drape of this Leanne Marshall gown set the scene for the beautiful bride to drift and dance throughout the magical Winter landscape.

Ireland Heirloom Wedding Inspiration


An heirloom wedding is one we hold close to our hearts, as we are strong believers in embracing the treasures that have been passed down through generations.

Our friend Pamela Barefoot thoughtfully curated a glimpse into the past by incorporating her own cherished heirlooms into this stunning wedding session, beautifully photographed by Amelia Johnson.


Every detail evokes a feeling of nostalgia while capturing the sweet anticipation from inside the bride's boudoir to the intimate moments alone with her groom against the breathtaking Irish countryside.

The bride wore our Juliet French Lace Robe. Elegant by nature, the Juliet robe was designed to be a cherished treasure for years to come.

Handmade from exquisite French leavers lace, we handpicked for its delicate florals and lined in soft tulle for an ethereal look.

Tara Lipinski's Romantic Charleston Wedding




Tara Lipinski has been known for beauty and grace ever since winning the Olympic Gold in figure skating. An admirer of all things glam, we knew from the moment she got in touch with us that her wedding would be one to remember...

Tara Lipinski and sports producer Todd Kapostasy tied the knot this summer at the historic Middleton Place in Charleston, South Carolina. 

Tara Lipinski wore our Swan Queen French lace robe on her wedding day

With best friend and groomsman Johnny Weir by her side, Tara got ready while wearing our Swan Queen lace robe lined in champagne silk, surrounded by close friends and family. 



Her blonde waves and fresh, pretty make-up perfectly took her from the boudoir to modern Southern belle bride. Dressed in a stunning hand-embroidered strapless sweetheart bustier gown with a circular lace skirt by Reem Acra and a detachable 20-foot tulle train, Tara radiated classic bridal beauty.



Tara said “I felt like I was living in the moment with all of my friends by my side and marrying the love of my life — it was the best day of my life.”

We're thrilled to have been a part of Tara's dream day, and we wish the newlyweds all the best. Congratulations Tara and Todd!

La Vie en Rosa French Lace


Introducing The Rosa French lace Collection 






Inspired by the romantic, vintage rosettes found on our Rosette French lace, and reimagined with a freshly alluring, and soft, modern feel. 

This lush and luminous new collection is defined by the Chantilly lace roses that beautifully decorate your body in clever places, and creates the most luxurious and feminine feel.


We designed this collection for the curious, passionate girl dreaming of the perfect wedding: a day where every detail expresses an exceptional happiness, born from her own perfect romance. This modern woman is also an old-fashioned girl; with a weakness for vintage style. 



Each piece is perfect for Spring and Summer brides and her maids, brides-to-be, and honeymoon lounging. This angelic range was made to wrap you in soft, exquisite French leavers lace and pure silk accents in a pale shade of ivory.



Delicate features include scalloped Chantilly lace edges found along the hem and sleeves of the Rosa kimono and crop top. 




To complete the look, we created matching French lace panties in a flattering bikini cut. 



Made of ultra soft French leavers lace with a soft stretch waist for a perfect fit to seamlessly go from day to nighttime wear. Allover rose motifs are framed in delicate scalloped edges to create a lovely look.




Crafted in the loveliest palette of off-white, dusty pink and black for your big day and beyond - the Rosa collection is meant for the bride that wants to celebrate herself, her style, and her love!

Enchanted by Bella Belle Shoes

We're celebrating Bella Belle's stunning new Enchanted collection! A must-see fairytale featuring a gorgeous range of bridal shoes and a handpicked selection of our pieces!

When Erina and Veronyca of Bella Belle Shoes contacted us to be part of their new campaign, we were thrilled at the chance to collaborate with them. As admirers and friends of their brand, we couldn't wait to see the outcome of their Enchanted lookbook - inspired by a lush Spring garden overflowing with succulent florals. 

Beautifully photographed by Kurt Boomer, and with Joy Proctor creative directing, styling, and collaborating on the design of three pairs of heels, we knew an array of gorgeousness was about to bloom.



Our Floating Roses circle veil and Roseline French lace veil were cleverly styled to mirror the handcrafted floral details found throughout Bella Belle's range. 


Elegant and understated style shines through Enchanted, and inspired us to handpick boudoir pieces that would flaunt the beauty of the collection. 

We chose our Pour le Boudoir lace robe for its rich floral motifs, sheer netting, and alluring scalloped edges. It's vintage-inspired look paired perfectly with both the Belle booties and Willow flats.





Our Godiva French lace bodysuit styled with a sheer tulle skirt made for a breathtakingly soft and dreamy boudoir look that stole our heart.




We are head over heels for Enchanted

One of our favorite wedding shoes are the Belle booties, designed by Joy Proctor. The Belle's are adorned with delicate silk and tulle petals, and pearl accents, and are so beautifully styled with our Roseline veil in fingertip length

We love the creative styling of our veils to showcase the collection. Coupling your wedding veil with your bridal shoes is such lovely inspiration for brides to style on their day!


Another favorite is a very special edition of the Priscilla lace slipper! We thought up the idea of designing lace slippers after receiving multiple requests from our brides, and with help from Bella Belle, Priscilla came to life! 

Beautiful to wear while getting ready, while sipping champagne and getting your hair and makeup done. They make the perfect gift for the bride-to-be and her bridesmaids. 

Available on our site here


Our collaboration and friendship with Bella Belle has been a magical journey.

We are so thankful for all we share in common: a love of our clients, a passion for handmade and high quality products, admiration for architecture, and no detail forgotten...
