Maybe it’s my early training in textiles + love for unique fabrics, but when a collection like Elie Saab’s Spring / Summer 2015 comes around you just have to stop, stare and be thankful that such craftsmanship still exists in fashion today. This collection is truly a work of art and offers endless inspiration for weddings + beyond. Here are my favorites, apparently I am partial to a full skirt.

The entire fashion show is pretty amazing too: Elie Saab Paris Couture Week Spring Summer 2015
A few months ago I had the honor of gathering a group of local vendors and creatively directed + styled this photo shoot for mywedding Magazine. The digital magazine was released last week and on February 17th the print magazine will be on newsstands. Here are a few of my favorites from the digital issue + I’ll be posting a bit more once the issue is in print! Enjoy these dreamy film images from Kate Ignatowski + the amazing creative team is listed below.

Sifting through some of my favorite wedding blogs I stumbled across an amazing set of photos behind the scenes of the Fall 2015 Sareh Nouri Bridal show from Mille B. Photography on Bridal Musings. I can look at them all day. Yards of tulle, lace and fresh faced girls in asymmetrical braids. Inspiring!
