With a whimsical color palette to set the mood and an enchanting backdrop to rival any ceremony, we’re saving all of these styled elopement shoot photos from Tyler + Lindsey for endless dreamy lakeside wedding inspiration! The model bride and groom’s rings from The True Gem dazzled on display among sprigs of earthy foliage and greenery. Woody decor elements and vintage furniture rentals from Gold Dust Vintage Rentals in the table setting played on the outdoor scenery, but the bride’s standout baby blue ball gown brought an unexpected element of pizzazz to the shoot! Perhaps the sweetest detail of all was in the Loft 22 Cakes three-layer white frosted cake with a love quote for the couple inscribed on the bottom layer. Such a special way to commemorate the first bite of wedded bliss! Cheers!

Galia Lahav’s new collection of gowns is guaranteed to catch your attention. After taking a look at the Victorian Affinity line, it  is easy to see why these stunning dresses are taking the bridal fashion world by storm. The line was named after the era in which they were inspired – a time period that was known for its innovations and revolution. As stated in the story behind this collection, the day to day atmosphere during this time was recognized with optimism, romance and admiration for the feminine body. Showcasing an extraordinary color palette of porcelain ivory, dusted silves, washed pinks, smoky blush and an array of creams, these bold yet classic styles, in addition to their deep colored backgrounds, feature delicate textured lace and pay careful attention to detail from the neckline to the hem. Speaking of necklines, be sure to admire the stunning Victorian trademarked high collars as well as the dramatic detachable sleeves and capes. Another nod to Victorian couture featured in this collection are the visionary silhouettes and endless trains that cascade down the aisle. We are truly taken aback by the beauty and elegance this collection offers and can’t wait to see our brides dazzle in these magnificent gowns!

Thankfully, The Bridal Salon at Neiman Marcus is giving you the opportunity to try on these dreamy dresses at their upcoming Galia Lahav Trunk Show.  The pop-up event will be held July 29-30. Spaces are limited, so register ahead here or cal 214.573.2663 to save your spot to shop!  Happy Shopping!
