This was our first shooting location and it exceeded every expectation that I had about Ireland! It was so breathtaking and so beautiful! The Giant’s Causeway is a very popular spot in Ireland and it’s very obvious why! There were two little girls that noticed us take photos and they came up to us when we were done taking the pictures and asked to get a picture because they thought I was a princess! It was one of the sweetest things ever!

This is the gown 1147 from Martina Liana and it is so beyond breathtaking! The sleeves are the greatest accessory ever!! This dress can come without the sleeves and it is just as stunning. If you want a dress that is different, unique, and stands out- this is the dress for you! I love how the lace is patterned to give such dimension and depth to the dress!

Ireland : The Dark Hedges

The Dark Hedges in County Antrim, Northern Ireland

Featuring the Collins gown

 

The Dark Hedges is a place that I will never forget. A family planted these trees in the eighteenth century along the drive to their home so that the visitors would be impressed as they drove toward their mansion. Let me tell you, I was certainly impressed! If you watch Game of Thrones you might recognize this road as The King’s Road!

There was such a magical and whimsical feel. A slight mist accompanied by the perfect amount of wind gave this dress the dance it needed.  We arrived around 9am and while there were a few other groups (and a lot of cows) there we had the road mostly to ourselves!

Collins is part of our Lily Rose Collection- a collection curated for our One Fine Day Brides. These gowns are not advertised and they aren’t readily found on social media or Pinterest so you easily get the feel of a one of a kind dress. If you want your wedding look to be different and unique, the Lily Rose Collection is for you!

Bride wearing a lace and tulle horsehair ballgown wedding dress while her tulle cape blows in the wind at The Dark Hedges in Northern IrelandI know what you’re thinking- just give us the details on this gorgeous cape!! We contacted our veil and accessory maker, Sara Gabriel, and we asked if she’d be able to create a custom cape for our trip. They went above and beyond (as always) and created 4 of the most outstanding custom pieces- which you will see in following posts! This cape was just incredible! It is a gorgeous tulle scattered with pearls, sequins, and rhinestones. Capes are on the rise and they are going to be big! If you are considering wearing a veil, but just aren’t sure, this might be the perfect option for you. OR if you just want to do something unique, this is a perfect accessory for you!

Going Green

 

Okay, my current obsession is a deep green wedding vibe. Could anything be more beautiful?! It is different, unique, regal, elegant, earthy…I just love it!

Here are a few of my favorite inspiration pictures for these green tones. These photos are from our #onefinedaybrides and a styled shoot with Kiara Tuttle Photography. How amazing are these? These dark hues make your wedding dress absolutely pop!

 

A beautiful and inexpensive way to bring in the rich green tones to you wedding day is with this amazing fabric runner! I am loving this! Also, the green candles are a must have. I love the way the gold accent looks with the deep green tone.

 

Another way to bring in these green tones is to add it into your bridal party! I am dying over this velvet suit and satin bridesmaid gown. Going bold with these looks and adding in a simple white boutique would be absolutely stunning! Another way to bring in this beautiful color is to make your maid of honor stand out! Having her wear this amazing green gown would be breathtaking!

 

 

I love the look of a lace gown with the deep tones of the wedding, and this Essense of Australia gown would look absolutely perfect! I also ADORE this Lily Rose Collection gown for the regal look of a deep green wedding.
