"Getting Ready" Bridal Pics

You have your hair and makeup team on site, pampering you and your bridesmaids. You're laughing, excited and anxiously anticipating that moment of the first time your Groom sees you. Typically, the photographer arrives on location when some of your bridesmaids hair and makeup is complete and they are finishing your own look. What are you all wearing? How will the photographer capture this moment? Coordinating your robes or coverups is a great idea!

  1. IT'S PRACTICAL: Hair and Makeup Professionals want you wearing something that is easy to get in and out of, so you won't mess up that perfect look.
  2. IT'S MODEST: These are memories and photos you'll cherish for a long time and want to share with your friends and family. Keep that cleavage tastefully covered.
  3. IT'S STYLE: It just looks sooooo good! 

THE SWEETHEART ROBE

This delicate whisper-soft robe is crafted with an easy, fluid and drape-y fit. It features finespun lace, dolman sleeves and a tie at the waist. The sash is detachable and excludes belt loops to allow for various looks and styling including a loose, low slung belt or cinched tightly as the waist. It’s a pretty piece for lounging and getting ready.

Modest Swimsuits

I do a lot of research on Instagram to stay ahead on trends and styles and stumbled on Beverly Swimwear! I'm thrilled to share with you these adorable gowns for those of you wanting a suite that isn't overly showy!

Growing up in San Diego I’ve spent a large part of my life in swimsuits. Like everyone else I always struggled to find modest swimsuits that I loved and that I could also afford. I knew I could help solve this problem not only for myself, but also for the many others that are searching for cute modest swimwear.

Once I graduated I started a new venture by creating my own business, Beverly Swimwear, an online shop selling cute modest swimwear, giving people more options of styles at a reasonable price.

The Design

Custom wedding design by Ira + lucy
 

Sammie shared with me a love for moody jewel tones and wanted to be sure it didn't feel too "girly" or too "country rustic". We focused on giving some boho vibes and playing up the jewel tones with a softer blush hue in the mix to add some depth to the palette. Pheasant feathers were a must for Sammie and Just So. Event Floral did a beautiful job incorporating them into the Bridal bouquet and Groom's boutonnière. I pulled away from a country vibe by adding a dramatic textured black and white print linen, from La Tavola Fine Linen, for the large head table. Adding vintage brown bottles, brass candlesticks with black tapers, gold geo shapes, air plants and ferns helped create a WOW focal point. Last minute, I decided to surprise Sammie with stunning calligraphy place cards from Sarah Pearl Studio. I requested them on black paper with torn edges and white text to add to that edgier vibe I wanted. 

Authentic Mexican Equipale chairs made for the perfect Bride + Groom special seating and after dinner we pulled one out for the garter toss! I'm so excited about these new chairs now a part of our rental collection! The Honey Harvest Rattan Chargers pulled in the warm wood hues  seen in the chairs, the brick backdrop and flooring.

Custom Projects

Sammie is going to school full time for nursing and truly, just didn't have the time or capacity to plan a wedding. Not to mention, just a few months before the wedding, her original venue canceled all their booked weddings, so we had to scramble to move the wedding to a new venue. At that point Sammie gave me full rein and told me to just take total creative and logistic control and pull her wedding together. It was pretty incredible to be able to have so much creative freedom and then get to surprise Sammie and Beau with all the little details we planned for them. The week of the wedding Sammie and her Mom wrote me in a panic that they forgot about a ring bearer pillow! So, I chatted with Kara, the florist and we put our minds together and I created the ring pillow and she made the flower girl baskets to match!

I’ve just been crying since last night and still can’t stop. I am in absolute awe. Thank you just does not do it. I’m overwhelmed with gratitude... I don’t have the words to thank you. That wedding was something out of my wildest dreams. You guys are miracle workers. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”
— Bride, Sammie

This was one of those "get you in the feels" weddings and couple. When Sammie and I first met in person there was an immediate connection, one of those God moments where you know you were brought into one another's lives for a bigger purpose. I won't got into the specifics, as it's personal for both Sammie and I, and we don't need to get too weepy eyed in our blog, but I'll forever feel connected to Sammie and giving her her dream wedding was a joy. I know all the vendors went above and beyond to love on this couple and I couldn't be more proud of our team and showing why we do what we do! To bless others! Love you so much Sammie! xoxo
