What better way to ask your bestie to be a part of your wedding party besides champagne and custom champagne? Even better, get your bridesmaids' and maid of honor's names on their very own bottle and pair with your favorite pretty products. Giving these gifts out may be as fun as receiving one, especially if you get to share a glass of their bubbly. Cheers!
Party like Jay Gatsby with a vintage ’20s-style wedding. Nothing says glamour and class like champagne towers and old-fashioned cars. Stick with lots of gold, white, and black for an instant classy feel. Add in light shades of pink and blue, and the wedding will start to feel like you stepped back in time. Ask your bridesmaids to find inspiration in flapper-style dresses with beaded designs, and feather headpieces are so West Egg. Oh, and make sure your men are in suspenders and bow ties, old sport!
London-based designer Catherine Deane is a magician with fabric. After traveling the world, Deane started her bridal line in 2005 and ever since has been striving to create modern designs inspired by traditional techniques she observed during her nomadic travels. Her dresses are fresh and elegant with a touch of laid back bohemian. Our gown of the week, the Charlotte, has a vintage feel. It is streamlined and easy to wear yet completely decadent. The scallop-lace edge neckline speaks to the art nouveau era, while the silhouette is completely timeless.
Trina and Dalip had been connected since childhood through a family friend and after eight years of dating, Dalip proposed on the steps of the Reims Cathedral in the Champagne Region in France. The couple wed two years later on a stormy March 1st, the anniversary or their first date ten years prior, at Jacuzzi Family Vineyards in Sonoma, California. They combined Sikh and Hindu ceremonies, followed by a reception where guests toasted with the very same champagne, which Dalip flew in, from the day of their engagement in Reims.
Christine Cater's event and floral design set against the backdrop of Carmel Valley Ranch is absolute magic, but throw in Carlie Statsky to capture the day, and we've got a full-blown swoon-fest on our hands. This inspiration shoot is everything you want from a California wedding and then some. Cater's wildly unique and romantic ceremony features a hand-painted, art deco–inspired aisle runner, ombré flowers, ghost chairs, and a circular ceremony altar made of soft golden pampas grass. The rustic wooden table set against the Carmel Valley landscape is home to a vibrant centerpiece and acrylic menus that feature gold calligraphy. Enter the bride, in an elegant, illusion-back Amsale wedding gown from Haute Bride paired with teal Christian Louboutin shoes, and our hearts are racing. We trust yours will, too.

The wedding world is saturated with gorgeous imagery and photo shoots galore, inspiring brides to make daring choices on their wedding day. But sometimes, we just like to come across an image so authentic and real that it gives us goosebumps. A moment, captured by an extraordinary photographer, that is one-of-a-kind. This image is all of that for us. It's love, it's friendship, it's romance, and all the other pieces are there, as well: stunning location, gorgeous gown, perfect pose, pretty bouquet, etcetera. And those things are great, but it is the moment, pure happiness frozen in time, that really tugs on our heart strings.
