Kirstie Kelly Couture

Last week we went to visit the beautiful showroom of Kirstie Kelly with Kristen Maple of Chris and Kristen Fine Art Photogarphy to choose some of her amazing dresses to showcase for an upcoming shoot that we are planning at Cal-a-Vie (the venue itself deserves a whole other post all to itself!) Kirstie’s gowns are so beautiful, classic and elegant…I was wishing that it was my turn to get married again! They showed us all around and told us all about their gorgeous dresses…the most amazing thing is that they can totally customize each dress to be exactly what you are looking for by changing little things here and there to be just perfect for each individual bride.  They have a beautiful collection of Bridesmaids dresses as well, that again, are totally customizable and come with a full service assistant (the amazing Sarah) who will organize and communicate all of the details with your lovely Bridesmaids, totally taking the stress of off the Bride.  If you are a Bride looking for a full service PHENOMENAL  experience, you must pay this place a visit!

First off how incredibly fabulous are those Christian Louboutin shoes?

Yes, they are quite unique along with the rest of this DIY wedding that My Bride Story shared with us. This is one of those weddings where it actually rained, and a few changes were made, but overall everything turned out to be perfect. Filled with the most exquisite DIY details. That were all done by the bride. This is sure to be one of those weddings you will look back on for a few ideas.

Hanna + Randy wanted a wedding that was upbeat yet comfortable, and infused multiple colors and a plethora of circle patterns that could bring some fun, funk, and style! Love it. :) They also wanted great food and had to incorporate their love for coffee with a coffee bar and signature drinks. They selected the The Casino San Clemente as their venue and the outdoor space was a perfect setting for their lovely ceremony. Lindye Galloway Events helped Hanna + Randy create a day that was uniquely them while Emily Blake Photography captured it all on film. Congrats to Hanna + Randy!
