Real Bride: Anna Maria

Congrats to our stunning bride who got married two weeks ago in her Alyne wedding dress. We are in love with the modifications she made to her dress to make it her own. She added a sheer sleeve and a crystal champagne belt from Erin Cole. We wish them a lifetime of happiness!

A Couture Cake Inspired by Rivini

The little details truly do make a wedding, but the details have to be cohesive.  After our bride, Melinda, purchased Rivini Dari from our salon, she consulted with cake expert, The Sugar Suite. From there they created a custom cake just as personalized as her dress. The concept was to replicate the beaded sash worn on her lace dress. Looks like sugary sweet success to me!

Real Wedding: Blush & Ivory

Our bride, Katie, wears Alyne wedding dress with Rivini veil which turned out to be the perfect dreamy match to her whimsical wedding. Kate was such a down-to-earth bride, but still kept her eye on the little details. The photos were taken by Amalie Orrange. Oh and by the way… we have a shoot scheduled with her in June! 

We still can’t get over this flower girl dress!!! So precious! 

Real Bride: Ronnie
I want a marriage more beautiful than my wedding. 
The whole staff at Solutions Bridal has had great pleasure assisting Ronnie and Will with their wedding day. As Ronnie started planning her wedding, she also was in the midst of launching a successful wedding business known as RW Chocolate Fountains. As her business expanded to include favors, photo booths, and many other wedding day accessories; her own wedding date changed to accommodate more time. This gorgeous couple finally wed this past January and we couldn’t be more pleased that they finally got to celebrate their love for each other. Because you see, there love for each is over the moon high! We see all sorts of couples in the salon (to be honest), these two really have it! 
Ronnie wore a satin one-shoulder Marisa dress with modern accessories to pair. Their wedding took place at Ceviche.

Real Wedding with Splendid DIY

I have to admit, I’m not a fan of DIY Weddings. They often lead to much stress and look a little too on the homespun end for me. Rachel’s wedding though is an exception!  As a professional makeup artist in the industry, she was able to pull off a clear motif. Each and every one of her DIY pieces tell as story and bring her wedding day together full circle.  For this expert do-it-yourselfer our seamstress changed her dress neckline and added a custom keyhole. So not only was her wedding truly unique, her wedding dress was a one-of-a-kind.
