Did you see the gorgeous Tropical Inspired feature on Green Wedding Shoes yesterday? We were so honored to have one of our Shop Lovely dresses featured, and we absolutely love how it was styled! The Austin shortie is a vegan leather shift with floral lasercut details, and it’s perfect as a reception dress, rehearsal dinner dress, or even as the dress for your big day! Here are a few of our favorite photos showing off this sassy little number!
The ceremony dress they used was such a stunner and worked perfectly with all of the palm frond and pineapple details.
Love the idea of a Little White Dress? Ya, we do too! Here are some similar styles that we are totally digging for summer. And check out our section on Shop Lovely featuring the perfect white dresses for any occasion!

We love the gold antique dinnerware, the dreamy flow of lace and tulle, and giant blooming peonies.

This bridal inspiration shoot was an amazing collaboration between Lovely Philly owner Ivy, Amanda of Love Me Do Photography, and Sullivan Owen Floral and Event Design. Both the Carol Hannah Pemberley gown and Sarah Janks Daisy shined against rustic backdrops, paired with perfectly prepared florals. We love what a chameleon the model was, emanating different vibes in each of the styled looks. If you are a Philadelphia bride, not only should you visit Ivy and all of the girls at Lovely Philly, but you should also check out this amazing floral designer and photographer for your big day! We are smitten.

A big thanks to everyone who put in such detailed work on this wonderful shoot.
A few weeks ago Lovely Bride Philadelphia was the set of a super fun Bridal Beauty Lookbook shoot. Carina Romano of Love Me Do Photography and Aleksandra Ambrozy of Makeup By Aleksandra wanted to create some beautiful inspirational images showcasing stunning bridal makeup and hair as well as interesting jewelry and accessories. The results wowed us. Get ready for some serious pretty!
From Carina and Aleksandra:
The first look of the day was very romantic yet elegant; it featured a bright red lip and a neutral eye. The hair was styled in loose, polished waves. The model’s skin was primed with Mineral Primer and then evened out with a light application of Liquid Mineral Foundation. I used stippling brush to apply. Kelsey had this beautiful ivory skin tone, which I wanted only to enhance a bit with a Creme Blush in Taffeta lightly applied with fingertips. Her eyes were kept very neutral. I used the Shanghai Nights Eyeshadow Quad. I applied Bamboo and Cherry Blossom all over the lid and a very, very light accent of Beige-ing in the crease. Our model had naturally stunning, long eyelashes so I only had to curl them and apply a few coats of mascara. I really wanted to create a strong brow so I filled it out with a brow pencil in taupe. The fiery lips were accented with Vixen Lipstick. All makeup used was by Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics.
We though that this delicate headpiece by Untamed Petals would be perfect compliment for this look.
The second look was inspired by classic Hollywood movie stars. We swept her hair to the side and secured it with this stunning hair pin by Ti Adoro. The makeup was kept pretty much the same as the first look. We added a very thin winged out liquid eyeliner to give it more of an elegant look.
The last look we created was a bit more dramatic, while still keeping it very elegant and timeless. We did a smokey eye using the Shanghai Nights Eyeshadow Quad by Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics, using the Cherry Blossom all over the lid, then smoking it out with the Shitake and lining the eyes with a black pencil. Lost of mascara was a must for this look! Lips were accented by Smolder Lipstick by Youngblood as well. Model is also wearing a Mineral Primer, Liquid Mineral Foundation and Ultimate Concealer, all by Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics.
We swept the hair in a side messy low bun, which I think complimented this look perfectly! We accented it with this stunning hair pin by Untamed Petals.
Model was wearing this incredible stunning beaded dress Grace by Nicole Miller.
