Sometimes your wedding plans the dress and sometimes your dress plans the wedding... the trick is to decide which one matters more to you! For us, the inspiration for this shoot came first, second, third, and always from the gorgeous Studio Levana gowns that Kaiulani shows to perfection against the backdrop of old-world grandeur in the Batcheller Mansion Inn.
Showcasing two completely different silhouettes from Studio Levana’s Curvy Enchanting line, we love how floaty chiffon flirts with showing a little bit of leg or sinuous lace hugs your body in all the right places. But believe it or not, the best part of these gowns isn’t even what you see here on the page. Each Studio Levana gown comes with your foundation garment already built in for a no fuss, no worries wedding day!
competing for attention. And we know what you’re thinking: those are BIG earrings; how can they possibly not compete?! But the delicate porcelain flowers and detail work, on the House of Mac and Zoe earrings, are soft enough to blend seamlessly with the look -while statement enough to stand up to the dress itself and not get lost! Contrary to the current trend for soft and even moody colors, we decided these flirty and sensuous gowns deserved bright, vibrant florals that make a statement, because when you’ve got it, flaunt it! (And these gowns have definitely got that undefinable “it”!!)
