Our real bride Natalie knew it was the one…
After falling in love with the Stella gown by designer Leanne Marshall, Natalie came to Love and Lace Bridal to see if it was the one. Natalie was fairly certain this was the dress, but she did try on “one other dress for good measure.” But none compared. “I instantly knew that it was perfect for me. Light and ethereal, simple and elegant, no cliche bridal flourishes, and truly a rare find.”
When Natalie sent us these incredible pictures (seriously, we’re obsessed), by photographer Hannah Costello we couldn’t wait to share! The whole wedding looked so down to earth and elegant. Truly spectacular. And you can tell they had a blast!
Even though we weren’t present at their wedding, we could always feel the love from Natalie and how she felt about her fiancé. Their energy and comfortability with each other are definitely present in these pictures and we couldn’t be happier for them both!
The Stella gown is so simple and soft. (We oooed and awed over the Stella gown in this post here too.) It has this graceful nature that doesn’t need lace or sparkle. You certainly can pair it with a jeweled belt or a lace bolero, but we love how simple Natalie chose it to be.
And beside her man, in his crisp tux and bowtie, they fit perfectly.
From inside to out, this wedding and the theme of the pictures taken by Hannah Costello, emits that old world romance we can’t get enough of. The feeling is magnetic, just like the love between them. Very special indeed!
Another plus about the Stella gown? That low back and skinny straps!
From the bride: “The bodice was flattering, and the skirt could lay flat, but also become dramatic with any movement – perfect for dancing and floating around on my wedding day! The light silk chiffon, layered skirt pieces, and train gave the dress a whimsical style that was fun to sashay around in.”
