Our California Dream – Behind the Scenes of our Campaign Shoot

We wanted our new campaign to be different, romantic and full of light. So, when Jen Huang agreed to shoot it, we hopped on the next flight to California!  Santa Barbara was the perfect backdrop for our 2014 Empress Collection.  I think we are still in awe of the beauty of it all.   Every detail was captured beautifully, from the sparkle of the tulle, stunning lace straps, to the delicate embroidery.   Our model Amy enjoyed herself!  Thank you for one of the most memorable day ever!  We could not have done it without all of you!   For more information on our amazing team feel free to visit their websites.  Jen Huang Photography| Jess Wilcox hair & makeup | Flowers by Maria | Amy Holt –...

Or how about one of these cozy cover ups from Etsy?Dare to copy a Princess? The Duchess of Cambridge warmed up on her wedding day in an angora bolero.When surrounded by snow, try a wedding with shades of white. The elegance of the monochromatic palate can only be enhanced by a little sparkle. This grand tablescape is perfectly executed! The sparkle of the centerpieces is a fabulous compliment to the sparkle of Indira!    And who can resist a great shoe? Bring in the sparkle on your feet as well!   So embrace the cold weather, the falling snow – and of course, that special person who keeps you warm all winter long!  Have fun with the photography and capture each precious moment!Then head inside to warm up with your guests with a hot cocoa bar where you and your guest can warm up!
