Elise Hameau and I collaborated on a beautiful shoot in the rain this year and it was absolutely magical. To be honest, we didn't anticipate a dreary day in Los Angeles for this shoot, given that LA has more than 300 days of sunshine throughout the year. But in the end this was the perfect kind of setting for Elise's beautiful french wedding gowns. It reminds you a little of Paris, doesn't it? Elise did bring these dresses all the way from her cute little shop in Paris, after all. There is so much detail in all the dresses, like the delicate lace woven in between tulle and silk buttons, or the criss-cross straps in the back. A truly bohemian look, I think it fits any girl who loves to have a DIY wedding and is constantly perusing Green Wedding Shoes. We couldn't have put these beautiful elements together without a team of highly dedicated and incredibly talented wedding professionals: thank you to Hannah with Milieu Florals, along with the ladies at Theresa Huang Hair and Makeup Design, and lastly but not least, the amazing Kathy Banner with the long and magical veil at The Veiled Beauty.
