When you think of timeless elegance and iconic style, who comes to mind? Top of mind for us would have to be Grace Kelly and Jackie O. We know we’re not alone, because the amazingly creative team at Aisle Society had just the same idea! For this dreamy styled shoot, they featured the inspiring designs of Oleg Cassini’s new bridesmaid collection, created just for David’s Bridal. These chic silhouettes and designs truly were the stars of the show. From the dreamy pale pink lace to the sophisticated silhouettes, it was hard for us to pick just one favorite. With breath-taking cathedral veils and the perfect red lip, the brides showcased a timeless elegance that would have made Grace proud! This Grace Kelly inspired shoot couldn’t be more up our alley! We’re in love.
The teams at Storyboard Wedding and Glamour & Grace created a romantic table for two, complete with the most gorgeous sweetheart settee for the newlyweds. For the tablescape, they took their inspiration straight from Grace Kelly herself in a scene from High Society. As the perfect nautical touch and nod to the film, the highlight of the decor is the model boat, floating on a bed of greenery, with “Darling, let’s be adventurers” in calligraphy adorning the sail. Heirloom glassware and silverware add to the chic timelessness, while hand-lettered mussel place cards give an added touch of whimsy.
Capping the celebration was a retro caravan bar. It featured scrumptious champagne accouterment selections like lush blackberries, fragrant rosemary and a dash of pear juice. The caravan served as the perfect bridge to yesteryear while showcasing modern amenities and stylings. We can’t rave enough about how perfectly Nikki Santerre Photography documented the day. She captured all of the pretty on both film and digital.
Need to make these gowns your own? Don’t worry! Your gals can be dressed to the nines in Oleg Cassini’s new and exclusive collection for David’s Bridal. Although Oleg Cassini is no longer with us, his eye for style and design lives on in this stunning collection. The opulence timelessness of Oleg Cassini is reflected in these regal designs featuring botanical embroidery, lace appliqués, beaded belts, and more. They would make for the perfect mix and match dresses for all of your maids!
