As we usher in the long and busy weekend ahead, we thought we’d bring you something extra special for Fashion Friday. Ever since Inbal Dror’s designs hit the international scene, brides from all over the world have fallen madly in love with the incredible dresses that redefined what wedding gowns could look like. With figure-hugging silhouettes, plunging necklines, and sheer layers adorned with intricate embellishments, it’s really not difficult to see why. So without further ado, here’s Inbal Dror’s latest collection set against the concrete jungle that is New York City. Enjoy!
Do you believe in matches made in Heaven? After today’s wedding by Martin Aesthetics, you probably will! Peter is a Canadian painter and Thierry is obsessed with Eastern metaphysics. If there was any love story decreed by fate, I’d say it’s this one. You can tell from the very first picture that you’re in for something different, striking, and every kind of wonderful! It can be tricky to look intensely and equally perfect in three different outfits, but Thierry wears each piece gorgeously without batting an eyelash. First, she appears as a picturesque bride adorned in traditional details by Koo Nam Wah‘s Qun Kwa, then a flower-crowned Rosa Clara queen, and lastly as an elegant lady in green. We are in love with these mismatched, deep hues of red, and the fun and relaxed vibe among the entire entourage. The entire affair is artsy, quirky, and just the thing to make our day divine!
If you loved yesterday’s feature, then you’re in for a another treat today as we get to continue our Irish castle dreaming with Erica and Matthew’s incredible wedding video by Story of Eve. It’s a completely different experience to see all the gorgeous details in motion especially while listening to one of the sweetest set of vows you’ll ever hear, so don’t be surprise if you find yourself hitting replay over and over again. Just make sure you have a box of tissues within reach!

We’ve all had our fair share of weddings that we’ve attended as guests. Even if it’s not really appropriate to pick favorites, we have to admit that some weddings just have that extra sprinkling of magic that put them a head above the rest. Today’s featured wedding is easily one of those rare types. Erica and Matthew’s unforgettable wedding in Adare Manor looked like it came straight out of a storybook. Erica was the most radiant bride in her elegant Vera Wang dress, while Matthew looked debonair in his classic black tux. But we’re really just getting started as this couple’s impeccable taste and thoughtfulness went into every little detail that made up this special day — from their meticulously-designed wedding crest and the custom calligraphy, to their walk down the aisle led by a bag-piper, to the premium whisky tasting bar and cocktails concocted by the couple, all the way to the romantic flowers and tall silver candelabras that adorned their reception hall that was reminiscent of the Great Hall at Hogwarts. It’s a good thing they had Brosnan Photographic behind the lens, so we get to ogle over all the amazing details for as long as we want. Slipping into dream mode in 3, 2, 1…
There are many different ways to capture the aura of a bride: that once in a lifetime, solemn but certain enchantment that envelopes someone who’s chosen forever with someone else. We think that Androidsinboots has found one beautiful way to capture that aura in Sham Shui Po of all places. We are led out of what we know to be the pretty side of Hong Kong and into bustling streets and marketplaces, as well as isolated rooftops in humdrum hours. Perhaps this is what spurs the most engaging factor of the photographs: the connection you can feel with each one, as though you were or had been there, carried along by our standout bride, who glows in a perfect dress by Olive Suite Weddings. Having such an angelic subject in such charmingly ordinary places leads us to recognize that these “ordinary” places are the ones to treasure most. Prepare your heart to meet a bride, and even our city, in a whole new way!
