My Favorite Wedding Fashion Moments of 2010

Today I’m sharing some of my favorite wedding fashion details and moments from the past year. There were so many gorgeous dresses, fun bow ties, vintage touches and fantastic shoes! Let’s take a look…Top Wedding Fashion of 2010

black and white ribbon wedding dress

I fell in love with this bride’s dress she designed and then had made by Monaco Couture – and the groom had a bowtie to match her stripes! Photographed by Erin Hearts Court and you can see the entire wedding here.

mother made wedding dress

This sweet bride’s dress was made by her mom! So pretty and and love the chunky necklace the bride made too. Photographed by Jill Thomas, you can see the entire wedding here.

wedding shoes with hearts

As you may have guessed, I’m always a fan of fun gorgeous shoes. :) Love the Vivienne Westwood shoes from this wedding photographed by Leo Patrone. Grooms with socks to match their bride? Always a YES in my book! Photo on the right by Elizabeth Messina from this wedding.

wedding hairpieces

I think we all fell in love with the bridesmaids hair pieces the bride made from this adorable wedding photographed by Benj and Maddie Haisch.

We saw some of the prettiest vintage wedding dresses! Adore this one on the left from Unique Vintage photographed by Jessica Claire. And this one from Mill Crest Vintage photographed by Sarah Yates for our 500 Days of Summer shoot was so pretty!

And the glamourous dress by Temperley London we used for our Southern Wedding Shoot was TO DIE FOR. I still dream about that dress. :) Photographed by Stephanie Williams.

And those gorgeous hairpieces! Love the top piece by Mignonne Handmade and that lovely couple from this shoot photographed by Sloan Photographers. The gorgeous bride (who is also a fashion designer) from the bottom photos MADE her wedding dress from the dress both her mother and grandmother wore and also made her headpiece.
