brides-may-cover-final

When you see the new issue of Brides (on newsstands April 24th) you might notice some changes. From the logo to the last page, Brides has a brand new look and I’m head over heels in love with it! It’s the first issue under new editor in chief Anne Fulenwider and I just love their new look. With a fashion shoot inspired by Degas’ ballerinas, bouquets that channel the spirit of style icons like Audrey Hepburn and Debbie Harry, and fun new cocktail ideas, it’s going to be a great issue! We are sharing one of the three covers that they are debuting with the new look and a few pages from a GORG fashion spread of pastel gowns in green, pink, and blue hues that has everyone rethinking a white dress.

The spreads above are from the May 2012 fashion feature, Pale Fire. The piece was photographed by Sandra Freij and produced by Rachel Leonard and shot at Academy Mansion. The top page features a nude-over-purple silk-tulle draped gown with a corset bodice and full skirt by Samuelle Couture ($8,500) and Gold d’Orsay sandals by Ann Taylor ($128). The bottom page features an ice blue mousseline V-neck gown with raw-edge layered detail and cross-hatch embroidery by J. Mendel ($6,450). The issue will be available for download on April 17th and hits newsstands on the 24th.

A Sweet Musical Engagement Session: Jonna + Lee

piano engagement session

Jonna + Lee met while filming his music video for Sweet Serendipity – how adorably sweet is that! And what a cool thing to share with their kids some day! Since their relationship all started around music – and Lee is a musician (you might recognize him from American Idol) – Jonna came up with the idea of bringing a piano along for their shoot. So perfect for them. And they were total troopers helping move it from location to location throughout the shoot – way to go you guys! I also love that they included their adorable golden retriever puppy (Bear) in their photos. Congrats to Jonna + Lee and thanks to Marianne Wilson Photography for sharing the gorgeous photos!

Platinum Guild International

platinum-rings

Let’s talk wedding rings! The most important piece of jewelry you’ll own and wear everyday for the rest of your life. I still remember that for the first month of being engaged I couldn’t stop staring at my ring. :) Well, there is good news for those of you looking at rings thanks to our friends at the Platinum Guild International. They are the experts on platinum and since the price of gold per an ounce has gone up so much in the last year, platinum has actually become a very attainable option. That is great news since platinum is the most precious metal on the market!

Why Platinum?

Well, first, it is naturally white. That means it will never fade or change color or need to be re-plated — unlike white gold. Platinum’s pure color also means that it won’t cast any color onto the diamonds or colored gemstones it holds, allowing the stones to shine brighter than in any other setting. Platinum is also super dense which means that it holds up really well to everyday wear and doesn’t show scratches. And the reason I love platinum most? Platinum is the densest precious metal (40% denser than 18K gold, and 60% denser than 14 K gold) making it the securest setting for a diamond, ensuring that your stone will stay tightly held for a lifetime – really don’t want to worry about losing your diamond, right?!

For more information on why to choose platinum for your wedding rings (and to view some gorgeous rings!), be sure to check out the Platinum Guild International.
