Whimsical Wedding Dresses by Ivy & Aster

I’m SO excited to help announce a brand new line of wedding dresses today! The line is called Ivy & Aster + they are all about capturing the look of fun + romance. The silhouettes are refined + the fabrics are fanciful.  Everything is about the drape, flow + sweetness. They love chiffon flowers, rows of ruffles, a velvety swiss dot, essentially anything that is one part sweet + one part sass! :) They are all about “celebrating sweet innocence.” I love their mix of vintage love with modern trends. They make me wish I had a reason to wear one of these lovelies! Ivy & Aster dresses are available at the Lovely Bride in NYC + in 22 stores across the country. And now, the most beautiful photos from one of my most favorite photographers, Elizabeth Messina.

So romantic + fun! I just love the dresses and can’t stop staring at the photos. What do you guys think? Do you have a favorite? I love the long one with the velvet swiss dots (Sweet Pea – if you look at the dress name on their site) – although also a fan of that last short one right above (Sweet Dreams). Big thanks to the creative minds behind this for letting me share these GORGEOUS photos with you all today + be sure to check out Ivy & Aster for more loveliness.
