Hello everyone! Today on Once Upon a Gown, we are sharing one of our bride’s beautiful wedding in Italy at Lake Como. Prepare yourself, these photos are drop dead gorgeous! You may just find yourself booking your next trip to Italy after seeing their wedding. Christa and Nathan tied the knot at Villa Balbianello in Lake Como, Italy. As you can see, Christa was absolutely breathtaking in her Martina Liana wedding dress. Christa wore a Bellagio crepe gown with lace detailing the bodice down through the hips and has a lace scallop hem. This gown did feature a cameo back detail but Christa opted to remove it and make it an open keyhole back, which made for a beautiful statement in these photos. We definitely think Christa looked romantic, sexy and glamorous on her big day!

It’s Wedding Wednesday and today on Once Upon a Gown we are featuring our lovely bride Dana who looked absolutely stunning in her Essense of Australia gown. Dana wore a fit and flare wedding dress that featured vintage pearl beading that cascaded down the gown as well as intricate lace patterns which included that gorgeous back detail. We also love how Dana wore her hair down in beautiful curls and swept to one side so you could see that unique lace accent on the back. We just adore the romantic shots between Dana and Zach at the breathtaking venue, Stone Crest. Best wishes to the new Mr. & Mrs.!!!

Since Summer is coming to an end, we thought we would say good bye to the hot summer days with this awesome Mexico wedding! Our bride Stephanie and her fiance Ben tied the knot in Punta Mita, Mexico on May 26th. Oh my goodness these photos make us want to fly down there and lay out on the sandy beaches with a nice tropical drink while watching those beautiful waves. We love destination weddings, and we adore how this one was completed with sombrero hats and maracas. Stephanie looked absolutely gorgeous her in Martina Liana wedding gown that was just perfect for the beach! Her wedding gown has a boho vibe to it with its bold lace pattern and featuring a plunging v-neckline, deep side cutouts, and a strappy back detail. Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Booker!
