Stephanie Booker ♥ Martina Liana

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!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday! It’s a beautiful day and it’s getting closer to the weekend. Today on Once Upon a Gown, we are sharing our bride Monica who is such a beauty. Monica and Randy tied the knot on May 4th at The Chicory in New Orleans; which used to be a coffee warehouse that has been transitioned into a wedding venue that has an old-world charm that includes exposed beams, brick walls and gas lanterns. We think this venue was the perfect backdrop for Monica’s Art Deco wedding. We also think Monica chose the perfect dress to shine and make a statement on her big day. She looked absolutely gorgeous in her Martina Liana gown that had a plunging V neckline and open back, sheer bodice, and was adorned with beading and lace. This wedding dress definitely ensures that all eyes are on the bride!

Valentine’s Day Photoshoot ♥ Martina Liana

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!

We are so excited to finally share these lovely photos from a Valentine’s Day photo shoot that took place at The Nest at Ruth Farms. Our Martina Liana wedding dress was the perfect dreamy and romantic piece for this shoot. This wedding dress has a soft tulle A-line skirt, a gorgeous beaded lace bodice with dainty off the shoulder straps. Those fairy tale shots of the back of the dress and going up the stairs are just simply breathtaking! We just love the pops of color in this shoot which looked absolutely amazing with this venue. Also, we can’t forget about the “cherry” on top of this shoot… the sugar… that scrumptious cake, macaroons, and cookies. Yummy! Definitely wishing we had all of that to munch on for today, I mean that’s totally acceptable for today of all days, right?!

Carley Musser ♥ Martina Liana

Today is another Wedding Wednesday and we wanted to share one of our brides who has celebrated her one year anniversary this month. Our bride Carley looked simply stunning in her custom Martina Liana wedding dress. Her wedding dress actually consists of two pieces from the Martina Liana Separates line. Carley chose the Blake bodice design but loved the Jude lace so much more, so we ended up custom ordering the bodice to combine both of her loves. Her bodice was so romantic with the lace long sleeve with illusion and cascading buttons down the back. She matched this bodice with the crepe Sanja skirt for a clean finished look. Carley and Brent tied the knot at the beautiful White Sparrow Barn on January 7th, 2017. Congrats to this beautiful couple on their one year as Mr. & Mrs. Musser!
