Throwing it back to last year’s collection! We’re featuring a gown from the 2017 collection that wasn’t a particularly popular gown, but is definitely underrated! This is Ilana, a simple & sweet modern princess gown. She features a sweetheart neckline with illusion lace straps to create more of a V-neck style. The delicate corded lace bodice features a low V-back with a zipper and fabric buttons. Ilana has a beautiful full A-line tulle skirt covered with horsehair ribbon. This skirt is not a traditional princess ballgown, but gives more of a modern fairytale Snow White feel. This gown is shown in ivory, but is also available in white, champagne, blush, oyster, and our newest colour, mocha.
Jodene is such a romantic, sweet, simple gown, with beautiful details. She has been a popular gown from our 2018 collection, the brides love the non-traditional lace! The lace bodice has delicate spaghetti straps, a romantic modified sweetheart neckline, and a sexy low illusion lace back with strap details. The lace on the bodice drifts down the back of the gown to the stunning illusion lace train. The soft A-line skirt is a satin-jersey fabric that accentuates the hips and natural waist. The gown is finished with a zipper and fabric buttons. This lovely gown is perfect for an outdoor garden wedding. The greenery and florals will accent the non-traditional lace.
June has been one of our top five gowns from the 2018 collection, and we thought it was about time to write about her! This romantic ball gown has a lace bodice with a sexy, daring, deep V-neck. Intricate lace appliqués and scalloped eyelash trim accents add detail to this simple dress. The low illusion lace back also adds a romantic touch. The bodice gently flows into the voluminous ruffled tulle A-line skirt of horsehair ribbon that cascades over the gown. This dress is so stunning, it doesn’t even need an embellishment at the waist. Instead of a belt, try a hairpiece, like a comb or vine to add a bit of sparkle to your look.
There is no single definition of bohemian style, but it reflects more toward romance than glamour. It could be a flowing chiffon skirt and non-traditional lace bodice, an open back, cape, off the shoulder sleeves, or bell sleeves. Whatever your image, a bohemian bride is very natural and laid back, with an effortless style.
Bohemian bridal gowns have started coming into style more and more over the past couple of years. In the below collection, we feature one gown from our 2016 collection, four from our 2017 collection, and 5 from our 2018 collection. These ten gowns are our top bohemian styles. While there are only ten, many more of our gown are somewhere in between boho and glamour.

“When creating this dress I was going for a classic look and added the slit as a bit of a surprise. A dash of spontaneity. ”

A couple months ago, our good friend and amazing makeup artist, Nikole, reached out and asked if we would like to be part of a styled photo shoot in Kananaskis. We obviously said yes! We take any chance we get to work with local Calgarian vendors.
We met with Film & Photography and they chose to use the India gown from our 2017 collection for the shoot.
This past week we were featured on Rocky Mount Bride and we are so excited to share more of these lovely photos with you! (All thanks to Film & Forest Photography) So without further ado, here are our favourite photos from the shoot:

The lovely Jill gown, from our 2018 collection, has a simple and sweet vibe. The lattice lace gives it an innocent girly feel, while the non-traditional, ivy-inspired lace contrasts to give it a more modern sense. It features a lace bodice with a deep V-neck and illusion lace cap sleeves. Low illusion backs are a big trend right now, which is a popular aspect of Jill. The gown also has a simple A-line tulle skirt with a zipper and fabric buttons. Jill is shown in ivory but is also available in white, champagne, nude blush, oyster, and mocha.
Words from the designer:
“When I envisioned this gown, I imagined it as a fairytale gown with a modern twist. A wedding
dress Snow White would wear. The lace cap sleeves and the traditional tulle A-line skirt is what makes this a classic princess dress.”
