Get some ice water ready, fam, because this next wedding is spicy! Introducing Elizabeth & James, a #dgcouple who totally turned up the dial on their New Years weekend wedding day. Their winter wedding was moody, dark, and S E X Y - we were fanning ourselves the whole time! Yet the entire wedding was classic, timeless, and entirely church-appropriate. Check out these STUNNING images courtesy of Justin Casanova. Like, for real Justin - stunning!
We are heels-over-head in love with Elizabeth in Aston, a Sottero & Midgley crepe down featuring a dramatic illusion-beaded back, elegant sleeves, a high neck, & flowing train. She's total proof that you can be fully covered and still be totally sexy. This gorgeous fabric drapes the natural silhouette, allowing Elizabeth's body to be the true focus! Add in some dramatic beaded embellishments and this dress was the perfect fit for their romantic, moody affair.
We love Elizabeth's overall wedding day look - she kept her makeup dramatic, yet classic, with a bold, dark lip that matches the dark crimsons in her color palette. Her glamorous Old Hollywood hair was a perfect compliment to her wedding gown. The overall vibe of the wedding was romantic, yet dark, and her fatally beautiful look was to die for! (See what we did there?)
For James & his groomsmen, we wanted to make sure the style fit the classic glamour that Elizabeth was looking for. They opted for a classic steel grey suit - dark enough to fit the mood, but a softer contrast than a traditional black tux. They kept their accents neutral and allowed the bright crimson roses to be the accent of color! We're also a little biased, but love a good group in bowties, don't ya think?
We cannot get over how fabulously in love Elizabeth and James look in all their photos. Justin Casanova did an astounding job capturing their day in all of its moody, lovely glory. This is a perfect example of how's it's possible to have a seductively dark and moody wedding without having it in October. The cool winter air and atmosphere added an extra layer of drama to their day!
Congratulations to you, Elizabeth & James! We are so thankful you chose Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. We truly loved getting to style you; your wedding will go down as one of our favorites, truly! We wish you both a lifetime of love, laughter, & happiness. Cheers to the Leikers!
