beautiful bhldn wedding dresses 2015, spring II collection: a day in the sun!

BHLDN is one of my biggest wedding crushes! I just adore everything they sell. From the most exquisite wedding dresses, delicately pretty capes and cover ups, to super pretty dancing shoes, chic bridal accessories and even stylish wedding decor! There is so much to love.

So naturally, when their 2015 Spring II editorial popped up in my inbox, I couldn’t wait to have a little swoon. Showcasing 8 new bridal gowns as well as their gorgeous accessories, this post is the perfect way to end your working week.

Just don’t get caught drooling by the boss ;)

There’s something about California. Its mix of glamour and ease. Its incomparable views. A fondness for big, once-in-a-lifetime love stories.

This West Coast wanderlust inspired BHLDN to spend “A Day in the Sun” shooting our Spring II collection at one of the most beautiful and glamorous locations in the Golden State.

Built in the 1920’s, the Villa Sophia was once home to James Whale, director of cult-films like Frankenstein and Remember Last Night.

With its lush gardens, poolside greenery and spectacular views of the downtown Los Angeles skyline, the Villa echoes the Old Hollywood feel of our Spring II collection.

It provided the perfect backdrop for model Alejandra Alonso to play, lounge and pose in our stunning new gowns and wedding accessories. Alejandra was the ideal model for this shoot as she perfectly captures the essence of grace, sophistication, confidence and femininity possessed by the screen sirens of the 1950’s and 60’s. From Marilyn Monroe to Grace Kelly, Brigitte Bardot and Sophia Loren, the elegance of such icons radiates from her bright smile and overall effortless beauty.

Shot by photographer Signe Vilstrup, the resulting imagery features 8 new wedding gowns that steal the show with extra fine lace, intricate beading and unique back details. Enhancing the glamorous nature of the shoot are delicate wedding headpieces, glistening bridal jewelry, and breathtaking cover-ups that are perfect for taking any gown from day to night.
