Our delightful bride Stella, loves pink and anything that sparkles!  Well what our bride wants, our bride will get!

We used a total of eight layers of different fabric for her wedding dress. They were individually cut, draped, and picked-up to shape the fullness of her romantic blush pink skirt. Her sparkling jewel belt was custom designed and hand-sewn, stone by stone.

We used three different shades of pink to make the perfect dresses for her bridesmaids. The colors complemented the bride’s subtle pink dress perfectly, and the above-the-knee cut gave the wedding a lighthearted, delightful, feel. You can see more of Stella’s adorable, and extremely PINK! wedding here.

Hyun-Kyung was one of the most charming brides I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.  I absolutely loved every session I had with her. She always brought – and still does – such a cheerful energy to the studio and of course, she ended up looking flawless in her wedding dress.  Le Mariage for a blessed marriage.  The original French lace was used to wrap her beautiful silhouette.  The three-quarter length sleeves gave a timeless look to the whole picture.  The long toffee colored chiffon bridesmaids’ dresses definitely contributed to  the elegant loveliness.

There’s a first for everything! This time, our bride asked for something especially unique: a modern white wedding gown inspired by the traditional Indian dress!  After a couple of consultations and countless sketches, the bride found exactly what she dreamed of.

 Well, at least on paper for now. This sweetheart neckline gown with a sari-like sheer drape will definitely be one of a kind. :)

Last weekend we hosted a POP-UP SHOP of The Vintage Table Co., a Los Angeles-based vintage table rental company founded by Kathy Le Backes.  Kathy presented her collection beautifully and filled up our shop with charming flavors of vintage.  We had a lovely time joined with customers, friends and so many wonderful professionals in our industry.  Mimosas (yum!) were served in vintage Mason jars with delicious fruit and pastries.

The Vintage Table Co. is a specialty rental company offering mismatched vintage plates, glassware and flatware for your special event.  Each one-of-a-kind piece is hand-picked to make three unique collections: Vintage, Rustic, and Retro.  They create charming mismatched place settings for weddings, afternoon teas, luncheons, dinner parties and bridal or baby showers. The rentals are also available for photo shoots and TV/film set dressings.

In between the whites, ivories, and light champagnes, we love to add illuminating colors to our collection.  For Dami Moon, a beautiful and sweet sixteen-years old, and her 2011 Miss High-Teen Korea Contest on this Sunday, lovely Tiffany-blue is here in the shop.

Our 5’9” beauty wants an elegant and undulated tone that accentuates on the stage.  Two different colors of chiffon and organza are selected to create delicate but not dull vibes for the dress and four shades of Swarovski will be embroidered to luminosity of the dress.  With no doubt she will be walking on the stage like a fairytale princess!

ATELIER hosted our first bridal showcase, The PETITE WEDDING Show on August 26-27, 2011.  This event offered potential brides the firsthand opportunity to experience the new trend of our designs.  With color theme of {Green + Butter Yellow}, from the French laces to Swarovski satin belts and green feathers, five newly designed wedding gowns, three bridesmaids dresses and two flower girl mini dresses were displayed.  Also our dearest friends in the industry joined to create the complete look of the showcase.  We are so grateful for the vendors who were a part of this event and their efforts to make this happen.
