Your wedding destination could be as close as the park down the street or half way across the world. Wherever you pick for your backdrop, finding the gown to compliment is part of the fun. Our team of photography and beauty profs set out to find a locale conducive to handling several destination ideas: An Italianate villa with a country meadow and the area surrounding it full of wooded pathways.  St. Vincent's School in San Rafael, California has it all. In the header photos a silk chiffon and Chantilly lace dress with a full skirt is the perfect match for a villa by the sea. Below: a fitted silk taffeta sheath and organza train pair up for a country-inspired wedding . . .

Classic Grace Kelly chic goes just about anywhere including this vineyard-like setting

Costume-inspired gowns are always lovely.  This one conjours images of Natasha from War and Peace.  Silk chiffon and Chantilly lace with a brocade belt . . . .

Elegance is in the line and the details of these gowns. Good use of light in the photographs!
