Roxane + Pierre Destination Wedding Inspiration
Roxane + Pierre’s Belgium wedding took our breath away, what more when it was held at the picturesque La Ferme du Chateau! The two pilots met in Qatar, fell in love and the rest is up in the skies. We love the little aviation inspired details that were scattered throughout the wedding, as well as the mix of blush, beige, mint green and ivory colors for a romantic and timeless touch. Not only were we so honored that Roxane chose to wear our Bella Belle wedding shoes for her big day, she wore two of our lovely designs, Belle a 3D floral chiffon design wedding bootie by Joy Proctor and Paloma, an ivory T Strap floral beaded wedding heel, to match with her gorgeous Lazaro heart shape neckline wedding dress. Their love and journey is definitely written in the skies.

Lauren + Mohammed Romantic Classic Wedding
This was a wedding that unquestionably made our heart burst with so much emotion and joy from the way Mohammed looked at Lauren during their first look. The images that was captured by Elizabeth Fogarty truly brought out the love and adoration that Lauren + Mohammed have for one another. The classic wedding was held at the elegant Meridian House in DC with an Italian style garden for their photoshoot. Given the elegance of the venue, colors of ivory, cream, vine, midnight blue and candles created a timeless and simple look that was anything but dull. For the wedding, we love Lauren’s choice of being comfortable with Bella Belle floral beaded embroidered wedding flat, Adora that paired perfectly with her Amsale wedding dress. Now, excuse us while we continue to marvel at their love for each other.

Deborah + Elton Feminine Wedding Inspiration
Deborah + Elton’s Spring Texas wedding was one that played with shades of pink and white hues that filled the entire laidback barn reception in Chandelier Grove, making this one of our favorite wedding decors of 2017. Paying homage to their Chinese heritage, they served guests with some delicious Peking Duck and an intricate French inspired Macaron cake. We love Deborah’s long sleeve floral and tulle feminine Hayley Paige wedding dress paired with our bestseller ivory crystal embellished wedding heels, Florence that matched perfectly together. Deborah’s wedding was certainly one for the books for the rays of colors and magnificent feminine details.

Noelle + Corey Elegant Wedding Inspiration
We adore the whimsical fairy tale garden wedding that Noelle + Corey had. Think lush green, soft dusty blue and laidback wood, creating a simple yet extremely elegant wedding. Noelle’s wedding dress was stunning but anything but traditional with the soft dusty blue Hayley Paige ballgown and a jeweled belt, matching her reception and décor detail color scheme. Adding that to the mix was Bella Belle’s Florence whose crystal details complemented Noelle’s top from her wedding attire. This wedding was definitely one that kept it simple but was rich in elegance and timelessness.

Kirstin + Dustin Outdoor Wedding Inspiration
There’s something about how natural and romantic Kirstin + Dustin wedding was, as captured beautifully by Amanda Watson Photography. Filled with love from their loved ones and for each other, Amanda captured all the emotions effortlessly with the amounts of natural lighting outside and inside the reception hall. Soft blush and ivory color palettes with modern touches, greenery and a hint of rustic elegance created a gorgeous looking décor where all the different elements worked together perfectly. To top it off, the happy couple drove off in a vintage green car that was totally Instagrammable.
