New York Bridal Fashion Week is at an end, and we are left in awe of all the stunning new wedding gowns and bridesmaids’ dresses that graced the runway. We shared some of our favorite designs from bridal designers like Monique Lhuillier, Reem Acra, Hayley Paige, Justin Alexander, Austin Scarlett and Enaura on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook! Some of our favorite trends seen on the runway this season were off-the-shoulder necklines, ultra plunging necklines, ballerina-esq silhouettes and botanical-inspired details (all shown above!). If you missed our coverage, follow us on any of these social media accounts and have fun browsing through all of our favorite looks, soon to be available at Bella Rose Bridal, BeLoved Bridal Boutique, Chantilly Couture, J.J. Kelly Bridal Salon, Meg Guess Couture, Moliere Bridal, Prescott Bridal, Prim and The Bridal Boutique. We can’t wait to share more from the new collections with you over the next few months! Cheers!

Our Locale in Bloom editorials are quickly becoming some of our favorites! What could be better than pairing the floral talent of Anthousai Floral Design with a few of the most gorgeous settings at The Golf Club of Oklahoma? Because we’re obsessed with the grandiose of this venue, it was easy to highlight the architectural features that make The Golf Club of Oklahoma so special, including their statement outdoor staircase, grand fireplace and lush outdoor setting. Dodging thunderstorms and racing the sunset did not stop the Anthousai team as they created these blooming vignettes! Coupled with a few statement pieces from Party Pro Rents (i.e. that gorgeous ceremony arch and chairs), we were smitten with the outcome of this shoot captured perfectly by Katie Hadley Photography! Enjoy!

Alex and Mike’s love story started in Orlando, moved throughout the country with visits in South Carolina and Oklahoma, and finally turned into life long love with a proposal in Oklahoma City and a summer wedding in Tulsa. Their classic Tulsa ballroom wedding planned by The Mayo Event + Design at The Mayo Hotel brought the romance, class and elegance with gorgeous florals by The French Bouquet in blush and champagne tones and incredible decor from Party Pro Rents and lighting from Empire Event Lighting & Design. Alex looked stunning in her lace Monique Lhuillier gown from J.J. Kelly Bridal Salon carrying a soft pink bouquet. Check out all the pretty details caught by Kristen Edwards Photography below!

About the Design
The one very special technique I used for this cake is the stringwork piping called Australian Extension Stringwork. There are two types of Australian Stringwork, bridged and bridgeless. The method I used in this cake is the bridgeless stringwork that shows one part of the strings to look and actually suspended in air. The strings in the other method (bridged) will be attached to another object on the cake and not suspended in air. I love how white and gold go in harmony. The white is wedding-y and the gold just adds a certain richness to the cake. I always have a passion for anything Baroque or anything intricate, French and Italian, elaborate, lavish and gilded.

Words of Wisdom
My advice for brides will be book early, tweak the design of the cake in the picture you bring or show me. It needs to be YOUR wedding cake. Be wise with your budget. The two things people tend to remember from your wedding is your wedding dress and your wedding cake!
