Carines Bridal Atelier Logo your aisle is our runway

Today we visited two of our designers on our bridal market tour and each one offered us a little something different. Both Marchesa and Jenny Lee went back to their basics, Marchesa revamped their take on embroidery and draping while Jenny Lee redefined her take on structure. Marchesa featured beautifully embroidered Chantilly lace and Jenny Lee played with the idea of exposed boning and applique details…

Our bride Maddie Kearns looked so stunning in her Rivini gown we couldn’t help but share! She paired her gown with a lace Jenny Lee bolero and heirloom family veil. Maddie and her husband Sean were married at the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament and held their reception at the Columbia Country Club. Photos courtesy of Rodney Bailey Photojournalism.

Congratulations to Maddie and Sean!!!
