#Top10 of 2017 - Cambium Farms

Jessica. And Kyle are so sweet, and so perfect for each other!!! I really really really had a great time putting this vision together as Jessica’s Venue is Rustic but she wanted French Provance type look -with florals everywhere, greenery everywhere, romance everywhere,  and soft pastel colours everywhere !!!! It was so funny cause she’s like I want flowers, I want a HUGE bouquet and lots of texture. ( extra oomph on the big bouquet !!)   I’m like  I’ll take that as a challenge !!! I couldn’t wait as outdoor venues have so much to offer - nature, and nature is the best backdrop as far as I’m concerned. - Just look at the picture above I mean common !!!! All photography by the uber talented Jenn Kavanagh of  @ jennkavanagh  photography.   The ceremony was outside, and the weather couldn’t have been better ( even though it did drizzle for a bit - the heavens held up a bit for us) NOTHING WILL STOP THIS PARTY YOOOOO  As soft and romantic this wedding looked, the crew was super cool and hip and brought the house down like majorly !!!  Kyle actually asked for one thing and that is to have hot sauce as favors - so as I said it was a funny , good looking and hawwttt partyyyyyy.  So let’s cut to the chase, yes the bouquet was heavy, yes it was stunning, yet it was big, all about WHAT YOU want for your special day and what will are an IMPACT - this was a show stopper:

So now that we will enter the venue, I do want to show you and tell you the story behind the reveal. So of course the photographer asked for Jess to come by the venue and take a look while its empty of vendors and ready for the big party, take the whole thing in you know what I mean? So the story its kinda silly - as jess enters into the room, and literally breaks down - okay okay getting super emotional - I am in looking for the bathroom on the property lol ( we are on the farm after all ) but my team is seeing all this and retelling  this to me while I was so kicking my self in the foot lol. Anyway here is the pic of Jessica -she’s the cutest !

Designer Profile: Zuhair Murad

Zuhair Murad is a designer that is all around amazing, he not only is an amazing bridal designer but his ready to wear and couture collections are outstanding as well! He started designing in 1997, starting small and building a private client group first! Although he had always been interested in designing, as a child he recalled never letting a pen leave his hand because he always wanted to draw and explore designs! Zuhair showed his first couture designs at Haute Couture week in Paris in 2001, this gave him international coverage and more media spreading!! In 2005 Zuhair designed and showed his first ready to wear collection, it was to further expand his client base, the designs were simple yet aesthetically glamorous.

In 2012 Zuhair Murad moved his fashion house to an 11 story building in Gemmayze, in the hear of Beirut, this is not only offices but also houses some key designers, pattern makers, tailors and embroidery experts. In 2014 he finally incorporated the bridal section into his fashion house, this is where the wedding gowns are sold and displayed. Now bringing us to 2015 he has another office in Paris, that screams his style!!

The 2017 bridal collection caught my eye when I was looking through designers, the collection is stunning and has a ton of character! The lace and embroidery work on these are amazing and shows the skill of this brand! The colours are classic and amazing with the pearly white and off white. Truly amazing and a great idea of whats to come in 2017 bridal!

He is a designer that also creates bridal designs that are truly breathtaking! His passion for fashion started at a young age, His mother was a heavy influence on him always having fabric around and dress forms for her business! He did not start wanting to create his own clothes or be a designer until after he had already attained a degree in architecture, but after so long he found himself drawn back to what he had grown up with. Quickly Angel started his own fashion house that rose to fame in Latin America and then grew internationally fast after. There is now a company head quarter in New York City.

Biggest wedding dress tends to come: keep an eye open!!

Trends change all the time, they evolve and adapt to the times! Wedding dress trends also change, not at such a rapid pace but still changing with every season that new brands and designers come up with different ideas. There are always going to be timeless lines and collecting that have key styles, but you can be sure that puffy 80’s sleeves are not going to be coming back anytime soon!

One of the main focuses and statements of bridal 2016 so far has been sheer dresses, lace and all the linen that you can think of! Spanish inspired design houses like Naeem Kahn are very on point with this, the spring 2016 side of trends within the industry! Most of the retailed lines are shown as nude but not nude so that you feel comfortable wearing it around your family, there is something for everyone! The key of finding your perfect nude dress is making sure it shows off all the right assets, and tastefully accentuates your body in the perfect way for your special day!

Colour trends to come do include the light pale pinks and mint greens, but 2016 so far has been a pretty dark year, with the darker colours becoming more of a trend! Deep reds and modern gothic looks and moody have a romantic feeling. Designers like Inbal Dror and Vera Wang have been expressing this in recent collections.

Designer Angel Sanchez has added 3D floral applications to collections, which is personally my favourite and adds such a perfect touch to the dress, they are not overpowering but they have a simple and elegant touch to the dresses, plus flowers are just amazing!

Silhouettes are always fun to play with in the bridal industry! Oscar de la Renta often plays with the classic sweet but modern take on the silhouettes, but the dresses and gowns are amazing every time!

As long as you feel amazing in the dress it doesn't really matter if it follows the trends, you need to make yourself happy first!
