LAURIE + MIKE

Our beautiful, body positive blogger L’ezu bride babe (enough alliteration for you?) Laurie Brucker, just sent us her wedding photos and of course we’re head over heels for them. We loved designing this form flattering layered lace gown for Laurie. We wanted to make sure to incorporate the shorter length in the front and longer train in the back in order to showcase those killer Valentino shoes! Laurie couldn’t have been more wonderful to work with and she’s emanating absolute joy and beauty in these gorgeous pictures by Nicole Leever Photography. Congratulations Laurie and Mike on your beautiful day!

JESSIE + DAVAN

One of our most spectacular brides had her French Disco themed wedding chosen to be featured on brides.com and we just couldn't wait to share it with you! You can read more about the details on the post but let's just say it's an absolute stunner down to the last detail. We were delighted to work with Jessie on her customs made, off-the-shoulder dress. We drew inspiration from old-era France, using white silk charmeuse and hand stitched french embroidery. We're also in love with the the touch of neon at the reception and the disco theme! Congratulations Jessie and Davan!

LINDSAY + PETER

We've decided the perfect way to close out 2017 is celebrating one of our loveliest brides yet. Lindsay and Peter were married in Arroyo Grande on a beautiful typical California day. Our favorite part of creating her wedding gown was adding a dramatic ruffle down the back paired with a plunging lower back V cut. We hope all of our L'ezu brides and followers have a beautiful and happy New Year and enjoy these beautiful shots of Lindsay and Peter!

We are so excited to share this truly special gown and even more special bride.

Add the magnificent backdrop of the historic post office in Washington D.C. and you've got the perfect blend of modern and classic. Congratulations Keltie and Ryan!

FEATURE ON WEDDING SHOP STORIES

We are so proud to announce that L'ezu was a chosen feature on Wedding Shop Stories, an online wedding blog that outlines small business success stories. Our very own co-founder and lead designer, Patricia Nevil, gave a fabulous interview.

Here's a small excerpt:

Q: What do you like most about your business? What part of it is the most fulfilling?

A: The fact that I come to a playground! Always making something new and meeting new people!

Q: What advice would you like to give to people who wish to start a bridal boutique?

A: Being in the bridal industry is a passion more than a business, you need to be compassionate, assertive, flexible and most of all a good listener.

Q: What advice would you like to give to brides who walk into your boutique?

A: Enjoy the visit, and learn as much as you can about the fitting of a well made garment.

Check out the whole interview here. 

BEHIND THE SCENES- A L'EZU PHOTOSHOOT

Our web designer and social media manager, Andrea, got a chance to photograph behind the scenes at our last Follies photoshoot. Now that the gorgeous pictures are released, we thought we'd show a different perspective on the bridal fashion industry.
