Rhododendrons and romance: The Harrison wedding

Here at The English Dept, there is seriously nothing we love more than receiving wedding photos from our brides! It is always such a thrill for us to watch how each bride puts her own flair on a dress, and seeing two people come together to celebrate their love never, ever gets old! We also love seeing how something as simple as a location change can bring out completely new facets of a dress! Our gowns look beautiful on the rack, but it's really something else to see them out in the wild.

Today we are showcasing the ridiculously cute wedding of Claire and Craig. Claire rocked our Marie gown by Nicole Miller, one of our very favorite dresses! The floral pattern in the lace was perfectly accented by their location, the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden. Crystal Springs is very close to our own hearts- we shot our 2014 Lookbook there! It is a truly magical location, full of color and nature and just totally dreamy- the perfect place for a wedding ceremony. 

Congratulations, Claire and Craig! We wish you both the very best! 

Pre-ceremony at the Ace Hotel. The romantic styling of Marie juxtaposed with the bold patterns of the hotel is super eye-catching!

The gorgeous lakeside ceremony. We are loving the pop of color of Claire's shoes, which coordinates perfectly  with the ribbon on her bouquet!

So thrilled to be married! Their faces really say it all.

Seriously, could Claire and Craig be any cuter?! What a sweet moment!
