We partnered up with Vanessa Velez Photography, Soco Alicia (planner), Angel Rodriguez (florist), Adrienne Ferreira (model) to shoot some of our favorite looks for spring brides. If you’re recently engaged, now is the perfect time to start shopping for your wedding dress – even if your wedding isn’t until next spring or summer!

We styled some brand new Ines Di Santo dresses, here for last weekend’s trunk show, with accessories by Maria Elena for that bit of signature, #realchicbride sparkle and AMAZING boutiques by Angel Rodriguez speckled with peonies, ranunculus, and other spring florals.

Plus, we got the chance to play dress up with some of our brand new Christos Costarellos dresses – the perfect tea length dress for a garden wedding or a rehearsal dinner. More photos by the very talented Vanessa Velez are on the way, but until then, these behind the scenes shots should hold you over!

Erin Cole has been a notable accessories designer in the bridal world for years. Her Swarovski encrusted designs including jewelry, headpieces, veils, coverlets, sashes and more, have long been a staple at Chic Parisien so we were thrilled when Erin gave us the news that she was expanding into wedding dresses.

This past weekend we had Erin Cole’s first ever wedding dress line here at the boutique for a very chic trunk show.

Erin’s collection has something for everyone, the dresses are trendy, but timeless, lightweight for the girl who prioritizes comfortably breaking it down on the dance floor, and they’re sexy dresses with a focus on illusion necklines and soft glamour. You can tell that Erin is a California girl, the dresses are showstoppers, but they still feel easy; they’re stunning but it’s the girl who wears them who will really stand out, not the dress.

 

It’s February. While that means winter weddings featuring white fur stoles and definitely long sleeve dresses everywhere else, it’s just another day in paradise here in Miami. There’s no better time to be outside than mid-winter in Coral Gables where its the perfect time of year for dinner parties al fresco and beach days – but that doesn’t mean we don’t crave a bit of winter whimsy.

Alas, Maria Elena Accessories knows this all too well, that might be why they went with a winter theme for their lookbook featuring the newest earrings, necklaces, tiaras, and, of course, headpieces. The photos are the perfect inspiration for a winter #realchicbride whether in Miami or in the “real” winter.
