Bohemian Rhapsody: Delicate Wedding Gowns with Boho Edge and Sleek Styling

Written by

Spring Summer 2014

We just love mixing a bit of glamour with a touch of bohemian styling. Inspired by the historic rockers of called Laurel Canyon their home, we teamed up with Kristin Banta Events to create a boho-meets-midcentury-modern setting with bridal styling lightly influenced with a rock-n-roll sensibility. The overall look is all at once classic, lightly boho and just a little edge. And what we love most, is how it's the little details, a hairpiece, veil or unexpected pop of color in the jewels that make these looks so vibrant. And for more inspiration, check out the modern boho set (click here) for beautiful wedding decor inspirations (we're so obsessed with all the details on the table tops) while ogling beautiful designs from St. Pucchi, Alivina Valenta, Lazaro and more.
