Michaela and Love

Michaela and Love created their own wedding-like vow renewal overlooking New York City, and funnily enough, if it weren’t for COVID, they might not have even considered the event.

An intimate event of eight guests at their dream venue, Michaela and Love jumped on the opportunity at The 620 Loft & Garden to celebrate an afternoon of love and four years of marriage. With bohemian touches, a tented lounge was created complete with a record player and cocktails.

And the special touch? The couple didn’t have a photographer at their wedding in 2016, but this time, Amy Anaiz photographed the special moment, one they can now treasure forever and share with their children.

Michaela fell in love with the feminine and unique design of her Liz Martinez dress, and despite thinking she would never be one to wear a veil, she fell in love with the matching veil to her dress. Michaela wore Bulent, from the stunning SS 2019 Istanbul collection. An ivory dress adorned in flower appliques on the bodice, and a full tulle skirt with subtle dotted detailing on the outer layer.

This story of love reminds us that celebrations, dream dresses and dream locations don’t have to end after the wedding, because love has no expiration date, and even years later, there are reasons to celebrate. Even if that reason is just love itself.

The intimate celebrate was spent with loved ones, and had a backdrop just as epic as their love story.

May and Shahar

Shahar had been living in New York for a while, and May reached out on Facebook groups of Israeli’s living in New York asking for advice before her big move. Shahar offered to help, and just so happened to be living right next to May’s hotel. The meant to be couple met when she arrived, and have been together ever since.

What couldn’t have been expected was what weddings would look like in 2020, and May and Shahar’s special day was no exception, after cancelling their plans and locations twice, and then deciding to plan again within two days just before a second lockdown in Israel.

They did it, and it was perfect. The boho chic theme was felt from May’s bouquet, to the ceremony and into the reception. Their unique style could be felt in every detail, and May knew that to top it all off, she wanted to wear the Alina gown, part of our Amour 2020 collection. May looked comfortable and beautiful in her one sleeve satin dress, flowing down and a high slit in the skirt. She paired the gown with blue stilettos reminiscent of those Carrie Bradshaw wore to her Sex and the City wedding, fitting for a couple that met and live in NYC.

Love can be felt through the photos, and despite the difficulties in place with Covid-19, the beautiful LM couple had the most beautiful day and night, one to remember, and planned a dream in only a few hours.

May’s advice to any bride and groom planning their special day is to surround yourself with love, with people that are always there to help and support you, and to dream what you want and make it happen. All in good energy and driven by love, which is exactly how their day looked.

Lydia and Toby

They met at a nightclub in 2013, and after three short months, Lydia finally decided to reply to Toby’s message sent after the night they first crossed paths. They then went on their first date, and as they say, the rest was history.

 To top off all of the romance, Toby proposed to Lydia on their skiing trip in the Dolomites, Italy. Like a scene from a movie, he had it all figured out and got down on one knee in the snow, on the mountain.

Inspired by the rustic beauty of Middleton Lodge, their wedding was abundant with nature and flora, with the theme continuing on into the brides dress itself. Adorned in floral applique, her tulle Liz Martinez gown and veil matched perfectly with the romantic theme of the wedding. Lydia wore the Ariel dress on her special day, from collection Spring Summer 19, and looked absolutely stunning.

The room was adorned in wood and rattan furniture, candlesticks and greenery, the perfect rustic yet romantic wedding. To top it all off, the menu was curated from the venues very own kitchen garden as well as local produce.

Their day opened with a yoga class, shifting the nervous energy and preparing the bride for the beginning of her forever. To this beautiful couple, marriage means a promise to one another, and to be each other’s number one fan. We couldn’t agree more and are so grateful to have been a part of this beautiful day.

Lacey and Matt

Childhood sweethearts Lacey Turner and Matt Kay ignored the traditional rules when getting married and planned an Ibiza wedding of their dreams. After spending most of their lives together, not only were they sure about spending the rest of their lives together, but they were even more excited than when they started dating.

The beautiful, laid back ceremony took place at sunset at an exclusive resort in Ibiza, with no nerves and only excitement radiating from both the bride and groom. The reception flowed into the night with tapas style dishes past around throughout the event. Stunning colourful florals and boho touches created the perfect arch at the end of the aisle, with the same playful theme following into the reception.

Lacey’s stunning dress, Collette, from collection Morocco 2017. The bodice decorated in 3D flower applique, a big tulle skirt and the same detailing spread throughout and down the train. With a playful gown exuding romance, it was the perfect fit for the romantic, one-of-a-kind wedding.

We absolutely adore Lacey and Matt, and are so grateful to have been a part of their fairytale.

Kelsey and Nicholas

After dating for four years, the actors were on a vacation in Capri, and Nicholas got down on one knee on a boat in the midst of a cave in the Blue Grotto. After dreaming of a jungle style wedding, the Zika virus broke out and with only three months until their wedding date, both the venue and design had to change.

In the dream scene the air was relaxed and food, drinks and music filled the entire reception all through the night, realizing that location was hardly a factor in creating their dream wedding.Kelsey stunned in her Amy dress, the dress that opened fashion week in Australia, 2016. A beautiful A-line silhouette and a deep-V neckline, detailed with intricate beading and sparkle, she was a true princess on her special day.

With the detailing of the occasion inspired by the Mediterranean, olive branches were used in Kelsey’s bouquet and in the flower girls crowns, and the theme flowed into the aisle for the ceremony, layered in Mediterranean rugs and terracotta pots. Inspired by Capri, a sentimental location for the couple, the ceremony and reception were decked in little reminders of Italy, including limoncello’s to open the event.

The stunning photos ooze style, romance, and elegance, and are a great reminder that love isn’t created just for the wedding day, but for a lifetime of together.

Kathleen and Ian

Picture perfect Ian and Kathleen met on set on a movie, and their love story blossomed from there. A French-inspired venue located in the dreamy Byron Bay, the couple decided that when planning, the most important thing is that everyone has fun.

Driven by that, one of the first things organized was Kathleen’s’ dress. She had her eye on Liz Martinez designs for a long time, and as fate would have it, a Trunk Show was on its way to Sydney that weekend. Kathleen, her mother and sister bought tickets to Sydney and fell in love with her dream dress very quickly. She chose Mulan, from SS19, a deep V appliqued bodice with silver detailing, fitted at the waist and finished in a full tulle skirt.

The ceremony was followed by a reception filled with rattan furniture, an ivory and peach palette dream inside a completely clear marquee, creating the perfect inside-outside fairytale. Adorned in fairy lights, the marquee lit up as the sun went down and the party began.

On the morning of the wedding Katarina and Zack ate breakfast together at their dreamy location just before the bridal party arrived to help the bride get ready for her big day.

With dramatic long sleeves, the dress is covered entirely in silver hand embroidery and tulle detailing.
