Today we’re taking a quick break from gorgeous destinations to show you some gorgeous wedding gowns instead! Looking for that perfect ball gown to wear on the beach or perhaps a slimmer fit sheath dress for your destination I do in Italy?! Recently we got to celebrate one of our favorite bridal couture designers, Lazaro, while dinning with him over breakfast and bridal gowns and the result was pure beauty. Take a look at some of the stunning wedding dresses ready for you and your big day by Lazaro, and you might even find some wedding or bridal shower inspiration in here today too!

The brunch took place at Lazaro’s flagship bridal salon in the heart of Los Angeles, at the JLM Boutique, where all the great JLM Couture brands are housed and waiting to be tried on in person. The salon is so pretty, it was the perfect site for a day out on the town brunching among fashion.

Crystal-adorned hair pieces by Maria Elena were not only worn by the models throughout the morning, but were also gifted to each guest as a party favor. The butterfly motif was then woven in throughout this garden-inspired affair to keep the theme alive.

Here’s our darling and dashing host, the incredibly talented bridal designer, Lazaro. His gowns are always so full of life, fluttering with romance, just enough drama, and of course lots of sparkle and sophistication.
