I am so excited to offer you an exclusive peek at A Novel Romance, the annual bridal fashion show held here in Portland and hosted by my favorite bridal shop, The English Dept. It's refreshing as bridal shows go and just a treat to attend. Lisa Warninger captured it beautifully.

The girls wore headpieces by the extraordinary Twigs & Honey that felt very modern Jane Austen.


Gowns from Melissa Sweet, Simple Silhouettes, Thread, Vera Wang, Jenny Yoo and of course Elizabeth Dye were showcased.

  1. Thanks for this! I was at the fashion show but sitting at the back so I couldn’t tell the length on some of the dresses! So, so lovely!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous photos, and such beautiful simple dresses. I also love the blossoming branches in the background. I would have loved to have those at my wedding if I had gotten married in spring!
