As we featured in this month’s newsletter, Soledad and Greg were married on March 22, 2014 in Puerto Rico. The pair loved the idea of a destination wedding and were inspired by the tropical hues for their wedding celebration. However, even though the couple was married on an island, they didn’t want a beach affair.
After being married in a historic church they celebrated in a grand ballroom complete with classic architectural features, romantic candle centerpieces and cool blue tones sprinkled throughout the reception.
The groom’s favorite part of their wedding day was when the church doors first opened and he saw his bride. Soledad still remembers arriving to the front of the church, she almost kissed him right there before the mass started.
The couple just moved to San Diego last week and are so thrilled to begin their next chapter in a new city.

We are so excited to have the latest Berta collection in our store! The collection will only be in D.C. for three days this weekend and we cannot wait to share it with all of our brides. The Berta collection never disappoints and this season Berta took her signature seductively romantic look to the next level. What we loved most about the line was the versatility, from additional trains, to overskirts, and more, brides can create their own personal Berta bridal look. We put together some of our favorite gowns from the featured collection take a look…
As we mentioned in our newsletter this month, we are OBSESSED with Sara Azani’s blog, Style MBA. Sara is both the creator and editor; her blog focuses on fabulous fashion, beauty, decor, and travel inspiration.
Sara was kind enough to take some time with us to discuss Valentine’s Day styling tips. With V-Day just around the corner her expert guidance is much appreciated! Here’s what she had to say…
Q: What is your go-to date look?
A: I love wearing neutral tones for date night whether it’s for dinner or the movies. Comfy heels are also number 1. If I plan on getting more dressed up, I’ll throw on a comfortable dress with some booties.
Q: What completes a date-night outfit for you?
A: The shoes and bag! Shoes and bags are investment worthy pieces that make an outfit. Make sure to invest in a nice handbag or pair of heels that you can wear repeatedly to make your return on investment.
Q: There are so many different types of date ideas, what would you wear to the following?…
Classic dinner and movie
A: I would wear a chunky sweater with sexy cut outs, leggings, and high boots.
A more neutral look — classic white silk top and great jeans, with high heels and a nice statement bag.
Home cooked meal and wine by the fire
A: A comfortable sweater dress and my favorite slippers ;)
