Romantic. Bold. Sultry. Classic. Timeless. Speechless. Just a few of the words buzzing around in my fantastically stimulated brain as I sit down to process my first day at New York Bridal Fashion Week. So happy to be hear working alongside my fiancé and running into friends and colleagues as we all try to run from one end of Manhattan to the other hoping to catch every show and garner every bit of beauty, craftsmanship and bridal inspiration coming out of NYC this week. Below are a few favorites from our day on Thursday! Be sure to follow along on Instagram to get behind the scenes scoop and up to the minute updates on all of the looks coming off the runways.

Inbal Dror as always takes bold, feminine silhouettes to places they have never been in bridal couture.
Marchesa does romance like no other. Are these shoes not to die for?!
Another great example of a sleeve seen from Marchesa.
I just cannot get enough of these shoes!
Anne Barge, classic and timeless as always. And I obsess over magnolia leaves whenever I see them!
Anne Barge brings frothy to life with this gorgeous gown. Imagine a winter bride in this dress. Perfection.
Elizabeth Fillmore blends classic hollywood glamour with a fresh and chic feel. This jacket over that dress was everything.
Reem Acra left me speechless. The details. The femininity. And the sparkle. There is just no one like this designer and this collection is absolutely stunning.
The Reem Acra finale. Those crowns though!
Reem Acra also presented a really soft look for makeup with this collection. Highlighted cheekbones with soft and dewy made for oodles of beauty.
Reem Acra and bows are a symphony of bridal inspiration.
Can’t say it enough. BOWS!
Monique Lhuillier brought all kinds of inspiration this evening. From table top to runway, whimsical romance was in the house for this iconic brand.
Loved this rocker chic jacket for a daring bride.
See what I mean? Whimsy galore!
