Green Wedding Shoes spotlight

Last week Mariposa had the pleasure of being featured on one of our favorite bridal blogs Green Wedding Shoes! About a month ago we were approached by the brilliant minds of 24Carrots Catering and Inviting OC to collaborate on a bohemian inspiration photo shoot and we jumped at the opportunity. Then we learned the setting was going to be at our new neighbors place The Colony House and we were so excited to get a sneak peek at all the work they had done to the venue. The results turned into what could be one of our favorite shoots yet! Coming together with furniture from Found Vintage Rentals, paper goods from Ampersand Ink Designs and designer extraordinaires  FlowerWild the whole day radiated style. We really could gush about this all day but we’ll be quit and let you fawn over the photos. For even more goodies check out the article here!

Sophia Tolli + Mariposa = LOVE

Our samples have started arriving and we’re bursting at the seems with excitement! Our newest family member creates a fit like a glove yet still manages to look like the softest styles. Sophia Tolli is knows for her construction and her detail. Every bead on the samples we’ve received is so perfectly placed and every stitch was clearly thought about. We also definitely can’t talk about Sophia Tolli without bringing up her lace. It’s so beautiful our eyes have this temporary dream like glow to them. They’re the gowns you have the slow motion running through the field montage with. Basically we wish we had reasons to wear them all pretty much always. I’ve put a gallery below of some of our favs that we will be getting and some of the ones we already have. We can’t wait for all the amazing things to come with this line!

Bridal Blues

No not that kind of blues. The color! Meet Christa. This girl is a Mariposa bride through and through. Not only did she come hang out with us to find her bridal gown BUT she also introduced us to her family and friends when we did her Bridesmaids, Flowergirl, Mother of the Groom and Grandmother of the Groom! She wrapped us up in her blue inspired wedding and we were swept away in planning paradise. Obviously her dress stole the show. That Allure gown demands to be adored. And her girls all looked so beautiful in that soft blue.

There is nothing more beautiful then her smile in these photos though. We could talk all day about the gowns but at the end of it all her radiating happiness is all you see. We wish these two crazy kids nothing but the best!

Over Seas By The Sea

So when we say one of our brides got married in her fiances home country of Turkey we mean she got married at the most beautiful place ever. Hello blue water, soft sand and mountains.  Alexis wore the absolute perfect Pronovias dress for her venue. This wedding screams soft and fun and the dress went right along with that. We should also talk about the Pronovias belt that made the whole thing breathtaking. I mean that beauty works perfectly.  Alexis says ” It was the wedding we had dreamed of and hoped for, and the dress was absolutely perfect.” and that’s all we can ever hope for. We are so so happy how everything came together for you!

Bridal Expo’s and all their money saving goodness

If you’re planning a wedding there is no way you haven’t heard of or been to one of the elusive bridal expos. They are a huge help when planning a wedding. All your vendors in one spot all offering specials and discounts? Nothing could be more helpful. But did you know you can also score a killer deal on a designer wedding gown? Because you can! We work with the BrideWorld Expo circuit and sell gowns at most of their Expo’s. It’s a great way to try great styles and save a lot of money.

So come see us! We will be at the Ontario expo on Sunday July 27th! We have hundreds of dresses to choose from so I promise you wont want to miss it. The video below gives a little bit of an idea of how it goes!

Beautiful Waterfront Wedding

So we kind of love this wedding. Like really really love this wedding. The bride, Kori, was a blast to work with so we knew her wedding was going to be a fun one. When she sent us the pictures we weren’t sure what shined more, her or that insane sunset. Everything about this day looks happy. And at the end of it all that’s what it’s about people. Love and happiness.

Summer Sioree

It’s that time of year again when the temperatures rise and the invitations start to pour in. There is a reason summer is the busiest season for weddings. Between the weather and the constant feel of vacation everyone is relaxed and ready for a good time. It also provides some of the prettiest locations and scenery. Whether we’re talking beach setting or an over grown garden summer just kind of has it all.

So we decided to make a little inspiration board full of pictures of our ideal summer wedding. Between dresses, florals and locations here is what we might do for our very own summer soiree.

I mean really I could go on for days and create story boards for dozens of different weddings but we’ll keep it under control. We hope you guys have as much fun planning as we do mock planning. There’s so much out there this just begins to scratch the surface. Remember when planning there are no rules and you can do whatever your heart desires.

It’s all in the details.

When it comes to Enzoani you can guarantee no single stitch in their designs is left untouched. Every single bead, crystal or applique is placed in it’s spot for a very specific reason. No other designer quite covers all the bases like Enzoani does. That’s why here at the store giddy is the unanimous feeling when we book a trunk show with them. Knowing their beading and amazing silhouettes are going to be taking over our show room a countdown immediately starts in our minds.

Our boutique turns into an Enzoani extravaganza on May 10th and returns May 16th-18th. Trust me when I say you wont want to miss this.
