Berta Bridal and Inbal Dror are two of the top bridal designers in the industry today, with incredibly sexy gowns, sultry silhouettes and endless back drama. It’s no wonder when we saw this European-inspired shoot by MBK Photography that our hearts skipped a beat. The creative team created two contrasting color palettes to compliment the bridal gowns using vibrant and on trend hues that will certainly be hot this upcoming wedding season.
The elegant Anderson House in DC was used as the stunning backdrop. Its eclectic interiors, dominated by English and Italian influences, feature the painstaking work of craftsmen who adorned the house with carved wood walls, gilded papier-mâché ceilings, ornate iron staircases, and intricate marble floors. In the spring of 1905, Anderson House was completed and took its place as one of the capital city’s most fashionable mansions – a “Florentine villa in the midst of American independence.”
The first gown featured is by Inbal Dror and is a lush mermaid silhouette. Coveted by brides for her combination of sex appeal, romance and fashion edge, this designer is also known for sultry silhouettes and dazzling embellishments. Inbal Dror incorporates romantic fabrics, long dramatic trains and low gorgeous backs into her designs. High on femininity and fashion forward designs a bride is certain to be the center of attention on her dream day. From Elizabeth collars, modern plunging necklines, Baroque styling there is something for every bride-to-be within her collection. Coupled with a brighter color palette using corals, these bridesmaids dresses are purely sassy with a shorter length that is perfect for the warmer months. Each dress is a different designer showcasing Ceremony by Joanna August, Encore by Watters, Alfred Sung and Lula Kate. The precious flower girl completing this fabulous bridal part is wearing Lille Couture.
Our premier partner Berta is the designer of the second gown. Her avant-garde styles have taken the bridal world by storm. Seduction and innovation are certainly synonymous with her designs. Each gown is sensual, ornate and dramatic. The fabric blends are remarkable like the combination of this lace, illusion and flowing chiffon skirt with a high leg split. When you try on a Berta gown, everything falls into place. The cut, fit and silhouette are unlike anything else. Paired with this gown, are various shades of blue bridesmaids dresses. Two of the styles are Amsale Bridesmaids along side a Joanna August and an Adrianna Papell for a touch of glitz and glam. This color palette is perfect for a cooler toned wedding that a bride can blend in with the ever trending metallic shades of silver, gold or rose gold to heighten a luxurious ambience. You can see Berta’s full collection of bridal gowns in our Lookbook here.
Various headpieces were also incorporated with each dress to illustrate that any bride can make their look their own. Depending on personal style, a bride can wear a birdcage headpiece or a bohemian flower crown to adjust their desired look with these breathtaking gowns.
