With the start of fall just days away, we have been reflecting on the summer wedding season. And when it comes to luxury bridal fashion, flowers, and venues, the famous brides who walked the aisle this past season ignited our hearts and imaginations. Their highly anticipated nuptials took place at a French château, London church, English cathedral, and exclusive Hawaiian hotel. While these weddings were spectacularly lavish in every way possible, they were also a beautiful expression of each bride’s unique style and personality.

Katharine McPhee
Katharine McPhee and David Foster’s much-discussed courtship culminated with the couple exchanging vows at the Church of St. Yeghiche in South Kensington in late June. The Actress-singer wore a gorgeous custom Zac Posen dress featuring a ballgown silhouette, sweetheart neckline, and layer upon layer of striped tulle skirt. She accessorized with a dramatic cathedral veil and soft colored floral and greenery bouquet. The ceremony décor of lush, bright blooms created a striking contrast against the church’s ornate interior. For the post-ceremony celebrations, which took place at a private club, the bride changed into a silk cocktail dress, also by Zac Posen. Reception florals had a decadent, English garden feel with verdant greenery embellished with white and green roses and hydrangea.

Finding a dress can prove to be a difficult task for any bride-to-be, even those who have had wedding dreams since childhood. “I am not the best shopper,” Heather says with a laugh. “And I had no idea how to look ‘bridal’ without looking like I was wearing my Grandmother’s crochet.” Any fears of looking like a lace handkerchief were quickly put to rest during a visit to Kleinfeld Bridal. Here, Heather talks about her breathtaking Pronovias dress and bridal personals.

Part 2: Wedding Dress & Personals

With no clear idea of what to wear down the aisle, Heather enlisted the people whose opinion she trusted most for guidance. Everyone met for her appointment at Kleinfeld and Heather explained what she wanted and didn’t want to the stylist. After trying on about eight dresses, she had her “say yes to the dress” moment. She looks back, “As soon as I put my leg in the gown, I knew it was ‘the one.’ I felt like myself. When I walked out of the dressing room, they all confirmed what I already knew. And that was it!”

A world champion athlete, royal, celebrity daughter, fashionista, and French musical artist all walked the aisle in Spring 2019. The only thing that the nuptials had in common was they took place at the end of the season. Wearing couture gowns to exchange vows in gorgeous luxury settings around the world, these famous brides all took our breath away. Ranging from classic to bohemian chic to romantic, these weddings were exceptional and expressed each bride’s style and personality beautifully. Simply put, this is what wedding dreams of.

Katherine Schwarzenegger
As the daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, Katherine Schwarzenegger is as close as it gets to royalty in the US. After a whirlwind engagement, she married actor Chris Pratt in one of the most anticipated weddings of the year so far. The couple made it official in an intimate ceremony at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California. Giorgio Armani dressed both bride and groom. While Mr. Pratt’s movies bring in millions at the box office, Katherine, in her custom strapless gown featuring a fitted silhouette and lace train, was the real star here. She finished her classic look with an elegant white floral and greenery bouquet.

When it comes to choosing wedding attire, most brides-to-be let personal style be their guide. After all, you want to look and feel like yourself, but with a bit more polish and shine around the edges. Here, Bride & Blossom featured bride Sara talks about her “say yes to the dress” moment, jewelry, and stepping out-of-the box with her shoes.

Part 2 Wedding Dress & Personals

“I knew that I wanted a big, princess type dress, but without any bling and sparkle,” says Sara. Her search led her to BHLDN where she found a breathtaking design meeting all her criteria. The silhouette featured a simple lace top, fitted waist, and diaphanous, layered tulle skirt. “I knew it was the perfect dress for me when I put it on and couldn’t stop smiling,” she remembers. Finishing her dreamy look with a fingertip length veil, also from BHLDN, and hair styled in loose, flowing curls, the bride had an air of having just stepped out of a fairytale.
