Being from California naturally I love ranch style, a kind of loose and casual mix of rustic juxtaposed with the antique elegance found in old missions and vineyards of Southern California.  When photographer Shannon Stellmacher and makeup artist Julie Morgan headed down to Sunstone Winery in the Santa Ynez Valley, three of the dresses in my collection went with them for this stylized shoot.  Here's the result of what happens on a perfectly sunny April day when nature meets the finest parts of architecture and art .

Seriously, the first time I laid eyes on these magnificent images by White Fashion Photographer, I cried.  A bit of photojournalism mixed with romanticism makes a beautiful study of  Kate and Adam's storybook wedding in Vilnius, Lithuania, a city to me reminiscent of ancient castles and palaces.     This intimate celebration began at Saint Casmir's Church in old town with a reception following at Apvalaus Stalo Klubas, in Trakai, a villa on the lake famous for its high quality of services all over the world. I'm especially adoring the little silk dress with a short train and peplum combo custom designed for Kate by designer, Juozas Statkevicus, an incredible fashion and costume talent originally from Lithuania .  .  .

Reception Location: Apvalaus Stalo Klubas, Trakai
