Hello there! Welcome to part 3 of our Pop Sip Celebrate feature! You can check out part 1 here and part 2 here! And in case you did happen miss our previous posts here’s a quick little recap to catch you up. Last month I was given the opportunity to produce a bridal event for Epernay Lounge, a fabulous champagne lounge in Denver’s theater district. This party’esque bridal showcase featured a plethora of talented wedding creatives and a whole lotta pretty 2015 wedding trends. We partnered with a&bé bridal shop who provided the dreamy wedding gowns featured in today’s Indie Wedding Gowns + Downtown Denver Photo Shoot by Levi Tijerina. Keep scrolling and start pinning!
We were lucky enough to have some incredible artists on hand to help get our drop-dead gorgeous models all dolled up. Makeup by Heather B. and Nicole Toledo Makeup Artistry created fresh-faced dewy looks for our bride models that had their skin glowing in all the right places. Our hair stylist and braid extraordinaire Jessica Marquez, created soft loose braids to compliment. I have to mention that all of these artists are as lovely as they are talented.
Don’t you just love their overall look? Our brides donned beautiful earrings and bracelets by Geri’s Gems, a Chloe & Isabel stylist.
Drooling over these gowns? Ya, us too. Get the gown details below and then head over to a&bé bridal shop to make an appointment to try on and get a closer look. I’m telling you, you are going to la-la-love this shop.
a&bé bridal shop is a new boutique created to support the creative surge happening in weddings across the nation. First and foremost, a&bé supports the up&coming, & the indie, & the creative bridal designers and connects them to brides. Secondly, a&bé gives brides access to something different: they have a little bit of the bohemian, & the casual, & the vintage, & the separates, & the alternative & the romantic.
a&bé is an easy, no-fuss experience for brides who want a more laid back approach to their wedding dress shopping. a&bé is accessible: accessible by price point and by geography. There are currently two locations, Denver and Minneapolis, and a growing online shop. The majority of the wedding gowns are generally between one and three thousand dollars with a few designers that extend up to five thousand.
