The Beauty Within Bridal team was thrilled to put on it’s very first RUNWAY SHOW at one of North Florida’s newest wedding venue, Tuscan Rose Vineyards. This stunning venue invited our boutique to show off a couple of our dresses at their 2018 grand opening event.

We had such a fantastic time partnering with other wedding vendors (you can see the list of vendors at the bottom of this post), meeting new brides, and, of course, putting on our very first runway show!

If you missed the show, no worries! You can pretend you were there by checking out these photos and dress descriptions below!


PALOMA BY L'AMOUR

Our stunning model, Olivia, was wearing the timeless and sophisticated Paloma dress. This ball gown by L'Amour by Calla Blanche is made of gorgeous satin, giving this dress a look of pure elegance. The illusion, deep V neckline is incredibly flattering and extends nearly to the thin, beaded waist belt. The adorable cap sleeves of Paloma are a point of unique charm, but, perhaps the most show stopping element of this gown is the breath taking bead work across the entire back and sleeves. Paloma's glamorous beading and clean satin make it a bridal look for the ages.


ANGELINA BY GODDESS BY NATURE

The gorgeous Taylor is wearing our Angelina dress by Australian designer, Goddess by Nature. The Angelina is the perfect combination of sexy and simple, with it's V neckline and figure hugging silhouette. It is covered with a intricate floral lace, extending all the way to it's train. This gown features an enchanting open back with adjustable crisscross straps. As with almost all Goddess By Nature gowns, a bride can easily make the Angelina her own by changing the colors, adding a leg slit, or shortening the train length. The charming Angelina is perfect for beach weddings and brides with a unique, bohemian style.


MAEVE BY SOPHIA TOLLI

Ashley was an absolutely a show stopper in the Maeve by Sophia Tolli! This two-piece wedding dress is comprised of a fitted dress and a detachable chapel length train. The dress has a flattering sweetheart neckline and multiple layers of hand-beaded lace. The detachable train is made of full, misty tulle billowing from the beaded belt at the natural waist. The train is embellished with stunning lace appliqués to match that of the dress itself. The dress here is in french beige, but could also be made in white or ivory. The Maeve is a gown like no other, as it allows a bride to have two different looks on her big day.


ZEPHYRA BY SOPHIA TOLLI

Kristen looked like she was late to the ball in her "Cinderella Ball gown". This Sophia Tolli dress is sure to captivate a room with it's flowing tulle skirt and chapel length train. The beaded bodice of this dress has a unique geometric pattern that magnificently sparkles in the light. The design of this dress is topped off with a beautiful strapless scoop neckline and corset back. The gown can come in ivory, as you see here, as well as white or cameo. Zephyra is certainly a dress fit for a princess!


APHRODITE BY SOPHIA TOLLI

We put Beauty Within Bridal Consultant, Destiny, in a statement wedding gown! Heads are always turned by Aphrodite’s allover organza lace paired with the floral, lace appliqués and scattered sequins throughout the dress. While this dress can come in ivory or white, the dress you see here has a blush undertone that is beautifully contracting the ivory lace. This dress has a flattering illusion neckline, a stunning semi-sheer keyhole back, and can have corset or button closure. Aphrodite is a striking ball gown for the modern bride.


MIRAI BY L'AMOUR

If you follow Beauty Within on any social media platform, you have definitely seen Kayley, one of our most frequent models! She had a bridal look of pure glamour on the runway wearing the Mirai gown! This dramatic, plunging neckline pairs beautifully with the semi sheer, lace bodice. The entire form fitting gown is adorned with subtle sparkles as well as a captivating lace. This dress features a low, open back with illusion sides. The short, lace train of this gown is generously lined with horse hair, giving the train an exceptionally crisp edge. The Mirai by L'amour modernizes the classic "old Hollywood" look and is sure to be a statement gown at any wedding.

And I suppose that just leaves me (Chris)! Though I am normally in the boutique helping other people in wedding dresses, at the runway show I was actually wearing the modern and romantic Caitlyn wedding dress. This ball gown has a illusion bodice adorned with a whimsical, floral lace. The low cut neckline and thin straps are lined with eye catching beads that flawlessly match the dreamy, sparkle belt. This belt extends all the way around the waist and cuts through the flirtatiously low open back. The skirt of this stunning gown features multiple, airy layers of tulle, each lined with the popular horse hair edge. This dress finishes with it's breathtaking, multi layered train. The Caitlyn is made for the effervescent bride who is looking to create a fairytale wedding!

SIDE BAR: My husband, Connor, was a huge help at the runway show and we had so much fun getting to play a bit of dress up together. I’m one lucky girl! :)


Our first runway show was FANTASTIC and we were honored to be apart of Tuscan Rose Vineyard’s grand opening! If you are a bride and you want to try on any of the gorgeous dresses that were in our runway show, you can simply make an appointment with us here! We look forward to meeting you soon!
