Ceremony Magazine Interview with Legendary Bridal Gown Designer: Ines Di Santo

As seen in the 2014 edition of Ceremony Magazine Los Angeles, my article, FOR THE LOVE OF LOVELLA, is one of my favorite contributions to Ceremony this year. Not only is this brand new location and home for Lovella Bridal's luxurious salon a showstopper, but on the eve of their Grand Opening, I had the pleasure to hear the REAL STORY of how it all came to be!  And to top it off, I sat down with the legendary and magnificent Ines Di Santo for a fabulous interview.

See my article in print in Ceremony's LA edition on newsstands now.

Jorge mentioned in his "acceptance speech" that if he would have known this drawing would forever be remembered, he would have used better paper and put more thought into it… We think it's perfect :)
