Tea Party with BreeLena

I love that I got to shoot a Tea Party in BreeLena‘s spring bridal line! I have literally been obsessed with these photos for about a month. I think I have posted more of these than any other other shoot I have ever gotten to be part of.

Beaded Gown from Bree Lena

This is by far one of the most beautiful dresses I have ever worn, and I’m sure most of the others were also made by Bree Wilkins. I got to wear this beautiful gown for her Bree Lena Bridal Collection during Provo Fashion Week and I didn’t want to give it back! It is amazing. The bead work is flawless and you have to make sure to look at the detail! I also love the gorgeous belt that she added! Visit her site www.breelena.com to see other designs or to ask about custom orders!

Colbalt Blue for Bree Lena

I think I shall wear this skirt every day.

Bree Lena designed this whole outfit for her Spring 2015 Ready to Wear show at Provo Fashion Week. I think a lot of people assume that this is a dress, but it’s actually a blouse and skirt. When worn together it gives the illusion of a dress, but I love that it is actually two pieces because you can mix and match it with other items. Bree wore it on Day 2 with one of her cute sweatshirt tops to dress it down a little bit and I absolutely loved it! I love the fluidity of it. I think I’m going to need to add this to my closet!

To order or get a custom item from Bree, visit her site at www.breelena.com
