I am a sucker for a perfect, cocktail style short wedding dress. Probably because I am not sure I could ever take the plunge myself (though have such jealously for those who do!), but also because there is so much room for such fabulous style when you shorten the hemline.

So, when the wonderfully talented Alice Hu sent me photos from a recent shoot that she did for Dolly Couture, I swooned a little bit…

Adorable, aren’t they? And the leapard pumps…well, perfection. Here are a few details from Alice…

This shoot was shot at the amazing Pacific Edge Villa in Laguna Beach.  Both of these dresses are brand new styles from Dolly Couture.  Dolly Couture specializes in 50′s inspired vintage gowns that are fully customizable.  The cute vintage inspired leopard print pumps are from Ellie Shoes.  They match with the style and feel of the dress perfectly.  The birdcage veil is made from vintage lace, flowers, and veil.

SO cute. Hair and make-up was done by Lisa Pilgrim + Kacee Geoffroy, the hair accessory is by Be Something New and the bouquet is by Fantasy Floral Design. Thank you to Alice Hu for providing us with such great inspiration!
