Welcome to our magical oasis at Park Studios ATL where we showcased our 2021 collection with the one and only Kelly Lane Photography.Our fave opalescent garter, the Ariel Opal, collided with model Mariya Khlysta for a moment we will never be able to forget.A warm thank you to Plum Pretty Sugar for sending us this incredible Femme Bridal Robe. It made the aesthetic of our shoot shine bright like a diamond.Are you feelin' those glam vibes?! We are. And we are so appreciative to the one and only Bogart Beauty for slaying Mariya's hair and make up look last week. Pure magic right here.We are particularly smitten with this image of the Ariel Opal garter on Mariya towards the tail end of our glamorous shoot. Doesn't she look amazing?The one and only Mariya Khlysta wearing our Oh-So-Engaged earrings with a robe from Plum Pretty Sugar!!! (Mic drop.) 🎤🎤 A big big teary-eyed, heart-bursting-with-gratitude THANK YOU to everyone who made our most recent, floral-inspired photoshoot possible! Dear photographer Kelly Lane: it hurts to think I might not have met you. Your photography skills are a true creative blessing to all of us. The world. Me. The flowers. Your kitty. The city of Atlanta at large. Just EVERYONE. 🙏🏼🙏🏼💋💋💋And to model Mariya Khlysta- all I can say is that the woman at the Chanel counter who insisted that I get in touch with you is getting a special thank you package this week. Like, tomorrow. I’m totally serious. I owe her one big time and there is DEFINITELY some big magic up in the sky that helped us cross paths. I am stunned by the combination of your physical beauty and your inner prettiness. It’s definitely not common. Girl, you are a TRUE UNICORN. 🦄🦄🦄🦄.To make up artist Erica Bogart: I am not only grateful for your shimmer-highlight-glam-bam-talents, but to the universe in general for bringing us closer these past few months via various creative projects. I once heard somebody say “let your work be your prayer” .....and I can’t help but wonder if our simultaneous always-striving-to-grow-to-greater-heights hustle is, at this point in our lives, in perfect alignment with one another’s right now...which....when fused together, consequently resulted in these incredible photos of Mariya ...not to mention mini-charcuterie boards and pink telephones. 👯📞😂And to the amazing ATL bridal store Elite Pour La Vie- I am speechless. This gown made the entire shoot and I would like to apologize to NO ONE about how much we are going to be tagging you in 2021. 😂😂🤗 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼If anyone out there reading this is truly smitten with the wedding dress in these photos, please get in touch with a store called Elite Pour La Vie. You won’t regret it. People fly out to Atlanta every week to try on gowns at this legendary store. 💗💗

As June comes to a close, so does all of our June customizations. This month, I worked with three different brides to create 3 completely unique wedding garters sets. While I don't usually play favorites, I have to say that June's "winning" custom garter design is La Gartier bride Victoria Henderson's vintage locket and opal garter set. (see photos and captions below!)When Victoria contacted us last March to book her custom garter, she told me that she wanted something that matched her gown as well as the beading on her sash. I agreed to take on her customization immediately, expecting it to turn out just like her gown.......... but her garters ended up being SO MUCH MORE!! Here are just a few photos of Victoria's garter set along with some written info about my favorite designs elements:
The rose gold locket at the center of her toss is an original antique that Victoria and I stumbled across on Etsy. We just about died when we found this one because "M" is the first initial of her fiancé' name: Montana. We weren't even looking for an engraved locket, let alone one engraved with an "M"....but it's my personal opinion that this BEAUTY found its way to us for the creation of her garters. Meant to be? Yes, yes and yes!
The pink velvet ribbon on her toss garter was chosen to match her bridesmaids dresses as well as the slight blush pink tone of her Enzoani bridal gown. Also, the opal and rhinestone beading on her keepsake matches the beading on her sash, but not so matchy matchy that it's obnoxious.Her wedding date and initials are embroidered on the inside of her garter in navy blue to match her groomsmens tuxes. (This means that Victoria has not only one but two "something blues" for her wedding day!)Because Victoria didn't want to toss her vintage "M" locket garter, we created this amazing "G" inspired toss for her. That way, she could keep the vintage locket design and still do the garter toss. (G is the first letter of her new last name! So appropriate, right?!)
The only thing not pictured here is all of the beautiful custom packaging that we created when we packed up her garters to be shipped!! Also not pictured here is the look on her daughter's face 30 years from now when Victoria gives her one or both of these garters for her very own wedding day!! <insert happy tears emoji>Victoria, I can't wait to hear about what you decide to put into the locket. Knowing how much you love florals and greenery, I have a feeling it will be something organic from your wedding day but anything you decide will most likely be beyond gorgeous!If you love these photos as much as we do and would like to speak with someone about having a custom garter made for yourself or someone whom you love, then please feel free to contact us via email at email@example.com OR you can use the contact form by clicking here. Happy La Gartier everyone!

For some, St. Patrick's Day is a holiday best spent drinking green beer, eating corn beef and cabbage or commemorating the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. For others, St. Patrick's Day is all about celebrating the color green and finally saying goodbye to the Ugg wearing days of winter. Like many of my color-obsessed wedding industry colleagues, I definitely fall into the latter of those two categories. This year, St. Patrick's Day meant creating an instagram video using green roses (swoon) as well as the one rare occasion to purchase a gold Shamrock paperweight from Target. (At $19.00, this item is an absolute steal!) The only thing missing from this video is a rainbow, which..... believe it or not, I actually spent quite some time trying to figure out how to manufacture. Turns out that Mother Nature is the only one who has that down. Happy Saint Patrick's Day everyone! I hope you are wearing your prettiest green dress/blouse/heels/earrings right now!! (Btw- if you love the garter that I am wearing in this video, you can make it your own by clicking here.)

The beginning of February went off with a bang when Jennifer Williams of Jennifer Williams Boudoir sent me the prettiest photographs from a recent bridal boudoir shoot that she did using our ivory pearl toss garter.
The timing could not have been more perfect with Valentine's Day sitting smack dab in the middle of the month. I means, seriously, nothing says I Love You more than a sizzling bridal boudoir session set in a sea of creamy linen sheets and high-quality lingerie.
Valentine's Day aside, I was also extremely happy that Jennifer sent us these images due to the fact that they single handedly make one point very clear: if you are planning on doing a bridal boudoir shoot before you wedding, then you simply must have a La Gartier garter on hand. Slim, sparkling and modern, our garters make for the most beautiful addition to any bridal lingerie set that you might be considering. The best part? You can then wear your garter again on your wedding day or even your wedding night! To shop our entire collection, please click here:
Also, just in case you are equally taken with the lingerie that Jennifer used in the below images-- they belong to a company called Lola & August that will simply knock your socks off.
A huge thank you to Jennifer Williams of Jennifer Williams Boudoir for taking the time to capture our designs in such a flattering and sexy light! And another big thank you to the beauty wearing our garter in the below photos, Vannessa Young, for modeling our ivory pearl garter like an angel sent from heaven. You both make our company extremely happy to be in business of dressing brides-to-be during one of the sexiest holidays of the year-- Valentine's Day. These photos could not have come at a more appropriate time! Happy La Gartier everyone!
