There is always something magic about seeing your work featured in a magazine; and what better magazine then one from our original stomping ground Texas. Brides of Austin captured our "Rio" gown as the tragically beautiful gown she is.
Let me tell you. The chemistry between Mandy and Johnny was something else. In the forests of Portland, Oregon this lovely couple stunned us with their rad style. The amazing Kelsie EmM captured our Carly dress perfectly.
If you haven't fan girl-ed over the insta feed of Photographer Chantel Marie, you are missing out. She is so talented and we were so grateful to have her capture our gowns. Along with the stunning Model, Shae Powder Rose. Hope you enjoy this peek into our studio as much as we do. Now please excuse us while we pick our jaws up from off the ground. #chantelsquared

After many weeks spent tossing and turning, our gowns were ready for final fittings! We took a quick trip to San Francisco to visit our team, see patterns, check off gown samples, and have a little bit of fun! You will be able to find Chantel Lauren gowns in your favorite local bridal boutique, and even order online before you know it!

When given the opportunity to collaborate with the Beautiful Utah Scenery, equine and the talented stylings of Michelle Leo Events - You take it! This shoot was dreamt by Michelle, she came to me with an idea, and we ran with it. I'd always wanted to launch a colored gown, but never found the perfect colored fabric - so I made my own. Yes, this gown is hand-dyed by yours truly. If that wasn't enough, I outsourced to my incredibly talented partner and artistic husband to hand paint a layer of silk organza, to give the gown more depth and dimension, To really make it one-of-a-kind. This gown is a labor of love, hand beading on the bodice to create a western style yoke on delicate Lace. I hope you enjoy miss Mae, as much as we do!
while working on this shoot, i couldn't stop with just a gown. because after all, a bride can have many wardrobe changes on her special day (i had 4, but who's counting). the layla Robe - a piece for the bride to wear while she gets dressed for her big day, or something to slip into for a romantic evening.

Chantel Lauren is officially out of the house and on the road. Over the last 2 years, every gown was handmade in the Galloway home - but the demand grew bigger than the 4 walls we live under - so it was time to let go, and find a team of wonderful seamstress' (and seamsters) to help carry the load. But don't you worry, everything is still 100% handmade in the USA. While we were working in SF, we made time to see the sights and taste the wonderful treats!
