Dress Designer (clockwise from top left): Theia 

Theia – The White Collection by Theia is ideal for the bride who loves the feminine details of traditional wedding gowns, yet seeks a modern edge in form and function. Theia even designed a sequined and hand-embroidered sweatshirt for the bride that really wants to make a statement. We also saw gorgeous silk organza, delicate touches of gold, satin petals, and a ballgown with hidden pockets! Now, how genius is that?
