New York City Bride in Kim Kassas Couture and Made Bride | Julia + Maxime

May 11, 2022

The only thing that could match the grand beauty of these historic New York City locations is the luminous Julia, who stunned in head-to-toe couture sourced from all over the world. From the Greek line ‘Made Bride by Antonea’ pieces to her Kim Kassas Couture gown, she glowed against a handful of dramatic backdrops.

Janice Tan in the NYPL

For her first look, Julia wore a magnificent Made Bride gown, embellished with intricate embroidery and statement sleeves. The long clean lines of this piece worked beautifully at the New York Public Library, while her stunning crown – a floral number handmade by the Hong Kong-based Janice Tan – added a welcome splash of color.

Made Bride by Antonea in Central Park

Maxime joined us at Bethesda Terrace in Central Park. The romantic silhouette of this second Made Bride gown billowed out around the couple, and the clear light streaming through the layers of translucent fabric gave Julia this luscious glowing effect. The elaborate floral detailing on the dress truly lived up to the lavish setting.

Kim Kassas Couture in the Upper East Side

Julia’s third and final look saw her wandering the streets of the Upper East Side in a chic Kim Kassas Couture dress and kitten heels from the Italian Something Bleu. In a bold pivot from the romantic softness of the two previous gowns, this number featured sharp lines, dramatic asymmetry, and a daring thigh slit. It gave just the right amount of edge to this bridal look!
