In bridal designer Sarah Seven’s fall '13 lookbook, southern belles get their chance to ring. This season, Seven drew her inspiration from vintage brides who walked down the aisle in the Crescent City. “I fell in love with New Orleans and its eclectic individuality, from its vintage European architecture to its effortless jazz-influenced coolness,” explains Seven, adding, “I wanted to channel a bygone era of sparkling excess without diverting too far from some of our favorite silhouettes."
