7 Pnina Tornai Wedding Dresses that Sofia Vergara Would ROCK!

Okay, so the news broke yesterday that Sofia Vergara & Joe Manganiello are engaged and honestly, I couldn’t be happier for them!

They are a HOT couple and they will surely have a gorgeous wedding. I chose Pnina Tornai for Ms. Vergara because of her rocking body, and let’s talk about her butt for a second…she always wears amazing gowns on the red carpet- she HAS to showcase her “assets” on her wedding day. Check out my picks, courtesy of Kleinfeld Bridal!

A Modern Vintage Styled Shoot

Antiques, exposed brick and raw, natural beauty were the inspiration for my Modern Vintage Shoot. Lace dresses and fluffy tulle skirts were the perfect pairing and gowns came pouring in from Kleinfeld Bridal, Concord Wedding Center, Matthew Christopher and Kimberly Pixton Couture.

The City Club, a local venue here in Concord, NC was the first stop in our photo shoot. The approximate capacity is around 600-1000 and this venue is simply beautiful. I am a huge fan of exposed brick, and this venue was simply stunning.


Items shown in the City Club Images are as follows:
-Allure Bridals “9051
(This dress can be found locally at Concord Wedding Center)
-Tuxedo from Jim’s Formal Wear at Concord Wedding Center
-Bouquet by Linda Gibson
-Lighted backdrop by Concord Wedding Center
-Jewelry borrowed from Pixton Couture
Pnina Tornai “32933053” (Can be found only at Kleinfeld Bridal)
Pixton Couture “Cymbeline”
-Cake by Sweet Boutique Bakery
Claire Pettibone “Alchemy” (Gown provided by Kleinfeld Bridal)
Pixton Couture “Demoiselle”
-Table Design by Linda Gibson
-Design & Decor by Concord Wedding Center
Matthew Christopher “Juliet”

The next location we shot at was an old warehouse. It’s chippy paint and exposed brick were a charming touch that was so perfectly contrasted with the gowns.


Items shown in the Warehouse Images are as follows:
Pixton Couture “Marianne”
Pixton Couture “Demoiselle”
-Jewelry provided by Pixton Couture

The Depot is a “pickers paradise” when it comes to all things antique, old, and shabby chic- a perfect setting for my shoot. I found a diamond in the rough when deciding to set one of the locations at The Depot at Gibson Mill.


Items shown in the Depot at Gibson Mill Images are as follows:
