I just love the dreamy and timeless vision that beautiful bride Sharon Lombardi radiates in these sun-swept photos by Harrison Long. Wearing “Clara,” the Art Deco inspired drop-waisted lace sheath with jewel-encrusted silk belt and neckline, Sharon is a vision that F. Scott Fitzgerald might have conjured.
“Wearing the Clara gown made me feel so sophisticated and chic,” said Sharon, who married Tom Lombardi on October 10, 2009 in the romantic and serene setting of the Falkner vineyard which sits on the crest of a 1500 feet deep valley.
“Our female guests could not stop asking questions about my gown – where I got it and who the designer was – they all said how much they adored my dress! Even some of the male guests who said they could not normally tell one wedding gown from another commented that my dress was so unique and memorable. I was told later on that my dress caught the light of the setting sun just perfectly so that I “sparkled” on my entire walk down the aisle….”
Sharon purchased her gown from the Beverly Hills flagship salon with the help of her mother and salon manager Cynthia Pinot.
“Cynthia provided the best advice and excellent service. I had a great experience and have since recommended another bride to Claire Pettibone and she also purchased a gown there for her upcoming nuptials this August! Thank you, Claire, for making the most beautiful gown I have ever worn. The photos took our breath away. We are beyond thrilled with Harrison’s artistry and how beautifully he captured the magic of our wedding day.”
