Here in St. Louis, it may be feel like a bone-chilling below zero in the middle of February. But grab your shades, sandals, swimsuits and sundress as Sydney's Closet goes on location in sunny, warm Puerto Rico to shoot our bestselling informal plus size wedding dresses.
Puerto Rico is the most romantic backdrop to photograph gowns I designed for brides bound for destination weddings. What bride and groom wouldn't fall fall in love with palm trees, aquamarine seas, white sandy beaches and picture-perfect azure skies?

Thanks to photographer Vanessa Velez for capturing the elegant lines of two of our best-selling designs on the gorgeous curvy model Ana "Anita" Garcia:
- "Circle of Love"
Dress: Style SC5032. I had in mind the classic Greek goddess when I designed this one-should chiffon gown with a simple rhinestone motif at the waist made up of concentric rhinestone circles. So chic!
- "Ready for Romance"
Dress, Sydney's Closet Style SC5021
Brides, I believe, should look just as gorgeous from the back as the front. That's way I designed the sheer netting back on this informal wedding dress. Couldn't resist sprinkling beads over the back for a very special detail.
