After a mere three years in the industry, Alexandra O'Neill's luxury label has carved a devoted fanbase for what she refers to as "celestial romanticism." Markarian, named after a group of galaxies, offers bridal looks inspired by all things mystical and its gowns have the same magnetic appeal. Made in New York, the clothes are impeccably crafted using decadent fabrics. With the dreaminess of the cosmos, O'Neill's dresses are, in a word, pretty. The feminine, ethereal gowns can make any bride feel magical on her wedding day.

Markarian Spring 2020

The Markarian Spring 2020 collection brings a more structured take on wedding dresses. Fanned ruffle bodices, long peplums, and billowy sleeves add sculptural dimensions to otherwise soft materials. The collection, inspired by a traipse along an Italian villa, is filled with delicate feminine details like a subtle drape on a strapless sheath, an effortless cowl neckline, or ruched bodices. The collection also includes delicious floral options for guests or members of the bridal party.
