Christos's signature ethereal designs were updated with an antique twist this bridal runway season: light-as-air tulle was complemented with delicate lace layers. Both simultaneously vintage and modern, the dresses on the Christos Spring 2015 runway are fit for the whimsical, as well as the classically romantic bride.

Christos also sent fresh new colors down the runway including pale blush, mocha, and vanilla — a warm and welcomed change for the label. The slightest bit of sparkle also made its way onto the three-dimensional floral embellishments creating a subtle glam effect. Like Amsale, delicate, barely-there illusions added to the overall gentle elegance of the entire collection.

Like beloved runways past, Christos's collection remained as fluid as ever. The cascading ballerina-like tulle skirts, dainty floral appliqués, and modern illusion necklines were fresh and feminine.

"With a gentle nod to the past but fresh with the spirit of today, this spring the Christos bride embraces an updated take on modern vintage," the design house's inspiration statement said. "Delicate laces, many with novel details and patterns, layer effortlessly, with tulle and point d'esprit breathing fluidity and dimension into the body. Embellishments are equally charming as miniature florets sparkle gently as they cascade down silhouettes, creating a hint of antique-chic."

Watch the entire collection gently glide down the runway in our exclusive video above and don't forget to browse Amsale's complete Spring 2015 wedding dress collection in our slideshow.

One Couple’s Modern Winter Wonderland Wedding at Studio450 in New York City

Erica, 30, and Josh, 29, were high school sweethearts, but meeting as teens didn't stop the couple from dating for more than ten years before Josh popped the question. At 7 a.m., Josh tied the ring around their dog's paw, then let her loose on the bed to wake Erica up as he got down on one knee. "We are private, simple people," says Erica. "I wouldn't have changed a thing about our proposal!" Once Erica was fully awake, they met their families for brunch to celebrate the good news.

The couple, who both have December birthdays and got engaged in February, knew they wanted an ethereal winter wonderland celebration for their wedding. "Incorporating elements of snow, pine cones, and bare branches felt right for both of us," Erica says. On December 22, 2012, they invited 200 guests to join them at Studio450 in New York. The panoramic views, as well as lots of frosty white décor, filled the room with touches of their favorite season.

Erica turned to Pinterest for inspiration. "I didn't have to fill my tiny studio apartment with stacks of magazines!" she says. How Pin-worthy is this shot of her wedding band in a tray of mouthwatering macarons?

The bride's lacy Louboutins were a serious score from an invite-only sample sale. "Leighton Meester previously wore them to the Teen Choice Awards!" says Erica. "She's the one who put the heel-cushions in. I left them there because they fit perfectly! Thanks Leighton!" Erica did make one big change to her footwear, though. She removed the oversized flowers on the toes and replaced them with shimmering brooches.

All of the bouquets featured white, ivory, and soft, dusty roses. The flower girl, in a nude tulle gown, had a moment of drama on her way down the aisle. "She dropped her basket, and was sad that the petals had spilled," says Erica. "Her brother tried to help by kicking the basket down the aisle to spread out the petals, which ended up putting the flower girl in tears. But I wouldn't change a thing!"

The winter-inspired chuppah featured handmade garlands of orchids and carnation pomanders draped over bare branches and birch poles.

Erica's father accompanied her down the aisle to the traditional Jewish ceremony. She wore a layered tulle Christos gown with a bejeweled belt that she made herself. For the ceremony, she topped her gown with a tulle jacket borrowed from her cousin. Josh wore a classic tuxedo. "The bowtie was for me!" says the bride.

The couple used a gorgeous oversized mirror instead of traditional escort cards. Guests' names and table numbers were written in white calligraphy.

A combination of rectangular and square tables filled the room. Floating candles, birch vases, and lush white flowers topped the tables. The couple served seasonal foods in a buffet format to keep things moving. "The sushi station was a highlight. I'm a huge fan, so we had sushi chefs rolling from cocktail hour until the end of the night!" say Erica.

Erica always wanted a dessert bar, but couldn't bring in sweet treats from around New York City because she and Josh used a Kosher caterer. Her caterer surprised her by going heavy on the desserts, serving up monogrammed macarons, cake pops, chocolates, and more.

The couple said "I Do" just before their birthdays and the holidays, so they spent the days after their wedding at home with family and friends. "I slept for two days straight!" says Erica. Her advice for brides-to-be is to go with your gut. "If you feel strongly about something, do it. Remember: this is your day."

It's impossible not to get whisked away by the romance of Christos's ethereal aesthetic. For the design house's Fall 2014 wedding dress collection, the label's creative minds focused on creating "fluid and airy silhouettes" with "feather like layers of tulle, point d'esprit, and lace." These softened shapes couldn't exist, of course, without gentle sheer ruched bodices and sophisticated lace hems. More refined details like classic fabric buttons and flirty hand-crafted silk flowers were also worn by models on the runway.

There was something effortlessly ethereal about Christos' Spring 2014 wedding dress collection. Our favorite dress, a silk chiffon gown with a hand-embroidered floral bateau illusion neckline, floated down the runway with grace and ease. The lightweight fabric makes it perfect for a ceremony in the sand while the floral appliqués give it a pop of personality. Any bride would beam in this goddess-worthy creation.
