Justin Alexander Warshaw’s wedding was part of the inspiration for his latest gown collection, titled Of Dreams. Ethereal, enchanting and romantic, the dresses in the Justin Alexander Signature Spring/Summer 2024 collection are bursting with 3D florals, texture, architectural seaming and exposed boning.
“The collection describes the euphoria of how I felt [on my wedding day],” says Justin. He wanted to, “bottle that feeling and create beautiful gowns off the inspiration of that amazing day.”
Justin’s magical wedding to Kelsey was fit for a storybook.
The marriage chapter of their love story begins with New Jersey nuptials. Justin and Kelsey invited their parents and Justin’s sister and her boyfriend to Westfield for their micro-wedding ceremony. “We thought it was a great opportunity to do something small and intimate,” says Justin. Justin’s sister officiated the ceremony in Westfield’s Mindowaskin Park. “She just spoke beautifully,” he says. The day ended with lunch at local favorite Addams Tavern.
Soon after, the couple had their destination wedding at Castello di Celsa, a medieval garden and castle in Italy.
As a newlywed, Justin says he can now relate to brides on a new level. “To understand what you’re feeling when you’re going through [the planning process] allows me to better help a bride as she’s searching for her dress,” he says.
Justin Alexander encompasses five brands—Justin Alexander, Justin Alexander Signature, Adore by Justin Alexander, Lillian West and Sincerity Bridal—which span a range of styles and price points. The gowns are sold in more than 60 countries through 2,000 retailers worldwide, including several in New Jersey, such as Castle Couture.
