Have you heard? And For Love turned five and what a cool five years it's been! The "OG #coolbride" line of unconventional bridal wear has held a place atop our list of must-shop gowns, jumpsuits and other looks since splashing onto the scene in 2014. The collections, which tout dip-dyed hems, satin pants, rock n roll embellishments and a whole lot of style were tailor made by Angel Spendlove for the bride looking at something a little different for her big day.

To celebrate an epic run and a bright future, the brand rounded up 11 models and all the attitude bridal can muster in this stunning, industrial lookbook shoot. Keep scrolling for some serious style and Angel's words of wisdom:

Where do you find inspiration when designing for the & For Love bride?

I always start with a Muse. I always have a"cool girl" in mind every season and try to channel her vibe into how I'd style her. One year it was Kate Moss, one year it was my bestie in NYC, and this year for our 2018 season it's Rooney Mara.

Where do you see the line in another five years?

I'd love to have an amazing flagship store, though I'm still deciding what city I want that store to be! I'd also love to start doing more resort pieces and toying with the idea of footwear.

How can a bride incorporate personality and magic into her wedding day look without losing her personal style?

I think you need to stay true to yourself and not be a slave to trends. Choose a dress ( or great pants or a jumpsuit) because YOU love it and don't listen to anyone else opinion. Remember it's your day and not theirs. You'll feel the most magical if you're comfortable in how you look!
