I’m having the hardest time picking photos for Liz’s post, because I love them all! So while I work on that, here’s a little preview…. Click on the photo to see her run up the stairs! Sooo awesome.
Brenn’s custom gown began as a dress purchased at a vintage shop in Europe. We reused the original lace from the skirt and part of the flounce on the bodice, and incorporated five other new coordinating laces or nets, and a new, fully nude colored lining to keep the dress light and sheer, yet completely modest. Brenn was a blast to work with! And something about her dress made me seriously homesick for the woods of Massachusetts, and reading Emily Dickinson poems on the lawn.
I’m so excited about these photos Raechel sent me from her wedding day by Heather Gibbons Photography
Here’s the recap of her dress design:
Raechel’s custom wedding gown is a beautiful soft white silk taffeta, with a rhinestone scoop neckline, fitted mid-length short sleeves, midriff band to the natural waist and a full ballgown. Her skirt features pleats in the front and a full, permanently bustled train. You can see more photos of her dress (by me) here, but if you ask me, her wedding day photographer did an awesome job capturing the dress!
Emrey’s Custom wedding gown is a bias cut silk charmeuse with nude colored silk cutouts on the sides and upper back. Cut-outs feature hand appliqued French Chantilly overlays. Her sweetheart neckline and strong, pleated shoulders add a touch of modern flair, as well as fluttery lace details on the neckline. Paneled side godets, and delicate buttons follow to the length of the train to complete the look, as well as a silk cathedral length veil.
Haley’s custom lace wedding gown is a floral Alencon with a dark ivory eyelet under layer. Her v-neck, short sleeve dress features a velvet ribbon, rhinestone buttons, and flower detail at the waistline.
I had a blast working with Haley, with her being a fellow Easterner.
She gets me in a way maybe some others don’t…
A special thanks to The Gardner Family for letting us use their beautiful yard for her photos!!!!
Brenna’s Custom Lace Wedding Dress is knee length with round neck, elbow length sleeves and a pleated lace skirt. Her bodice features sweetheart seaming with a peachy nude colored lining on the neckline and cap sleeve and her silk charmeuse sash has a beaded detail on the natural waist. A blusher veil and short petticoat complete her look.
