I can’t say enough how fun it was to work with Catie, and have her awesome Mom at almost every fitting.

A few weeks ago, Catie dropped off some fabulous prints by Jonathan Canlas, and I must say, I was speechless, giddy, and ridiculously nervous all at the same time. Sometimes, it can be downright awkward sending a dress off with a bride when it’s finished. It’s like sending my baby (made of zippers and thread, of course), who is all grown up, off to college. Heart wrenching and thrilling at the same time. A splendid mix of emotions.

Getting photos of my dresses back from their respective photographers can be equally thrilling! As much as I’d like to say having a custom gown made for your wedding is the best thing ever, nothing, nothing compares to having beautiful, artful, emotional photos capturing a beautiful bride in a beautiful gown, during her happiest moments on her wedding day!

Stacey Oakland, CA wedding 5.29.2010

Pearl taffeta, scoop neck, natural waist with self-fabric applied waist band. Bubble hemmed Alencon lace on circle cut ball gown skirt. Ivory elbow length veil with Alencon lace scallop.

Stacey had me embroider her parent’s monogram and wedding date as well as her monogram and wedding date on the inside of her gown, in blue. Such a beautiful personal touch!
