Carlene Worthington’s Bridals

Remember this sneak peak? I don’t usually do sneak peaks, but I could hardly contain my excitement for this dress.

Carlene’s gown is a natural white colored alencon lace, with natural, unbleached cotton lining, english net ruffled godets and rhinestone and feather accents. Sweetheart neckline with eyelash lace, cap sleeves and a triple layered cut edge veil.

Ok. Prepare for a major gush-fest. I’m going to gush about these photos and this dress and Carlene. The photos are by Amada Peterson.

This first shot sent me over the edge! I don’t usually get to attend photo shoots for my clients with other photographers, but I had a chance to be there and make sure Carlene’s dress was perfect for the photos. No joke, Amanda was probably only two minutes into the photo shoot, and this shot happened.

It made my heart sing. Super cheese-ball, I know, but, really. This is so close to the vision I had in my head when Carlene and I designed her dress, it made me feel as if my heart would burst. She just looks so beautiful.

Her beadwork is full of rhinestones, feathers, buttons, pearls, seeds and sequins. My favorite part is the beautiful opacity on the silk-covered rhinestones. The contrasting silk duppion sash is pretty great too. Her dress was a complete textural wonderland!

Thanks (gush) to Amanda for the breathtaking images. And thanks for including me in your wedding, Carlene!
