Leslie’s Custom Lace Wedding Gown

Ok World! I took these photos of Leslie’s dress in OCTOBER. Seriously. October. I can’t believe how time has flown by I can’t let another day go by with out sharing these photos!  Leslie is my beautiful sister-in-law.

And her dress is my favorite.

I put so much love into each dress that I make that sometimes I have a hard time letting go when I’m done. They are like my children. I know I’m not supposed to pick favorites. THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES!!!!! Enough gushing. On to the dress specs:

Leslie’s custom gown is an english net with applied venise lace appliques. (Side note, a million little lace appliques, I’m not exaggerating here. I took 5 different lace patterns and made them all into one amazing collage.) Her lining is a blush-y peach colored silk charmeuse. Her sweetheart neckline features daisy lace, with medallions on her pinched cap sleeves, that sweep onto her lower back highlighting her covered buttons and loop tape.  Her custom veil also features matching lace appliques and compliments her beaded headpiece.
