Whitney’s Custom Lace Wedding Dress

Whitney’s custom lace wedding dress features 3/4 length sleeves, a round neckline and pieced lace. Her seamed gown accentuates her curves with delicate floral Venise trim with alencon eyelash lace on her neckline as well as her fingertip length veil. I love doing gowns with knit linings. Seeing a bride be able to actually move in her gown is fun. Check out the photos of Whitney all curled up in that cozy chair. So awesome.

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!!!!

Christy’s Gown Redesign

Christy brought me her dress, wanting a few modifications. I changed her square neckline to a sweetheart neck, and added beaded alencon lace to build up into a queen-anne neckline.  I also added buttons, and lace applique’s to the back of the hem, adding a train where there was none.

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!
