Samantha’s Custom Wedding Gown


Samantha’s wedding gown is an ivory english net with hand applied embroidery and hand beaded details. Her dress features a v-neck, natural waistline, and a super soft skirt with huge godets and a ridiculous amount of fabric at the hem-line, that adds up to a soft-flowy train, full of sequined appliques in silver and iridescent tones. One of my favorite dresses!!!IMG_5005

Also, Kohanna just happens to be my newest sister-in-law! Welcome to the family!!!

Raechel’s Wedding Day Photos

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!

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!

Her dress is an off-white tafetta, with beaded bodice, a modified sweetheart neckline,  pleated waistline, full gathered skirt, rhinestone buttons and pockets.

Yes! Pockets! The bride also had two veils, one long and formal, and a shorter cage veil for fun!
