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.

Brenn’s Custom Bridal Gown Redesign

Brenn’s custom gown began as a dress purchased at a vintage shop in Europe. We reused the original lace from the skirt and part of the flounce on the bodice, and incorporated five other new coordinating laces or nets, and a new, fully nude colored lining to keep the dress light and sheer, yet completely modest. Brenn was a blast to work with! And something about her dress made me seriously homesick for the woods of Massachusetts, and reading Emily Dickinson poems on the lawn.

Annie’s Wedding Gown

Annie’s custom wedding gown is a combination of three laces, the palest taupe knit, taupe dotted net under skirt and a touch of ivory English net on the skirt. It’s a textural and visual wonderland. She was a complete joy to work with, and her outside photos evoke feelings of wood nymphs and fairy tales! Best wishes to Annie and Ryan for a fairytale wedding as well!
