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!

Meegan 12.5.2009 SLC, UT

Every dress that I make is special to me, but this one was extra special… my beautiful sister Meegan.

It was such an honor to make her gown, and to be a part of her wedding day.  These are some photos I took for her bridal portraits. I’ll post some of her actual wedding day as soon as her photographer gets them to me!!! She had awesome green and gray bridesmaid dresses as well!

Meegan’s dress was a silk /cotton blend with silk gauze  and origami pleated details on the train. Sweetheart neckline, empire waist, mermaid cut skirt. Large clear and antique rhinestones on the neckline and train, and bustline pleating detail. (Which was lovingly referred to as “the spirit fingers” through-out the design process – can you see it? Cross your hands in front of your chest and wiggle your fingers…)

She also had an elbow length, cut-edge half-width veil, and wore fabulous green shoes from ninashoes.com.

Meegan, you couldn’t possibly be more beautiful. Congratulations!
