This was Julia's dream wedding gown and a project we worked on closely together.   The
dress was light and airy, perfect for a beach wedding. It was completed in February 2010.

Devin's wedding veil is as beautiful as she.  It is made of ivory
tulle.  I scalloped the edges and then added hundreds of
gleamed in both the sun and candle light.  September 2011

Devin chose to purchase her gown.  I was able to expertly
bustle it in 2 layers so she could comfortably dance the night
away.  
I also made a light bolero jacket
which gave her appropriate
cover for the church.  The
jacket perfectly matched the
Ivory color of her dress.
One of the greatest features of this gown is the
removable fishtail.  This bride had no trouble dancing
the night away with her handsome groom.

Krista and her bridal party were
such a pleasure to work with.  I felt
honored to be invited to her
wedding.


The fishtail is made from several different
colors and textures of nylon tulle.
The open back has cascading faux
pearls trimmed out with the scalloped
edge of the embellished lace.
Open sleeves were made for an extra
amount of coolness.  The split in the
sleeves is trimmed with tiny faux pearls.  
The scalloped edge is also at the bottom
of the sleeves

Jessica..October 2014
A strapless ball gown in ivory was
designed for the occasion.
Jessica's 2 layer veil was made from the
same shimmer tulle as the gown. A
scalloped edge was made then hand
beaded.
The shrug is made of beaded
Alencon lace sewn to the same
Free hand machine embroidery was
added to the top and sash then beaded
with Swarovski crystals and glass beads.
Jessica wanted to add a long black
sash to the gown which was such a
great idea. The black and ivory
came together very nicely.
The gown is made of several
layers of shimmer tulle over butter
soft charmeuse. A full petticoat
underneath gave the gown it's
flare.

This convertible Mermaid gown is made

Cathy's 2 layer veil was made of white tulle trimmed
with scalloped lace attached to a purchased
headpiece
.
The body of the veil is made of shimmer tulle.  Instead machine scalloping the edges I used a
delicate scalloped lace.
Appliqués were cut from corded lace and sewn on
the tulle.  Hot set crystals were applied to the
appliqués as well as the peaks of the scallops.
Suzanne wanted a knee length veil with scalloped edges and she expressed to me that she liked
lace.  She did not want beading on the veil but opted for Swarovski crystals
