I'm so excited to share these photos. This pink number has been sitting in my closet for months, waiting for the perfect photoshoot to join, and it did just that. I didn't have the opportunity to attend the shoot, but what a tremendous job everyone did. Credit below. 👇

CUSTOM ORDER-MY SISTER'S WEDDING DRESS

My sister, Jes, recently eloped in San Francisco at City Hall. She came to me for her elopement dress that can be 'worn for other occasions'. Inspired by the popular self-portrait dress, I inserted ladder trim in between the bodice seams, and at the bottom hem.

The combination of the trim and the thick guipure lace was difficult to sew but was it rewarding to see it finished. We upgraded the dress with a unique 3D guipure lace. The dress is lined with a nude kona cotton that she matched with her heels and clutch. The pleating on the skirt gave us a a subtle bell shape that emphasized her waist.

Pretty with pink details. Staci styled her dress magnificently with velvet pink Betsey Johnson heels, dainty gold jewelry, crstyal belt, and a gorgeous crystal headpiece.

I added lace appliques to all the edges of the bodice instead of hemming for a more romantic look. Keeping the back very open and lining free was another way we kept this dress on team sexy.

Congrats Love birds Staci & Jose! 

CUSTOM ORDER-CHELSEA

So happy Chelsea contacted me before leaving Florida last year. We met and designed her dream dress. She is such a happy person, and very in love. I wanted that to reflect in her dress, and I think we did just that! 

Since her wedding was to be on the beach, lace sandals were a must! 

I also created her garter and her bridesmaids garters too. 

Fittings with Chelsea below.

The Big Day.

Silk chiffon, 50+ buttons, and endless amount of hand appliques came together beautifully as Chelsea Steinbauer floated elegantly down the aisle. She wore a light chantilly lace gown with a 6 pence sewn into the dress hem. We created a new design in which a section of the dress was able to flow in the coastal breeze for the ceremony, but was pinned and draped beautifully for an almost 2nd look at their reception. 

Congrats Chelsea and Joe Steinbauer!

Custom Order- Tannie Ivory Polka Dot Dress

I have worked with Tannie several times before she contacted me to create this 50's inspired dress. Mostly as a model, but more recently creating her other custom pieces from my Marie Antoinette collection. 

Tannie has created a fashion blog called Miss Bella Zena, that is her character when she's all dolled up,--how cute!

Custom Wedding Dress Order- Jahmi

Jahmi contacted me months ago with some inspiration pictures for her custom wedding gown. We exchanged almost 50 emails and came up with her perfect dress custom made in her measurements. 

After reviewing pictures and discussing details, and fabric, I sketched her dress. She approved and I began the process. 

Even though we did not meet in person, she was able to meet with her local tailor to get properly measured.

Sending pictures along the way, Jahmi was able to see her dress while it was getting made. 

Shipped her dress all the way to New Jersey.  Read her review after receiving her wedding dress below: 

"Received my dress and tried on-SO AWESOME! I am just so impressed with your work and so happy about the turn out. Everything came out so great! Will send pictures for sure!!!"

I will post her pictures later this year on this post, and pictures of her custom veil will be up soon.
