This post is extremely personal as it is my wedding gown. I can say that designing my own dress was a privilege but also challenging at the same time. I had so many ideas buzzing in my head but I knew I wanted something timeless but also with unusual and unexpected detailing, my lace had silver gray undertones and had a gardenia floral design, a flower much beloved by the women of my family. I decided on a mermaid silhouette and an underlayer of silver silk satin. The top was an illusion bodice that had every piece of lace lovingly appliqued by hand. The ombre pearl beading was done in-house by our very talented beader and it really was one of my favorite elements of my dress. Another special piece was my headpiece created by Lorean Jewelry, he incorporated pearl flowers from my grans wedding headpiece to fashion something new for me, a treasure which i hope I can pass down through the generations.
