Real Wedding: Plum Bridesmaid Dress

 Love these photos from Kristen's August 2014 wedding in Portland, Oregon!  The bride contacted me wanting the L'Amour ruffle v-neck style for her bridesmaids to wear but wanted a custom color in a deep berry color.  After sourcing several options the bride decide to go with this dark plum shade which worked out great for this beautiful outdoor wedding! Photography is by Amber Anderson.

Elephants and Flowers

Last month we visited the botanical gardens in Chicago and thankfully the spring flowers are in full bloom, really beautiful gardens! After such a long winter this was what we needed to see. It was so refreshing walking through such a gorgeous display of beauty, definitely can't wait to return.  Lulu wore this grey Elephant dress I made for her in cotton with an eyelet trim, we paired the dress with an aqua color cardigan and some striped grey and white leggings.  






 After the Botanical Gardens we strolled over to the zoo and saw the Giraffes!
