Real Wedding: Camp Kawaga

I'm so happy to share these photos from Bridget's August 2013 wedding at Camp Kawaga in Wisconsin!  The bride visited me at my studio in Chicago, she was so sweet and had a specific idea of what she wanted her maids to wear, all in different styles and colors but to still remain cohesive.  The dresses were made in beige, nude, tea and pewter colors, and I love the way they turned out together!  Photography is by Madison, Wisconsin based Reilly Images.
I also received a lovely note from the bride which made my day!
Dear Amanda,
Thank you for all your work on the beautiful bridesmaids dresses!  You've been so great to work with. Your talent and professionalism are very appreciated.

Pastel Flower Girl Dresses

Pretty pastel sashes paired with white eyelet dresses are so lovely for flower girl dresses, perfect for a spring wedding! The Painted Flowers Dress can be made in white or ivory eyelet lace with any color from my 40+ color options. Above colors are sky blue, mint, pale yellow, light pink.  
Photo of my 6 month old wearing one of the dresses, it was a bit roomy (size 1Y) but the sash helps with the fit and she should be able to wear again this spring and summer just in time for wedding season!

Real Wedding: Tea and Flowers Wedding Dress

Happy day! Check out these wonderful photos from Amy's July 2013 wedding by Portland, Oregon based Bryan Aulick Photography. Amy is wearing the Tea and Flowers dress from my collection in a floral dot tulle version.

A note from the bride:

Amanda thank you sooooo much!! I absolutely adore my dress. Your work is exquisite. The timing of its arrival was also incredible as I received the dress only a few hours after learning the supreme court's ruling on DOMA and Prop 8. My partner and I will now be able to legally marry in California with federal recognition of our marriage. I can't express how much this means to me. Thank you again so very much.
