Real Wedding: Mint Ruffle Bridesmaid Dress

 So happy to share these lovely photos from Megan's July 2013 wedding!  The bridesmaids and flower girl wore dresses in mint cotton in various styles from my collection. Love the cowboy boots paired with the dresses to this outdoor country wedding!  
A note from the bride which truly touched my heart:

On behalf of my bridesmaids and myself we wanted to thank you very much for making beautiful, amazing quality and gorgeous dresses for Josh & I's wedding! The girls loved the dresses and are very excited that they can wear them again! I attached some pictures for you but most of all I wanted to thank you for all of your hard work in producing the dresses. You can truly tell that this is what you love to do and it shows through your work!

 The mother of the bride wore the Painted Roses dress in green teal!

Real Wedding: Fairy Tale Gown, White Lace

Bride Tara was so wonderful to work with, she visited me at my Chicago studio to order the Fairy Tale Gown in white lace and cotton. We did a couple of fittings on her gown to get everything just right.  She is one of the most positive, sunny brides I have had the pleasure to work with! Tara got married at the Secret Garden Honky Tonk BBQ in Chicago, August 2013.  Photography is by Photo I.D.

A lovely note from the bride (made my day!):

I wanted to write you and let you know what an absolute hit my dress was on our big day! So many people commented on how lovely it was, and how they were blown away by the design, the fit, the lace, the name it, it got a compliment! One of the best came from my little 4-year-old pal Natalie, "You look like a swan and you look pretty." You really can't beat that!
