The Making Of A Wedding Dress: Emlyn

When Emlyn came to me in November, I knew hers was a dress to document. Not only did Emlyn have a great vision for her dress, but she was had a bun in the oven! By the time of her wedding, she was 5 months pregnant. I've never seen a more radiant bride. 

Emlyn started out with a wonderful concept- long sleeves, lace, high collar, not trying to hide her baby bump. I started sketching, Mia pulled the perfect English lace- peachy white with a silver metallic motif. I'd had that lace for over a year! It was just waiting for Emlyn. 

I added a last minute sparkle ruffle to the collar, sleeves and underskirt, it needed that extra decadence. Plus a vintage shoe buckle! I am waiting with bated breath to see the wedding photos taken by the incredible Lindsay Hite of Readyluck. I will be sure to share them with you! 

Tropical Escape

It's cold. Here's some warmth. 

This shoot, done in our disguised studio, gives a divine and much needed escape into the tropical.

Lauren wears an asymmetrical apple green gown inspired by Charles James. The bride I made it for said she wanted to look like a rock star at her wedding. 

Molly wears the ballet pink Iron Heart bodice and 16 Ton Organza skirt from my Collection along with the perfect blush organza sash. 

I hope these photos provide a delicious reprieve from this icy February.

I Can't Resist A Winter Wonderland

In case you missed it, or if you live somewhere besides the Northeast of the US, I'll fill you in- it's been snowing. I love the snow for many reasons. One of them is it makes a good excuse for an impromptu photoshoot. We set out to the back of our atelier- me to take photos from the cocoon of my coat and Mia to blithely freeze in our 16 Ton skirt, a sequined cashmere sweater and her prized possession- a rabbit fur hat from a Parisian flea market. 

If you like Mia's skirt, you can order your own! just click on the collection tab in the menu.
