This autumn, we've had the honor of working with so many delightful brides to make their dream wedding gowns come to life.
It's one of the greatest pleasures of our job to get to know each bride's personality, loves, and inspirations.
Some truly magnificent gowns have passed through our studio doors and down the isle these past few months. Each is unique, and every one has a special place in our hearts. We felt these beautiful brides and their gowns should be showcased again, now that their wedding days have passed. Without further ado, here come the Autumn 2015 Jill Andrews Brides!
Krysta's vision for her custom wedding gown was crystal clear from the start. Her dress's dramatic mermaid shape fit and flattered her incredible figure, and its lace bodice couldn't have been any prettier!
Caroline was the third bride in her family to wear her wedding gown! The stunning confection was worn for the first time in 1953 by her grandmother, then by her mother in the 80s. After multiple wears and six decades, the dress needed some TLC. We restored and refreshed the gown, and altered it to fit Caroline like a dream.
Kristyn is a fantastic hair & makeup artist. We've worked with her on many projects, so we were thrilled when she came to us with a somewhat unconventional request... a white satin motorcycle jacket! Needless to say, Kristyn is super cool. Her jacket was the talk of the studio for months!
Carter used to work here at Jill Andrews Gowns, so making her wedding dress was special for everyone! Her gown was straight out of a fairy tale, with a sweeping overskirt and fabric flowers and butterflies light as air sprinkled about.
Barbara's wedding gown was another restoration project – it was her mother's dress! It's always a treat working with a family, hearing the history and stories contained in a wedding dress.
Maria's custom wedding gown was inspired by A Midsummer Night's Dream. Every feature of her dress is soft and romantic, from the watteau back and draped shoulder detail to the effervescent lace at the bodice.
Analeigh's wedding gown is simply, in a word, exquisite. The classic shape flattered her beautifully, and was brought to life by the phenomenal French lace she chose to cover the entire dress.
As the end of the year approaches, we love to look back and appreciate the incredible projects and people we've been so lucky to work with. We are thankful for every bride, every dress, every detail, every stitch.
