Dawn's Custom Dress

Let me just start by saying -- Dawn is the best, period. I've followed her work online for many years and was thrilled when she asked to collaborate on her wedding dress. She is my ideal bride! We pieced together two of my existing dress styles (Elsie & Lucille) then tweaked it to Dawn's preference. Doesn't it look just darling? Best wishes to this sweet couple!

Sample Sale!

Major sample sale happening now in my bridal store! I'm moving away from selling standard sizes and into custom measurements -- so everything in the online shop is 75-80% off! Includes all wedding and party dresses!


Kat's Custom Dress

I've had the opportunity to work one-on-one with a few brides this year. The experience reminds me so much of making my own wedding dress with my mom and it feels refreshing to be a part of that process with other people. 

Kat came to me with a vision of pink for her wedding day and a touch of sparkle! We went with a very subtle silk pink fabric for her strapless "Belle" dress and paired it with a netted, sparkly, off the shoulder-type cardigan. The combo was gorgeous. She also asked me to make a sweet flower dress for her daughter -- which we did from a peach cotton fabric that featured a peter pan collar. Perfection!

Doesn't Nicole look stunning in the Lucille dress?


Glitter + Grit

I'm very excited to announce a new retailer that will be carrying my dresses! Glitter + Grit in Pittsburgh, PA just opened up and I am so happy to be a part of this new bridal shop. I love Erin's vision and purpose for the space and hope that if you are in the area will stop by and try on a few dresses.

The Big Day Recap

I had a great time at The Big Day event this past weekend in Asheville, NC. It's not every day that I do a wedding show and its defintely not every day that I'm able to talk to so many people face to face about my work. So it was awesome to hear feedback in person. Here's a peek at my booth...


The Big Day

Look out Asheville, I'm participating in a local wedding fair that is shaping up to be pretty awesome. I'll have both my dress collection and photography goodness to check out and I'd love to meet you! So feel free to stop by my booth on March 30th at the Asheville Art Musuem. Tickets are available on The Big Day website.
