As a winter bride myself, I'm partial to a winter wedding.  So, when Katie approached me about making some modifications to her dress for her December wedding, I was thrilled to help.  She had tried on a rhinestone belt at the bridal shop and liked the look, but not the price.  Unlike the traditional belt, she actually wanted the embellishments sewn to her gown mainly due to the corset back on her gown.

After chatting some more about her vision for her wedding, I started 'window shopping" on the internet to find just the right pieces to make her a one-of-a-kind look.  I was so tickled when I found a beautiful trim, and even more delighted when I actually found something when I googled "rhinestone snowflakes"!   I chatted with Katie about my ideas to use the trim, snowflakes and pearls for just the right winter inspired belt and shared pictures as my ideas took shape (we were working from two different states).  It was a great collaboration.



I laid out the trim and began strategically placing the snowflakes and pearls.  I was so pleased with the way it turned out.  She looked absolutely stunning!

I was also honored to make her garter set, two flower girl baskets, and a haircomb that she wore during the reception.  I continued to use the pearl and snowflake theme throughout all three pieces. So much fun!

It snowed the night before the wedding adding a beautiful winter wonderland feel to the day and despite the frigid temps....Katie, her groom, and the wedding party braved the cold for some unique outdoor photos that only a winter wedding can have.   Congrats!
