I've been so anxious to share this project with you. This was my second bridal "original" this year and as a designer...it was a dream come true! Chloe really knows herself, so when it came to her bridal "gown", she actually wanted to be true to her style. She told me that she just doesn't wear dresses and didn't think that her wedding day should have to be any different. With that in mind, she came to me with some ideas back in February for a bridal jumpsuit.
I also found a 3D applique that I thought would tie in well on the bodice; it has little bitty pearls as well which Chloe loved. I took some of the small florals from the pink fabric and incorporated them into the design on both the front and back of the bodice.
If you notice the sleeves, I made them bell shaped from a net fabric with hundred of tiny pearls in an art deco pattern. I found the fabric locally and shared it with Chloe, hoping she'd fall in love with it as much as I did....and I was right!
I made Chloe a matching hair comb with white and pink florals. She wasn't quite sure how she was going to wear her hair, but wanted a little something for the big day.
Obviously, these photos were taken in my studio....but I'm looking forward to getting some from the actual wedding day. Chloe and Connor were married at the base of the Flatirons in Chattauqua Park in the presence of about 60 of their closest friends and family. A contemporary wedding, for this contemporary bride!
Chloe, thank you for letting me be a part of your special day, you were a peach to work. Cheers to a lifetime of happiness to the new Mr. and Mrs. Laws!
