This post is a long time coming since it has to do with a custom gown that I created in 2020 for a Spring 2021 bride. As we all know, 2020 and 2021 were difficult, turbulent, stressful, and unfathomable for everyone. But when it came to couples who were hoping to get married during those years, it was a never ending nightmare!
I actually had three brides/custom gowns I was working on in 2020. Two of those brides I've been able to post about since somehow, someway, they were able to sneak their weddings in during that year. It took lots of modifications, sacrifice, planning and re-planning, but they did it!
My third bride and her fiance' had their hearts set on a 2021 spring wedding in Telluride. And unfortunately, they just couldn't have the wedding of their dreams even by March of 2021. There were so many restrictions still in place, that they decided to postpone for another full year so that they could host the celebration with family and friends that they really wanted to have.
Isn't that amazing! You can see how she slipped her arms out of the straps to board/party, and has her arms inside the straps for the portraits/ceremony. They had an absolutely gorgeous wedding weekend (I was watching the forecast). The weather was bright and sunny so they could have their outdoor ceremony and take some gorgeous portraits. It also sounds like many of the guests arrived early so they could get some skiing in with the bride and groom ahead of the actual wedding day.
