Adriana & Fernando

My Bride Adriana started out as a referral by Wedding Planner Jeannie Ward, whom I have known now for a number of years. Jeannie brought Adriana to the Salon one day for an appointment as she had many questions with regards to creating her perfect gown. As we started talking, Adriana and I connected instantly. In fact, we even happen to live in the same city! Not only was she looking to have her gown made, but also her Maid of Honor and her three Bridesmaids. As we started to discuss all of the options available to her, she decided to also entrust me with the design of her two Flower Girls and her Daughter's dress as well.

Being a successful, proud Latina, Adriana wanted to incorporate something unique into the gowns that would be representative of her Mexican heritage. So, we used blue and gold in the Bridal Party which represents the bold, vibrant, lively colors that are so abundant in the artifacts, pottery, and paintings found throughout Mexico.

Adriana's gown was a pale pink chiffon over a white silk duchess satin underlay. I also designed her belt and we beaded it with Swarovski crystals. To top it off, we created the cathedral length veil and added smaller crystals to capture the light as the perfect accent piece.
We wanted all of the gowns to tie together, so I used the design of Adriana's gown as a starting point to design all of the other gowns. Each one of the Bridal party had the same rouching detail, and I even designed her Daughter's gown to be a mini version of Adriana's.
The ceremony itself was held at the Wayfarers Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes, and was captured beautifully by photographer George Carranza of Carranza Fotografia.
Congratulations Adriana & Fernando!
