Rosanna & Andy
My Bride Rosanna came to me with her sister Angie, whom I have posted about previously, as a referral from the Jeweler across the street. She wanted a gown that would fit into the earthy location of her wedding, Mammoth Mountain. Typically, most of my gowns are a variation of silk, from formal duchess satins to lighter weight silk charmeuse, but for Rosanna, we decided to incorporate linen with silk. For the body of the gown, we used a fine linen and then used a silk shantung to sculpt the floral appliques for the embellishment.
Her gown was organic, earthy, very flowing, and still sexy, perfect for an outdoor wedding in the mountains!
Rosanna also wanted all of her Bridesmaids and Groomsmen to tie into her gown and the the Grooms suit, so we made all of the dresses for the ladies, and the vests and pants for the men, including the little ring bearer. Since linen is a great fabric to hold color, we were able to create a few different swatches with color variations that Rosanna was able to choose from before we started any of the fabrication.
It was truly an honor to have been chosen by both sisters to have been such an integral part in both of their weddings. And now, both Rosanna & Angie, own not one but two truly couture gowns!
All of the love and location was captured by photographers from the Pros.
Congratulations Rosanna & Andy!
