Michelle & Chip
Michelle was referred to me by my dear friend Farrah. Michelle had been trying on gowns at many other boutiques and came to me only two months away from her wedding. Through her searches, she discovered that alencon lace was her ideal selection for the fabric of her gown. But not just any alencon lace would do, she found a scalloped lace from another Designer to be the perfect pattern for her dream gown. I designed her gown keeping in mind the lace she desired. As time was of the essence, I immediately took the challenge to find a similar lace to the one Michelle wanted. But, due to the short lead time, we kept running into delivery issues. As Michelle and I met various lace vendors, we came up with the solution to combine three different laces to create one...and so we did.
In the end, Michelle was so in love with the final gown that she simply could not believe how we took three different laces and created a beautiful dress to look like one...the one! In her words, even more beautiful than the original gown that she had first envisioned.
The wedding was captured wonderfully by Isabel Lawrence Photographers .
