My bride Hilary is a Pasadena native and was searching for a local salon, when she discovered me. During her first appointment, Hilary's mother was in attendance and assisted her with trying on various gowns from several of my Collections. The gown that Hilary finally decided upon was actually one which she had shown her Father, and one that he said he could envision her in on her special day. It was a gown that I fabricated with ivory alencon lace over champagne charmeuse from my Fall 2010 Collection. Hilary and I always had a wonderful and fun time at her fittings, which usually included her niece that would always comment that Hilary looked just like a princess. Her wedding and reception were held at the gorgeous Lincourt Vineyards in the Santa Barbara area, and as you can see from the photos she looked beautiful and glowed with happiness. In fact, Hilary sent me a note thanking me for her dress saying that it was just amazing and surpassed anything that even her fiance, Andrew, could have dreamed of!
On a side note, Hilary was surprised to discover that an old friend of hers, Kelly, was also one of my brides, and that they were actually coming to fittings around the same time! It just goes to show you how intimate and small the world truly is...
The beautiful images of the wedding and stunning location were captured by once like a spark photography.
Congratulations Hilary & Andrew!
