When I met my Bride Deborah and we started to chat about her gown and life in general, we discovered that she actually worked for my previous employer, BCBG, and so it ended up being a bit of fate that I create her gown. Working within the fashion industry herself, Deborah had a very solid and clear vision of how her dress should look and what we would need to incorporate. In fact, she actually had her own fabric that she had purchased prior, and a vintage gown which she wanted to use as the basis for her gown. So, we went about the process and came up with a design that was vintage, yet modern, fitted, and sexy, yet also classic and chic. The black sand washed jacquard came to life once we embellished it with beading that we hand applied here in the Salon, and gave her gown the shimmer and depth perfect to sparkle at her wedding. As she walked down the aisle, her wedding guests whispered that she looked just like a "Hollywood starlet"... and I definitely agree. In fact, Deborah & Tony even danced the tango as they looked like they walked right off the set of a classic Hollywood musical! Deborah's gown inspired me so much, that it stirred my imagination and has now set the tone for my next Collection, Spring 2013!
The wedding and reception were held right here in downtown LosAngeles at the Carondelet House,which was built in 1928 as an Italian Villa. The beautifully nostalgic spot was a perfect fit for Deborah & Tony's vintage inspired wedding. All of the their beautiful wedding and reception were wonderfully captured by docuvitae photography, which are also located right here in Los Angeles.
Congratulations Deborah & Tony!
