My bride Molly and I were first introduced when she came into the salon with her friend to view the gowns we had. Molly instantly fell in love with Samarah from my Fall 2012 collection. After trying on a few of my other gowns, Molly needed more time to decide if Samarah was the right dress for her or if she wanted to try a different look. A few months past by and I did not hear anything from Molly until she called me at the salon to inform it was time to get the process started on her Samarah gown.
To make her gown a bit more personalized, we added delicate ¾ length lace sleeves and created a mid-back “V’ shaped neckline. We kept the dress at mid-knee, although she had considered a longer length when she first tried it on a few months back. The Samarah gown and Molly’s personal style/personality complimented each other fantastically! To top off her remarkable look we created a classic pillbox hat out of the same Dupioni silk as the under dress. Molly suggested the hat have a bow on the side to add a bit of detail, along with French netting that would be used in place of a veil.
Molly and Stephen’s wedding took place at the historic Camarillo Ranch in the beautiful Ventura County. The open space and outdoor scenery was the perfect match for their rustic, fun, and unforgettable wedding. The bride and groom along with their wedding party performed a “flash mob” dance for their guest to mix of their favorite songs. The incredible Jen, of Fondly Forever Photography, captured their special day and festive reception.
