This summer has been … eh … stressful. I accepted a lot of work at the beginning of the year and have definitely stretched myself thin trying to get it all completed. So, whatever, I’ve been pretty worn out. But at the same time, it’s been a summer of weddings, and I’ve been so incredibly fortunate to be a part of them and to form relationships with all of these wonderful women and their families and friends. And I don’t say that lightly. There isn’t a single woman who walks through the door who I don’t become emotionally attached to in some way. Keith and I were married so recently that I can very much relate to their excitement and nerves, and they are always so dang cute and sweet, I just want to squeeze them. So even though I’m frazzled and overworked, it’s all very much worth it when I see them light up at the final fitting and know that they are completely in love. And then they go and get married and send me pictures like these!
And that’s just the icing on the cake. Beautiful Christina chose the Lierre gown and Velvet Blossom headband (with added blusher) from my Fall ’11 collection for her wedding last month, and she could not have looked more elegant. I mean, look at her! I cried at her fitting and I cried again when I saw the pictures. SO SWEET.
I can’t tell you how cool it is to see so many brides try on the same dress and each one look so completely different – especially with this gown. It’s really distinctive on its own, but it transforms into something even more unique on every single woman. It’s definitely one of my faves. And I’m so happy and proud that Christina chose it for her wedding – she made the most perfect bride.
