Real Wedding: Kelly and David

Holy. Smokes. The 2014 bridal season has BEGUN. After taking maternity leave last year, followed a holiday break, I’m super lucky that as soon as I was ready to get back to work, the work was ready to start flowing. And I am so super excited about the projects I’ve got lined up! They are so good, you guys. By the way, I’m able to accept more custom orders than usual this year, so there are still available slots. If you know you want custom, call me right away, please! I’ve still got openings, but my schedule is practically booked solid with consultations. So … act now!

Speaking of custom, I’ve got some amazing pictures to show you of my beautiful bride Kelly and her super cute husband David on their wedding day. They are both so completely adorable, and Kelly is a serious knockout in her blush lace and tulle gown. Just look at these two:

Ohmigod I TOLD YOU. So completely sweet and adorable in every possible way. I had a really hard time narrowing down the images by T&S Hughes Photography to share here, because they are all so lovely and Kelly looks so happy. Lucky for us there are a bunch more on the photographers’ blog here. You must go check them out. Not only are they great wedding photos, but Kelly designed such a beautiful wedding – the color palette alone is so gorgeous (now that I think of it, all of my brides last year had really amazing-looking weddings – I always say I’m so lucky, and I totally mean it). Anyway, it’s always so exciting when a bride comes in and I just instantly know exactly what she’s imagining. That totally happened with Kelly – right down to the veil. I just knew. You know? And not only did I get to design this pretty gown, but I got to spend time with this incredibly sweet woman (and her super sweet mom). Like I said – I’m so lucky.

Kelly’s Blush Tulle Gown

Okay. I have all of ZERO MINUTES to write this blog post, but I miss you guys SOOO MUCH, and so I’m popping in with a completely scattered brain and burning-from-exhaustion eyeballs just to say ‘hi’.


And I also want to show you this:

It’s the dreamiest! And so is the beautiful and super sweet bride, Kelly. She’s just a tiny, wispy little thing – the kind of girl you want to pick up and twirl around – and you should see her in this dress! So feminine and lovely. She’s the cutest. And Kelly in this dress is just a burst of perfection. And wait until you see the matching veil! GAH!

I wish I could go on and on about the bride AND the dress, because I love them both so much, but I have to go cry while I watch Poppy get her 1 month baby shots.
