Christina’s Wedding Pics!

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.

Custom Foundation

A few things:

1. Dean found the cooooolest rug for the studio and I’m dyyyying over it. I can’t wait for it to be delivered on Saturday. Big time game changer. Also, I can’t tell you how awesome it is to just show up at a carpet outlet, throw down a credit card and know I got the best dang rug in the place. You guys should seriously hire her – this experience is changing my life.

2. I worked out this morning and I may never walk again. It was INTENSE. And also sort of addictive – if I could hold myself upright, I would want to go back right now.

3. This awesome thing:

The foundation for a gown you’ll get to see very soon. Isn’t it so pretty? I love the foundations so much and they really make the dresses. When sh*t looks this good on the inside, you know the outside is going to be GOOD. Want one for yourself? Drop me a line, yo.
