This custom feminine edgy wedding dress represents our bride Erin perfectly. When we heard one of our closest photographer buddies was tying the knot, we KNEW we had to work with his fiance! She came to us as a self-described “non-girly-girl,” who wasn’t sure what she wanted in a wedding dress. The one thing she did know was that she didn’t want to set foot in a traditional bridal shop.
Knowing her personal style, her killer physique and personality, we found an amazing geo-beaded lace to pair with the delicate and dreamy chiffon. We knew she would love the little details like the asymmetrical peplum and grosgrain waistband!
Since she didn’t know what she wanted, it was fun to create this custom feminine edgy wedding dress. What?! How could we enjoy working with someone who has no idea what she wants? Doesn’t that make the job harder? The answer to is no!
We have a knack for asking the right questions, letting us get to know each client which gives us creative possibilities. Once I know the type of silhouette each client is comfortable and confident in, we just hang out. We talk about their likes or dislikes, their favorite stores, their hobbies, whatever they like to do.
I knew Erin for years through her now-husband, As a world-renowned photographer who shoots for prominent publications, I had the honor of working with Luke for one of my first ever shoots!
Based on her requests, I designed a long and lean gown for Erin with a waist seam and fitting all around the bodice to create a shape that flattered her.
The bride opted for no train and loved the look and feel of silk chiffon. Next,, we gdecided on a Grecian style skirt. After, I added the asymmetrical peplum, giving the dress a feminine edge.
What makes this dress stand out and show Erin‘s personality are the asymmetrical elements of the peplum and the skirt as well as the beautiful embellished lace.
Creating the dress, we got a chance to play up some fun angles and lines wit her height and proportions. The end result flattered her figure so beautifully. Erin looked gorgeous on her wedding day!
