Dress Stories: Custom Lace Wedding Dresses Part 1 December 14 2014

We've been creating a lot of custom one-of-a-kind dresses for our brides and thought we would share a few. 

 

Custom wedding dress for Eva Stein.

Inspired by the glamour of 1930s Old Hollywood screen sirens.  Champagne Chantilly lace is layered over vintage turquoise silk shantung in a sophisticated fit-and-flare trumpet dress with V-neckline in front and sheer lace back.  A champagne silk charmeuse sash and covered buttons provide the finishing touches.

Custom wedding dress for Zoe Badger.

A perfect romance... ivory silk chiffon and Chantilly lace dress.  The bodice is softly draped in back with elegant button detail on the 4-ply silk crepe bodice.  Lavender silk charmeuse sash at the waist adds a touch of color.
