Custom Emily Kotarski Dress Brings Whimiscal Wedding Dreams to Life

For this inspirational shoot, we tried to channel some of the gorgeous details of the old world by hosting this shoot at Middleton and combining that legacy with some new and modern touches, like the gorgeous stationery that features a more modern and clean look. We expanded on that idea with a tablescape of clean lines of white, and ivory, but touches of gold in candelabras that were both modern and a throwback. The dress may be the single coolest part of the shoot though, GORGEOUS detailing on this custom, one of a kind dress from Emily Kotarski, made complete with a cape.

Once Wed was launched in March 2008 to meet a need in the marketplace for an online listing service for second-hand wedding dresses. Within a short time, the company had developed into an online wedding publication and resource to provide newly-engaged brides with inspiration and tools to plan their dream wedding.
