  • THE STORY

    This was the third dress I tried on (but I’d seen photos online) and immediately fell in love with it. I was afraid it was too “much” for our garden party/barn wedding but it was perfect! I am a wedding photographer and my wedding photographer friends went nuts over this dress. None of us had photographed anything with this much detail or this silhouette. I knew I didn’t want a long dress so this was perfect.

    And the color! You can’t get over the color. It’s called coffee and in some lights the skirt is more of a light tan, in others its like a blush cappuccino. Amazing! I showed my husband iPhone photos of all the dresses I’d tried on (we’re kind of non-traditional) and he immediately picked this dress. He LOVED it. I’m so glad the dress was fabulous because our wedding day was a disaster. 32 degrees and sleeting, 2 open air venues, and no rain plan. This is TX. When is it 32 degrees? So that’s why you see the little bolero in most of the photos. Everyone else is in parkas lol but I think the fun energy of the dress kept people having fun even in such cold weather. It truly is a marvel in person. And I’ve photographed a lot of dresses! These lovely photos were taken by Shannon Cunningham Photography.

  • ALTERATIONS

    A 34D longline bra was sewn into the bodice, the bodice was taken in slightly to mold to my shape and the bra better. The alterations were not extensive as the seamstress did them while I waited and grand total $100. Nothing was hemmed. I am 5'4", 34C, 27" waist, 35" hips. We did not remove any tulle from the skirt. Many brides do but we left it as designed. I will include a $60 pair of earrings and sparkly headband purchased from the same bridal shop in Austin (Blue Bridal).

  • PRESERVATION

    It was worn twice, for bridals and the wedding (2/28/15). Each time hung for a day to air out and then put back into the garment bag. I have not had it steam cleaned. Generally you don't want to do that to dress repeatedly, and I could not decide whether to preserve it or sell it. Finally after looking at my photos, someone else should enjoy this dress as much as I did. So it's up for sale. It really helps that this dress does not touch the floor. The only thing I saw was a couple of raindrop size very pale dots on the skirt, and with the hues in the skirt, I'm still not sure they are even stains.
