  • THE STORY

    This magical dress found me through a stroke of luck and I hope to pass that magic on to you!

    My fiancee had a gig in Austin and so a friend and I checked out a local boutique casually, as I hadn’t begun looking for a gown officially yet. They happened to have just received inventory from a trunk show by indie couture designer Tara LaTour. I tried on several gowns, but the moment I tried on a Tara LaTour, I knew she was my designer. I left the boutique without purchasing, as this was my first appointment and wasn’t sure what else was out there. A couple weeks later, I knew I’d never find anything comparable, so I called her atelier in Minneapolis and was on the phone with Tara herself. This was not a gown that had been shown in the trunk show but after describing to her the others I’d liked, she assured me this was my gown. I listened to her described her process and what it was like to work with such contrasting fabrics. I was in heaven! She even sent me the original sketch of the gown!

    To this day, everyone comments on how special my gown was. A friend recently told me she’d attended over 20 weddings and been in 11 and had never seen a prettier gown. I don’t want this beauty hanging in a bag in my closet. Somewhere there is a gorgeous, daring, artistic and elegant bride who deserves to shine in this gown as I did!

  • ALTERATIONS

    I had the bodice ever so slightly altered so I wouldn't need a bra. This was done by a professional couture alterations specialist and there is no indication that changes have been made. Additionally, some original pics of the gown on Tara's website or social media will show tiny straps on the gown. Neither myself nor the alterations specialist liked the look of these IRL so we removed them and unfortunately, I am not sure where they ended up. While I did not wear the burnt orange belt pictured with the original I do have it and am happy to send it.

  • PRESERVATION

    I had this gown professionally restored ($300) at Finto Bridal Cleaners in Dallas. MY wedding was outdoors and on the underside of the train the fabric shows ever so slight dirt from the grass. You cannot see this unless you flip the skirt over and look for it.
