Julia – Mango Studios

I met Julia at a Langdon Hall Open House while we were doing a styled shoot.  Julia fell in love the dress I had created for the shoot (see the blue floral dress featured on Ruffled Blog) so we recreated it in a full beaded lace and changed the neckline to a full lace illusion neckline and long sleeves.  The results speak for themselves!  We also created a full lace gown for her mom.

Crystal’s dress was the perfect mix of elegance and sexy.  The front slit added that touch of sexy while the cowl back and covered button detailing was all about the classic elegance.  We added the beaded belt at the waist to give it that little bit of sparkle.  All these little details add up to big time glamour.

I love a super minimalist dress, especially when it has a super sexy back like Kelly’s dress.  It is those little surprises that no one expects that really make the difference.

I was beyond honoured when my friend Tina from Living Fresh asked me to make her wedding dress.  I was even more excited when I saw her inspiration dress.  Tina did not want your run of the mill wedding gown. Challenge accepted!  First thing, not white! Next, a non traditional wedding fabric, velvet!  This dress pushed me in a technical sense but I am so happy with the outcome. The cascading ruffle in the front was not part of the original design but is probably my favourite design aspect of the dress.  You can see the rest of Tina and Harold’s stunning wedding in the Spring/Summer 2019 issue of Wedding Bells.

Sam – Sarah Antaya

Sam was a bride who was not excited about shopping for a wedding dress.  In fact she didn’t want to wear a dress at all.  She decided if she was going to wear a dress it had to be simple and comfortable.  I am such a believer in less is more and this dress is the perfect example of it.  To add a little something special to the dress we took lace from her grandmother’s wedding dress and used it to make the covered buttons.  It’s the little details that make all the difference. In the end Sam told me I had made her fall in love with a dress.  Mission accomplished!

With an outdoor wedding Tanya wanted a dress that was easy to move in and was comfortable.  Tanya chose the most beautiful iridescent silk chiffon fabric for her wedding dress.  The must have item for this dress was the horsehair hem detailing.  It added just the right amount of detailing to a simple elegant skirt.  The skirt was paired with a Chantilly lace illusion bodice with a low back and cap sleeve.

Judy wanted to knock the socks off her guests for her New Year’s Eve wedding and she sure did!  Her champagne and black wedding gown was a show stopper.  The original gown was dated and ill fitting so we completely transformed her gown to make it fit her new vision.

A big tulle skirt just makes me happy so I was beyond excited to create this pink tulle skirt for Brie. Honestly, I wanted to wear it myself.  Brie paired her custom skirt with a lightweight sweater which was perfect for a chilly March wedding.

Shannon – re:action Photography

Not only does Shannon have a great sense of style she is also a lot of fun to be around.  Shannon’s assymetric one sleeve lace wedding gown matched Shannon’s personality perfectly.  Instead of a veil we created a lace headband to compliment her short hair.
