Wildflower Storybook Corseted Wedding Gown, Woodland Blossom Bohemian Bridal Gown


This wildflower gown
with its sweetheart bodice,
is romantically covered in 
vintage embroidery and
 countless pieces of
vintage lace.
Every colored piece is framed or embellished with lace.
Ribbon corseting ties both the front and back
gracefully connecting vintage laces.


 Vintage and fine fabrics are gathered and layered 
creating a rustically romantic skirt.

The texture details of lace seem infinite.
Symbols of the delicate way a heart weaves itself
through every aspect of life.











 I just love 
this sweet little bird 
wrapping itself around the bride!

 Close ups, 
so you can see the details
 of embroidery work and lace.

 When you decide on one of my dresses, 
you are choosing
beauty,
elegance,
handmade,
heart felt,
art!

Marie Antionette French Provincial Styled Wedding, Rustic Romance at Union Hill



For the couple who is taken with the idea of celebrating 
their marriage in a rustically romantic way, 
combining creative new fashions 
that are inspired by history
 seems an original 
and authentic way of doing just that.

As a designer, 
there are many factors that I consider 
when creating a unique or custom gown.





My intent is for the bride to look and feel like she is wrapped up in her very heart, 
ready to present all of herself, 
visually, 
emotionally,
 mindfully and spiritually to her groom.






Taking into account the location
 is an important part of the design process.







Whatever the occasion, we ask that age old question, 
"What should I wear?"
In a New York five star hotel, of course you would want to sparkle.


the gown should be something created specifically
to be complimented by the surroundings.





This gown is covered in a variety of vintage fabrics, laces and pearls. 
I employed tea dyed satins, linens and laces
to combine the elegance of a traditional bridal gown, 
with the  simplicity of  linen.


The effect is a gown that is appropriate for the time and place,
and a bride who knows she has found the perfect dress!












brought together a team of excellent local artists
 and was headed up by a beautifully creative photographer.
I was truly honored to collaborate with these women 
and am absolutely inspired and encouraged 
by each of their spirits' of excellence.

Snow White Rustic Princess Romance Gown, White Woodland Wildflower Wedding Gown


Subtle layers of whites , 
both color and lace texture 
make this romantic gown soft to the touch and soft on the eyes. 
Delicate and rustically romantic, 
the embroidered wildflowers follow the contour of the bodice , 
beautifully framing the torso.  
Vintage lace finishes the pointed and ruffled skirt of the bodice. 
Elegant bridal lace connects each vintage piece,
symbolically weaving times past to the present.
Absolutely, one of a kind.
Be sure to take in all the delicate details! 







Each of these lovely vintage embroidered flowers 
delicately
adorns the bodice.
