Lace & Pearls: Wedding dress

Sunday, January 6

Like I promised on previous posts, I wanted to take the time and show all of you a few images of the wedding process, in this case of my wedding dress creation.

For me, my gown was the easiest and least stressful thing about the whole wedding. I always had a clear idea of what I wanted: A lace &  backless long sleeve gown in a light cream color. Thank God for Carla (my dress designer) she was sweet, patient and understood my view from day one! She chose all of the fabrics, and I fell in love with every single one of them, all were simply beautiful. The lace (for the upper part of the dress: front, back and arms) was covered with pearls which gave a feminine touch and antique look. I wanted to be able to move and dance with ease so the skirt was flowy and light.  

She also did my headpiece and my capelette that replaced the vail. But, my favorite part of the dress was the little surprise I had for Jayson. I asked Carla do to our initials N & J on one of the arms. It was super cute detail and everyone (specially Jay) loved it!

Makeup and hair done! About to get married!
Everything turned out better than I imagined. I can truly say that I had my dream dress !

What do you guys think, let me know!



PS: I will show you pics of my shoes, clutch and accessories soon!

What a special thing to start from scratch in creating your perfect wedding dress, instead of trying to find one and alter it. This dress has YOU written all over it, and it's gorgeous. Love the lace and pearls :)
