The Mulberry Gown
Many thanks to Jami Saunders Photography for sharing these photos!
This one’s a good one, y’all!
Tara and her fiance threw tradition to the wind, hopped on a plane, and were married against the gorgeous backdrop of Iceland in the most intimate of ceremonies…just the two of them and the officiant.
Tara’s Winchester gown of 4 ply silk crepe with draped peplum and dramatic fit to flare silhouette was topped with a cathedral length circle veil, and we absolutely love the final result.

I had the pleasure of working with Cameron at one of our trunk shows, and she is as sweet as she is beautiful!
The Poplar gown of asymmetrical, organically draped silk gazar was perfect for her wedding in Florence. I love the pops of red mixed with gray too!

I’m going to apologize in advance for the abnormally large number of photos in this post, but when you’re a wedding gown designer and your best friend gets married, you don’t half-ass it. (Yes, I said ass on a wedding blog.)
This is Katie Pearls. Pearls and I met in high school at a super nerdy faux government camp for girls where you learned things like how to shake hands like a lady, ran for fake senate seats, and had tea with the governor’s wife (southern belle style, if you will) ……We spent our college years riding a tandem bicycle around Charleston, living together in an old historic house downtown on Rutledge Avenue (now the name of one of our best selling gowns!), and bonding as an urban family of sorts as we navigated the madness that is growing up – planning our futures, tackling self doubts, heartbreaks, you name it. Time took her to San Francisco, me to NYC, but it’s the type of friendship that thrives despite the distance.
Pearls suffered through my neurotic midnight sewing sessions for years, and hopefully this was a bit of a repayment for that! For her Charleston destination wedding to the very dapper Jeremy, we created a custom gown of hand embellished silk and sequin vines over layers and layers of tulle, and a second look of full on sequined glam for the reception.
First look at her groom!

Ciao da Italia!
I’m excited to share these inspiring images from a recent collaboration with Mike Larson Photography.
The l’Elysee gown is a personal favorite of mine. This gown is all about the fabric. The silk cloque is woven for us in England and has a lightness and texture that is unreal. The opalescent color comes from neon pink and yellow and blue fibers woven between layers of the palest silver. The result is a slightly lavender hue that catches the light in the prettiest of ways. Throw in a stunning private Italian estate and you suddenly find yourself in a fairytale, castle included.
Let’s all pretend we live here, shall we? Oh, just out for a morning stroll…
Many thanks to Mike and his team for bringing our gowns halfway around the world!
