I just adore this couple! They are unique and spunky.

I custom designed all 5 bridesmaids dresses for each girl, and used earth-friendly vintage silk.

The bride wore her grandmothers wedding dress that I extensively altered.  She has a custom asymmetrical birdcage veil edged in freshwater pearls and garters made from vintage and heirloom fabrics.  She’s a punk rock princess!
