Robin liked it, so he put a ring on it.
October 15, 2011 by husband I made our love official in front of family and friends.
Robin and I originally met out salsa dancing, so guess what our wedding dance was? Yeah that’s right. Salsa.
Problem – my wedding dress was big enough to smuggle a piano under.
Solution – make me a second dress for our dance.
Enter ‘A Wedding dress of sorts’. This dress is made using silk dupion and french lace. I tirelessly hand stitched on lace motifs to the front of the skirt that climbs into the bodice.
We had such a beautiful night and the dress was a success.
