    So beautiful! It has such a light and romantic feel to it and yet so structured in the design of the bodice. Nice balance! You obviously have a great eye for fabrics and of course fashion. Kudos on the fit too!

    Whoa. This dress is a 12 course meal of glamour, imagination, fun, individuality, and amazing skills. The bride isn’t smiling because she has just married the love of her life, it’s an ear to ear grin of ’I’m wearing the best dress ever’!
