Anabelas wedding dress hanging in the window
I had the pleasure of working  with Anabela from Fieldguided in creating her dream dress for her wedding, which took place this past September. When she asked me to make her dress, my heart started to race in a panic kind of way. I'm pretty accident-prone, so working with miles of delicate WHITE fabric is not something I trust myself with. Also, I'm a little bit scared of brides!

But who can say no to this face?!

So, we went to one of our favorite café’s and took girly pleasure in talking about all the dreamy details she wanted her dream dress to have. My bride-phobia melted away when I realized how easy going and open minded she was about it. She loaded me up with great ideas and placed lots of trust in me, which was very touching but also a bit terrifying.  Many months and sketches later, she picked her favorite design, which was my favorite too!

I give this girl the golden badge of patience, as she didn’t ruffle a feather at the fact that she was only picking the dress up a few days before the wedding. It was such a lovely experience being a small part of this important day, and having the opportunity to creatively collaborate with such a talented and lovely girl! More importantly, it was so touching seeing Geoff and Anabela walking down the isle looking brighter and happier than ever, with the look of love in their eyes. That’s right, there is a love look and these kids have it!

To put extra icing on the cake, our friend Celine Kim, who I had the pleasure of working with on the Eden Collection, photographed the big day. She has such a gift for capturing magical candid moments. She also wrote a lovely post about the wedding day.

    Stunning! I'd get married again if I had a dress like this! (To the same man, of course!)

    She looks like a grecian goddess! This dress is really lovely. I'm loving all of the hidden details like the buttons, the shoulder motif, the beads, etc.

    You did an amazing job on it!

    Oooooh, this is positively dreamy. I love the shoulder details and the draping in the back. Beautiful!

    Did you sew the shoulder embelishment yourself?

    Thanks so much for all your lovely comments. I'm so happy with how the dress turned out. To answers your question, Dana, Anabela found the shoulder epaulettes on Etsy. Aren't they lovely? I wish I was that crafty with hand beading!

    I've been waiting to see this dress ever since you mentioned it awhile back. Wow! Anabela looks breathtaking. The drape and silhouette is vintage and classic. Bravo, bravo!
