Back in November, just as the weather broke and Winter arrived, we shot The Lenora.  The Lenora is a majestic and regal gown fit for the brave bride who accepts Gold in abundance and would pair it with a blush veil and a dried flower crown.  The Lenora gown is six yards of liquid sunshine in a shift style ballgown with fitted long sleeves and a crew neck.

The flowers we purchased from Phoebe of Thistle Flower Farm. Her bouquet's towards the end of the season were so rich in color that I had to have them and truthfully her stems inspired the gown and this shoot. To not compete with the bouquet we used an old, dried flower crown; which also nodded towards the impending snow!

As always, Allison Marie gave us the fairy tale. I didn't go into this knowing that I would leave with 'Sleeping Beauty,' but I did and I'm forever grateful for the woman I know in Allison who became a friend through so many styled shoots.  She often accuses me of giving her soul-food, but I believe it's a shared effort of our gratitude towards one another ;). 

When I was young, Sleeping Beauty was my favorite Princess.  The loom always left me in awe, the idea that threads could become fabric and fairies could make a dress with a wand... To think I became a Designer and it's fascination may have started then.
