A Beach Ballgown for Julie!


Real Bride Julie was one of my favorite projects to date and I could  not have made it for a more grateful person! Julie's personality, her smile, and her gratitude was always infectious! For Julie we made her our (my) dream dress: A button up sweetheart ballgown in Spanish lace and whisper web mesh tulle with a removable bridal jacket embellished in dimensional flowers! 

While working on Julie's dress, Michelle McGrady Photography reached out about collaborating! As we were in season and time was tight we collaborated with Michelle to get bridal portraits of Julie in her custom gown, bridal jacket, veil, garter, and hubby's everlasting boutonniere! 

Arnold's Flower Shop made the bouquet and Quinta Rosa saved us when our original venue forgot about us! The ambiance in Quinta Rosa Estate's La Rosa room was perfect for our shoot to take place! La Rosa is an English and Country French styled room; which fit Julie's glow and gown! Michelle had an invitation suite made to make Julie's Bridal Portraits feel like a styled shoot and I brought a vintage nightie so that we could all be treated to sneak peeks a few weeks before Julie's wedding!
