Loving Lace...

Lace has been very popular for the past couple of years & many of us can see why...  There is nothing more romantic then wearing a Lace Wedding Gown on your Big Day!  In this post I have one of my beautiful Chicago Brides wearing her custom made wedding gown from the Victoria Sdoukos Couture Collection..  This particular gown is the Angelina Gown & is featured in white Alencon lace.  One of my favorite elements on this gown are the hand stitched silk flowers that I added to the bottom of the gown & sash, which are highlighted with my favorite... Swarovski Rhinestones!!!  What makes this trumpet cut lace gown so special, is the unique combination of romance, glamour & classic all wrapped up in one!

Hollywood Glam!

Congratulations to my Hollywood Glam Bride Leslie!!!  She tied the knot this January in Chicago  with her amazing reception held at the Knickerbocker Hotel, might I add one of my favorite places.  I adore her city skyline photo, it captures the mood of what it means to be a Chicago Bride & of course I had to add the cake cutting photo bc it's one of my favorite Wedding Day moments..  Leslie wore a custom made gown from the Victoria Sdoukos Couture Collection  & added her own personal touches in the sash color, jewelry & layout of her Swarovski rhinestone studded flower on her shoulder.  The cut of the gown is a one shoulder trumpet cut, also referred to as fit to flare.  It's featured in ivory double faced duchess silk satin & is highlighted with a glamorous floral shoulder.  The shoulder has hand cut silk flowers, that are layered with two textures of silk chiffon & double faced duchess silk satin.  Leslie added her unique touches to the gown with the color tones that she picked out to highlight her look.  I loved her idea of mixing gold & silver tones together, as she loves those two metals just like me.  Her shoulder detail has beautiful muted gold & silver Swarovski rhinestones mixed in the flowers which makes the shoulder very interesting to look at & is like a piece of art.  I also cannot forget to mention the back of the gown, it has about 100 muted gold Swarovski rhinestone buttons along the back which is outstanding!!!  One of my favorite add ons to Leslie's gown, was a personal hand stitched heart made from a  piece of fabric from her Fathers clothing, as a memory of him.  It was so beautiful & seeing Leslie's reaction to the added piece in her gown was very touching, it made me so happy :)  More pictures of Leslie's Glamorous Wedding Day are available on my FB page!  Once again congratulations Leslie, you were so wonderful to work with & you looked like a Doll :)

Simply Stunning!!!

Congratulations to my beautiful Chicago bride Jenny!!!  She is wearing a custom made gown from the Victoria Sdoukos Couture Collection & is simply stunning...  I really love simple & clean lines when it comes to design.  Having a clean look allows you to have your true beauty highlighted.  Jenny is wearing a ivory double faced duchess silk satin trumpet cut wedding gown.  The sweetheart neckline completes this classic Hollywood glam look which suits Jenny perfectly! This is just another example, how less is more & being a Classic is always Glamorous!!
