Lou wanted a one of a kind dress that was just not available on the retail market. She had a lot of ideas of how to achieve her perfect dress, namely that lace bodice. The original dress was a plain strapless organza dress with a multi-tiered hem. The lace bodice was fashioned specifically to fit the dress, as well as her body, taking it from off the rack expected strapless to over the top fashion statement! Each tier along the hemline was hand decorated with coordinating lace as well as beadwork to match her handmade belt.
Her cathedral veil was 100% handmade, as well as her twelve bridal party ladies.
This was quite the custom project, and so worth it to see how amazing she and her girls looked on her special day!
