Like many modern relationships, my journey with this bride started online. At the time Juliana resided in the bustling belt of Hong Kong (another destination I’d love to visit!) and so we scheduled the first few consults via email.

When we finally met, this bride was even more beautiful in person than onscreen. Her mom accompanied her and honestly, what lovely, loving women they are. So dear and gentle and cultivated and well-rounded. Not too mention impeccably groomed and gorgeous. It was nothing short of wonderful getting to know them both.

Her gown had a definite voguish quality to it. Fashioned from off white raw silk, it had a slight square boat neck (love that design detail!) and a low rounded back. The skirt was pleated and featured pockets with a very big hand-beaded bow at the back.

Something that was really significant and memorable to me about this dress, was Juliana’s reaction to it. She was so proud and…she…how can I put it… delighted in it. And that’s ultimately what it’s about. It’s why I do what I do. And it was really special. So thank you, Juliana. xxx
