Lovely as Lynette is in her appearance, it is that which is not visible to the naked eye that makes her an incredibly beautiful woman.  Such a gentle, compassionate, soft-spoken soul, Lynette reminds me that, in the words of Arthur Helps, there are no better cosmetics than a severe temperance and purity, modesty and humility, a gracious temper and calmness of spirit; and that there is no true beauty without these graces.

Lynette wanted her dress to be different… (I just love it when a bride says that!!) …so we fashioned a straight silhouette with a dropped waist in a nude/champagne colour. A gold-leaf lace motif embellished the bodice and arms, repeating itself along her neckline. She finished the look with a stylish, slick red lip, looking like she just stepped out of a scene of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. Needless to say, but I’ll say it anyway: The end result was GORGEOUS! Beyond love this look!
