Adornment, what a science! Beauty, what a weapon! Modesty, what elegance!
– Coco Chanel
This beaming bride is super smart, stunning and has a big heart to boot. Despite her God-given gorgeousness, Michelle is modest and wanted something simple and understated.
And so we made her an elegant empire-style dress, consisting of a sheer tulle top and soft Georgette skirt. We beautified the bodice with 2 layers of lace and detailed the V-neckline and sleeves with raw silk binding. I love the latter – it’s such an interesting design detail and creates beautiful clean cut lines.
The end result was just gorgeous. It’s elegant, classy and comfortable. Proof that a simplistic design can still make a striking statement.
I also shared Michelle’s wedding video below. You have to see it. It will melt your heart. The way he looks at her…it’s the stuff movies are made of.
