Boho Wedding

Boho Wedding

Last spring I created a simply elegant bohemian wedding dress for a Spring Photoshoot with Michelle Liane Photography. My favourite thing about these collaboration shoots, is that I am given a rough idea and can run with it. Being creative is one of the best things life can offer, the joy I feel when it all comes together is just the greatest thing! Working with so many other amazing creatives is so worth while. You will see that the beauty that comes from each of us illuminates through the moments that were captured in the shoot.

This couple was real, completely and totally in love and it shows. Little do you know the sweet nothings being whispered were pretty silly jokes which made her laugh so incredibly true. I know that my guy would be the same way, silly and trying to make me laugh, so people aren’t super lovey dovey and that’s okay! I think even on a wedding day being silly is one of the reasons she has chosen to be with him or vise versa. These captures are stunning and I am so happy that even though I was 7 months pregnant at the time I could totally be apart of it. You wouldn’t know that there were a million mosquitos and it rained basically the whole time, HA!

I love my collaboration shoots! It's great to be able to get a team of incredible creatives together and bring to life moments like these. THIS dress was so much fun to create. From finding this perfect lace, which challenged me because I had never worked with it before. It had quite a stretch to it and with the beautiful lines it has, patience and a good eye really needed to be used for this one. I wanted to do a 1970's piece because I think it is so wonderful to create from different eras, so be prepared to see some other staple pieces from specific times. The sleeves, neckline and hemline make this dress exactly what it is meant to be, timeless. Take a gander at what our amazing team did together and with only 15 minutes of light on the day of the shoot. 

The 1970's look for weddings is very on trend, from the dresses to the floral headpieces. It could be the simplistic look you've been searching for. There are several styles that would work for this look, the high neck and wide sleeves are just one of the many options. Mostly making one a kind and your very own, you could have an almost peasant style that is off shoulder and high lights your more playful side. Lace, lace and more lace, a long train of lace, with unlined lace sleeves, low v-back and high neckline would be on the more elegant side if that is the look you're going for.

 

Having a custom dress created from your vision and brought to reality can be the best possible decision you have ever made. The best part is it can be anything you want, from any era past or present and even a mixture to make it fun and modern.   

If you're considering having a custom dress and/or accessory for your special day, send an email my way. It would be my pleasure to make all your dress & accessory dreams come true!
