Elopement

At the end of last summer, I did an amazing collaboration with quite a few talented ladies. This Fall elopement shoot was incredible. We just got to the location just after a storm passed at 8am, it was a bit chilly that morning and very windy. But as we all arrived and got every thing set up, Models dressed and camera ready. It got warm, blue skies appeared and the sun created such great light peaking through the woods.

Claireville Conservation in Brampton, Ontario is like a dream. Especially for a photo shoot, we had several landscapes to choose. From rolling Hills to a rocky road and even into the woods, no wonder we all had such a fabulous day! 

The couple were gorgeous and really so in love, which truly takes your breath away with such intimate moments. I was lucky to be apart of something so very special. If eloping were just like this, I think more couples would do it ;).

Creating this dress was really wonderful, from the first designs to the day of the shoot. It is romantic and flowing plus a little flirty underneath the beautiful veil like removable skirt. I love the way the wind carries and fills it up in some of the gorgeous pictures by Roxana Martinez Photography.

I hope this inspires you and fills you with so much joy!

Do you plan to have two dresses for your Wedding Day but it’s adding up to be too much for your Budget? A removable skirt may be the perfect option for you.

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!

Your Designer,

Amanda Garrett
