A Modern Fairy Tale

Here at the Little Pink Dress atelier we get to create all kinds of dresses, and they are all so fun to make, but what we really specialize in, and love to create is couture dresses such as Elizabeth’s.  The fact that Elizabeth and her mother Debbie  (who helped out with the fittings) are absolutely fabulous made the experience that much more  amazing! I’m still laughing thinking about our time together! Totally fantastic!

Elizabeth’s custom wedding dress was a fairy tale fantasy of materials and style. The dress was made in the most luminescent glass beaded lace, which was so heavy after we added all the voluminous inserts at the back,  it would have given Elizabeth a pretty good work out on her wedding day just by wearing it!
The lace draped over a dreamy ivory satin.

The back on Elizabeth’s dress was stunning. It had an open back, with hand appliqued scalloped lace trim. We added a row of duchess silk buttons to the back of the neck and the back bodice. The train of Elizabeth’s dress was quite long and full, so we added a bustle for when she was dancing at the reception.

The bodice of Elizabeth’s gorgeous dress was a bustier style, which made it very glamorous. We kept the shoulders sheer, so you really saw the detail of the delicate lace. The small cap sleeves were finished with a petite satin binding.

It was so wonderful to get this kind message from Elizabeth after the wedding:

” I was so pleased with how my dress turned out. It was absolutely perfect and you did an amazing job. Thanks again :) .”

Elizabeth’s mother, Debbie wrote me the most sweetest message:

The experience that Elizabeth and I had working with Hannah is priceless. From the moment we walked into her studio we felt like we had known Hannah for years. Every detail about Elizabeth’s dress was so personal. I highly recommend Hannah and can not say enough about the dress she made and the love she put into the dress…Thank you Hannah you are a true artisan.

Cheers to Elizabeth and Marlon on their wedding! Here’s to a magical life together. May you always be each others king and queen!

Love and peace,

Hannah
