Celadon is one of those colors your eyes can just sink into…not quite green, just a hint of blue…this cake makes a delicious pairing with our Venus silk velvet and lace gown.

New Looks: Decoupage Details • Lace

May 21st, 2013 – Comment

Lace is one of my favorite fabrics. There are so many varieties and techniques used to create this intricate textile, but I prefer the old ways. Many of the mills that I work with are in their 4th, 5th, and in one case, 9th generation of family owned businesses! Some of the lace patterns in my collection were designed and drafted in the 1760’s. I feel the history behind these gorgeous fabrics makes lace such a special choice for a wedding dress. That sense of the past, and artisan craftsmanship being handed down through the generations is rare in our disposable world, and it gives me hope that there are still people doing this work, and brides that appreciate it.

I love how this bouquet featuring anemone flowers with dark centers compliments the back details in our Midnight gown. Pair with bridesmaids dressed in jet or plum for a truly elegant wedding.
