Butterflies in the Desert

With only 2 months before her intimate ceremony, Victoria visited us at The Castle to find her dream dress. Luckily, with a little help from our gown fairies, we were able to create this bride's dream dress just in time for her March ceremony. And wow, was it gorgeous!

Our bride decided that a sleeveless, no train version was more her vibe, and we love how it turned out, especially against this desert backdrop!

Victoria originally came to us with the idea of a custom jumpsuit, but when she tried on Chrysalis, it was meant to be. There's just something about wearing a dress on your wedding day...yes, I'm all about staying true to your personal style, so if a jumpsuit is it, then be all means, go for it. But on the other hand, how many chances do you get to wear a French embroidered gown scattered with flowers and butterflies that literally match your tattoos? The ethereal nature of this dress with the aqua blossoms, ecru and sage embroidery, and fairy dust underlay just felt right, and with a few customizations, it was perfect.

With love, gorgeous florals by Blooming Belles, a beautiful gown, and this amazing dog wrangler (AKA father of the groom), what more do you need?!

Victoria and Andrew are proof that you can still have that special wedding you've been dreaming about, even when the circumstances aren't what you first imagined. I'm so happy these two were able to celebrate with a few friends and family in person, and zoom with all who couldn't make it.
