Gothic Wedding Starring Phoenix

Gothic Wedding Starring Phoenix

I couldn't imagine a better way to start the new year than with this epic wedding. Cypres and Adam truly embraced their unique sense of style for their special day, and every moment was fabulous! Can a wedding be dark and moody, and yet utterly joyful? Here's proof that's a resounding "Yes". Photographed beautifully by Captured by Lau Photography this wedding is for my gothic queens out there!

I love all the dresses I design, but this one...holds a special place in my heart. The unique silk velvet fabric was created in France exclusively for me in a limited quantity, never to be replicated again! Soft blush roses, black lace insets, a cloudy painted backdrop...this gothic, romantic gown with her billowing sleeves, high neck and low back, paints a new picture of who a bride can be. And Cypres, with her long red locks and non-traditional take on a wedding, was the perfect bride to rock this bold look. In fact, she is one of the only brides to wear this special piece!

These photos are the ones that need framing...these two pledging their vows with their son as witness to their commitment is something they will cherish forever.

From the electric teal tux, to the delicate florals and The Clay Theatre literally featuring this couple's wedding (a theatre as a wedding venue? Yes please!), I have no words, only a full heart and joy for these two!

But, I will take a slice of that cookie cake which of course this rock and roll couple would choose - no traditional cake tiers here!

Yes, sometimes it's an ivory gown with sparkly heels in a blooming garden, and sometimes, it's an epic velvet gown, black boots, renting out a theatre, and your little one standing beside the two of you. And guess what? Both are equally beautiful! I hope this wedding inspires our future brides and couples to be exactly who they are. Congratulations Cypres and Adam!

I’m so glad to see this Phoenix dress; it’s amazingly perfect in every way. Such creativity you have!! Have you done any other velvets? Also, I wore an antique Irish lace dress from about 1960, from New Orleans where I grew up, in my 1987 wedding with a blue slip underneath. Glad to see that idea has come back. I wanted to get it appraised but not sure how. You craft is wonderful.
