I was so excited to, not only, do my best friend and business partner’s dress, but a maternity dress to boot!! She has great style and trusted me completely to do what I wanted for her gown. She was going to be 7.5 months pregnant on her wedding day. She is super petite, so a full dress would have eaten her alive!! I decided to make her the Vivian dress, maternity style!! We shopped for the fabric together, and I was impressed with her selection. She opted for an ivory, on ivory polka-dot, silk damask. I was excited to find a double sided, silk velvet ribbon as an accent.
Don’t forget the shoes!! We shopped for a full day for these!! I spruced them up with feathers and rhinestone buttons.
Gotta have a feather boquet too. Why not!?
Amanda gave Read a pecket watch with a photo of them in it for a wedding day gift…LOVEd it!!
I couldn’t leave Read out of the mix!! I made him a little something too!
Now I have officially dressed her from head to toe!!
Practicing her vows….
My favorite thing about Amanda….she’s ALWAYS laughing!!
They decided to see each other before t he ceremony…this si Amanda sneaking up on Read…
See? Always laughing!!
But sometimes crying….
They exchanged vows in the Presidential Suite at the Mission Inn in Riverside, CA.
Okay, so she did a bit more crying than usual this day!!
My husband, me, Amanda, Read, and our favorite officiant, Don Johnson (he married us too!!)
Outside their room…
What an emotional day!! There were 25 guests, my husband and I shot the wedding together, and we all had such a great time!! I was honored to dress the cutest pregnant bride there ever was!! I can’t wait to meet Addison James in July!! Congratulations, Amanda & Read!! We love you!!
