The gowns are handmade from eco-friendly and recycled silks that are constructed for a body-conscious fit allowing brides to move freely for a wedding in any venue setting!

WHY SHE LOVED IT: The train! The tulip petal train is unique and gorgeous - it can be displayed around and in front of you during the ceremony, and it also trails beautifully while walking. The fabric is also cool, it’s a ribbed silk which I haven’t seen on any other dresses. And the open back is sexy. Also the slit in front means you can actually show off the shoes you picked out! It was my dream dress!
HOW DID SHE FEEL: Gorgeous, like a screen siren. I felt so beautiful all day, and having the train let out while we did our first-look photos was so fun. I really wanted a dress that wouldn’t feel like a “basic” or standard wedding dress, something with a little extra edge, and this was it. It is the perfect dress.
DEAR FUTURE BRIDE: I hope you feel so beautiful on your wedding day! I really feel this dress will make you feel gorgeous. I still (constantly) look back at my wedding photos and fall back in love with my dress every time, and I hope it will have the same magic for you!
