I stumbled upon Carolee's wedding photos a few weeks ago and I absolutely fell in love. Not only are they a gorgeous couple, but the thought and creativity put into every detail of her wedding day look is noteworthy.
Carolee successfully broke out of the Utah bride mold with her classic, 1950's style tea dress. She designed it herself, and it was made by a good friend. She effortlessly accomplishes the difficult task of a modest dress that is different from all the others.
Lovely, bright, autumn flowers, and an entirely unique venue for her reception (on the UVU campus).
The birdcage veil was also a collaborative effort between Carolee and her seamstress friend.
Congratulations Carolee! It was lovely meeting you.

Pretty shoulder-length veils. I think the key is minimal gathering, and a little longer than the shoulder, more like to the shoulder blades.
Yes, I posted this image yesterday. But I love the fill light and the bride's creamy skin. The veil is beautiful.

I made a few ring books several months ago. I thought they were smart, quaint, and quite pretty. I listed them, and they both sold within days to wonderfully unique brides who appreciate detail (and literature).
I received an email today that this ring book was featured in the ReadyMade blog. Lindsey's wedding was featured as a simple wedding that is centered around family and each other. Lindsey says, "I knew right off the bat there would be no tuxedos involved. I really wanted the feeling to be sophisticated, yet casual. Both Todd and I are pretty laid back, and I think we wanted the wedding to reflect that." If you don't know ReadyMade, you live in a box. It is a hip design magazine centered around DIY and urban living. Its a big deal. Seriously.
In the article, they chose to show my book as "the perfect etsy find"! Quite flattering, I must say.
The books will be back in shop. I promise. Thanks to Emily for finding this particular beauty at Weller's Books in Salt Lake City.
