I have known this family for years and even made Ashley's Prom Dress (got those photos somewhere, in an older blog)....So when she announced I she chose me to make her Wedding dress, she did so in Social Network style, by posting a red jacket that I made her Grandmother Lois.
I was so honored especially since, this young lady is such a fashionista. I was also to make Dawn (the brides Mother) and Lois (the Grandmother), dresses as well.

Beaded Bridal Pillow
Dawn (Mother of the Bride) with a linen dress with lace and beading. She said people kept trying to touch the dress.
Lois broke her leg a few weeks (maybe months) before the day. Her dress was a Silk 4 ply patchwork Jumpsuit, with beading, and a silk satin over skirt.

Details on the train was hand embroidered the women who have lifted her. Ucilla (Great Grandmother), Lois (Grandmother), and Dawn (Mother). The names are embellished with pearls (real).
