MARY: Full of Grace

Austin, Texas. 

When I see this dress, my heart gives a little thumpitty thump. Maybe because illusion netting is coming back into the world, or the lace fitted bodice, maybe the chiffon skirt... oh!, did I mention the skirt is removable? 

Mary, the bride, channels a bit of Audrey Tautou or Marion Cotillard in her French 1950s garden party inspired wedding, and wears her Monique Lhuillier gown like a princess in her vintage yellow Chanel heels and veil. 

The small party of guests got to take home vintage tea cups as favors collected from random antique stores on the bride and groom's travels. Cameo brooches graced the bouquets and boutineers, and macaroons were the delightful desert of the evening. The invitations and thank you's were custom designed from vintage handkerchiefs giving new life to the DIY wedding.
