Julie and Andrew Langford wedding

Sometimes my gorgeous brides send me pictures of their special day. This is a beautiful Colorado wedding shot by Chandler Kim (www.chandlerkim.com). The lace on her sleeves are from her sweet mom's wedding gown. This is the beauty of making custom made gowns, anything is possible...

This couple was so sweet to make a special tribute to me and the ring designer in their party location. Can you spot the picture below? Let me know if you do... XXX/nat

Brides.com- Wedding Dresses That Give Back to Charitable Causes

Thank you Brides.com for doing a write up about our brand. I believe there is a shift coming. I believe we live in a generation that is going back to caring. Why not get a gown that you love, within the budget that you planned out AND help a girl in need at the same time?!?

The real preparation for a marriage

I get the privilege to spend a significant amount of time with beautiful brides to be. It seems like there is an ongoing subject in the months prior to a wedding. I'm not only talking about which location, what kind of food, what color the bridesmaid dresses should be but how to prepare for a lifetime with another human being? 

I think the answer to that is LOVE. You have to love yourself first in order to love another person. If you truly love yourself, you don't look to your spouse to complete you. Therefore you can give love unconditionally and without any expectations. 

The second part is to understand that YOU are loved. They always say: the truth shall set you free. But what they really should say is: revelation of the truth is what really sets you free. It's easy to say: I am loved BUT it's a completely different thing to KNOW you are loved.

A person that knows they are loved, also know that circumstances don't determine their value. Your career, achievements, looks and life situations don't determine your value. Once you have a revelation of love, you can also proceed to love others including your spouse the real way.

I know what you're thinking: well how do I do this?! To be honest, there is no 10 step guide to doing this. My way is prayer. I pray to God to reveal His love for me daily. It's when you start to meditate on the right things in your life that you can let go of the wrong thoughts.

1 Cor 13:4,7-8

I would love to hear from you if you have any questions regarding this.

Ladi & Steven Pennoyer Wedding

I get the honor of designing bespoke gowns. The lovely brides send me their wedding photos months later and it only brings back the joy, bonding and feeling we had making the gown together.

Here are some beautiful photos of the Ladi & Steven Pennoyer wedding shot by the talented Sidney Morgan (www.sidneymorganblog.com) 

Thank you Ladi & Steven for letting me be part of your special day.

Love/ Nat
