Aggie & Mike's Wedding Video

Mike and Aggie re-built this car and showed the video at their wedding.
All the guests were blown away. This has to be the coolest wedding
video I have ever seen.

Aggie & Mike's Wedding
August 31 2013
We made the bridal gown and bridesmaid dresses.
Below are a few close up shots of the dresses.



 The bridal gown was made of matte
satin. With large rosettes on the side.
Each flower had a rhinestone sewn
in the centre.
Bridesmaids dresses were made of
two tone silk chiffon.

I was looking for the perfect jewelry to go with a bridesmaid dress. Too big, too small, too bold, too simple...ect. You know how it is when you have something in mind, but nothing seems just right.

I found a cute pair of rose gold colour earrings but they were a little short. They didn't come with a necklace and could not find one to match. Fortunately, they could be altered. I purchased 2 more pairs and a simple rose gold necklace. The only one the store had. I removed the earring wire and added it to the last section of first pair of earrings. With the 3rd pair, I attached one of the earrings to the necklace.

Did You Keep Your Bridal Gown? Why Not Wear it Again?

On her 10th wedding anniversary we had a client
who was renewing their vows. She wanted a
flowy chiffon gown. Wanting to wear her bridal
gown again she brought it in with a picture of
what she wanted.

We removed the lower portion of the gown at
empire and replaced it with chiffon.




With the skirt portion of her gown
she asked us to make a dress and
blanket for her daughters doll.
