Here is a quote from when I was featured on Utah Bride Blog about my wedding gown:
“Taylor and I met and started dating when we were 15, almost 8 years later we finally tied the knot! I was not only ecstatic about marrying my sweetheart and best friend, but I was also so excited to plan our wedding and most importantly, design and make my dress. I attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan where I received my degree in Fashion Design. I have always loved formal dresses, especially wedding gowns. I made all of my high school prom and homecoming dresses and have been designing my dream wedding gown ever since I can remember. When I started making my gown in September 2012 I knew exactly what I wanted the bottom half of the gown to be like because the design in my head had remained the same for the past few years, I had even purchased all of the fabric years ago. The top half of the gown did not come to me until I was completely done with the bottom and needed to solidify a bodice design. I am so inspired by Elie Saab so naturally I was searching for pictures of his work and I stumbled across a gorgeous gown which became my inspiration. Over 250 hours and more than 3,000 beads later, my gown was complete. I designed and sewed every bit of it from start to finish and I could not be happier. I feel like a sparkle princess and I never stop smiling whenever I have it on because everything turned out exactly how I had always dreamed. This is the second wedding gown I have made and I cannot wait to make more unique and beautiful custom gowns in the future. Nothing makes me happier than my handsome groom, sequins, gorgeous gowns, and weddings!”
