One serious dress.
Emily's design is a boned, corseted gown with halter strap and silk ribbon sash dyed a pale café au lait color. Alençon lace over ivory crepe backed satin, fitted through the hip with flared tulip hem. This dress was epic: we had to specially order the lace from China, and wait weeks for it to arrive. There were many fittings to achieve just the right combination of slinky and comfortable, gorgeous and serious. Would you guess that this bombshell is an OHSU medical student who will start her residency right after her wedding? I love the modern bride. Right down to her punk rock fingernail polish.
