Some pretty images from Liz's wedding (courtesy of Erin Grace Photography). Designing the dress was a cross-country affair. Liz was working in New York but planning her Portland wedding for the fall. We met during a visit to Portland to discuss the dress. She chose lace at a New York fabric store and shipped it out to me, and we continued designing at a distance (photos, email, etcetera) until poof--surprise--her fiancé received a job offer in Singapore. Home she came to Portland for the remainder of the summer, so we got to have in-person fittings after all. Planning a wedding and an international move all at once--whew. Silk charmeuse gown with lace bodice, satin sash, and blush satin-covered buttons.
