The House of Mirth.

This wedding is a sentimental favorite for me. When Kim told me she was getting married at The Mount, the house Edith Wharton built in the Berkshire hills of Massachusetts, my inner literary nerd could hardly contain herself. Floating on a cloud of inspiration, I convinced her that her dress absolutely had to be made from some very special, authentic, fragile hundred-year-old lace. Black lace. Ivory silk underlay, column silhouette--very Edwardian. Very Wharton, if you will. Kim was, in every way, a complete joy to work with, and the dress couldn't have suited her better. I feel honored to have such a lovely client. Best wishes, Kim and Dan!
