Elizabeth & John

Elizabeth came to me with a huuuge dress.  Elizabeth has a teeny frame!

Her long sleeved, allover lace dress from Church Street Bridal was perfect for her large Cathedral wedding location, but we had quite a few changes to make.  We took the dress up everywhere. We even narrowed the train a little because it was too wide for her stature.  Once we took the dress up 4 or 5 sizes, I discovered for myself that she has a beautiful  figure! Who knew under all of that excess fabric!? 

Liz got ready at the Hilton Garden Inn on top of South Peak in Roanoke. Her hairdresser was Ally from Emma Williams Studio at Smith Mountain Lake.  Her florist was Lindsey Brown.  Her flowers were swoon-worthy!!

Her flower girl was sweet as could be.  I love the following pictures. They capture "the look"  You can see the flower girl's prepared and poised expression.  The Mother of the bride is in the second picture with a look that beams her love and pride for her daughter.  

I was very busy with steaming and last minute tacking with the bridesmaids and flower girl.  We assist anyone in the bridal party who has a wardrobe-related need. We tie sashes into perfect bows, and straighten or pin boutineers when needed.  

Off to the church! Saint Andrew's Catholic Church!

Her photographers were a team under Jeff Colquhoun.  He already has a sneak peek up- go check it out!  Her videographers were from Ascension Press, (Chris, Nick, and Philip.)  All of them were super nice to work with!

I wrapped my bridal Pashmina around Liz as she and her new groom awaited the limo.  It was a beautiful, crisp fall day. The limo would soon sweep them off to Hunting Hills Country Club for their reception. What a wonderful day for a wedding!
