I’m so honored to share photos of Kristin’s family heirloom custom wedding garter from her wedding day! You know I love hand making wedding garters from heiloom materials like the mother’s wedding dress or veil, but for Kristin she was able to share with me a piece of her grandmother’s wedding dress. Her garter was so stunning and so meaningful!
I was so happy when she sent over the pictures from her wedding morning! I love her bridal style with her sparkle shoes and floral robe, mixed with her sense of tradition – it is very fitting of her wedding garter design too!! In addition to the lace from her grandmother’s wedding dress, we added in a bright pop of deep, dark purple satin and finished it off with a luxurious corset tie in the back of the garter. The dark purple in her garter is so dramatic and moody, sort of like her wedding morning pictures!
Here are the photos that I took of Kristin’s purple and heirloom lace garter before I sent it to her. That corset tie detail on a garter gets me every time – I just love it!
Check out all of Kristin’s wedding morning photos and her custom wedding garter too!

Thank you so much to the beautiful bride, Kristin, for letting me be such a small part of something so amazing in your family and on your wedding day! I hope you love your garter forever and that you pass on through your family!
