Real Garter: Vanessa

I have the most luxurious, high fashion wedding to share with you on today's real wedding garter story. I am so excited to finally be able to share it with you!

For one of the most fashionable brides ever, I created a Dolce & Gabana themed custom wedding garter. If you know anything about me, I was 110% in for this design! We married rich black eyelash lace with gold, red, and blue satin. I must say, the end result is what dreams are made of! 

Vanessa's wedding was featured in a recent issue of The Knot! Lucky for us, I have a few pictures from her wedding in Washington, DC to share. The attention to detail on every piece of the wedding day is beyond amazing... from the lemon tree to the table settings, it is utter perfection!

Check out the photos below from Bonnie Sen Photography of their old world, Venetian glam wedding day planned by DC wedding designers, Grit & Grace.

What did I tell you?! Don't you wish you were there celebrating with them? I love how fun, festive, and celebratory it seemed to be. What a perfect way for this couple to begin their lives together as husband and wife!
