Real Garter: Kristen

lace and blue ribbon wedding garter

A classic woodland wedding steals our hearts away! This mountain side wedding in a chic little cabin was the perfect union for this bride and groom. Family and friends gathered as these two joined in marriage and exchanged their vows. 

Kristen's garter is truly a family wedding heirloom because it was handmade with lace and a beautiful blue bow taken from her mother's wedding dress slip. The classic white lace was the perfect accent to her chic wedding dress. The blue bow adds that 'something blue' without being overwhelmingly blue. It's the perfect combination of classic styles by bringing something of her mother's wedding day with her on her wedding day.

This bride also incorporated a lace handkerchief handmade with lace from her beloved aunt's dress into her wedding day! Click here to see the pictures that we took of her lace heirloom handkerchief made from her aunt's wedding dress.

I love the beautiful images of the garter and handkerchief together - each piece was so special to her and I loved handmaking it all for her! Enjoy!

Thank you, Kristen for sharing these special moments from your classic woodland wedding. And, especially for entrusting me to work with such special pieces to you and your family. I loved how we were able to turn your mom's lace slip into a garter for you and your aunt's lace caplet into a handkerchief for you too.
