Near and dear to my heart always are the weddings that feature one of my very own brides--that is--a bride I've worked with and designed a dress for. Holly came to me last summer wanting something she could wear for her late October wedding as well as reception eight months later cruising the San Francisco Bay on a yacht. I adore this Chantilly lace and 4-ply crepe dress we designed together. It's easy and comfy to wear not to mention classy. Here's what Holly herself had to say about Eddie and the wedding they planned: "We'd been together nearly seventeen years and after living together for nearly fifteen we decided to finally make it official. We wanted our wedding to be at the beautiful Marin Civic Center designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. We planned everything in just six weeks. We decided on just inviting family to the ceremony and dinner afterwards followed by a bash for friends and family in the Spring.
It rained the entire week of our wedding date but that morning the sun came out just for us. We met everyone at the civic center and luckily we were able to have the ceremony in the beautiful garden there. The ceremony was even more beautiful than I could imagine. The county official was wonderful and that made our vows even more touching. I was surprised how happy we both were finally going through this tradition and to share it with our families, now officially joined.
Special thanks to all of Holly and Eddie's family and friends who donated this medley of photos . . . .
