PREVIEW OF COMING ATTRATIONS: PRIDE BRIDES AND GROOMS
I've been wanting to do a shoot celebrating Pride Brides for the longest time. When I found out one of my fave shooters, Jim Vetterdid too, the project slowly but finally took form. Once we hooked up with Jamie Botello ofSullivan and Botello Events, we added grooms to the mix and it totally took off! Here's a sneak peek at the up and coming Pride Brides and Grooms, a celebration of Pride couples and weddings we shot at the architecturally gorgeous Regency Centerin San Francisco. This editorial also coincides with the upcoming launch ofGay Vanity Fair, the first gay and Lesbian Wedding Show, premiering Sunday February 9 at The Bentley Reserve in San Francisco. Brainchild of event planners Frederick Sullivan and Jamie Botello of Sullivan and Botello Events, Gay Vanity Fair will showcase the top wedding pros and bring the pages of the wedding glossies to life! This fair is a place you'll be able to touch the gowns, taste the wedding cake and champagne and smell the flowers . . . . .
I initially created this space for my clients. Eventually brides looking for that touch of wow found their way here. Draping and playing with fabric started some twenty years back when I did a three-year stint as a bridal fabrics buyer. After that I opened Bridal Alternatives, a custom design studio and ever since have had the opportunity of working with brides who want that extraordinary one-of-a-kind dress. I'm in love with fashion history and re-invention of the past.
Other connections to fashion? I’ve been a columnist for San Francisco Art and Fashion News and have a weekly fashion buzz on One Wed Blog. I founded The Design Project of San Francisco, a networking organization of fashion professionals collaborating their skills and talents on projects. I’m currently working on a book called—you guessed it—'Bride Chic', all about that white gown and very special designer/client relationship. I live with my husband Edgar and Chihuahua Piccalina in Marin County California.
