“A wedding gown will live for generations in photographs. It is probably the most important dress that a woman will ever wear.” OSCAR DE LA RENTA
Although we hadn’t planned for me to make the dress, we were both so happy that we had the opportunity to do this. I will never forget the late night and early morning fittings, the quick day trips to NYC, and the laughter we shared as we had this unique experience of building her dress together.
Although we had people that thought we were crazy and that it was inappropriate for me to make and see the dress before our wedding day, Jamie and I would not change anything, and love that this is part of our story. It is a dress that we are both proud to have live for generations through the images we will show our children, grandchildren, and generations to come.
From shopping in the garment district of NYC to stitching and layering the dress piece by piece, these images document the process of constructing Jamie’s dress.
