Claire and her fiancé are planning a winter wedding in downtown Nashville and she wants the dress to mirror the winter theme.  She wants a gown that is glamorous and will fit with the festive holiday spirit. Like many women, Claire has a difficult time thinking of herself as beautiful.  Although she has conquered her weight issues, when she looks in the mirror Claire still only sees flaws.

I needed to find a gown that would show Claire just how beautiful she is.  The fitted trumpet silhouette of this Augusta Jones gown showcases Claire’s hourglass figure and the glistening beaded lace appliqués are perfect for her winter themed wedding. To complete her “head to hem” makeover, we gave Claire the hair and makeup that she desired.  We used a pop of red for her lips and bouquet to coordinate with the wedding colors.  Then I added a few crystal accessories for even more sparkle.

During her reveal on the aisle of style, I was so happy when Claire looked into the mirror and realized how beautiful she is.
