(Gina’s gown by Marisa has flowy diagonal layers of silk organza.)

Indecisive bride Gina is a new mom who was just not sure what silhouette would look good on her post baby body.  Bringing along her fiancé Jeff for opinion and moral support, I knew I would have to please both Gina and Jeff in order for her to say “yes” to a dress.  After trying on a gown that made her feel like a pumpkin and one that she felt highlighted her “problem areas”, Gina stepped into a flowy gown from Marisa that featured diagonal layers of silk organza that was perfect for her body. Jeff loved the gown, but Gina was still not ready to commit.  However, once Gina saw her completed “head to hem” makeover on the aisle of style, she finally felt beautiful and confident and said “yes” to her perfect dress.


This lace-trimmed veil from Toni Federici gave Gina the lace she wanted.



Raychel allowed Gina’s freckles to show through, so her makeup didn’t look too heavy, while Lindsay added soft curls to Gina’s hair; both ensuring Gina retained her natural and beautiful features.

Delicate earrings from Cheryl King were chosen for Gina’s bridal look.



To add more sparkle for Gina’s final “head to hem” look, I added a beaded belt from Lazaro.
