Heather has a self-proclaimed “out of the box” personality.  Since she and her fiancé have yet to choose a venue, whatever dress she chooses has to be able adaptable to a variety of venues.

Heather mentioned that she love lace, but is worried that it will be too traditional. So I decided to show Heather how versatile lace could be.  This Ivory lace gown by Alvina Valenta will work for just almost any venue, from a traditional church setting to a tropical beach wedding.

I added a beaded Erin Cole belt to accentuate Heather’s tiny waist and give the lace a more modern look. Additional accessories and an understated floral bouquet completes Heather’s look.

My sketch for Heather’s bridal blueprint.

Paul pulled the top of Heather’s hair back to open her face with the sides and back falling into soft waves. Lesley kept Heather’s makeup soft and natural.

A Thomas Knoell hair comb was used to secure Heather’s hair and add a dramatic focal point.

Crystal chandelier earrings (Cypros) from Thomas Knoell also give the traditional gown a more glamorous, modern look.

This bouquet also gives a modern twist to Heather’s “head to hem” look.
