(Gown by Marisa Bridal.)

I had never met a bride who was afraid of wearing the color white before, but that’s exactly what I got when Justine walked into my pop up bridal salon in San Francisco.  Her fears became real when the first few gowns she tried on overpowered her small five-foot frame and overemphasized her size G bust.  The appointment continued downhill until I put Justine into this soft, layered silk organza dress by Marisa.  It minimized her bust while still showcasing her hourglass figure.  Feeling beautiful for the first time in a white dress, Justine said “Yes” to this ethereal gown and proceeded to hair and makeup for a complete “Head to Hem” makeover.  Her reveal on the aisle of style brought tears to everyone.

I wanted Justine’s hair down in loose curls to create a soft frame around her angelic face.
