(Gown by Dennis Basso for Kleinfeld)

Bride, Sparkle came to Randy to the Rescue in San Francisco knowing what was best for her big day.  The problem was, so did her mom.  However, because both had completely different ideas of the “perfect” gown, choosing a dress to please them both was not an easy task.  After placing Sparkle in a crystal and pearl encrusted gown by Dennis Basso for Kleinfeld, it was clear this was her gown.  When her mom dismissed the gown, Sparkle’s emotions got the best of her.  She retreated to the dressing room and had a complete meltdown.   Her sister and I convinced Sparkle to return to the pedestal and her mom had a change of heart, realizing that the most important thing was for Sparkle to happy.  At Sparkle’s reveal on the aisle of style, there was no doubt by anyone that Sparkle had chosen “her” perfect gown.

A full-length veil by Malis Henderson helped complete the final look.



Lindsey swept Sparkle’s hair to one side and secured it with a gorgeous Swarovski crystal encrusted hairpiece by Tia Doro. Raychel used a soft color palette, emphasizing her beautiful cheekbones with pink, and finished the look with a shimmery layer of gloss on Sparkle’s lips.

Crystal and pearl drop earrings by Cheryl King added more “sparkle”.

The addition of crystal Fleur de lis to Sparkle’s bouquet made it perfect for her “French-inspired” wedding theme.

My final sketch for Sparkle’s Bridal Blueprint included the crystal Fleur de lis that I sewed into the layers of organza ruffles on her skirt.
