A beautiful, centuries old church in the heart of Old Quebec City. A rustic log cabin in the woods. The perfect setting for Daiton and Marie’s wedding. This was the first time I was able to do a wedding dress for a wedding that was on the other side of the country, and though it had it’s challenges (doing alterations on a pink sewing machine at the bride’s home the day before the wedding!) everything turned out perfectly.
Marie loves lace and pearls, so they were a must for this dress. To help capture the rustic vintage feel of the wedding, we went with a textural cotton lace. To enhance the texture, I reapplied additional lace pieces onto the bodice to create a 3-D feel. The lower part of the dress is silk satin that was cut to fit through the hips, but would then flare out into a full hem with a train. Hundreds of pearls from vintage necklaces were sewn down the back, from top to bottom! To add a splash of autumn colour, we added a champagne coloured silk ribbon.
Their wedding was captured beautifully by Jen Wall. Click here to see more pictures of the wedding…including more dress shots!
