Sally and George were married in their own backyard on a gorgeous day in late spring. Suzanne Rossi Photography was there to capture the day. It was not only a pleasure to be able to create Sally’s custom wedding dress, I was honored to also attend the beautiful celebration.
And I love that both of her parents also wore stripes!
I’ve been blogging behind the scenes for months, and I know you just want to get on to the wedding day photos, so without further ado…
As soon as I knew I was getting married, I knew I would ask Brooks Ann to make my dress.
It meant rekindling two old and dear friendships (BA and her husband Charles and I go way back to our college days), supporting a fantastically skilled artist, AND getting a kick-ass dress.
I do not love being the center of attention, and I was nervous about the whole spectacle of being a bride. Working with Brooks Ann on the design helped get me into the role, while her thoughtfulness and ease in the dress construction process started me on the path to enjoying it. By the time the dress was ready, I was too!
The dress is perfect– exquisitely made and unbelievably comfortable. Like favorite jeans pajamas comfort! Knowing the dress was made just for my body made me feel constantly attended-to and appreciated. I felt so good wearing it, and for what turned out to be a solid ten hours! Every guest went out of their way to say how stunning and how ‘Sally’ the dress felt.
I am so grateful to Brooks Ann for creating the foundation for a wonderful wedding experience.

Working with Sally to create this unique dress for her wedding day was a true pleasure. The wedding dress process was a fun and comfortable experience for both of us. I’m honored that Sally trusted me to turn her unique vision into a reality. Hearing that the #1 compliment was that the dress was “so Sally” warms my heart and is precisely why I do what I do.
