    Wow! What a gorgeous wedding. Rarely do wedding dresses make my heart go all pitter patter but…wow!

    I knew I had seen this somewhere:).

    oh I loooooove this dress. I sent it along to my sister in law in the hopes that she’ll do something similar for her wedding dress. fabulous!

  • MaryKate

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress, and her wedding story. I love how she made it; I would love to make my own wedding dress, but I am a little wary because of my severe lack of sewing skills. But I do think I could accomplish the detail she did by personalizing her dress with a hot glue gun and flocked velvet cutouts!

    Ha! I was obsessed with Kimi and her lovely invitations and dress for months. After searching high and low for a wonderful vintage- looking Prospect Park map to include in our wedding invites, (like Kimi had) I gave up. Two days before we mailed our map-less invites out, the boy and i are having a nice dinner out, and who walks in but kimi and her husband! Long story short, they are both wonderful people, and our invites were mailed with a vintage map thanks to kimi!! All the best of luck to her, she deserves it!

    Oh YOU’RE the one Elizabeth. I heard about that. Hurrah. And Harrah for Prospect Park, one of my favorite places on earth.

    So, Meg, you’re definitely one of my heroes. Having convinced me that I wasn’t crazy for wanting a blue dress, and helping to convince me that this shindig is possible, you have reminded me again how to make this thing mine.

    but I think I definitely need more help than I realized.

    too much to say here, said it over on my blog: .
