It is no secret that I love working with fashion designer, Kate Miles. She creates truly unique designs, many of which are one of a kind items. This particular design is a convertible wedding gown. Kate was inspired by brides who wish to have more modest gown for their ceremony, but something a little more party oriented for their reception. The gown is two separate pieces: the strapless sheath gown and a long sleeve overlay. Both pieces are easy to add and remove, making the transition for any bride quite simple and swift. Side note: There is also a matching lingerie piece that can be worn under the sheer overlay (click HERE to see that piece). The strapless gown is beautifully textured with a simple design, which lends itself to adding accessories, if the bride wishes. The overlay is made of a sheer fabric and features an intricate appliqué design and a subtle rhinestone belt, which is a separate piece and can also be worn with the strapless gown, as shown here.
This shoot was held on a beautifully sunny winter day in and around Kate’s home/studio in Scio, Oregon. Our model, Christina, holds a beautifully unique bouquet, designed by Amanda Dant of Morning Glories Floral. We could not have asked for a more perfect day. There is just something about the winter sun that makes me so happy.Morning Glories Floral
