Stately Black Tie Sacramento Wedding

Deborah met Eric through Match.com, where a a picture of his dog caught her eye. She contacted him first, and the conversation is still going strong. Eric's dog, Syd, became a big part of the bride's life blending well with her two bichons. They have since sent all three to doggy heaven and recently adopted a new fur baby, Dash, cheekily calling him their illegitimate child as he came to them before their wedding.

On their third unofficial anniversary, Eric proposed. The wedding took place at The Sutter Club, a private club across the street from the California State Capitol Building in Sacramento, CA. Boasting Spanish architecture, this beautiful building has been the location of many happy family occasions for Deborah. A true family affair, Deborah and Eric's children served as key members of the wedding party. Deborah's son walked her down the aisle while her daughter served as maid of honor and Eric's son as the best man.

For their elegant black tie affair, Deborah chose to wear our Charlotte gown, a cowl neck silk crepe wedding dress. Congratulations to Deborah and Eric! May your continue to grow and evolve with time.

Sentimental Missouri Wedding At Wine Country Gardens

Wine Country Gardens in St. Charles County, Missouri provided the backdrop to Tracy and Kiff’s exuberant outdoor wedding. Tracy chose the Charlotte wedding gown, an elegant cowl neck silk crepe wedding dress by Trish Lee Bridal. She accessorized her gown with jewelry from the family. In Tracy's own words, “The ring was a custom rose gold setting using the diamond from his mother's ring - she passed away when Kiff was a teenager. His ring was custom made, using the gold from his mother's earrings and rings. Both are very special to us, and I know that he was happy to have a reminder of his mother with him everyday." The couple, who spent their first date looking for bald eagles, also brought the fun. Tracy matched her family jewels with a sparkling crystal bridal belt and hot pink satin heels while Kiff paired his tux with a bowtie made of feathers.

From the designer: Tracy is one of those women that makes a strong impression on you. She has hair the color of steel and a smile that will blind you. As we got to know each other better, I found out that Tracy works with Burmese refugees, which struck a chord with me since my family is from Burma. When Tracy came for her last gown fitting, she gave me a parting gift: a beautifully woven traditional blouse and sarong made by one of her Burmese students. I shared this with my mother and she was amazed and touched by Tracy's kindness. Tracy, I wish you and Kiff, a love everlasting and life full of joy.
