Not a Total Loss

Isn't this a darling bride!





She sent me a cute note last year when I entered my dress design for the shabby apple contest and asked if it would be OK if she used the design as the inspiration for her wedding dress. Of course I said YES!

And then this year when I re-entered the dress, she sent me photos of her in the actual dress inspired by mine, and the big day. I was tickled to say the least.



Aren't they just adorable?




The funny thing is that I have no idea where she is from (she speaks English but I have no clue what language is on the photos...which makes me feel fairly ignorant...$1 to anyone who can tell me!) or even her name! But I am just thrilled that I got to contribute just a tiny bit to her special day.

And you know... Newly-wed blissful love looks the same in any language.





And even if Shabby Apple doesn't love my dress...somebody did.





Don't you want to put on your wedding dress and twirl around for photos now?

I do...

  8. Well, if that isn't just the coolest thing! To think you influenced a Russian bride with your design. Amazing. The bride looked really cute too!

  9. If you look at the close up of the wedding cake, there is a little heart on the table that says:
    HactЯ + Anna (or Ayna)?

    I don't know who I am more impressed with. Danielle for someone wearing her dress for their wedding, or Vanessa for saying she wants her payment in the form of a video chat with Avery in Russian!!!
