Real Bride: Celeste’s Wedding in Lake Tahoe, California

There are so many beautiful aspects to Celeste’s wedding dress which she wears for her wedding ceremony held in a veritable heaven on earth, South Lake Tahoe. Celeste expressed her desire to have a dress that would suit this romantic location and have something dramatic, with the feel of a ball gown, but without the added weight. We decided on a gown that featured a lace corset with a network of boning that accentuated her figure. The corset top was enhanced by adding a belt with 3 lovely little organza flowers on the side. As for the skirt, we introduced the use of multiple layered of sheer shimmering organza that added the volume but kept it light and airy.

Celeste had an additional request. She had planned a wedding reception in Malaysia and wanted a fresh new look. Could we work around those ever-present budget constraints? Of course! Our solution was to design a bridal gown that has “dual-looks”. Enhance the lace corset with detachable features and match it with a silk satin mermaid skirt and voila – a completely different look! We will feature this second look in Part 2 of this series. Check back soon!
