|2011 @ our friend's wedding.|
I was nervous and excited but more nervous because I was worried about our timeline. Amber scheduled her consultation with me, and was one of my first clients at the new showroom. At our consultation Amber informed me that she already had her wedding gown. She had asked me to create 2 dresses that were completely different. One of them would be for her rehearsal (which we would name the Amber dress) and one for the reception (which we would call the Harper dress).
At our consultation Amber told me a few things she wanted but left it up to be to have full artistic freedom. It was so much fun to work with Amber, sometimes fittings can be stressful because some clients aren't sure of what they want, too picky or have expectations for a design that isn't achievable within their budget.
The best part about working with a friend, is that I am apart of their special day. It is terribly embarrassing that I cry during our fittings. I didn't realize how much of an emotional person I am. I pour my heart and soul into each dress and so when I see a friend wearing something I made for them, it just pulls at my heart.

They had a drink named the Harperita. Amber did a great job planning her day. I loved her take on the guest book. She had paper mache letters spelling out LOVE, where guests where instructed to sign with a sharpie. The photo booth was an awesome touch. And the food stations where unique to the couple consisting of taco bar, pasta bar and a carving station. I don't think the dance floor was ever empty. It was a such a great time.
Thank You Amber and Brent for allowing me to be apart of your special day. xo Sheila
