romance wednesday: we heart kelly clarkson’s farm wedding

our all-time favorite American Idol alum Kelly Clarkson wed her beau, Brandon Blackstock, on October 20 this year, in one of the loveliest intimate ceremonies we have seen for awhile. they held their nuptials at the gorgeous Blackberry Farm in Walland Tennessee, attended only by Brandon’s son and daughter. the intimate ceremony took place under the shelter of a covered wooden bridge in the picturesque woods of the resort, decorated simply in rustic string lights that haloed the couple.

kelly was stunning in a Temperley London lace gown featuring a dramatic front and back v-neck and sheer lace sleeves, edged in a gorgeous scallop. the silhouette of the gown was clean and soft, elegantly accenting kelly’s ladylike figure. the softly ruffled lace skirts were subtly beautiful, accented simply by the scallop of the gorgeous lace edge. her hair was our favorite part, a soft and perfectly messy updo that blended an undone, woodsy vibe with a chic and modern beauty. her asymmetrical side sweep perfectly framed her face, and she topped the look with a sparkly jeweled headband nestled into the ‘do. she was just stunning!

we heart vintage pieces turned new again

you know how much we love re-working stunning pieces into a fresh and modern piece for today’s bride… this is the story of an extra-special, unforgettable one!

a mom-of-the-bride gave us a call with a very special request- turn her stunning heirloom, a crystal-encrusted belt from her big day, into a headpiece for her daughter’s upcoming nuptials.

the belt was stunning, hand-detailed with countless little sparkly wonders – crystals and sequins and beads, oh my! we snapped a few before photos of the belt…

it was almost tear-enducing cutting up such a spectacular piece of art, but her idea of creating a custom comb was just fabulous.

we created a headpiece using a small section of the belt. but for the big day, a veil too was in order. we created a ruffled pencil edge veil, but rather than affixing it directly to the headpiece that we created, we added a secret row of buttons on the underside. this way, after the wedding, she is now able to remove the veil and wear the stunning comb again and again as a reminder of her special day!

wasn’t she absolutely stunning? so romantic!
