style spotlight: ruffled edge veil

ruffles. just the word itself brings countless lovely images to our minds… dramatically oversized victorian-era dresses… elaborately tiered wedding cakes… perfectly feminine ballerina tutus… gorgeous flowers. it is these most extravagantly layered flowers, their texture and form and design, that inspired the style for our ruffled pencil edge veil.ruffles_victoriandress_celosia_peonies_cabbage_hydrangea

celosia, an extraordinary and unique flower

cabbage, a surprising beauty in purples and greens

hydrangea, a classic summer flower with a spectacular blossom

peonies, a softly feminine yet bold bloom

the softly layered and rhythmic lines of these ruffled blooms inspired the style that exudes subtle elegance, yet creates quite an unforgettable look. it is daintily feminine, photographs beautifully, and remains classic, standing the test of time while standing out as a modern twist on a traditional look. it’s one of our favorite, and one of our most popular, styles

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!
