As Khris embarks on her handmade gown journey, I thought it only “fitting” to include a wedding with handmade gown. (Get it? Wedding gown humor…Sorry, I had to.) The dress is so often one of the most anticipated parts of planning process. So when your mom is as seriously talented as Michelle’s mom, I’m pretty sure it’s safe to assume you’ll be in good hands. Once you check out this stunning mom-made gown, you will certainly see why sometimes mommy does know best. With a solid plan of splurging only on two things, their venue and their photographer, Jill Lauren Photography was the perfect choice to seamlessly snapp Michelle and Joe’s custom fit wedding at Wrigley Mansion.
Talent like Michelle’s mom’s tends to run in families and you can see the proof in the impressive cream, pink, and succulent bouquets arranged by Michelle. The centerpieces and Wrigley gum favors added that sweet touch of fun to a sophisticated day. The one thing I love most is when photos capture how much fun the couple is. You just see it their smiles! Michelle and Joe get it. As lovely as the DIY injected into the day was, they never seemed to take things too seriously. It was about love, and personality and sharing the day with the people you love. And a good old fashioned cake smushing never hurts either!
Thanks Jill Lauren Photography for shooting this made to order day of DIY loveliness with the same sweetness and sophistication as Michelle and Joe. Congratulations Michelle and Joe!
