We first met Melinda, her Mom and Aunt when they arrived at The Blushing Bride boutique in January 2015. Melinda was living in New Mexico, and her wedding would be taking place at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi , http://www.cbsfa.org/. Melinda’s vision held true to every little girls vision, she wanted the princess fairytale wedding and she needed the dress to perfect compliment her vision for her day. Well, it had just so happened that we were having a Trunk Show that specific weekend she arrived for Val Stefani Couture, and we had the perfect dress in mind for her fairytale wedding. The beauty about partnering with a designer such as Val Stefani, is that we are able to truly customize every dress. Melinda had a huge Cathedral to fill… with her dress… can you imagine? Well, we didn’t necessary want volume, but we needed a dramatic entrance. The best possible way to fulfill this request… let’s extend her train by an additional 3 feet. Even though the designer at first was a bit hesitant, just because they were worried it would add extra weight to the back of the dress… we opted for it, and it turned out to be absolutely stunning! You will see from the photos her train was one of the best, most elaborate features of her gown, and her veil was also complimentary to her overall look. We extended the length of her veil to match and overlay her train, it was pure perfection for Melinda’s fairytale wedding!
