Although we certainly don't specialize in vintage wedding dresses we do occasionally dress a bride or a girl in the bridal party and have dressed more guests over the years then we can count. Providing the bride or one of her bridal party girls with a dress can sometimes be a tough route to go when you only sell online. Brides, and to a lesser degree, her bridesmaids, really need to try, try, try a zillion dresses on. That is after all a part of the fun isn't it? That all being said we do get the occasional vintage-savvy bride or bridesmaid that knows exactly what she wants and how vintage fits and for her there is no other choice.

That was the case with the lovely Leta, who just happens to sell vintage herself, so she was a girl who knew what she wanted. She contacted me about this wonderful 1960s maxi dress by Miss Elliette with its fantastic chiffon sleeves. I sent it off to her and quickly received an email back that it was perfect. A couple of months later I received these amazing photos!

A huge congratulations to Audrey Hicks and Ryan Clark - Mr. and Mrs. Clark now - and I am so very happy to have played a teeny little part in your special day. If I do say so myself (even though I really had nothing to do with it but I will take some credit anyway), Leta looked all kinds of gorgeous!



The dress that Leta purchased - a 1960s Angel Sleeve Deep Burgundy Chiffon Dress from Shrimpton Couture
