Lady Grey's Dream Comes True
Lady Grey, local SoCal wedding blogger Summer Watkins of Grey Like's Weddings, had the chance of finally creating her own fairytale wedding after years of following Pinterest ideas and picturesque inspirations.After being swept off her feet by Bryan Ball, they joined together as partners, and he became the business manager of Grey Likes Weddings. She had more experience than most with finding and creating a romantic vision, so she was fully equipped with bridal secrets and experience for her special day!
The hardest aspect of her journey went beyond the scope of DIY and decor ideas. Exploring the vast array of gown options was overwhelming for this wedding expert. Be Inspired PR recommended that she explore the designs here at Kirstie Kelly Collections. She worked closely with Kirstie to design her dream dress, and to give her the custom fit and image that she had always wanted.
Kirstie envisioned an ivory silk corset bodice with frothy ballgown skirt for Summer. The silk dupioni bodice was embroidered with thousands of stitches creating detailed imagery throughout. while the skirt floated with silk organza It was such a lovely experience to help adorn the wedding enthusiast herself for her Green and Gold Celebration at the Sunstone Villa. We were delighted to be a part of her special day and thrilled to see the feature in Martha Stewart Weddings!
