hey, lovely!


I wanted something that when I looked at photos in 20+ years, would still look relevant and not dated. I wanted to feel like a bride, but also feel like myself in whatever dress I chose, and that dress for me was Tamarisk. It's bridal fashion past, present and future all in one dress.

It's Downtown Abbey meets David Bowie!

I'm a tomboy by definition and I think everyone expected me to choose something really boyish but ended up with a sort of backless dress. Keep in mind I hate wearing dresses, but when I put it on I loved the material. It was super comfy and I completely forgot it was a a dress. 

The dress was surprisingly me!


I loved it from the moment I tried it on. The night before my second appointment I had trouble sleeping. I was too excited to try on the dress again!

It was worth the sleepless night.
