Clear those schedules wedding mavens. We have a day chock full of Elizabeth Messina and this Queen of Photography is sharing everything from jaw-dropping gowns to her brand new book + a giveaway and right on through to a lovely real wedding. It's Messina Madness. But first, we're diving head long into layers of Dreamy McDreaminess in the form of short dresses, long dresses, pretty dresses, so freaking fabulous we want to eat them dresses all crafted by Kirstie Kelly. Who is a genius. A beautiful frock making genius and we have the exclusive sneak peak of her 2013 collection right here. Let the collective sighs begin and be sure to stop by the gallery for so much more.
From Kirstie Kelly...Airy, elegant and timeless - the 2013 collection features beautiful Belgian lace, hand cut floral details with intricate crystal and gem beading and tiny feather weight embroidery stitches. I worked with mixing textures and colors to create cloud like romance and storytelling. While all the gowns are very detailed they don't overshadow the bride, because they are light and airy and soft in tone. The bride always appears as a vision of beauty before noticing the details of the gown.
We had so much fun shooting the collection with Elizabeth Messina at the Hahn Estate! I feel very blessed that we were allowed to shoot in the extraordinary rooms of the estate and the gardens were a perfect backdrop for the new collection as it was inspired by both botanicals and by the brides I have worked with over the past year and what their desires were for the perfect wedding dress, There is something in this Collection for everyone, and I thank all the women who collectively were the inspiration for this line. The entire 2013 Collection can be viewed at www.kirstiekelly.com and please check out my new blog at www.kirstiekelly.com/blog.
