Natalie and Rick's Groomals

Ashlee Raubach did such a wonderful job on this shoot.  I love a photographer who will capture the folds and details of the dress.  I know I say it a lot, but it is so important to me.  You should check out the rest of the shoot on this blog.  Really great work.   

I love the richness of the location.  I love the warm tones on the photographs.  But especially, I love the cute couple.  No, they are more than just cute.  They look perfect together. 

Here is the long rambling story that sort of has to do with this dress.  I was at the dentist waiting for my kids and, of course, I was hand sewing.  It was quite pleasant.  With the help of the dentist, I was multitasking.  In walked Zina, this really fabulous person from High School.  She asked me about the Knit dress.  It was surreal that she knew about the dress.  It was serendipitous to run into someone and already know how she was doing because of her blog, and to have her know how I was fairing made me feel so... not alone, for lack of  better words.

I love to see these shoots.  I can now relax about the knit dress because Natalie wears the gown well.  Do you all like the different gown idea?  Of course I am always happy when a bride re-invents how a bride should look.  I think it reads bridal from the simple veil to the shoes.  Great job Natalie.

I'm so impressed by this dress. What type of knit did you use? Is it on the bias? If these are trade secrets, just disregard them.

I love to read your blog and see what you're doing. When I'm having bad days, I come and go through all your posts again. You are incredible!

Hi Sherry,
Thanks for the comment. The knit was a silk knit. No bias cut for this one it was great that way. The problem, it was hard to find a needle that didn't pierce and break the fabric each and every needle hole even though it was a ball point one. AHHHH! I finally used a little enough needle and that "helped" the problem. It was a learning experience.
