Exquisitely Embellished Ever After

Today we start a marathon of mini features. So buckle up and enjoy hopping from one gorgeous wedding to another. These minis will highlight our ultimate faves in the wedding scene. I hope you like it.

Let’s start with this beauty. Perry and Joy’s wedding was everything exquisite. I am particularly loving the super intricately embellished top of Joy’s gown (yes, it’s a two-piece!). From the beginning Joy knew what she wanted and was determined to get it. If your fashion radar is updated on the current show stoppers, you would know Bea Valdes, a luxury accessories designer in the Philippines. Although Bea Valdes is not really known for bridal wear, Joy knew she wanted Bea to design her dress. Through careful and painstakingly meticulous work of sewing layers and layers of fine embellished fabric, this wonderful piece of art was created. But with these beautiful embellishments flown in from different parts of the world, who wouldn’t mind waiting?

I love the fabric and styles of Joy’s entourage. The ecru lace and tulle gave a sophisticated and classic look. Joy and her entourage collaborated on the designs, bought the fabric themselves and had her personal seamstress to the dresses. DIY rocks!
