The Wedding Party Look
WEDDING GOWN designed by Crystena Hemingway:
Multi-generation wedding gown /cream gown:
This one of a kind gown is made from an array of dresses and lace from the 20’s through the 70’s.
Each layer along with every stitch was mindfully placed to create a feeling of antiquity and past generation craft.
Tangerine Dream Dress with Layered Lace Petticoat:
For this dress I (Crystena) was looking for a vibrant fiesta vibe and Frida feel which came together by hand-dying a collection of vintage dresses and antique laces. To add versatility I created a petticoat with layers of vintage cream coloured lace beginning at knee level.
HAIR designed by Cortney Riegel:
Simple, elegant and polished braided up styles perfect for brides and bridesmaids.
MAKEUP designed by Cassandra Pierro:
For the makeup, the look was all about bold brows for the brides and vibrant lips for the entire bridal party. Cassandra achieved this look by first shaping the brows with threading then filling in with brow pencil. Temptu Pro airbrush foundation was used to give the skin a flawless look and OCC Lip Tar was used on the lips to accent the bright colors of the accessories and flower crowns.

BRIDESMAIDS ATTIRE collaborative design by Bootleg + Rekindled Garments
Upcycled Purple Lace Dress
Designed by Crystena Hemingway of Rekindled Garments:
“It is the perfect balance of sexy and classy. This is a one of a kind dress made from a collection of garments that I have fallen in love with for one reason or another and pieced together to create a “rekindled” design. It featured hand dyed fabrics and vintage lace daringly placed. It can be tied at shoulders for an extreme open back or at neckline and across middle of your back for added support. It has a clasp closure along low back and has enough coverage that it can be worn without a bra.”
