Wearing a custom, couture  wedding gown is the dream of many brides. For one lucky girl, my Bride-to-Be, Hayley, that dream is coming true! After visiting a few bridal shops, Hayley turned to Las Vegas local and couture designer Megan Thompson, owner of Mina Olive, and together they are creating a dress just for Hayley. 

Having started this process many months ago, we actually had to halt production because Miss Hayley has been losing weight at a rapid pace for the wedding.  She, along with her fiancé, Bryan, are doing T-25 and the results have been amazing! 

Tools if the Trade. Mini- form, belt detailing, fabric, and scissors - everything needed for the making of a custom wedding gown!

But the time had come! Today, we picked up the process again with a fitting. I don't want to give to much away, but wanted to share just a few snapshots and take you along on the journey of what I like to call the Making of a Wedding Dress. 

According to Hayley, "This has been just the most magical experience!  It's been amazing! It's absolutely my most favorite part of the wedding...knowing that I will have a dress that no one else has ever had, or will ever have, had been the best thing ever. I feel like a Princess."

We are a mere 8 weeks away from Hayley & Bryan's wedding. I cannot wait until you see her gown! And everything else we have planned!
