Dress of the Week

This bride’s dress is positively ethereal. It looks straight out of a scene from a movie. The wedding, set in Big Sur, California between the ocean and a Redwood grove, is just stunning, and obviously lends itself perfectly to these pictures.


From Joy (Thigpen), Creative Director: “Cheryl (the dress designer) made {the bride} a wisp of a dress that was so light I swear it would have floated away on the wind if given the chance. We tied little seashells into her mermaid hair with tiny fishtail braids.”
