Brittany first appeared in our inbox with an inquiry about a custom red wedding gown. The day of her appointment arrived and in walked a dazzling blonde, her arms full of magazine pages and a pinterest board devoted to red dresses.
Let's call a spade a spade here. We love a left-field bride, but this was a big statement, and her mother and I looked on with anticipation as Brittany slipped on one white dress after another before she eventually came to a red one.
She was irrefutably, incontestably, and stunningly... right.
The girl lit up the room in red; nothing else came close. To this day, why this is true of Brittany and a red dress is still something of mystery.
Anyway, magical color established, Kathryn immediately began sketching into Brittany's requirements: V-neck, drop waist, deep ruby red silk? Check, check, and check.
Enjoy the breath-taking result on this Lady in Red, married one fine November day in historic lower Manhattan.
(And can we also just note the fact that she got to flip the traditional bride-in-white, maids-in-color move - and added red shoes to complete her ladies' outfits? I mean, come on. How amazing is that?!)
