Being a color-passionate, as a personality trait, is something I have learned not every possesses. I used to think every in the world had a favorite color that they were transfixed by every time they saw it. <cue deer in headlights frozen body language.> However as I grew up, I slowly discovered that there are only a few people on this earth that feel strongly about one particular color, and fill their life up with it as often and as "extra" as possible.
I try not to play favorites when it comes to our custom wedding garter designs, but there is no denying that there was one very special Tiffany blue garter design that sticks out like a gorgeous gem from 2018. Actually- let me back track a little and explain: Every once and awhile, I will have the opportunity to design a garter for a bride who has known her soon-to-be-hubby since high school or, better yet, has been dating her soon-to-be-hubby since high school. <insert happy squeal sound from deep down. Seriously. So romantic.>
This was DEFINITELY the case a few months ago when I worked with La Gartier bride Cristina Bulifant, who told me she loved the color purple more than anything in the world. (I loved her instantly.)
She emailed us one bright, spring day with one simple request: could we create a custom garter set for her December 2018 wedding that somehow combined her love of purple with her husband's love of Ford Mustangs? To say that I was immediately taken aback by the sheer uniqueness of this request-- not to mention Cristina's clarity of vision-- would be an UNDERSTATEMENT. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined a creation process filled with gold vintage ford mustang charms, vintage lavender velvet with silk inner lining, more sparkle than either of us new what to do with, (just kidding. we knew what to do with it.) and the prettiest tiffany blue details to boot.
