  • Custom Bridal Garter Spotlight: La Gartier Bride Christin Danielle's Iowa Hawkeyes and Iridescent Sparkle Wedding Garter Set

    When I first spoke with La Gartier bride Christin Danielle on the phone, I instantly knew that she was the type of person who lit up a room when she walked in. Her personality was fun, enthusiastic and inspired. 
    After listening to her talk about what she wanted for her garter design, I just knew that Christin and I were going to get along. Little did I know that the garter set that would be born of our meeting would end up being a direct reflection of her personality as well as her relationship: fun, inspired, and sparkly. 
    The elements of Christin's design were so multi-layered and SPECIAL that I can't think of anything else to do but bullet-point them! Scroll through the photos and the written tid bits of information below to learn more about this oh-so-sporty, oh-so sparkly, oh-so-Christin wedding garter set!!!

    Christin's keepsake garter was a limited-edition iridescent version of our Vienna garter, picked to match the colorful, playful vibe of Christin's personality.

    We made 2 different toss garters for her-- one to pass down to her daughter someday and one to actually throw during her reception. Both were Iowa Hawkeyes-inspired to symbolize a passion that both Christin and her fiancé share: the Iowa Hawkeyes!!

    We hand-sewed Christin's wedding hashtag #therealadamsfamily on the inside of her keepsake garter. My favorite part? We did it in navy blue for her "something blue"!!!! 💙

    The back band of Christin's garter was made using a fine alençon lace that was chosen to match the lace on her wedding gown. Then, to make her design even more meaningful, Christin mailed us a pearl bracelet that once belonged to her mother one sunny day last August. We then cut the string and pulled off twenty pearls to use as embellishments along the surface of the back band of her keepsake. Do you see all of the tiny fresh water pearls sewed along the back band of her garter? (see photo above) Those little pearl beauties used to be worn around her mother's wrist. And that's all that I'm going to say about that ...because Christin's mother passed away recently and it breaks my heart to write about. But now Christin will have a special, symbolic piece of her mother with her as she walks down the aisle, which is pretty much #LoveMagic if you ask me. 
    Happy La Gartier everyone. If you or someone you love would like to have a beautiful, meaning-laden wedding garter made, please feel free to contact us at
  • Jimmy Choo's Luna heels with our limited edition iridescent rhinestone "Sydney" garter

    If Jimmy Choo were in a boxing ring with Christian Louboutin or Guiseppe Zanotti, I would bet on Jimmy Choo everytime. Wait. Actually, I take that back. If Jimmy Choo were in a boxing ring with Christian Louboutin and Guiseppe Zanotti, I would bet my money on Jimmy Choo everytime. 
    (Side thought: think scrawny but scrappy Englishman named Jimmy in a ring against two men that are larger than him-- one is a beret-wearing Parisian artist named Christian  and the other is a hefty, linguini-obsessed Italian named Guiseppe Zanotti. Yeah. I would still bet on Jimmy.)
    Suffice to say, Jimmy Choo is my favorite designer of luxury bridal shoes...and not just because I think that they are the prettiest. I also have heard that they are the most comfortable from many of my MRS. friends and clients.
    So, you can imagine my utter joy last month when photographer Brandi Schaffran-Webb of Alexis June Weddings sent me over a dozen photos of our new "Sydney" garter paired next to Jimmy Choo's new "Luna" heels!!! The Luna heels are one of my favorites on the market at the moment because they are inspired by the night sky, which is exactly what Hayley Paige's recent collection personifies. In fact, I love this motif so much that we recently released a limited-edition garter called the "Sydney" (see pics below) which was inspired by something I call "Galactic Glam" (think of the same night sky, celestial romance, star-chic look that both Hayley P. and Jimmy Choo are channelling at the moment. Below are both photos of our phenomenal "Sydney" garter as well as Jimmy Choo's Luna heels. (a perfect and oh-so original "something blue" if I ever did see one. Hint hint)
