Brides who love quartz are some of my favorite brides in the entire world. There is always something so loving, bohemian and fantasy-like about them. It is almost as if a Disney princess collided with a mother-earth-loving, music-festival going hippie girl...and to be honest--- I can never get enough of it! That is exactly what happened when I met La Gartier bride Jacqueline LaBeau who wanted something personalized for her wedding, but didn't want to lose sight of her wedding budget. For this reason, Jacqueline booked a semi-custom spot with us last February!!She thought about her options carefully before choosing the semi-custom as the definite route for her wedding spending plan. However, after viewing all of her choices (especially the charm choices!) she told us that she felt she could express her personal style and achieve an heirloom-worthy-look within the semi-custom design choices.Um, but do you know what I love? I don't think that Jacqueline knew just how much she was going to LOVE her final wedding garter set until she saw photos. (See images below!)Jacqueline chose the Hayley garter due to the fact that she was wearing a Hayley Paige gown on her wedding day. (side note: she also fangirls HARD over HP, so wearing any other designer was out of the question.)For her statement charm, Jacqueline picked out the clear Aura quartz pendant. Why might you ask? Jackie loves all things mystical like astrology, stones that heal, energy readings and-- most importantly-- her yoga-master boyfriend Aaron Spagling. (look him up on instagram immediately! He is incredible!)For this reason, Jacqueline felt that the clear Aura quartz pendant expressed not only her personal style but also her relationship beautifully.
The final product came out so unbelievably gorgeous. To make her set even more personalized, Jacqueline picked the baby blue embroidery thread from our collection so as to cross off her "something blue" by way of her initials and Aaron's initials. (not to mention their wedding date!)
Interested in having a semi-custom garter set made for yourself or someone that you love? Then we have you covered! Currently, we are booked until June of 2019 for custom designs but as long as your wedding falls on or after July 1st of 2019, then we would LOVE to work with you!

Every once and a Texas moon, I will have the opportunity to create a custom wedding garter design for a bride as a gift from the bride's sister. <insert tons of LOLS> This was DEFINITELY the case last October when I worked with Amanda Champline of La Vallee Bridal to create a custom garter set for her twin sister Michelle Champline.Actually- let me back track a little and explain: in 2018, La Gartier was fortunate enough to meet Amanda Champline, an absolute, drop dead beauty who was preparing to open her very first bridal store in Vail, Colorado. After partnering and working to provide La Vallee with some of the chicest, mountain-inspired wedding garters on this planet, Amanda sent me a very kind email one Sunday afternoon, asking me if I would be interested in creating a custom piece for her beloved twin sister Michelle.Without even hearing the details of her request, I agreed immediately. Full disclosure: I have been a huge fan of Amanda from the very first time I met her over the phone, so the idea of designing something for her twin sister was a project that I welcomed immediately. And I am so happy that I did! Amanda's ideas for Michelle's garters were amazing. She asked me if she could send me a custom Navy Seal pendant to symbolilze her soon-to-be-hubby's Navy roots (first idea) and then asked me if we could use Michelle's stunning Inbal Dror dress as the base inspiration for the body of the garter.Wondering how Michelle's garter came out? Scroll down to see photos of her beautiful personalized garter set!! (not to mention her custom hankie!)And make sure to read the written captions below each photo to learn how each detail within Michelle's beautiful custom garter design symbolizes an aspect of her relationship, her wedding day style, and what might possibly be one of 2018's classiest weddings.Michelle's toss was made using hunter green vintage velvet-- chosen to match one of the primary colors used in her wedding. At the center was one single gold charm that read "family" <3Michelle holding her custom La Gartier hankie that read "Little Onion 4 Life" -- (a private saying that she and her hubby share!)Isn't her Inbal Dror gown gorgeous? Michelle found it at her twin sister's bridal shop in Vail -- La Vallee Bridal.Another beautiful photo of Michelle's custom garter set.

As 2017 comes to a close, we can't help but look back on this year and feel sentimental. (pretty sure this is called catching feels?)
2017 was a year of tremendous growth for us. From new clients to a new space (not to mention a Cyber Monday sale that made all previous years pale in comparison), this year truly sparkled . For this reason, we decided to make a quick video that highlights a few of our favorite "sparkle" moments from 2017, Maybelline-painted flowers and all.
True story: creating wedding garters for engaged women around the world is pretty much a dream job. It is something we feel TRULY BLESSED to be able to do and something I make a note to thank the universe for everyday. To me, our design studio is a magical place- literally filled with treasure and beauty and inspiration. This quick 60 second video will (hopefully) give you a glimpse into the magic that happens here as well as the gratitude that lines our walls.
Proof that details are everything,
