  • Custom Garter Spotlight: La Gartier Bride Natalie Pack's Viszla-Inspired, Sparkle-Blasted Wedding Garter Set

    If you have seen a Guess advertisement over the past 3 years, chances are that you have seen Natalie Pack's face. She is quickly becoming one of America's most-beloved supermodels, known for her work with not only Guess but also CK1, America's Next Top Model and more. But there are a few things about Natalie that her high-gloss, incredibly alluring images don't convey. And no-- I'm not talking about her diet and fitness regimen. I'm talking about her down-to-earth side..the side of her that's just like you and me: that is to say- the part of her that LOVES her dog. Seriously though, this girl loves her pooch more than the average dog-lover, which is saying A LOT if you are from a canine-centered family like me. (Or if you live in Colorado. No joke. The name of this state should be the dog-loving state.) 😂😂

     

    If you follow Natalie on instagram, then you have most likely caught a glimpse of her beloved Viszla "Fig."

     

    And if you haven't, then you must go immediately and check him out!! To say that he is handsome is a total understatement.😍

    So, when Katherine Webb got in touch with me a few months ago about creating a custom garter set for Natalie (#BestiePoints💯), it was only natural that I immediately suggested adding some sort of canine-inspired element to Natalie's design. So what does that look like might you ask? How can you make canine chic and elegant? Well, if you have the help of a designer called Esquivel and Fees. That is, after much searching, Natalie and I found an incredible jewelry designer in Houston, Texas that hand-casts each sterling silver pendant that they make, ensuring that each pendant is unique and PERFECT. What did we order might you ask? Well, a sterling silver Vizsla pendant of course!!! Scroll through the images below to see how each detail of Natalie's garter set represents either her wedding, her unmistakable bridal style or her relationship with actor Aaron O'connell.

    Can you believe the detail in that Vizsla-pendant?!?!!  Talk about high-quality. This little baby was created by a shop in Houston, Texas called Esquivel and Fees and I honestly don't know why they aren't worldwide famous. That is how much I love them.

    I am not sure if #CanineChic is a thing, but if it isn't, then it should be. Can I get an AMEN?

    something blue

    Her "something blue" is hidden on the inside of her garter via two embroidered patches: one for her wedding date and one for her and her fiance's initials. 

    The lace on the back band of Natalie's garters was selected based off of the lace on her gorgeous wedding gown. (I can't say the designer until after the wedding but I promise I'll be posting tons of pics!!)

    Because everything looks better when it is placed inside of a La Gartier box.

  • Custom Garter Spotlight: La Gartier bride Becca Lenois' Greecian Opal Princess and Lace Bridal Garter

    Every once and a greecian moon, I will have the opportunity to create a custom wedding garter design for a bride who doesn't even know she wants one. <insert tons of LOLS>  This was DEFINITELY the case last month when I worked with La Gartier bride Rebecca Lenois, who was gifted a custom wedding garter by her good friend (and one of our beloved past clients" Jill Sullivan Pasparikas. Jill contacted me and told me that she wanted her good friend Rebecca to have the same custom experience as herself, so she booked Rebecca's custom spot over a year ago, ensuring that she would have her garter in time for her wedding. Two months ago, I had the honor of e-meeting Rebecca and learning all about her relationship, her wedding and her personal style. The custom design that ensued is hands down one of the most beautiful and unique Greek-inspired custom garters ever created. (Cue music from the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding.) Wondering what made Rebecca's garter so gorgeous? Scroll down to see photos of her beautiful personalized garter!! And make sure to read the written captions below each photo to learn how each detail within Rebecca'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. 
    Interested in having a custom garter made for yourself? Please email us at info@lagartier.com to book your custom spot. Right now, we are completely booked until July of 2018 but as long as you are not getting married until August 1st of 2018 or sometime thereafter, then there is still time!!

    The pendant that we purchased for the center of Rebecca's garter is pretty much my favorite piece of jewelry in the world. It was a vintage gold and silver pendant with the greek key symbol around the edges. 
    At the center of the pendant is the owl. In ancient Greece, the owl is a symbol and also the symbol of Goddess Athena.

    For her base, Rebecca selected our "Athena" garter not only due to the name but also because she loved the rhinestone and opal detailing within it. After looking at her gown and her other accessories, it was a no-brainer.
    For Rebecca's "something blue", we decided to have her wedding date as well as her initials sewn into the inside of her garter. Talk about a beautiful personalized detail, right?

    My favorite details? The lace on the back band of Rebecca's garter matched the lace on her gorgeous wedding gown. All the heart eyes for fine french lace.

  • Glitter Trampoline Jump for 20K Followers

     

    Last week, our instagram following jumped from 18K to 21K in less than 24 hours. At some point around 18.1K, I told all of our followers that once we hit 20K, we would dump a TON of glitter on a trampoline and jump around in it. At that time, I had no idea that we would surpass 20K and move onto 21K in a matter of hours. (Thank goodness for the Amazon Prime expedited shipping! I honestly have no idea how we would have gotten 5 pounds of glitter in 2 days!) 

    So, a few days ago, my good friend Carly Mearman and I drove up to Roswell with a great outdoor speaker system and #SparkleExecuted what is possibly the girliest thing to ever happen to trampolines. 

    I'm not going to lie - the combination of glitter and Atlanta summertime humidity isn't the most comfortable combination in the world, but we pulled it off with sparkling colors. (pun intended? yaaasss girl.)

    It took 5 lbs. of glitter, the best GF in the world, and a generous-hearted friend who didn't mind loaning us her trampoline to make good on our 20K Glitter Trampoline promise. (Side note: How much does it matter that no one over the age of 13 has ever done this before? I'm going to take your silence to mean that it's totally fine.)

     No, but seriously--  I can't thank our followers enough for staying so loyal through the years. Your support means the world to us and we couldn't continue to grow and thrive as a small business without you. My adolescent business owner hearts wants to break into a million tiny pieces when I think of how far we've come. And how many stitches it has taken to get here. By the way, total disclosure:  It's two days later and I still can't get the glitter out of my hair. I've showered fours times and used every type of shampoo/body wash that I own. But you know what? I wouldn't trade it for the world. It was worth every second and thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping us hit 20K!

    (Special thanks to the best girlfriend in the world, Carly Mearman, for getting your sparkle on with me. I'm sorry about your shower.)

    Another special thank you to Holly Trizzino of Intimately Inspiring Photography for letting us borrow the trampoline. I am still floored that you let us do this.

     Lastly, all the music that you hear in this video is from a DJ named Kygo. It does not belong to us in any way shape or form.
