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!!

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

This summer has been the summer of hand-written thank you notes from our brides! It seems that almost every time I check our studio mail box, we have another heart-warming note from one of our past clients. Recently, it came to my attention that we don't have a place on the website for customer reviews quite yet (bear with us-- the website is still SO.DARN.NEW.)So, in an attempt to show you all just how amazing our customer reviews really are, I have uploaded a few of our most recent customer hand-written notes below! We should have a gorgeous review platform built into the website by Thanksgiving, however for now, here are a few testimonials from our past brides for you to see! (Btw- a huge thank you Kama, Lindsey and Stephanie for having hearts of gold!)

There is nothing like starting a new work week with a brand new feature on one of the most popular wedding blogs in America. Seriously, if I had to pick between a brand new pair of Louboutins and a press feature as lovely as this, I would pick the press every single time. Suffice to say, I knew that this week was off to a great start when the uber-well-known wedding blog Elizabeth Anne Designs published a styled shoot that we participated in last month at Lonesome Valley Resort in Ashevill, North Carolina!The inspiration for the day was Rustic Mountain Romance...and I am not lying when I tell you that every detail that day was dripping with rustic charm, elegant greenery and organic elegance! Below are photos from the shoot, including my two favorites: the photos that show off our opal Hayley garter alongside Jimmy Choo's sparkle glitter "Romy" heels. (something blue? Check and check.)Below are photos from this natural, oh-so organic & GLAMOUROUS styled shoot that just made our Fri-day feel like Fri-yay. Want to see more?

Custom Garter Spotlight: La Gartier Bride Nicole Hoffman's Pink Police Officer- Inspired Wedding Garter Set
If you look up La Gartier bride Nicole Hoffman on Instagram, the first thing that it says is "Fiance." The second thing that it read is "lover of all things pink and sparkly." When I read this, I just knew that Nicole and I were going to get along. Little did I know that the garter set that would be born of our meeting would be just that: pink and sparkly. The back story: Nicole first contacted me with the hope that I could create a police-officer-inspired wedding garter for her October 2017 nuptials. (She is marrying a man who has been in the police for for the past 2 years and in the military before that. Basically, a man with bravery in excess.) However, Nicole and I both agreed that her garter shouldn't look like traditional police-inspired garters that you see on, say, Etsy or other online stores. (ie: thin blue line theme, super cheap bright blue organza, etc.) On the contrary, Nicole requested a garter that exuded feminity and utter girliness in the heart of the design, with a beautiful but understated nod to her soon-to-be-hubby's profession at the center. Below are photos of all three of Nicole's garters: one to keep, one to pass down and one to throw. Underneath each photos is a little bit of written information about each garter, so make sure to read those little babies too! (Note: please keep in mind that if you are interested in a personalized garter of your own, then we would LOVE to work with you!! Simply email email@example.com or use the contact form by clicking here.)
For Nicole's garter set, we ordered an unbelievably beautiful locket from My Beloved Collection that was engraved with her soon-to-be-hubby's badge number. Dear Nicole, the number "258" will forever remind me of you and the love you have for Sam. <insert weeping Holy Matrimoji emoji here>
"ballet slipper pink" was the name of the satin that we used on all 3 of Nicole's garters.
The bow at the center of Nicole's toss garter (which she will actually never end up tossing!) was a slightly iridescent white satin ribbon which is more or less a unicorn in the world of fine ribbons.
All of the trim that we used on the tapered ends of Nicole's garters was made using a fine iridescent "horse hair" trim, which gave her whole design a magical, almost-mermaid-like feeling to it. I'm pretty sure that if you looked up the word "playful" in the dictionary, this is the trim you would see.
I honestly can't decide which garter I like the most! As someone who truly loves all things pink and sparkly, I can honestly say that this might be the prettiest police-officer wedding garter set ever created. Nicole, I am so happy that we met! We get all the A+ star stickers for this one!
