Do you love football? Then you are going to adore this custom garter design that we recently made for La Gartier bride Erica Ellington! When Erica first contacted us, she was living in Houston, Texas with her fiance Bruce Ellington. Bruce was playing for the Texans at the time..and when Erica reached out to us, she had a request that sent chills down my spine. SHE WANTED TO SEND US ONE OF HIS NFL JERSEYS TO TRANSFORM INTO HER WEDDING GARTER.(I almost put that sentence in bold but didn't want to be dramatic.)But wait--- how exciting, right? To turn your fiance's authentic NFL jersey into her wedidng garter? I just geek out so much on things like this. Not only did the final product reflect who she was as a person, but it also was a microcosm of who he was as a person.Interested to see more of this ultra-glamourous NFL personalized garter set? Keep scrolling down!At the front of her toss garter, Erica and I decided to have a custom gold "Ellington" pendant made by a custom jeweler in Houston, Texas. While it's true that both Erica and I loved the NFL details, we actually loved this special gold pendant just as much. And do you see that little glimpse of blue? That is her wedding date embroidered onto the inside of her keepsake garter! Talk about a special, hidden detail, right?! I loved how subtle and secretive this little element of her design was.I swoon with pride when I see the backside of Erica's incredible garter set! Do you see that little NFL decal? That was cut, by me, directly from his NFL Texans jersey. It is 100% authentic.The combination of gold and pearls within Erica's personalized wedding garter set still makes me stop and stare.Just one more and I'll stop. Promise.This personalized wedding garter set was epic to say the least. It's funny....because at the time that Erica and I were making it, I love it but it wasn't until months later that I realized we had made REAL MAGIC together. Even as I write this blog, I am having a hard time keeping the photo count down. Dear Erica, if you are reading this, I want you to know that I will always think of you as one of the most supportive NFL brides we have ever worked with. Watching your journey with Bruce brings so much joy to my heart.

It's not everyday that you get a chance to cut up a real NFL jersey. Which is why I simply adored working with La Gartier bride Stephanie Ming last month! Stephanie married Levine Toilolo, who...if you love the Atlanta Falcons, is a name you are familiar with already.
Stephanie married Levine just two short weeks ago in sunny California and I am so happy to announce that she wore an incredible custom La Gartier garter on her wedding day. The back story: Stephanie gave me one of Levine's real jerseys to cut into and use within her custom garter design. Both her sparkling keepsake and toss garter are made using the jersey fabric as well as its remarkable NFL logo details. Then, to make the set even more personalized, we hung a single music symbol charm from the center of the toss garter to represent Stephanie's love of music. (Gotta love a music-worshipping Pisces!) The final product has turned out so special that I am already talking with a few potential clients about creating a similar jersey-inspired designs for them using other team jerseys! Dear Stephanie- making this for you was nothing short of amazing. As a woman with a TON of Atlanta-pride, I found making this for you heart-warming and downright ATL-patriotic. I am SO happy we pulled this off in time! I feel honored to create something that you will have for decades to come. I'm not going to lie-- I really hope you will someday have a little girl in who will inherit this NFL heirloom love magic!!! ✨❤️️🏈
