If you have followed my work at all, you undoubtedly recognize the photo below. It’s practically the definition of Julia Belle’s. It’s my Mary veil. My little shop was more of a hobby than a business before this beauty came along. Now I have been so busy that it has taken me nearly two years to tell you the story behind the veil! The lovely, and rather iconic, bride wearing the Mary veil is Leanne MARY Doolittle, my sister-in-law. When we were designing her veil we knew it had to be true to her simple and classic style. English net was the answer. The straight lines and perfect drape of this material was exactly what we needed. Once her March wedding was over, I posted these pictures of her veil and the rest is history. You all have loved this veil! So it’s about time I show you the first bride to wear it!
Her dress is a Casablanca Fall 2014. She had the sleeves shortened to 3/4 length. Here is the link to the dress if you are wanting the whole look! She bought it at Jo-Lin’s Bridal in Columbia, South Carolina.
This Daddy/Daughter dance shocked me! I know it’s hard to believe anyone can be surprised at a fun/crazy wedding dance these days, but you don’t know my father-in-law! Watch the whole thing here!
This stunning cake was from….drum roll please….SAM’S CLUB!! It was delicious and gorgeous and not $400!! Highly recommend!
Fun fact: My brother-in-law’s (the guy in black off to the left) girlfriend caught the bouquet! I will be posting their wedding shortly!
Leanne, having you as a sister-in-law and friend has been a huge blessing in my life. I love you to the moon and back! Oh and thanks for the Mary veil! 🙂
