Say Yes to THIS Dress!

A few weeks ago, a friend and I were catching up over drinks and chatting about what we have going on. Of course I mentioned DIYva Designs, and all of our recent events and endeavors which inevitably brought up the subject of weddings, and so on and so forth... (such is my life). My friend mentioned that one of her friends had recently tied the knot and had helped design her own wedding dress. Of course I was intrigued and immediately needed to know more!

Turns out, the bride has a designer friend, Frank Tropiani, who is a New York based artist and helped her bring her vision into fruition. The best part of this project, is that the cape the bride wore, was made from her mother's wedding dress! I am such a sap and love the idea of adding sentiment to any event! So the dress was something new and the cape was the something old/borrowed!

Although the story is heartwarming, the sheer amazingness of this dress was what made me want to share! I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I did!
Isn't it FAB?!
