Jen & Chris March 2015

When it comes to the definition of a down to earth bride, Jen was your girl. From the moment we met, she was just incredibly relaxed and really open to ideas. It took us only one appointment to sketch up her dream gown. Fast track a few months, Jen and Chris discovered they were expecting their first child! The most amazing news and I was incredibly happy for them. But naturally, there were questions about fittings and how will it affect the gown. For us, it was about having a few more fittings to accommodate for a changing body, and we really needed the bride to trust us. And Jen did exactly that. Jen never lost sight of the reason behind all of this. She embraced every second of her wedding journey, and from that we formed an incredible bond. I was fortunate enough to meet her gorgeous baby boy at every fitting. And to see these gorgeous photos of what she has described as a “Rustic Wedding Festival” really makes me incredibly emotional.

Words from Jen.

“I was so blessed to find Cathleen to make my dress and allow me to express what I wanted. She was so flexible and talented in accommodating my changing body after having my baby boy. It allowed me to be comfortable and feel beautiful on my special day. I loved catching up with Cathleen every dress fitting, I felt more like a friend than a customer. Thank you Cathleen for everything.”

Jen wore a Bespoke gown with vintage gold lace top and ivory silk skirt, styled with Patricia head comb.
