A Vision in Vanilla Satin

My sweet bride, Miss Ashley, was an absolute vision in creamy vanilla satin on her wedding day, this past Saturday! Oh my! Here she is in the staircase posing for our wonderful photographers, Cindi Kinney of CinZo Celebration Photography. (http://www.cinzophoto.com/).

Her wedding gown was designed and created by Miosa Bridal in downtown Sacramento. Michael did such an incredible design feat with this gown ~ and Miss Ashley was the center of attention ~ she was absolutely breathtaking.

The tale behind the gown: Miosa Bridal had sketched Ashley an image of her final gown design for her to share with her Grandmother, whom was incredibly ill at the time, and was unable to attend her bridal gown fitting. Her Grandmother gave her nod of approval and noted how truly lovely her gown was. Unfortunately, we lost her precious Grandmother soon after that ~ making this gown even more special to The Elliott Family ~ for her Grandmother did get to be a small part of it ~ and I know for a fact she was with them in spirit the entire weekend of the wedding. Ashley even held around her bouquet her Grandmother's favorite delicate embroidered handkerchief as a small memento of her close and very special relationship with her.

Warmest wishes and bonjour ~
