I was at Yoshi and Yakubu's wedding today, and not to toot my own horn, I have to say the colors were quite mesmerizing and exciting. I could hear comments from "oooh, aahh," to " wow, they look like sunflowers," "the color is so vibrant and different," " this is really pretty!" All comments were positive and I am happy that Yoshi was thrilled with her dresses from The Windflower Collection. To make a festive event even more exciting, the photographer and the limo driver were hilarious and we hit it off instantly. A gorgeous bride, dazzling bridesmaids, and sheer happiness= gratitude and satisfaction. Pics coming very very soon! Can't wait.

Nothing shouts spring time like vibrant colors and sunshine! On May 1, 2009, yellow will be all over the place. My client has chosen a very bright and inviting shade of yellow/saffron for her wedding colors and I am happy that The Windflower Collection was able to add sunshine to her special day. When Yama, the bride, contacted me to provide her dresses I was very excited by the choice in style- a sleek, fresh look for her bridesmaids. I spoke with all three bridesmaids and they all loved the style so much; however, their color choice wasn't quite clear. When they finally chose yellow and latte, I felt very inspired. This color combination is not the typical, and as you know, The Windflower Collection is not the typical. I envisioned it mixed with shades of orange and green to create a fresh burst of spring. Yama's wedding is sure to be a very memorable event and I plan to keep my readers updated with bold and beautiful pics. Stay tuned..........

In this business, one MUST be able to keep up with everything! For me, when I say everything I am referring to my client's requests, verbal and sometimes non-verbal. Dressing a bride and her bridesmaids is a major task that I welcome anytime because as we all know, everyone is looking for the WOW factor when she walks in! Her "ladies in waiting" set the tone and the bride is the feature event. To keep up with trends, styles, colors, etc. is of utmost importance and it is my hope that The Windflower Collection continues to satisfy every bride that gives us the the opportunity to dress her for the most important day!
