Loren’s Something Blue is her Wedding Dress

A Wedding Dress StoryBy Loren R.  I searched for my wedding dress at major bridal salons up and down the East coast before finding the dress in Columbus, Ohio at La Jeune Mariee Bridal.  The gown I chose was the first dress I tried on and I knew immediately that it was the one. The light blue in my gown is not only my favorite color, but is also the color of my alma mater, Spelman College. The matching custom veil was made by Sara Gabriel Veils, and features a white to deep blue ombre color, adorned with ombre blue...

Family Heirloom Christening Gown Renewed

A Family Heirloom StoryBy Carol Kidney This christening gown was made by my Mom, a talented seamstress, for her first-born child in 1956. There was also a blanket that was a gift from my Aunt. The robes were worn by my sister and me. These items were carefully stored until 1977 when they were worn by my brother’s first born son and all my mom and dad’s grandchildren. They were last worn by their youngest grandchild in 1994. The family welcomed the next generation of our family in 2018. Sadly my Mom passed away in 2018...

Mother’s Wedding Dress Restoration Amazing

A Wedding Dress Story By Tracy Hulett After my mom passed we had to sell her house and found her wedding dress stuffed in a plastic bag in the original box. It smelled of ammonia.

It’s such a beautiful gown we hope that someone down...
