During the month of May I orchestrated a styled wedding photo shoot that I cannot wait to share with all of you! While working on this shoot, I had the extreme pleasure and privilege of working with several wedding vendors that I absolutely love. As I prepare to share the images from the styled shoot, I wanted to take some time to highlight the vendors I worked with and celebrate the beauty of their craftsmanship. This week I'm highlighting veil and hairpiece maker Kristen James of Gilded Shadows.
Kristen's work is absolutely stunning and surprisingly lightweight for how detailed and potentially heavy some of the beaded/jeweled elements she incorporates in her designs. Each of her pieces is lovely handmade to order, and the love and care she takes is evident in the finished product. The piece I used was even more beautiful in person than the photographs in her shop.
Kristen was incredibly easy to work with and I couldn't recommend her enough to brides looking for unique, lovely crafted accessories for their wedding day. Since each piece is custom made, Kristen is even willing to talk to brides about the possibilities of customizing the accessories so that they truly represent a bride's unique style. If you're looking for a special headpiece for your wedding day, you should head right over to her shop and see what you can find! There are so many possibilities!
P.S. It appears that Kristen is currently having a sale on all of her ready to ship samples. Head over to her shop to snatch one up at a great price while they are still available!
