Houghton Real Bride Series: Deenie
August 28, 2015
Deenie is a fashion darling and knew before she visited Houghton that she was not going to wear a traditional wedding gown - she wanted bridal separates! She was so open to trying something different and this Chantilly lace Chloe top paired with the matching Cameron skirt was everything she was looking for. The baby blue underskirts and high-low hem added that perfect edge and we loved the way she styled it with bold metallic accessories. Deenie and her Broadway actor husband were married in Brooklyn!
Houghton Real Bride Series: Ashlee
August 7, 2015
Working with Ashlee & Evan for their wedding looks was by far one of the most fun experiences we have had working with a couple! Ashlee & Evan both have a very bohemian spirit that instantly connected with the brand ethos and Houghton designer Katharine Polk. Katharine worked closely with Ashlee to customize our classic Aligote crop top and matching Macabeau skirt to make it special and different. Both in corded lace, Ashlee's Aligote 3/4 sleeve top was covered in hand embroidered baby pearls, featured covered buttons down the back and was worn over a custom lace Madonna bralette. Her Macabeau skirt with high-low horsehair trimmed hem was also covered in hand embroidered baby pearls to match and was given extra petticoats for added volume. Her custom cathedral length silk tulle veil was hand embroidered with a matching lace trim.
For the wedding reception, Ashlee wore a custom lace bralette top with matching lace high waisted wide leg trousers and double breasted blazer to continue with the bohemian theme and vibe of the wedding. Also donned throughout the wedding weekend was the Nadja matte white sequin crop top and matching high waisted wide leg Faye trouser.
Evan also worked closely with Katharine to develop a one of a kind custom suit to wear to the reception. The end result was a super cool ivory burnout velvet jacket and matching drop crotch pants.
The happy couple now celebrates their one-year anniversary and just welcomed their first daughter! Congrats Ashlee & Evan!
Houghton Real Bride Series: Julianne
July 29, 2015
Julianne knew she wanted something for her wedding that was romantic but contemporary with a bit of an edge. After trying on many styles that she loved, we knew this Chantilly lace Chloe top with silk crepe Iman skirt was the perfect choice. We made a custom silk tulle cathedral length veil to match the dramatic train of her skirt. The happy couple was married at 501 Union in Brooklyn.
