Pops Of Paint – Trash The Dress

Summer and Jamie Juarez are probably my very favorite clients ever.   So much so that Summer and I have continued a Facebook friendship long after the wedding day was over.  Man I wish this happened with every client – chemistry-!  Well…I was surfing my Facebook home feed and went OMG holy F’n crap look at those amazing pictures Summer and Jamie had done.  This trash the dress wasn’t your typical drizzle a couple drops here and there and call it a trash the dress.  It was all out warfare on that damn thing.  I’m pretty sure it could hold its own shape now if she let it dry standing up.  Whew!

I was not only impressed by the sheer enthusiasm they put into destroying her frock but the obvious affection they have for each other.  Great smiles and coy looks really tug on the heart strings, if ya know what I mean.

With no further ado here are the killer shots from Jamie Warren Photography!

>The Gypsy life is calling to me


I’m feeling something in the air…the gypsies are calling to me.  The urge to travel and collect shiny gaudy baubles as I go.  The bohemian trend is making way for a more in your face gypsy trend.  Patterns, large statement jewelry, bright colors and lace combine to make this an interesting time in fashion.  Can you close your eyes and feel the fire on your face while the family sings?  Maybe it is just longing for the warm summer months…hmmmmmmm.

>Absolutely amazing head pieces

>I cannot say much about Kat Swank’s Liaison shop that could even come close to doing her work justice. She is an offbeat designer of the highest couture level.

Beautiful, stunning, artistic and phenomenal are just a few of the words that come to mind when looking through her shop.

If i could do it all over again I might base my entire bridal outfit on one of her head pieces…
