Dec 2008 - A Miniature Wedding Christmas Ornament Replica

This ornament was a "thank you" gift to Meredith's bridesmaid's mother. Maureen.  She wanted to do something special for her, as she took care of her dress for one year prior to the wedding, pressed it and made sure it arrived at the Cathedral in good condition.
"Just wanted to let you know that I received the dress and I love it! Thank you so much for fitting me into your schedule. I know that Maureen is going to love it."   Meredith

Naomi - Wedding Dress Replica - July 2007

Naomi wrote and requested that I make a replica of her dress, that had been stored,  In replicating her dress, she requested that I use the material and trim from her actual gown.  With the trim being larger in proportion, the trim on the bodice could not be "exact", but provided Naomi the end result that she desired.

Naomi is to receive her replica on a dress form for her private display.  I am including pictures of the dress on the dress form, as well as a Robert Tonner - Tyler Wentworth doll, for your viewing.

10 Year Anniversary Surprise for Wyatt's Wife Valerie

In September, Wyatt contacted me, asking if I would create his wife of 10 years a replica of her wedding dress.  This was something that she had requested of him when they got married.

The dress is made of satin, trimmed in lace and appliqués cut down to create a similar look to what his wife wore.  Within all the trimming, many tiny crystal beads were hand stitched in, along with some beading on the sleeve bands creating final touches of his wife's dress.  There are snap closures for easy removal, in the event they choose to find a doll similar to what Wyatt's wife looked like on their wedding day.

The dress is displayed on a 16" fashion doll dress form, which will be used in the display box that Wyatt is having prepared for his presentation for his wife.

Final Pictures

Happy 10th Wedding Anniversary!

May your marriage continue to blossom with love and devotion.

"Brad & Janie ~ Eternity ~ May 10, 1991"

Janie, from Farmington, Utah, had her wedding dress made in replica as a memento piece, as she celebrates her anniversary. The dress is not an exact replica. Janie wanted it simpler with an embroidered appliqué that said: Brad & Janie ~~ Eternity ~~ May 10, 1991

2000 - Made Especially for Tamara

This was my first wedding dress replica, created for a gentleman that was to present it as a gift to a friend who accidentally tossed her wedding dress from her first wedding.  He knew that the dress was special to her, so he retrieved photos and provided me pictures, requesting that the replica be as close to the original as possible.  In order to complete this dress, different trims were used to present a finished replica closely resembling the original dress.  The wooden dress form was a one-of-a-kind item that my husband created specifically for this project.
