Carrie’s Jean Harlow Inspired Bridals

Carrie’s wedding day portraits make me so excited I could scream. Isn’t she just the most gorgeous Rock n Roll chick ever? “My entire ensemble was inspired by old Hollywood glamor and 1930’s black & white films, very Jean Harlow” Carrie told me “My hair and make-up was done by me and I kept it very straight, classic and the make-up reminiscent of the silent era. I grew up watching nothing but silent films, old horror movies and classic film noir. I wanted to appear timeless and not dated, I think I achieved my vision and surpassed even my own expectations.”

Carrie’s gorgeous ruffled dress came from “The Dresser” in downtown Fullerton and was by Pattis, the style was called “Diore”. “Originally it was $1850, but I got it on sale for a trunk show promo for 15% off. The dress was made from scratch in Italy. At the time I was shopping for the dress, I had a shaved head. The sales lady then she pulled the dress for me said “The girl with the blonde shaved head and tattoos would look perfect in this dress” the second I tried it on…I knew it was the one.” She chose a veil from www.birdcageveils.com which cost her just $59 and her shoes came from “The Dresser” too. The bracelet she wore was an heirloom of her husband’s great grandmother and was actually originally a necklace. The gorgeous brooches on the bouquets (supplied by Kari Strand at Lake Elsinore Florist) were from Macy’s and old cost about $8 each (reduced from $30!) The bridesmaids also wore dresses from Macy’s.
