When we set our wedding date for July 5, 2014, I knew I wanted to give my bridal party an extremely unique and special gift from me. Being a designer and having a great relationship with my manufacturer, I was able to create a small collection for the bridal party just in time for my wedding - as if I needed to add more stress to my plate! :) This capsule collection was designed to have silhouettes and prints that would not only carry my bridal party through the evening, but would be suitable for many special occasions to come! I named the collection AfterGLOW to describe how my bridal party's bags would light up their night and continue to adorn their outfits for many occasions to come, similar to how the love and happiness from that night would continue to make me "glow" long after my wedding day.
Although the AfterGLOW collection was originally designed for these special ladies, I decided to make this collection available to the public and have since added updated prints and colors. My current favorite is the Princess in Golden Jubilee! The woven detail adds the perfect summery flare, and I love that the metallic color pairs well with both gold and silver accessories.
Designing this collection is something I will always cherish, and I love being able to look at the bags in our showroom every day as a sweet reminder of the special moments I experienced on July 5th, two years ago today.

The moment my bridesmaids saw my dress for the first time! I kept it a secret during my engagement and didn't show a single photo to ANYONE! It made it a fun surprise the day of my wedding.
This is a photo of my bridesmaids wearing the bag I designed for them. The Princess in Champagne is still available to purchase HERE. Leaving the church as Mr. and Mrs Walt Ferguson.

I changed into my mother's wedding dress mid-way through the night! I had it hemmed short to be my dancing dress at the reception. This was one my something borrowed and by far one of my favorite details of the evening!

My sweet brother tackled me with a hug to end the night! I left the reception with my wedding bag you can see pictured in this photo. This was my something old and something blue as the the bag was wrapped in lace from my mother's wedding dress and lined in blue bengaline.
