local love: august veils

Lately, it seems everyone is getting hitched.

Therefore, it's no surprise the inquiries for custom bridal jewelry have been rolling in. (Is finding good jewelry really almost as hard as finding a good mate?)

Naturally, working with brides has piqued my interest in other aspects of wedding planning. Luckily, there are a ton of wedding photographers, make-up artists, and talented designers in Portland!

I just got off the phone with Andrea, the Owner of August Veils. Andrea has been creating veils, tiaras, and hairpieces for over ten years. She is a partner at The Bridal Loft (a co-op of kick-ass wedding planning angels, if you will) and I love her work.

I considered wearing a veil for my 2005 wedding, but fell short on time and resources. If I had to do it all over again (minus my joyful sobs throughout the entire ceremony) I would definitely go with this beauty from August Veils:

If you're working within a tight budget (who isn't?) you should definitely check out the DIY kits Andrea offers!
