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!
