Custom Wedding Garter: Lindsey Hasselbring's Violet Orchid Wedding Garter

I really love it when I get a new, fresh custom garter request. This is exactly what happened when La Gartier bride Lindsey Hasselbring contacted me last month about designing a garter for her that somehow incorporated two very important elements from her wedding: one, the violet orchids in her bouquet and two, the fresh water pearls on her dress and other accessories. She didn't know exactly how she wanted to incorporate these two elements and asked me for suggestions. I set to work doing what I do best: shopping. I got very lucky when I found two extremely exquisite orchid inspired pendants with hanging amethyst gems. I immediately emailed Lindsey pictures of them. (See pics below). After waiting for the orchid inspired pendants to arrive, Lindsay and I built the body of her garter using the "Lavina" garter body style as our base. To bring in the fresh water pearl motif Lindsey requested, we decided to put one single pearl in the center of the charcoal grey bow directly above the orchid pendants. I was beside myself when I saw the garter completely finished. It is the picture of modern elegance, glamour and elegance!! Below is the is a picture of the finished product, taken right here in my studio yesterday. Thank you so much for contacting me Lindsay! This garter was a blast to design for you!!
Pearl Dupioni Silk and Ethereal Vera Wang Tulle Trim make up the body of Lindsey's garter. The embellishment consist of (from top to bottom) a double-faced satin ribbon charcoal grey bow, one single fresh water pearl, and a stunning amethyst pendant with an orchid-inspired base.

Custom Wedding Garter: Aspen Mountian Inspired Wedding Garter

Happy La Gartier from Colorado everyone! Today I am writing my blog from the cutest little coffee shop in Crested Butte, Colorado. From where I sit right now, I can see the most beautiful snow covered mountains outside the window and vast expansive blue sky that makes me certain I am from the most beautiful state in all of the lower 48 United States! While I live in Atlanta, I am originally from Colorado and let me tell you it has been too long since I have been home. This breath taking mountain scenery has inspired me to write about a wedding garter I designed long ago for a Aspen Colorado lodge-styled wedding. I can't believe I haven't blogged about it before! Originally inspired by celebrity wedding planner Lisa Vorce's Winter Wonderland wedding, this gorgeous grey wedding garter pictured below was designed to reflect everything mountainous rugged, rustic and romantic about a winter mountain wedding. Kim Kallency, the bride who custom ordered it, wanted a bow styled garter, with a grey double faced satin ribbon body and a grey wool for the bow. You see, her hubby-to-be was to be wearing a grey tux for the wedding and she wanted at least one of her accessories to match his all grey get-up. Other than these two requests from Kim, I had the freedom to create pretty much whatever I thought would match her wedding style (which I LOVED). Below is the final product that Kim wore down the aisle! I decided to put two gorgeous white-spotted feathers and three sparkling grey rhinestones in the center of the garter. I think it is the most perfect garter if you are having a lodge inspired, mountain wedding be it in the fall, summer, spring or winter!! Below are two pictures of--a front view and a side view along with some pictures from Lisa Vorce's Aspen Splendor Inspired Wedding. If you are interested in placing a custom order or purchasing a garter like this, feel free to email me at email@example.com or use the contact form. Isn't it precious?
