Casablanca Custom Wedding Dress: Style 2205 + Removable Cap Sleeves
Kristina and Shawn’s gorgeous, modern country vineyard wedding is a delightful summer sight, bursting with bright-colored greens, hints of blue, and accompanied by a stunning Casablanca Custom wedding dress creation! Kristina added removable cap sleeves to Style 2205 to create her very own unique custom wedding gown (and she absolutely rocks it!). Keep reading for the story of how Kristina created her custom gown AND how these two lovebirds (Spoiler: He knew before she did!).
“My mom, grandmother and bridesmaids went to a couple places before visiting Tricia’s in Fort Blackmore. I had tried on a few dresses that I liked, but didn’t love. When I got to Tricia’s, I told Tricia what I was looking for and she helped me pick out a few dresses to try. The second dress I came out in, I loved!”
“After trying on more dresses, I kept going back to that second dress. I told Tricia it would be absolutely perfect if it had some sort of straps, because I felt naked up top. She told me to hold on, and came back and pinned on some cap sleeves.”
“I knew it was the perfect dress! She took my measurements so it would be a custom fit and ordered the cap sleeves with it. When the dress came in, I asked if we could make the cap sleeves removable so I could take them off at the reception and wear the dress strapless. Tricia made it happen!”
By adding customized removable cap sleeves, Kristina created TWO dazzling wedding looks in one! Talk about efficiency.
This bride and groom grew up together, but didn’t get to know each other until they were in their 20’s. Even so, Shawn knew right from the get-go that Kristina was the one for him, and he wasn’t shy about letting her know!
“Shawn and I grew up beside each other, literally 100 yards. I was 5 years older than him and never really knew him, but knew of him. In 2015 he started working with one of my best friend’s husbands and he kept trying to set me up with him.”
“Two years passed and it was Shawn’s birthday and Tanner and Jess were throwing him a birthday get-together… The night went on and we hit it off. He looked at me that night on May 26th and told me he was going to marry me. Not going to lie, I was a little freaked out.”
“He knows me like the back of his hand and can tell when anything is bothering me. I also love that he is so open with me. Before Shawn, I was bad for bottling up my feelings and not wanting to talk about things that bothered me. Shawn has been open with me from day one. I’ve learned from him that talking through things is better in the long run!”
