21Several people have asked me about the outfits Andreas and I wore at our wedding, and while I go into detail about them in the book, I must take a minute to call-out one of the indie designers we worked with — Chaya Branley, who works under the fabulous name of DaintyCore. Chaya worked on everything that Andreas and I wore, with the exceptions of my bustier and ribbon veil.

Chaya does all sorts of awesome work, but you must check out this wedding dress she made a few years ago. I think "dress" is almost an insult — it's almost more a contraption, with all the delicious grommets and ribbons and laces and layers. When I saw the series, I was like "YOU! WOMAN! CLOTHE ME!"

The only sad part of this story? Chaya isn't actively taking clients at this point — if you're inspired by her fashions, you could try begging. Or just drooling over and over again at this gallery.
