Tina and her partner Jerry had a small, intimate mountaintop wedding in Sedona. The bride bought her dress from a longtime Offbeat Bride vendor, Wai-Ching Studios.
As Tina said, “I was so lucky to come across Wai-Ching Studios while I was shopping for non-traditional dresses. I fell in love with an ombré pink dress that I knew would look incredible among the red rocks in Arizona where we were planning to say our vows!”
And, I mean… she was right. Look at the way that sunlight shone through that ombre silk. WOWZA!

To celebrate her third anniversary, Tina asked Wai-Ching Studios if her wedding dress could be converted to have a high-low hem for their first anniversary… and then asked if the excess fabric could be used to create coronavirus face masks for the whole family!
As Chrissy Wai-Ching told me, “The bride’s request felt like destiny — somehow there was exactly the right amount of excess silk for her whole family!”

Chrissy told me, “I would just add that the silk has actually been amazing for masks. It blocks a surprising amount of particles (although I’m not making any medical claims!) and is extremely breathable. The silk makes for a beautiful mask you tolerate wearing for hours. I’ve made well over 500 masks at this point!” She's selling them on Etsy.
