There was no other way for Melissa to describe her vision for herself: she wanted a steampunk goth Victorian wedding dress. Luckily, she was working with Stephanie in our Phoenix area bridal store, and Stephanie is a super creative stylist. She helped Melissa find the perfect gown for her September 12th, 2015 wedding to Jason at a lighthouse on Cape Cod.
Melissa actually shopped for her wedding dress at Strut in March of 2014. She was looking for a ballgown or aline wedding dress in tulle or taffeta and a higher waist. She didn’t want satin, anything fitted, or a ton of lace.

Stephanie found her tulle ballgown with illusion straps, natural waist, and scattered, beaded lace appliques.
Melissa worked with a seamstress to custom add some smoky gray fabric as an accent to her gown. The seamstress also lined the rhinestone belt she ordered from Strut. We love the contrast it creates in the photo above. The darker color really accents her waist! To show off Melissa’s purple hair, she ordered our favorite bling headband! It’a amazing (and also really heavy – if you have a sensitive head, ask your Strut stylist about a lighter weight bling option)!!
Congratulations to Melissa and Jason! We love seeing your personalities shine through in your beautiful photos, so thank you for sharing!
