A couture wedding gown is the stuff of dreams.
An exquisite, handmade dress, combined with a fabulous precious jewel, summons a feast of the senses. Additionally, the couture wedding gown is an announcement of love and commitment. Exquisite in 18k, the pendant below is one of a kind by Jemily.com . How intense are these green tourmalines and diamonds. What a perfect union!
Jude Jowilson’s design aesthetic is classic with a modern approach .
Jude’s lavish attention to detail is what distinguishes his craft. His gowns are handcrafted in the USA, an increasingly rare endeavor. The supremely talented Jude Jowilson exudes warmth and is humble about his talent.
Below this gown shines with endless hand covered buttons and a feminine bow . These details are illustrative of his lush flourishes and handicraft.
Pure artistry abounds in this shot from taken at a trunk show at Something Bleu Bridal Boutique in Oceanside, California, photo courtesy of Jude JowilsonBridal NYC.com .
See these ornamental beauties closer from my shot at Jude’s stunning studio showroom in posh Flatiron. You know how much I appreciate the talented artisan.
Regrettably, I could not attend his bridal event at Forever Amour Bridal Boutique , so I was so grateful that Jude extended a personal invitation to me and a handful of other PR and press outlets to his lovely space. What a pleasure to see the gowns up close in his chic downtown abode.
THE BRIDAL SHOW WAS APLTY NAMED ” FROM THE ACCESSIBLE TO THE SUBLIME”. I CAN PERSONALLY ATTEST TO THE SUBLIME ! And given the details, the USA Manufacturing costs and materials, Jude Jowilson Bridal NYC has a price range that is reasonable.
Confectionary soldiers ready to receive their marching down- the-aisle orders! Couture wedding gown line-up !
DIVINE LACE AND EMBELLISHMENT DAZZLE.
The chic showroom reflects Jude’s all encompassing design talent. Hospitable and warm, he welcomed us with genuine affection and treats, too!
The dress above is my favorite, although the choice is very hard. The front has a high and elegant neckline, and there is a modest but alluring opening at the sides. The back is mostly open. STUNNING!
Tied for my favorites, yes I do hedge a bit here, is this champagne gown with filigree lace detail at the back. It is adorned with the Jemily necklace. I will say the marriage, pardon the pun, of the artistry of these two designers is stellar.
Perfectly faceted, an amethyst drop from this unique earring by Jemily. You can imagine the fun I was having snapping these photos of the couture wedding gown and jewels!
Closing this post with a photo taken by the talented @fwephotgraphy. This shot captures the beauty of this exceptional wedding gown designer.
