East-West Weddings and BridalsThursday, September 01, 2016
Ameera is not your typical Desi (i.e. South Asian) bride. Having lived in New York for almost 10 years, she wanted her wedding to represent both her Indian cultural heritage as well as her American/New York style. She wore a traditional white dress for her civil ceremony, and wanted an East-meets-West dress for the evening reception. So she approached me to design her evening dress.

Ameera was a great bride to work with. She's fun and she likes taking risks, which was evident throughout her wedding style. My favorite part was hearing how happy she was with the dress, and how she felt so beautiful.
We also created her maid-of-honor's dress - stay tuned for photos of that piece, coming soon.
