I was so happy when I was approached by Chelsea, Editor-in-Chief of Model Life Magazine.  They were doing a May 2012 Wedding issue.  She had contacted me about featuring my Etsy Shop…. www.etsy.com/shop/cestlea the digital magazine.  She had also mentioned they were having a cover photo contest.  Even though I didn’t win the cover photo contest…they picked 40 photos to show in the mag.  So on page 30 (photo Contest) and page 69…(cestlea) you will see these two photos of my gowns.

I create custom bridal gowns, headpieces and sashes for your special day.

I have to say that over the past few months I have had so many wonderful opportunities for work, photos and promotions…

The magazine was really beautiful.

First weekend in March I was blessed with the opportunity to participate in a photo shoot with 3 lovely ladies and 10 talented photographers at the Southern Mansion in Cape May, NJ.  All gowns were handmade by me and have couture construction and embellishment.  I also created the silk flower and feather bird cage veil.  This is just a small selection of the beautiful photos.  So many to choose from these talented and lovely women….all are beautiful…….

I have had so much fun today working on this fascinator.  Working on items for the Bridal Show on March 7th in Freehold, NJ.  Who knows — some lucky Bride might just win this one.  Only time will tell….
