7 Mar

By the time you realize that you’ve swooned over this wedding for the 15th time, you’ll peek to see if anyone is looking at your monitor and look at it all over again. Oh yes, Amanda + Nick’s wedding is that AMAZING! The vibrant dahlias, sequin linens (coming in Part 2), Amanda’s two wardrobe changes (psss.. a Monique Lhuillier tulle gown & Ivy & Aster ruffled party dress). We. Are. Dying. Extraordinary bride, Amanda aka a crafting and be-dazzling goddess is also the designer and founder of Untamed Petals! To avoid withdrawals from all the pretty you’re about to see, start pinning, now!

If we had the embellishing skills that Amanda has, we’d add rhinestones to a pair of Badgley Mischka’s too!

Amanda dishes on her oh-so-dreamy wedding dress & sparkly accessories:

When I tried on “Meriah” by Monique Lhuillier for the first time I was instantly in love. From the beading on the bodice to the shredded tulle skirt, it was the perfect mix of ethereal glamour that I was looking for. The first thing Nick said to me during our first look was, “This dress was made for you” – something every bride dreams of hearing from their groom. Of course next, for me, were the accessories. I designed two different hair fascinators for myself along with my veil for the ceremony. Complimenting an already beaded dress was difficult but I was able to find rhinestone and fabric that matched my bodice and worked from there. The pieces turned out so lovely that I decided to include them in my 2012 collection. I also accessorized with a gorgeous Chanel cuff and vintage earrings that I found at Portobello Market in London.

For the bridesmaids, I knew I wanted them all to coordinate but not be matching exactly so I had all of their dresses custom-made with fabric I had sourced out in New York so they would be the perfect complimenting shades of blush and peach tones. To complete their look I made some custom sashes, cuffs and headpieces for them to choose from the morning of the wedding. It was the perfect something extra that tied the whole look together.

Having lost my mom a few months before we got engaged, it was really important for me to have small personal mementos throughout the décor so I could feel her presence and remember her throughout the day. My favorite memento was a beautiful bouquet charm my sister made me with my mother’s photo and beautiful quote, “Mom is with you every step of the way”. I can still remember looking down at it right before walking down the aisle and knowing she was watching over me.

Saying good-bye to her wedding day wasn’t sad, instead Amanda woke up the next morning feeling utterly in love and completely satisfied. Dream wedding accomplished! Part 2 will only continue to blow your mind as you peek into their reception. The hand-crafted details will instantly inspire you! See you in a bit!

  15. Love, Love, Loved the entire wedding! The attention to detail was fantastic and the setting so chic it makes me want to get married all over again. The bride must be a designer as her style can be seen everywhere in the details. The bridesmaid dresses were perfection – not the usual ditto dresses, and the handmade flower bouquets and head table background were utterly fantastic. The entire thing made me sad that I wasn’t a part of the group putting it together….. I even cried while reading about the mother charm. What a splendid wedding.

  16. I just love the charm honoring her mom….so touching.

  17. Dreamy – absolutely stunning!
