VioGemini at Bridal Fair at Hilton Hotel in Fremont, CA.

Last Sunday was a quite busy day for VioGemini team.
We participated in a Bridal Fair organized by Bay Area Wedding Fairs.
It took place in Hilton hotel in Fremont.
We had so many brides interested in our products that we didn’t even have time to see the fashion show !

I want to share with you some pictures of our booth .

Newly engaged ladies really liked the idea of having all their accessories match their wedding color and theme. And they loved this cornflower blue accessories set.

This bridal bouquet was the one that the brides loved the most. So simple and so elegant, with silver and pewter beaded holder. It looks so light and airy, so when they took it in their hands they were quite surprised to find out that it is actually heavy!

White lace and wine colors. Everybody loved this garter set, made with organza ruffles, crystal embellishments and dark burgundy brooches.

Blush and peach colors are so romantic, perfect for a spring outdoors wedding. The wedding ring pillow with little love-birds on the nest was definitely a show-stopper. Bridal sash made with handmade flowers also had a lot of success!

Dusty pink or ” vieux rose” for a vintage inspired wedding.
Our future brides loved the idea that they can just show us their Pinterest board and we will design all the accessories for them and their party, isn’t this cool?
I would have loved that someone would take care of me like that when I was the bride!

Bridal gown for Georgianne

When Georgianne modeled for me at my very first fashion show in San Francisco in 2011 – I knew that some day I was going to make her her wedding dress!

VioGemini bridal gownVioGemini bridal gownVioGemini bridal gownIt was the fashion show with RAW ARTISTS in San Francisco in June 2011 at 111 Minna.

I hadn’t met any of my models and I was not able to fit the dresses on them prior to the show.

You can imagine that I was quite worried about this situation and especially about the fit of my newest dress APHRODITE…

When Georgianne walked into the make-up room I knew that she was going to rock this dress!

Just look at these pictures!

Georgianne modeled for me many times since then – always gorgeous and radiant!

And when my dear Georgy asked me to make her dream wedding dress for her I was incredibly happy to finally be able to use all my creativity and skills to make her wish come true!

Georgianne was a perfect Bride-to-be.
She talked to me about her wedding theme, her favorite colors and showed me inspirations for her bridal gown.

The wedding was going to take place at Cabo in October 2013.

And so, I designed a bridal  gown with lace overlay and mermaid shape skirt, although I was not yet sure how I was going to create the texture on the skirt.

Well, the dress in this picture is NOT her wedding dress :-) This one is the dress from that fashion show in 2011.

One very important feature of the new wedding dress is that it was going to be

TRANSFORMABLE!

Want to see the dress?
I will show you the process of making the dress in my next couple of blogs. Don’t forget to follow us!

VioGemini Bridal Boutique

Last Friday, on November 29th we officially opened the window displays of our new store in Fremont, Niles district.

We did that during the Christmas Tree Lighting Parade organized by the City of Fremont and Niles Merchants Association. The tree lighting and parade have been held annually for more than a decade and have become holiday traditions in Niles district.

It happens that our boutique is located right off Niles Boulevard, so all the participants and a lot of visitors walked by the store. Great publicity for our new Bridal Boutique!

So, in our boutique a future bride can order a unique and exclusive wedding gown designed and made especially for her, as well as all the accessories she or her bridesmaids may need.  We also do bridal gown alterations and re-designing wedding gowns.

No more boring white and ivory weddings! We offer a wide range of colors, any accessory can be matched to a wedding color theme and pallet.

Enjoy the pictures!
