Toni was such a sweet soul, we could tell instantly once she walked in to our downtown Durham bridal salon that she had the best of hearts. She had such a classic way about her, we wanted to make sure that the gown of her dreams reflected her perfectly. One of our favorite designers, Modern Trousseau, came through and wowed not only her but her entire family!

The gown of choice, the Virginia gown, an elegant French lace gown with an A-line skirt and V-neckline (originally), looked absolutely breathtaking on Toni. The French Aloncon lace appliques are embroidered onto a tulle skirt and it just made for the classiest of gowns. Not only is Modern Trousseau one of our favorites due to their exquisiteness and beauty of lace, all of their gowns are custom made–we take about twenty measurements and Modern Trousseau creates a gown that fits perfectly on each lady.

With this in mind, we knew we could go the extra mile with the Virginia dress and really give Toni everything that she had hoped for. Instead of the deep v-neck, we collaborated with Modern Trousseau and created a strapless sweetheart neckline. These are the details that we really adore and how amazing is it that this dress was constructed for one lady only? So sweet!
