The garments that are shown were custom made and designed by Sara Marie, a local dress and fashion designer in the Nashville area. The flowers featured are by Belles Fleurs, Amy Lynn Larwig was the featured makeup artist, and the Necklaces were designed by Sarah Sanborn from P.U.R.E Jewelry.

Phew…Glad I referenced when I researched Couturier for my company name, because I am NOT a clothing designer!
