local, hand made gowns // emily riggs

Emily Riggs creates the most exquisite gowns. She imports the finest silks, tulle and lace from Italy, sewing each gown by hand. No photo does these gowns justice; to see them in real life, to touch them, is a true dream. I had the privilege of creating a few bouquets for Emily's collection shoot last winter with Corbin Gurkin and A&B Creative. Below are a few of my favorite images from the shoot, see more in the latest issue of the knot and on green wedding shoes.
