With the end of the year fast approaching, I wanted to take this opportunity to wish all of my clients, brides, friends and fans happy holidays! This past year has been filled with meeting goals, new experiences, and a lot of hard work, yet each new challenge provided me with a sense of gratification and personal fulfillment. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the growth of my line. I appreciate all the love and support from every bride to every admirer.
I am eager to see what the new year brings for Girl With a Serious Dream, and I look forward to continuing to share my passion for creating with all of you.
The holiday season is always a hectic time for shopping for
loved ones, and we all know those few girls who are impossible to shop for, so
I've put together a list of some of my favorite holiday gifts. With Christmas
only a week away, you can use this gift list as a last minute guide for ideas

bloggers favorite heels! They look amazing on, and are just absolutely
adorable! These would be perfect for a boudoir shoot paired with our lace

Surrounded by distant mountains and grassy hills,
unbelievably tall trees and a crystal clear lake, the natural beauty of the
wide, open space was the perfect backdrop for this bright and sunny
celebration. These images by Shawn Connell for Christian Oth Studio perfectly
capture the gorgeous landscape, impeccable style, and attention to detail of
the Caruso-Fenty wedding featured in Brides magazine. The weather couldn't
have been better for them, and it truly brought together this black tie affair
with their outdoor-chic style.
While getting ready, Catherine wore our Swan Queen bridal lace and silk robe, which was given to her as a gift from her mother. Dressed in
delicate Chantilly lace with a silk chiffon lining, the Swan Queen
robe set the mood for Catherine and her bridesmaids as the
moment approached to walk down the aisle and meet her groom-to-be. Her
smile shined with anticipation as she put on the Aquamarine earrings her
husband gave her, and the antique cameo brooch her grandmother gave her to
fulfill her "something old." Once dressed in her stunning Vera Wang
Hilary lace mermaid gown, she was ready to venture outside with her groom and
feel the uplifting air of endless possibility...
Featured in Brides magazine, we are so thankful for the love and support from our lovely brides, mothers of the bride, grooms, bridesmaids, editors and friends. A special Thank you to Mallory from Christian Oth Studiowho send me these gorgeous images.
