When getting back from a European vacation involves a behind-the-scenes shoot at Fox 45 Baltimore with Jill Andrews, it's one of those pinch yourself moments!

Jill is an incredibly talented, passionate and creative custom wedding dress designer based in Baltimore (and located in the most inspiring historic "castles" in Baltimore, but that's a story for another day!). Many months ago, we bonded over our Long Island upbringing and love/hate relationship of the accent. Since then I've discovered Jill's love of all things vintage (you need to see her chandelier collection!) and we both share an appreciation for brides and weddings that dare to do things differently... :)

Her pieces are all handmade using fabrics, elements and inspiration from all over the world. One of my favorite aspects of her work is the depth she works into her designs; each detail adds to the story and compliments the bride's figure in a delicate and feminine way.

Oh, the layers. Layers upon layers of precisely constructed tulle, lace, and silk. LOVE.

Jasika of Two Back Flats was the hair stylist for our gorgeous models and man, is she talented at her craft.

I had so much fun capturing so much timeless beauty with all of you! I can only hope more brides choose to have Jill design their wedding dress so that we can work together again soon! And, if you're a bride with a connection to Long Island, let me know. I'd bet we could bond over more than just our love/hate accent relationship... ;)
