“It was the legacy of love and marriage, manifested in a gown”
– Amy Demos
Jordan Demos and his sweet wife Amy reached out to me to design a custom heirloom gown for their destination vow renewal, planned to take place in a lavender field just outside of Aix-en-Provence in France. When they were married seven years before, they never had a traditional wedding portrait taken of the two of them to their dismay, and as they approached their seventh anniversary, they began to dream of a vow renewal in France, with the traditional bridal portrait they never got, to frame in their hallway next to their parents and grandparents portraits.
“We wanted to pay homage to that legacy of love that was fought for, struggled through and handed to us. To honor the harvest we got to reap.”
Jordan and Amy have a beautiful legacy of marriage that the generations before them have created, and Amy was dreaming of a gown that would pay tribute to the stunning gowns her mother and grandmothers had worn. She wanted lace sleeves, and a skirt that would twirl, and after a couple rounds of design ideas and sketches, we settled on a design for the gown of her dreams (and mine!)
Amy & Jordan live in Scottsdale, AZ, and they weren’t able to travel to the NYC studio during the design timeframe, and so we did everything for her custom vow renewal gown via long distance! We met on Skype for fittings, and I sent gown samples back and forth to her throughout the process. Their beautiful intimate destination vow renewal was captured by Katelyn James, and officiated in the middle of a secluded lavender field by Michael, Katelyn’s husband!
