“A wedding gown has to be the most beautiful dress in a woman’s life, make her look and feel amazing, and capture her essence,” says designer Claire Pettibone. “So many brides want an intimate and individual feeling for their wedding, and the dress really sets the tone.” Claire Pettibone has designed wedding dresses for ceremonies in castles, forests, beaches and gardens in addition to the traditional church and hotel ballroom. Her use of specialized laces, silks and embroidered adornments is what makes her wedding gowns stand out in designer wedding dress design; she’s in a league of her own.
