While Houston boasts a bevy of beautiful bridal gowns, mother-of-the-bride ensembles and bridesmaid dresses for every shape, size and style, there is something to be said about designers who tailor their work exclusively to you… and even more to be said about those who who give back to the community!
MLD Limited, one of Houston’s premier custom clothing designers, does just that. For more than 25 years, designer and president Mary Denney has fashioned couture gowns for some attendees of some of the city’s most prominent events, including (you guessed it) weddings! Looking for a regal, elegant bridal gown, or a classic (but not even slightly matronly) MOB/MOG dress? MLD knows exactly how to enhance your figure and show off your style!
“The benefit of custom design is that you get a better, more personal fit,” Denney says. “We do a prototype in a muslin fabric and we fit that to your body. You’re able to select your fabrics, and your design, and even go as far as selecting the lining!”
This month, MLD will taking its impeccable personal service one step further. For every purchase made in March, MLD will donate 15 percent of the purchase price to The American Heart Association, an organization near and dear to Denney’s heart.
“I am passionate about helping the Heart Association due to the death of my grandfather, dad and my dad’s two brothers. My brother has a heart condition as well as I have high blood pressure, “Denney says. “I have learned over the years that heart disease has an impact on all our lives. So many times we miss the warning signs, especially women. I am happy to support this worthy cause.”
The philanthropic special applies to all items and designs MLD Limited offers, but only lasts for a few more days! All you have to do is say, “Go Red,” at checkout to help the studio give back. And it won’t hurt to mention that you heard about the event on the Houston Wedding Blog. Happy shopping, lovelies!
Katie and Patrick met at a mutual friend’s “The Office”-watching party while attending Oklahoma State University. A few study dates later, the pair became friends and remained close for three years through Katie’s graduation. It wasn’t until Patrick asked Katie to ring in the New Year with him in 2011 that the college buds became something more. Katie and Patrick dated long-distance for two years before Patrick proposed in a charming Kansas City bakery on a wintry December day: “It was an unforgettable moment in our lives and a very cherished memory for us both,” says the bride, who couldn’t believe her eyes when Patrick got down on one knee. On their wedding day, Katie walked down the aisle in a gorgeous Lazaro gown from Weddings by Debbie, while 200 family members and friends looked on. Lavish floral arrangements in ivory, light blue, and pale pink—inspired by the paintings of the bride’s late grandmother—and soft candlelight created an ethereal ambiance throughout the reception space. “It was an amazing, fun and romantic evening for all attending,” says Katie. “I could not have hoped for more perfect day!”
Vintage candleabras, lanterns, lace overlays, vintage vases, and a soft color palette of blush, mint, cream and lush greens are what defined Anna and George’s dreamy, vintage wedding. If you think the décor sounds to die for, wait ‘til you hear about the delish menu! The guests indulged in pistachio-crusted Redfish and New York strip au jus with horseradish cream (mmm) from Café Natalie. We hope you enjoy the beautiful photos from Anna and George’s wedding as much as we do. Thanks Kreative Angle Photography and congrats to the newlyweds!
