We are so happy for wedding dresses designer Liz Fields, who got married on November 29th, 2012. The ceremony took place in Miami Beach, Florida, a wonderful destination wedding!
Liz Fields was wearing her own design. Here is what she told us about her wedding dress: “As my wedding was an outdoor, intimate gathering, I wanted to create something simple, yet elegant that would be easy to dance in all night! I opted for no train and no embellishments other than the beautiful texture of the Venice lace which gave it a vintage touch. I believe a dress should enhance your own beauty, not overshadow it!”

One thing brides hate is a bad picture in their wedding dress. So brides, one sentimental way you can guarantee to get a good picture of a wedding dress is to have it painted by a real artist!
Painting by © Joan Zylkin 2011
Hire a painter, no not that relative that can only draw stick figures, but a real artist like Joan Zylkin, The Event Painter, who can draw people and places at your wedding and wedding reception.
Painting by Live Event Artist
The New York Times recently covered live event artists in this article Captured Live, on Canvas.
You can even hang a picture of your wedding dress in your living room if it’s painted by a great artist like Laura Martindale.
Laura also painted the bridal party’s picture on these wine glasses.
Hiring a painter to paint at your event is a classic way to keep the day around you forever.
Karen Winters painted a couple in a gazebo from a distance, a scene that a photograph would make look too planned. If you can’t afford one of these artists, try going to a college art student or art teacher to paint your bridal party’s portraits (its a great thank you gift) as well portraits of your parents and other family members.

President Richard Nixon’s daughter Tricia Nixon is probably an unfamiliar name to brides today. First Lady Jackie Kennedy’s wedding dress designed by Ann Lowe is usually the style brides want to emulate.

Tricia Nixon’s wedding dress seemed to inspire many of the wedding dresses that will be in bridal boutiques in 2013. Her wedding dress featured floral embroidery and a tasteful v-shaped neckline with an a-line skirt that was lightly laced with lace flowers along the hem.
Tricia’s bridesmaid dresses were reminisce of southern bells with 70s floppy hats ruffled off-the-shoulder necklines. The wedding attended by 400 very important people was held in the White House’s rose garden.
Tricia Nixon’s dress was designed by Priscilla Kidder formerly of Priscilla of Boston according to MentalFloss.com. Luci Baines Johnson, daughter of President Lyndon B. Johnson, also wore Priscilla Kidder’s wedding dress in 1966 says VintageGown.com.

The heat of June didn’t melt her 350lbs was what Tricia Nixon’s wedding pound cake weighed. That’s almost a pound per guest! The recipe for the pound cake is available online.
