Sorry this took a little longer than promised…  School’s been extra crazy this week… extra extra crazy.  I’ll have a post up soon with some of our projects, but for now… 2014 Bridal!  It’s feminine and lace and white, and it’s here!  These are the initial sketches, and they come with a little surprise, keep reading to find out!

These were sketched and designed as I was reading and studying the wedding at Cana miracle, which I had so much fun writing about in the last post!  I hope the story inspires you as much as it did me!

So, as promised, here they are!  7 dresses that compose the 2014 Wedding Collection.  Yes, of course I still do custom designs tailored to fit you and your wedding and your dreams, but this is the start of seasonal collections as well.  If you see something you love, let me know!  And if you see something you almost love, let me know and I’d love to tweak it for you to get it just right!  Samples and posts about creating the collection will start to come post-Christmas…

And now for the surprise…  any orders placed now through Christmas, or any inquiries made as well before then, and the bride will receive 20% off her dress price!  And as always, 15% of my fee is donated to The Ivan Project, in an effort to help care for Russian orphans and help families trying to adopt.

Thank you so much for your support of our projects and ideas, it means the world to me!  I hope to hear from you soon, and I’d love to know how the miracle at Cana has inspired your life and love and maybe even your marriage.

xoxo,

Katherine

 

And P.S., coming soon, a new series of posts, personally addressed to you lovely brides and wives!

A Wedding at Cana

November 1st, 2013

Last weekend was Piper’s first birthday and this weekend is her party! So exciting, I can’t believe it was just over a year ago that we were holding her for the first time…  So much has happened in that year, and we’ve loved every minute of it!  And now here we go again, another baby […]

Last weekend was Piper’s first birthday and this weekend is her party! So exciting, I can’t believe it was just over a year ago that we were holding her for the first time…  So much has happened in that year, and we’ve loved every minute of it!  And now here we go again, another baby on the way and more birthdays to come!

I’ve been working on the 2014 Bridal Collection (which you’ll get to see the sketches for next week, and the actual dresses will start coming in January!) And as I’ve been working on it, I’ve been drawn to read the beginning of John over and over again, specifically the Wedding at Cana story.  It’s seemed appropriate, since I’ve been focused on all things wedding and bride anyways, that this is where my focus has been in my quiet time, so I wanted to share some of it with you.  The story is one that I grew up hearing over and over- church, Sunday school, Bible class…  and it wasn’t much more than a story with a miracle that never applied to me.  Explanations weren’t given, and the wonder of the story was never emphasized for me.  So as I was reading it over and over (and over) I decided to pull out one of my husband’s commentaries on John (a husband who’s working on his PhD in Theology means I have a pretty awesome library at my hands whenever I want it, even if I do complain about how much space it takes!)

I love that John clearly states “these [miracles] are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”  That’s such a wonderful reminder to who God is and what he can truly do!  He can turn water into wine, and by believing in him, we can have life in his name!  At the end of the wedding story John says, “By this first sign, Jesus revealed his glory.” (“the glory of the one and only who came from the Father full of grace and truth” 1:14).  That’s what this means for us/me!  That’s what I was missing all those years.  This is his glory that he’s showing us and so often we miss it!

This story is full of his glory, and little bits and pieces that point to the cross.  I love that one of the things the commentary really emphasized is that while his full glory isn’t fully seen until the cross, we can’t discount all the things that happen along the road to that point- they’re all in anticipation of what was to come.  It makes you want to sit on the edge of your seat!  If this miracle, and the next and the next aren’t revealing his full glory, then what will it look like?!  Jesus tells his mother that his time has not yet come- his time for glorification, the cross- it wasn’t there yet, but he’s looking ahead and giving us a peek.

His first miracle was at a wedding!  And it was a miracle that showed how powerful he was, John says that his disciples watched and saw his glory and then believed in him.  At a wedding!  This miracle and all the ones that followed were a roadmap to showing who Jesus was, and still is.  And it’s so comforting to read, over and over and over.

I hope you have a wonderful Saturday!  And Happy November!
