Christina’s Custom Lace & Chiffon Gown

Christina and Alex were married with the picturesque backdrop of The Cliffs at Glassy. No ordinary dress could go with such an extraordinary view, so our team here at Gown Boutique of Charleston worked with Christina’s vision to create her perfect wedding dress!

GBC: What did you love most about your gown?

Christina: It’s hard to just say one thing I loved most because I genuinely loved EVERYTHING about my gown. It was literally my dream gown brought to life. From the romantic silk chiffon skirt, to the full-length delicate lace sleeves, to the buttons on the back and the silk ribbon train… it was truly perfect!


GBC: What was a memorable moment from your gown shopping experience?

Christina: I had my heart set on a very specific idea (I blame pinterest), and it took me a couple visits before I said yes to my gown.  Janet was extremely kind and patient throughout the entire process. She and the team got really creative and helped me customize multiple pieces to bring my vision to life. Liz did incredible work designing my train and pulling together all the details on my gown!


GBC: What was your favorite moment from your wedding night?

Christina: Indescribable joy is what I felt walking down the aisle in the little stone chapel on the side of the mountain to become one with my best friend and love of my life. I was nervous to have all eyes on me; I didn’t want to trip in my heels or stumble over my words. But once I locked eyes with Alex at the altar, my heart nearly burst from excitement, and nothing else mattered: we were finally together, man and wife.


GBC: What else would you like to share about planning your wedding?

Christina: We planned our wedding while I was in medical school and he was serving in the military in Japan. We couldn’t have accomplished everything without the love, support, and hands-on help from our family and friends, and it totally helped having such awesome vendors with whom to work!

Congratulations Christina & Alex!
