DIY No-Sew Doily Wedding Dress

No-Sew Doily Wedding Dress

Well, hello again!

The last time I wrote a blog post was in December 2013. We are still living in Nashville, where I’m in my last year of Ophthalmology residency. Major life events since that last post include: raising a mini goldendoodle puppy who is now 2 years old, deciding to pursue further specialized training in Oculoplastic surgery, and learning that we’re expecting a baby girl in May 2016.

There were so many unique, handmade projects involved in our 2012 Mammoth Lakes wedding, and I had always meant to write about them… but here we are four wedding seasons later. For now I’ll write about my wedding gown, which I dreamed up around this time of year in 2012.
