One of the best parts of the wedding industry is that it is a fairly close knit circle of awesome people (if we do have to say so ourselves). Through industry events, Southern Weddings photo shoots, and good ol’ Twitter, over the years we have made a ton of friends in the wedding profession. One of these wonderful friends is Annette Thurmon of Chaviano Couture.
Not only does Annette have striking good looks (she was the model in our Watercolor shoot for V2), she is a fantastic bridal designer. Need proof? Katharine wore a stunning custom Chaviano Couture veil at her wedding and she looked simply breathtaking.
Now, we wanted to ring in 2011 in style, and what better way to start off a new year than with a gigantic giveaway?
Here’s Annette herself with the rules:
Hey Ladies!! I know many of you are getting ready to say your I do’s in 2011 and Chaviano Couture would like to help you celebrate by giving one lucky girl a custom cocktail dress for your wedding weekend.
