Peter Asbill Walked Arm in Arm With His Bride
Designing your own wedding dress is no easy feat, but Lizzie Fortunato and her friends crafted a one-of-a-kind gown. Lizzie, who cofounded her namesake accessories line, married Peter Asbill at The Dutchess, a charming countryside spot in upstate New York. The bride said her "I dos" in a hand-embroidered dress with a billowy hemline.
"It was [a] bullion-stitched triangle pattern in metallic pink, gold and blue," said Lizzie to Vogue. "I wanted a distinct waistline, and I planned for the embroidery to be done only on the bodice."
Lizzie's friend Hui Zhang then went the extra step to hand-sew the extra squares of embroidery to the bride's skirt so the pattern continued down her dress and faded away. For finishing touches, Lizzie wore Sophia Webster shoes and a pair of 18k gold and moonstone geometric column earrings that matched the pattern on her dress. The bride carried a delicate bouquet of calla lilies down the aisle and suffice it to say, looked one in a million. Read on to see some snaps from Lizzie's wedding, including her special dress.
