Today we have a very talented guest, Chris Do, who is an EXTRAordinary Event Designer.  Not only is she someone I know personally, but she also happens to be my God daughter.  I actually named a tutorial after her – the {CHRISTINE} Birdcage veil:).  I have watched this young lady mature and become an adult with a keen eye for fashion and creating amazing spaces.  Because of this, I am not surprised at how beautiful the multicultural New York wedding she coordinated would turn out.  Her work made it into the Weddings In Houston Magazine Blog.  You can read more about the wedding by clicking {here}.

On top of coordinating the wedding in New York, she also created some unique accessories for the Bride Akina.  She used the {CHRISTINE} Birdcage tutorial and was also inspired by the {SERENA} Flower Fascinator.  Here are just a few questions I asked her…

Q) What inspired you to do the DIY?  CHRIS: budget was the main factor, and also something handmade gave it more of a charm. I’ve always liked being hands on and this little project gave me the chance to do that without much fear. 

Q) How long did it take you to create the Birdcage Veil and the Flower Fascinator? CHRIS: about an hour of trial and error 

Q) Who did you create it for? CHRIS:  for my client, a bride from Japan

Here are more photos of her amazing work…
