Juniper & Michael

"I loved wearing the dress and got a lot of compliments on how beautiful it was." - Juniper.

It is always a pleasure when our brides' share their wedding day photos and offer their kind words of praise!

This playful love story of Juniper & Michael is our first "Real Clever Bride" feature.

Juniper and Michael posed for this alternative post-wedding shoot with talented photographer Kelty of Steep Street Photography.  The images were taken in various Bay Area locations including the couple's own backyard.

Kelty writes in her blog, "I don't think I've ever seen two newlyweds more in love than Michael and Juniper...I learned that Juniper is a civil rights lawyer, Michael is a teacher, and that he proposed on the top of a hill in Muir Woods using an alphabet board he had taped inside his cute!"

In keeping with her playful and clever personality, Juniper wears our charming Genevieve gown, an architectural silhouette made up of layered silk organza.  Juniper radiates a sense of style that is fresh and inspirational.

Indeed, Juniper is an inspiration.  We're big fans of her civil rights efforts in challenging Prop 8 in the California Supreme Court!  We're hoping that the current repeal will vote LOVE, not hate.  For more news on repealing prop 8, visit

Thank you, Juniper, for allowing us this window into your world!

All our love,
