the ballad of lalita and lambert
When Lali & Abet asked me to make their outfits for their wedding, I immediately said yes even if it coincided with another wedding that I was working on. Â Why? Not only are they good friends, but because it’s a themed wedding! They wanted a Beatles themed wedding so the groom got to wear a Sgt. Pepper inspired outfit while the bride wore a hippie-ish wedding gown. Â And of course the guests were asked to come as hippies!
This photo came with the invite. Abet, being the tech savvy artist that he is, made this picture of his family walking along Abbey Road. The bride and groom’s outfits closely resemble what they actually wore during the wedding.
Usually it’s the bride’s gown that’s harder to make, right? Not this time around. The design on the groom’s jacket was hand sewn and it was so labor intensive. But we’re all happy with how it came out! And I absolutely love the stripe at the sides of his pants.
