Some brides go all out with custom or designer dresses on their wedding day, but for Kathryn Boyd, it was all about a self-designed piece that had sentimental value. Boyd wed actor Josh Brolin in a romantic outdoor North Carolina ceremony, but all eyes were on the stunning lace gown she wore down the aisle. The model crafted the dress using lace from her mother's dress and enlisted the help of Christie Hudson Couture to bring her creation to life.
"A lifelong dream to design my own wedding dress, and yesterday that dream came true," Boyd wrote in an Instagram post of she and Brolin holding hands. "My design, my mother's lace, sewed together and crafted by the most brilliant Christie Hudson Couture. Thank you Chris for helping me make this dress my most favorite garment I've ever seen. You are a master." Boyd's spaghetti strap gown featured a lace overlay that transformed her "something old" into something new and utterly breathtaking.
