I searched high and low for the wedding veil in my imagination but couldn't find it anywhere. Luckily, I had the good fortune to cross paths with the incredibly talented, Los Angeles based artist Sonia Boyajian. We've had so much fun collaborating these past few months on our 1920s-inspired silk tulle cathedral veil. Below are some of the embellishments we entertained during our last meeting.
My favorite piece of wisdom from Sonia? Everything is in a constant state of motion. Life is not fixed. Art is not fixed. This veil is not fixed. It will move when I move and shift when the breeze blows, and therein lies its beauty. When it comes to weddings, there is much talk of perfection. In life's most heightened situations, it seems, we're tempted to curate experiences, to immortalize transient moments. As an alternative, what if we bask in impermanence? Enjoy the free fall, knowing all the while that this constant state of motion is the whole point. There's no such thing as a perfect veil. A perfect wedding. A perfect bride. There is only that which is true to you and that which you've organically co-created in the moment. Perfect imperfection -- a thing that is truly alive. And what could be sweeter than that?
