When I went to Imaging USA 2017 in Nashville, TN, I was excited to learn that one of my inspirations would be there. I arrived early, sat as close as I could, and diligently took notes. It was amazing to watch Thomas Dodd work, from the beginning to his final creation. After watching him work, I was excited to come home and put my knowledge to the test.
I had a Victorian style concept in the back of my mind for a couple of years. I purchased the dress from a locally owned store that sadly went out of business. I just needed the right mood and concept.
I felt Marissa had the perfect look to make my vision come to life. The perfect location was The Biltmore Hotel, located in downtown Greensboro.
