A few months ago I came across J.Noelle Design on Instagram and fell in love with Jessica’s wedding gown designs. This Bridal Editorial was born out of that interest in small boutique custom wedding gowns. So I messaged Jessica and asked if I could rent a few of her dresses to model and photograph. And these dresses did not disappoint they are absolutely stunning! As an Asheville Wedding Photographer, I fell in love with Jessica’s mission to make every bride feel special and comfortable.
With strong love for fashion and design, especially wedding fashion, Jessica’s road to creating her own line has been a long one. It started while working at a bridal boutique when she was 18 years old. She there learned basic dress construction, about fabric and bridal trends. While working in the industry she began observing the gap in the bridal market. Dresses were either cheap and outdated or they were expensive and required extensive alterations to meet bridal standards.
It was devastating for Jessica to watch girls come in with the perfect dress in mind, only to find that her dream dress was unattainable. Years later, after having worked as an assistant to a local fashion designer, she knew she had the ability to help fill in the gap herself. Since that time, Jessica has started sketching out designs, creating custom patterns, hand-selecting materials at the LA Garment District in California, and sewing new gems.
Jessica’s belief is that every bride deserves a unique dress on her wedding day. With a bride’s wedding being one of the most important events of her life, her gown should reflect that. Jessica’s dream is that she can offer brides the ability to create a unique dress that perfectly complements her character and inward beauty.
Jessica debuted her first full bridal line a few weeks ago at New York Fashion Week, an incredible experience that fulfilled one of her wildest dreams! A special time as she celebrated J. Noelle Design’s 3rd birthday that same week! Her new line, Haute Chaton, is a collection of bridal gowns and separates that offer unique silhouettes and textures that are whimsical and uniquely feminine.
Below the first bridal look is a chiffon delicacy of bridal separates. A lace top embellished with 3D chiffon flowers, pearls, and embroidered vine pattern. This lace was selected because of its texture and visual appeal. Paired with a simple a-line chiffon skirt that has lots of movement and a chapel train.
The second dress is a delicate, ivory Chantilly lace. It is lined with a nude slip dress to emphasize the intricate pattern of the lace. The dress is a sheath fit with flutter sleeves, a slight gather at the waist, and a sweep train. My vision with this design was to create an effortless and weightless, a piece that is comfortable, delicate and feminine at the same time. Paired with a delicate tulle cape with Guipure lace detailing over the back and shoulders.
