Carlson Young tied the knot on Saturday, April 29 in her hometown of Fort Worth, Texas. The star (known for MTV's Scream series and True Blood) got hitched to Foster the People's Isom Innis, in a 350-person, romantic, black-tie wedding at St. Andrews church. Carlson walked down the aisle in a custom wedding dress created by Christian Siriano. Here, she and the designer take us inside the process of creating the ornate gown, and give us a first look at her incredible bridal fashion.
"I was looking for something unique, first and foremost—a classic style with modern touches," Carlson says of her dream wedding dress. "I love a high neck, so incorporating that was a no brainer. But the way Christian placed the appliqué cap sleeve is just so beautiful. I fell in love with it when I saw how beautiful it turned out! It's exactly what I envisioned from our initial meetings when we were sketching the idea together."
"This custom gown is hand-layered tulle with beaded French lace appliqués woven throughout the skirt," Christian says. "The lace bodice is hand beaded on top of silk crepe with a cascading tulle neckline into a beaded Victorian collar. The train overlay piece is trimmed in lace a swell and gives it a classic and almost vintage quality."
"It was such a pleasure creating this custom gown for Carlson," the designer adds. "She was a dream to work with. She had such wonderful ideas and great taste. The dress has the dream-like vintage quality but finished in the most modern and elegant way."
"I love this gown's traditional details but the neckline makes it still modern and elegant for Carlson on her special day," says Christian. "It has become one of my favorite wedding gowns we have created and I can't wait to see her on the day."
