As a professional stylist, Corrie Wright Pellerin knew she wanted a special dress to wear in her wedding to Robert Joseph Stakenborghs Jr. So she turned to New Orleans designer Suzanne St. Paul to take her vision from dream board to reality.
"Being a stylist, the dress was very important to me," says Corrie, who studied fashion at the Savannah College of Art and Design and is a partner with Aimee Gowland in ALGStyle, a personal shopper and stylist company.
"I had interned with Suzanne years before while she was making my sister's wedding dress," Corrie said. "It was special to work again with someone so close to me to make the most important dress of my life."
Suzanne, who had worked for Vera Wang and Carolina Herrera, is known for her intricate and stunning couture designs, including wedding, débutante and Carnival queen gowns.
