Monarch Butterfly Wedding Dress… OH YEAH!

Meet Samantha and Steve, the first couple to be dressed head to toe in custom Knot Couture on their wedding day. The couple was married on November 6th, 2011 in the Plaza Theatre in Atlanta, GA. This offbeat duo knew they wanted spectacular to wear on their special day, so they sought us out to create their dream attire.

Samantha knew immediately she wanted to wear the Luly Yang monarch butterfly dress, but few can afford such a lavish gown. So, we replicated it with a few changes. Her black satin gown was hand painted with a monarch butterfly wing pattern, the skirt panels were shaped like wings, and the white spots were embellished with Swarovski crystal elements. Her birdcage veil was also a KC creation, with a flock of hand painted feathers made to look like butterflies. To order one of these beautiful veils, visit our Etsy shop. To top off the KC ensemble she also wore one of our Skull Cameo Garters.

Steve wanted a gold tuxedo, but not just ANY gold tuxedo; this WWF fan wanted the tuxedo worn by wrestler ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage when he married Miss Elizabeth in the ring in an on-air wedding at SummerSlam 1991. His entire outfit was replicated, from the feathered cowboy hat down to the painted gold diamond tights. We even took on the tricky task of recreating his crazy sunglasses! Check out some photos taken by Donny Cotten of the happy couple below on their wedding day.
