Kitty Von Lixon’s Television Debut!

A few weeks ago, Nicolette Valdespino (manager of Paris on Ponce) approached us about an opportunity to sponsor a commercial they were shooting for Atlanta & Co., a local show featuring Atlanta Businesses.  Of course we jumped with excitement at the opportunity! Paris on Ponce is, after all, a wonderland of all kinds of amazing things and they are located right in the heart of Midtown. They have everything from 18th century antiques and home decor to new designer furniture. They also have an event space called Le Maison Rouge. Kitty Von Lixon, the first of 8 new dresses in our collection, will be shown in a wedding scene in Le Maison Rouge.

We called up our amazing photographer, Tress Ritter, and asked her to take some behind-the-scenes photos of the extra’s and camera crew in action. If these photos don’t make you want to go to Paris on Ponce, then just wait until the commercial airs on channel 11 on October 20, 2011 at 11:00AM! Videographer Jason Maris follows Baudelaire (the mascot pug) as he gives you a personal tour with Christine Pullara, (the shows host) throughout this magical place! Tress also took some photos of Kitty in PoP’s vendor space, where local artisans and collectors can display and sell their work:

KC’s Custom Sizing Option Caters to Plus Sized Brides

As you already know, all of the dresses in our collection (aside from one-of-a-kind couture pieces) are made to order. But, it doesn’t stop there! All of our dresses are made to each brides specific measurements!!! We know that every woman is not a stock size 6, and some woman have issues with fitting certain parts of their bodies. We make it a point to share this information as much as possible- so when the Rock ‘n Roll Bride was asked to provide a list of plus sized wedding gown vendors, we were thrilled that she thought of Knot Couture!

On top of that, we’re so happy that KC couple Kyle and David’s wedding photo has been featured in the article! Read Kat’s post here: Wedding Fashion for Plus Sized Brides. To see more photos of Kyle in Chastity Rose, visit the Story Photographers page.

Brides on Bikes: Photos Featuring CG CycleWerks Choppers

We have had quite a productive year thus far, and we have worked with so many AMAZING photographers, models and make-up artists. Just last year, for our big bridal shootout, we were lucky enough to score ourselves some really awesome motorcycles from CG CycleWerks. The custom creations they brought us were incredible, and the models had such a great time shooting with them. We compiled all the photos we could find from that shoot, and we look forward to working with them again. A special thanks goes out to Garrett Tucker (one of our handsome male models) for hooking us up with these fantastic bikes!

What is CG Cyclewerks?
Cg Cyclewerks is the fruition of a lifelong dream and passion for motorcycles.
I remember as a child I would hang around the local motocross track and pester the racers who were feverishly working on their bikes for the next race…I would watch as they transformed broken machinery and parts into monsters of speed and power…I handed them tools and parts and when they had enough of my constant questioning ..they would point me in the direction of the nearest pit bike. I never forgot those days .

As the years went on I rode and wrenched on every bike I could afford. Along my journey I ran into many bikers and mechanics that taught me to see that problems are just opportunities. Although we work on all bikes… our specialty is vintage Triumphs , BSA, Norton and all metrics. We wrench, fabricate, weld, paint,chop,repair, track down those hard to find vintage parts. We offer local pick up and delivery as well as emergency repairs.
We can turn your stock bike into a custom café , bobber, or chopper. We can build the bike you have always dreamed of. Our main goal is to keep you riding.

Tell us about the bikes from the shoot:

The silver bike is a 1972 Honda CB 360 that came to us in non running stock condition. [You should see the before pics.] The customer wanted a vintage cafe racer and made the choices as far as paint scheme goes. We fabricated the rear seat cowl from an old discarded fender and hid the battery inside there. The seat is covered with ostrich leather. Garrett Tucker, JT, and myself did the fabrication, upholstery, paint,and repaired mechanical issues. We try to keep all work in house.

As a side note we did this transformation in trade for our website which we are very excited about and should be up and running very soon.

The black bike is a 1970 Triumph Bonnieville 650. It was built by us as a graduation present for Garrett. It started as a pile of parts and we hardtailed the frame, rebuilt the motor, used a 1979 Triumph front end and rear tire. We fabricated a battery box, tailight/license bracket, seat, chain tensioner, fender and hidden document holder. A build like this typically costs around 7 to 10 thousand depending on donor bike, custom options, etc.

Tell us more about your current projects:

Although we specialize in vintage british bikes, we repair, paint, modify, hardtail, bob , chop and cafe all bikes. We manufacture custom parts such as seatpans, battery boxes, chain tensioners, motor brackets, tailight/license brackets. Our list of custom parts is always growing. Our current build, Black Betty, is a numbers matching 1970 Triumph 650 bobber owned by Brian Pieple (another team member). We are hoping to be featured in some popular magazines when it’s finished. The paint scheme will be gloss black with gold leaf and brass accents.

Thanks
