Wedding Couture: Nick Verreos and his sister Rita Verreos--Rita weraing a NIKOLAKI by Nick Verreos/David Paul custom NIKOLAKI silk crepe and paillette sequined gown

This past Saturday was a very special occasion: my sister Rita, got married. She married actor/writer/producer Carl Mergenthaler. Carl is originally from Mexico City, Mexico and knows how to cook REALLY well (LOVE his Scallop Salad!) and also knows how to make a DELICIOUS Dirty Martini (Hello!)...

My partner David and I headed to a beautiful Ranch in Topanga Canyon--about an hour away from where we live in LA--the site of their wedding.

My Sister's Wedding NIKOLAKI Gown:
Wedding Fab: David and I decided to make my sister Rita a very special gown for her second wedding--one that wouldn't be too "Wedding Gown"-like and at the same time, still have that "Wedding Gown" effect. I asked my sister for her measurements and without a single fitting, we made her this gown above. The gown features a hand-sewn sequin paillette  over silk chiffon top section, hand-molded--attached to an off-white silk crepe column floor-length skirt with side slit and train. The style also featured an open back--something my sister asked for.  It was based on a combination of these two NIKOLAKI Collection dresses:

NIKOLAKI: Sequined mini cocktail dress (left) and silk crepe-back satin gown with cowl drape back

The dress took about 100 hours of labor (sewing, pattern, draping) to make and it looked AMAZING on her!

Flower Girls: My beautiful niece Casia--and Gwen--Wendie's niece--were the flower girls. Oh, and I was a "Bridesmaid". But back to my niece: she wore my NV Nick Verreos "Bianca"  printed tie-neck shirt dress with in-seam pockets:
