Photoshoots are always something new, and they’re a fantastic way to bring out all the local vendors! For this shoot, Southern Smoke reached out to our Bridal Studio, requesting  a gown that would align with their company’s vision.


Southern Smoke is a luxury cigar service. They offer a mobile cigar lounge perfect for a variety of events, from corporate functions to weddings. Inside the lounge, clients will find a space large enough for 16-18 guests, comfortable seating, and a 6-foot long humidor.


In keeping with the traditional, yet edgy vibe, Emily Kotarski created a custom V-neck dress with a macramé lace appliqué bodice. For the skirt, our designer chose a soft and flowing silk georgette skirt. We think the femininity of the delicate straps and skirt meshed well with the simultaneously gruff and refined idea of cigars!
