Illustrator Ella Goodwin of Shop Miss Ella is obsessed with all things cat, and even has an entire Etsy store full of creations starring her Percy the cat illustration. The sleepy-eyed grey kitty appears on numerous things including prints and jewelry, and it was inspired, in part, by Goodwin’s own two cats, Chewbacca and Tiger.
Based on the designer’s feline fixation, it should come as no surprise that when it was time for her to walk down the aisle, she channeled her catty creativity into a custom, handmade kitty print wedding dress. The bride used Smitten Kittens fabric from Modes to create the look, and added hot pink tulle underneath as an accent. The bridal ensemble was finished off with a beautiful floral headpiece, and animal-print ballet flats that coordinated purrfectly with her hubby Gary’s cheetah suit!
Ella also wanted to include Percy as part of the wedding, so she created laser cut wooden favors of two cats embracing to hand out to guests. Congratulations to Ella and Gary on their recent nuptials, and may they look forward to many years of love, happiness, and of course, cats, as they begin their wonderful new life together!
