It was a slow transition from winter to spring in Indiana, which was exciting, because knitted gardens and crotched brambles yield the most beautiful berries in the coldest of seasons. I kept watchful eyes on our bridal berry brambles and thankfully the yarn-foxes didn't steal too many right out from under me! The crystal-thorns on the vines of these berries remind all who wear them that we continue to grow during even the snowiest of times.

The hand crochet detailing this season is inspired by a favorite childhood memory of foraging wild berries in the woods of Indiana. Every July I would spend hours crawling through brambles, getting caught on thorns, and stung by nettles — each poke and sting worth it for just an handfull of those special wild berries 🍓🫐🌿

There’s a lot of warmth in my heart today as I looked back through this last year — I’m so thankful to all of the brides, mothers, and grandmothers of the brides who trusted me with the gift to knit them something warm this year. Each stitch is an honor and I’m sincerely thankful 💛

I’m so happy it’s finally winter wedding season, my favorite of all seasons! Nature is so honest in the cold seasons. You can see the shape and souls of trees. Powerful winds intimately kiss our skin. For some of us, it is the time of the year we choose to marry our soulmate, amid dried flowers and fresh beds of snow. Each of our bridal pieces are designed with these environments in mind. They are unique warm pieces — it’s my hope — they make it a little easier to listen to the unique warmth that resides inside you too ❤️

Hello there! Thought I’d introduce myself since it’s been a while and we have a lot of new friends on here 🥰My name is Esther and I’m the designer behind each stitch that you see in our bridal sweaters and shawls.

I grew up in a rural part of Indiana surrounded by goldenrods, thistles, and chicory. I’ve always loved working with my hands and learned to knit when I was 8. There was a maple tree that I would climb and sit in for hours, thinking, daydreaming and knitting scarf after scarf. My design inspiration started there in that tree – a place where time was slow, and wind was soft.

My joy for bridal started shortly after the love of my life proposed to me, my husband Z. I spent 9 months hand-knitting my own wedding dress on the NYC Subway during my hour-long commute to midtown while working as a fashion designer. It was the hours of knitting on the N train that I started dreaming up my own line of bespoke knit bridal accessories.

And those bridal accessories have now come to life! We’re almost a month away from our one year brand anniversary and I’m so thankful for everyone who has given love and care to my story and the pieces we hand create ❤️

If you have any questions about our studio, or the process of our pieces, feel free to comment or send me a DM - I love making new friends 🥰

The new upcoming collection is inspired by a collage I made of my husband Z and I dancing at our wedding 💖 Working on our wedding together was a huge reason I wanted to start this brand and go into bridal. So this season is a continuation of our own love story. By picking up where our wedding ended, with us dancing in the starry clouds and looking forward to new adventures.

Loved getting to know local fashion designer Esther Andrews Bridal. She moved back to Fort Wayne from New York and says this is the perfect place to launch her line of winter bridal knitwear. She spends HOURS on each piece and makes sure it's something brides can hold on to for generations.
