Originally made for Carolyn Cheek Palmer in 1955, Cathryn Cheek Zevenhuizen wore this dress to her wedding in 1957. On a European tour it was recommended by the two sisters’ brother that they visit a place in Italy to purchase Venetian lace to make a veil for Palmer’s impending wedding. The sisters were each given a beautiful handkerchief with the purchase. When they met with Kay to discuss the making of the wedding dress she recommended using a design from the lace as a beading motif on the front of the gown. She also suggested using the handkerchiefs around the neckline of the dress. Consequently, the has been worn again in seven other family weddings. Courtesy of Mrs. Cathryn Cheek Zevenhuizen.
