Telling your wedding story... A note from the designer
"It started with a call from one of my closest friends, asking me to design a bridal dress for her big day. I was euphoric. This was a girl I had known since I was 12 years old, a girl with whom I had shared so many special moments, joys, and tears. To take such a big part in her wedding was not only a thrill for me but simply an honor. She had roamed through thousands of bridal stores, but being a very petite size, she was not able to find anything that fit her body or style. The boutique stores, which she had visited and which specialized in custom-made bridal dresses, were virtually beyond her budget. She was desperately in need of a helping hand; she was desperately in need of an old friend.
The time that we spent together, while planning and working on the dress, was remarkable. The process was fun, comfortable, and exciting; the memories will stay with us forever. When my friend’s wedding was over, I was determined to bring this same experience to other women as well. I wanted to make the experience of finding a dress enjoyable rather than stressful. I wanted to provide every girl the chance to wearher dream wedding dress ..."
