The dress was perfect on the day. Everyone commented on its uniqueness. It was wonderful to wear such a beautiful and well-made dress that I had helped to design and that was individual to me.

Helen, Custom Couture


For one time in my life, I found someone that was on my page...There was never a fear, never a stress, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Whitney, Custom Couture


Jocelyn and Carla's care of my dress right up until the day gave me peace of mind and I really felt the best that I ever had on my wedding day.

Antonia, Custom Couture


Thank you so much for the fabulous dress!

Marika, Custom Couture


She was like the fairy godmother in Cinderella -- an added petticoat here, some reimagined straps there, a perfect fitting, accessory consultations, and poof! [My dress] was one-of-a-kind and better than the original.

Julia, Specialty Alterations


Anyone looking to alter a wedding dress should go directly to Carla and enjoy her high-quality, incredibly friendly services!

Bryce, Specialty Alterations


Carla truly answered my wildest dreams! I knew that I wanted my Mom's 1980's dress to be a part of my special day, and yet I never expected something that I would wear again and again!...I would work with her again in a heartbeat.
