Dear Vanessa & Donna, As a customer, you left your kindness with me long after my wedding day.  Thank you for helping me…produce a beautiful story! It was a pleasure working with you!

All my best to you, Valerie

Dear Vanessa, I can’t thank you enough for making the experience of shopping for my bridal gown extraordinary! The moment I walked into your boutique, I knew I’d come to the right place.  Both you and your mom made me feel relaxed and at home.  I found the perfect gown and can’t wait for my husband to see me in it.  I look forward to working with you the next few months leading up to my wedding.

Fondly, Lisa

To Vanessa, Beth and Ellen – Thanks so much for your kind attention to our phone calls and requests! You all were delightful and helpful. Thanks for helping us find “Bridget’s Dress”. You made a happy time even sweeter. Thanks again for being so good at what you do.

Sincerely, Marybeth & Bob

Dear Vanessa & Donna, Thanks isn’t enough to express my gratitude for helping us with Lisa’s gown. It’s fabulous!


Donna, …The royal treatment is exactly what you give everyone who walks through your door.  Yours is a business that deserves all the business in the world! Your focus on attention and patience for the customer is something that seems to have been lost for many companies nowadays. So, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you working with me!

~ Melanie

Dear Donna & Vanessa, What a wonderful evening Tuesday turned out to be! I am thrilled that colleen chose her wedding gown, tiara, headpiece, veil and even earrings! Not to mention bridesmaid dresses and an idea for the young girls’ dresses.  It never would have happened without your help and expertise.  Thanks so much to both of you…It’s going to be a wonderful wedding!


Ladies, It was a pleasure shopping at your store! You made Natalie feel so special in the gorgeous prom dress.  She can’t wait to wear it to the Fremd prom with Ryan!

Thank you kindly, Marilyn & Natalie

Donna & Vanessa, I have thought of both of you so many times as I reflect on our wedding in the family. Thank you so much for all you help, taste and time for me to make this day as special as it was.  I will always remember my MOB dress experience fondly.

~ Cindy

Vanessa, Thank you so very much for all your assistance and patience with choosing my dress for the Big Day!  I just fell in love with your shop, your kindness and helpfulness, that even though living so far away, I just had to get it from you. Also, thank you for working around my schedule for my fittings – I trust your work and look forward to seeing it this summer!  Thanks again and all my best from the South!

~ Valerie

Vanessa, I just wanted to write to you and tell you thank you so much for making my wedding dress shopping such a wonderful experience. You were so helpful to me and the rest of my family even after we kept you over an hour after your shop closed!  The advice you gave on each dress was so wonderful and helpful in narrowing it down the “the one”!  Also, thanks for squeezing us all in on Saturday morning to pick out the bridesmaids’ dresses!  They are beautiful and just what I wanted. So, thank you.  Once again, you were such a great help and so much fun to work with!

~ Laura

Vanessa & staff, I just wanted to say thank you for all your help with Kelly’s prom dress.  She looked beautiful!  She even had girls she didn’t know coming up to her and commenting on how pretty her dress was.  Dress shopping for her has never been easy, but your shop made it a wonderful experience.  Thank you again and we’ll be seeing you for a homecoming dress in the fall!

~ Patty

Dear Lisa & Donna, Sara and Patrick’s wedding on Saturday was spectacular.  Her dress was absolutely elegant and the fit was perfect.  The bridesmaids and flower girls were equally beautiful.  On behalf of Sara and (our) families, we thank you all for your help with her dress and making this a fun experience as well as a memorable one. 

Sincerely, Sue

Vanessa, I just wanted to thank you for getting the wedding gown for my daughter’s wedding. She looked like a princess that day and everything was perfect! Thanks again for your help!

~ Pat

Hi Donna, It was a pleasure meeting you and your seamstress Dorina on Saturday.  I just wanted to thank you both for being so helpful to Rachel and I.  You really made the day pleasant and alleviated some of the stress in this long process of wedding planning.  For my dress, you really picked up the style I was looking for with the Jovani gown.  Thank you for your expertise and pleasant service.  Looking forward to continue working with you!

~  Jackie

Vanessa, Thank you so much for being so patient and flexible with me. I really appreciate that you went out of your way to accommodate my wedding party and me! You have made this process much less stressful and I appreciate it more than you know! I am so excited to try on the gown again when it arrives!

~ Megan

Dear Vanessa, A very belated thank you for all you did.  Every time I look at the photos I am reminded how everyone commented on the beautiful bride and bridesmaids dresses. Your kindness, courtesy and professionalism were greatly appreciated.  You are definitely a step above the rest!

Thank you, The Yearwoods

Dear Vanessa, I want to thank you so very much for all of your personal help with all of my wedding attire.  I loved every bit of my dress and accessories! I appreciate all of your time and (creative efforts). I was so craze those last few weeks and without you I would not have looked as beautiful as I did!

Thanks, Katie

Dear Kathy, Sophie and Dorina, Just wanted to say thank you for all of your help in making me and all of my bridesmaids look and feel so beautiful on my wedding day.  Jason was blown away by THE dress.  Thank you for making our special day all that much more special!

Love, Jennifer

Dear Vanessa, Dorina and the rest of my second family, I can’t thank you enough for helping me find my dream dress. It was so beautiful – as were my mom and mother-in-law.  You were such a large part of that wonderful day, and my family will never forget you.

Happy Holidays, MaryBeth

Vanessa, Thank you so much for all of your help and support.  You all made both my mother and my experience easy, fun, and memorable. I loved my dress, purse, and hair pins.  I would recommend your boutique to anyone!

Thanks again, Laurie

Dear Vanessa, I just wanted to thank you very much for helping me to find my dream dress. The Watters gown was spectacular! I wanted to thank Dorina as well, because the dress fit like a glove. Everyone we talked to, friends and family, said it was the most beautiful gown they had ever seen. Your whole team helped to make my wedding day spectacular!  Your service was simply phenomenal – thank you so much!


Vanessa, I can’t thank you and the rest of your team enough for all your hard work to help me find a wedding dress, allow me to change it up and make it just perfect. I have a feeling that I was one of your most indecisive brides, but through it all, you wore a smile on your face.  I truly appreciate all your help, support and honesty throughout the whole exhausting process. The only thing I was certain of was that I was giving you my business because of how great you were from the very beginning and we were going to find me a damn dress!  I absolutely loved it and truly appreciate all of your patience, humor, and help through all our appointments.  The dress was perfect and you guys made the experience a wonderful one which believe it or not is not common or at least was not the norm in my experience with the planning and so again, I can’t thank you enough! I will do my very best to recommend and rave about your store every chance I get.

Thank you!! Hillary

Vanessa, Thanks for helping to make the last few months both fun and memorable. Your enthusiasm, grace and professionalism makes you very special.


Dear Vanessa’s, Thank you for helping me find my dream wedding dress. I truly felt like a princess thanks to you!

I really hope to work with you both again in the future (I have lots of friends getting married J) Thanks again!


Vanessa, I just wanted to send you a note to let you know the wedding went off without a hitch. The weather was gorgeous especially for October in Iowa. I also wanted to thank you for begin so accommodating. You made planning our wedding from a distance a ton easier.

Thanks again. Netzel

Thank you! Charlie and Kristie

To the Ladies at Vanessa's, Thank you so much for all of your help… the dress arrived just in time and fit perfectly! The day was a dream!!

Kindest Regards, Briar

Vanessa, Thank you for such a lovely experience. You treated my mom and me so well. We will cherish our memories together in your shop. What a lovely place. The dress was perfect, and I felt so beautiful, not to mention comfortable!

Vanessa, I’m sorry it took me so long to get these to you. Our photographer was fabulous! Quite the ad for the dress! Thanks again for everything.


Dear Ellen and Vanessa— Being a 49 year old bride was very scary! I was afraid I’d look stupid in a wedding gown. However, as I look at my newly received pictures, the dress was perfect with the crystals. I ordered you picture (or two) so you could share in my pride over the most beautiful day of my life! Interestingly—I didn’t need any alterations at all! I simply took up the straps myself and it was perfect. Many thanks! I will refer you to all my friends who live in Chicago, but also those here! Have a great summer!

Fondly, Lynn

Dear VanessaI cannot thank you enough for the time and care you showed me as I prepared for one of the most wonderful day of my life! You have such a flair and style! It truly shows you love what you do. I would recommend any future brides I know to experience your boutique! Thanks again for all you have done for me, and especially for my Mother.

To everyone at Vanessa’s, Thank you so much for all you did for me and preparing my wedding dress. I got so many compliments on the dress. We had a wonderful day.

Thanks again, Megan

To the wonderful staff at Vanessa’s, I just wanted to say thank you for making my wedding day and the whole process up until that day such a great experience. From the bridesmaids’ dresses to the “emergency” garter I needed on that day, you all showed such great care and concern for me. I loved just walking in or calling and knowing that whoever I saw or talked to, always knew who I was and why I was there. Your customer care is outstanding and you don’t seem to find that everywhere anymore. I will definitely recommend your shop to all future brides I know! I can’t say thank you enough. I’ll miss not having to come by now that I’m married!

Sincerely, Allison

Vanessa — Thank you so much for providing me with a gorgeous, luxurious, and perfect bridal gown. Your boutique is impressive, your staff is professional, and every experience was wonderful. I feel lucky to have found you and your services and wish to share it with others. I always make it a point to refer Vanessa’s Modern Bride to any new bride, mother of the bride, or bridesmaid. I hope that the business you and your family have worked hard to create lasts for many more years to come!

Dear Vanessa, I now know what it means to feel like “a million bucks”! I received so many compliments on my Mother of the Groom dress. Thanks, too, for a perfect delivery of the bridesmaids dresses. We appreciated your suggestion of a style suitable for all body types plus a pregnant bridesmaid. Your on-site seamstress is nothing short of fabulous! I feel so lucky to have 3 more daughters so we can repeat the process with you (and your Mom, of course)

Dear Vanessa, If there is one thing I keeping thinking about form our wedding day (other than becoming husband/wife!) it is my dress! No lie! Once it returns from the cleaners my husband and I have agreed that I will wear the dress 1 night a month for dinner at home. So many people commented on how great the dress was and how “me” it was! I cannot thank you enough for helping me find “the dress!” Your flexibility and hard work in working with me and my schedule and living in CA was so appreciated you really made planning a long-distance wedding stress free! Thank you so very much again Vanessa!


Dear Vanessa, This is grossly overdue! Thank you so much for making my wedding day so beautiful. I really appreciate you letting me wear the “mother load” as my something borrowed, and giving me my wedding shoes as a very generous birthday gift. Most of all, I would like to thank you for strutting up to the alter in your ruffle dress!

Love, Laurel

Vanessa and Crew, Thank you so much for all of your exceptional assistance, love and care in helping me select the gown of my dreams!!!

You all have been amazing every step of the way and I felt absolutely beautiful in the dress!!! Our hearts with love and gratitude go out to you all for helping make our dreams come true. The day was magical!!!

Love, Jenn

Dear Vanessa, I can’t thank you enough for making me feel so beautiful on my wedding day! Everything came together so well and my lakeside wedding was a dream come true. I always knew from an early age I’d find my wedding dress at Vanessas!

Love, Nicole

Dear Vanessa, I hope you’re doing well! I haven’t forgot about sending you a picture… I just couldn’t decide which on so I’m giving you these two. I absolutely loved how my dress turned out and can’t thank you enough for being able to provide exactly what I was looking for. I will forever recommend your shop to future brides. You all provided such great service and and it was so much fun! Thanks again and take care!


Dearest Vanessa and Dorina, Thank you so much for providing me with the perfect wedding dress for a very special day! As I walked through the Vegas Casino, at least a dozen people yelled out “I love your dress!” Me too. It was perfect. Dorina did a fabulous job00 the dress fit like a glove. Vanessa, you run your business very well. Your attention and understanding of my needs proved to be a perfect experience. When my sister, Kaylyn, told me how amazing the “Vanessa’s” experience was, I had NO idea! I had an amazing experience and I’m so pleased with turn out. Thanks you.

Love, Tricia

Vanessa, I’m so sorry this thank you is so delayed but I’ve been waiting until I got our pictures so you could see how beautiful everything turned out! Thank you so much to all of you for all your help—your guidance was invaluable and we were so thrilled with how our dresses turned out! Can’t wait to marry off more friends so we can come see you and your beautiful dresses again!

Love, Jason and Kristin

Dear Vanessa, Thank you so much for helping me find my dream dress! My wedding was absolutely perfect. I had the most amazing day and got to do it all in the most amazing dress. I appreciate all your help and patience in finding not only my dress but my mom’s as well. We really enjoyed every moment spent with you and would do it all over again in a heartbeat! Hope you’re doing well,

Thanks again, Sage xoxo

Hi Vanessa! Here are some pictures from Kristin and Tim’s wedding! I also sent some of the room at the track for fun! We are all so happy with how well the entire day went—and Kristin looked beautiful! Will have to share pictures from the photographers when we get them! Talk soon!


Donna and Vanessa, I cannot thank you enough for all you did for me. The wedding dress and veil were perfect. I loved every second of wearing them. You helped me feel like a beautiful princess, thank you!! Everyone at the wedding commented on how beautiful the dress was – I only have you guys to thank for that. Brent cried when he first saw me (and throughout the day J), and he is also thankful for all your help to make our day wonderful. I truly think your Bridal Salon is the best… and I always will recommend it to bride-to-be’s. I’ve enclosed pictures… It was 40% change of rain—but the rain never came. Yah! Thank you!!


Dear Vanessa, Thank you so much for all you did for our wedding. Not only did you help me find a wonderful dress, but bridesmaid dresses as well. You made our day so special! Hope to see you soon!


Dear Vanessa and Dorina, Enclosed please find pictures of Rachel in “her DRESS” I had to share. The alterations and fit were perfect. It was truly her dream dress and you both made it happen.

Dorina- I did the bussel the best I could ( I had my directions in my purse) It took me 20 minutes. Haha. Notice the picture of Rachel getting dressed. We left the train on the hanger until we got to the church. We carried it behind her on the hanger. It worked out perfect. It did not get wrinkled or dirty getting to the church. Thank you for pinning it on the hanger so well. Everyone was amazed at how Rachel looked in that dress. You would never imagine when we bought the sample that it was 2 sizes too big for her. Dorina you did an amazing job! You took such good care of her and made it “her dress” When Rachel and Sean returned from their honeymoon they were told Sean would be transferring to Michigan. So they haven’t really had time to do a lot of things before they move. I know Rachel wanted to stop by and how you pics but no sure if she would have time so I’m sending them. Thank you all so much for your care and customer service.

Wishing you Happy Holidays and a great New Year!! Jackie

Dear Vanessa, I can’t seem to find the exact words to thank you for all of your help and “fashion guidance” throughout such an exciting time in my life. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect, smooth, and most of all enjoyable experience looking for my wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses. Everyone looked absolutely gorgeous! My mom and I loved coming in moth after month through the whole process. You guys are great! I loved my dress and the pictures turned out fabulous. It was everything I wanted. I hope every bride that comes into your shop finds the dress they want to marry!

Thank you! Jamie

Vanessa, Thank you sooo much for everything you did with the dresses. It was wonderful getting to know you and your mom. Your boutique is filled with amazing dresses with exceptional service. I wanted to include pictures to show how wonderful everyone looked. My mother and sister say “hello” too!

Thanks again, Melissa 

Vanessa, Thank you to you and your staff for making my wedding dress shopping experience memorable. It was a pleasure working with all of you. My dress was absolutely stunning, and both moms looked fabulous!

Thanks again! Rea

I wanted to thank you all again for making my wedding dress shopping experience so enjoyable (and fun!). Living out of state, I was concerned about purchasing in Chicago… but you guys were beyond accommodating! Our wedding day and my dress were absolutely perfect! Enjoy the pictures!

Thanks again, Andrea

Vanessa, Enclosed are some pictures from our wedding. I tried to choose pictures that showed all angles of my dress, my bridesmaids’ dresses, and my hairpieces. Everybody looked amazing!! Thank you for all your help, and for helping me look beautiful! Everybody loved my dress!!!! Thanks again!

Sincerely, Susie

Dear Vanessa and Donna, Thank you for all your help and support with our bridesmaid dresses. They were amazing with the flowers. All the girls loved them and were very comfortable thanks to Dorina’s alterations.

Many thanks! Lindsey

Dear Vanessa, The bridesmaid’s dresses were a perfect choice thanks to your direction and expertise. You certainly are the best for sizing up a group of gals and finding just the right thing. The girls were all so pleased with the alterations too. It all made for a very calm bride-and her mother!

Thanks, Carol

Dear Everyone at Vanessas, I just wanted to say thank you for everything you did to help make my special day perfect. From the very first step I took into the store to the day I received the dress “hand off” I felt comfortable, relaxed, and treated so wonderfully~ I always felt like I could walk into the store and settle in (even if I wasn’t shopping for me). You all treated my entire group—both friends and family like it was their special day too. Everyone’s attention to detail truly helped make my day wonderful! I received SO many compliments about my dress, shoes, and the tiara J Even Ryan liked the crown! I really am so thankful that I came to your store first. Vanessa and Lisa thank you for listening to my worries and complaints. It made every trip to Vanessas memorable. I want you to know that all our guests commented not only on my dress, but the unique bridesmaid dresses we had. Everyone thought the different straps was such a neat idea. Don’t worry, I enclosed a copy of the dress straps so you can always remember me. Again everyone, thank you so much! My experience at Vanessas was everything I dreamed of and more. Thank you!! And don’t forget I will come and work there some day J

Thank You! Thank You! Dana

Vanessa, Dorina, Dana and all in the store who were so very helpful, Thank you for all your help in making me a beautiful wedding dress for my special day! Sorry these pictures come along with such a delay—we just got our hands on them a few months ago. I can’t tell you how much I loved my wedding dress! The pictures show how great it looked and how full it was, just like I wanted it. Thanks again for all your help! We just celebrated our 1st Anniversary and I still smile every time I see my wedding dress!

Mary Dana

Dear Vanessa and all, Thank you very much for everything that you did to make my day (and dress) beautiful! I loved everything from the dress to veil and am so happy about keeping the bow! It all looked great, so thanks for your help. Here are some pictures form the day—I added a couple that showcase the ruffle and bow. J I’ll see you soon with my friend who will be searching for her dream dress.


Dear Vanessa and Staff, There aren’t enough words to thank you for creating the most gorgeous wedding dress for me. I have never felt as beautiful as I did wearing my dress, and I can’t tell you how many people commented on just how amazing it was!! It truly set the tone for the whole wedding and everyone at Vanessa’s made the experience just perfect! I only wish I could get married again so I could wear it again! So thank you, thank you… you all are the best, and I will certainly send any engaged friends your way!

Sincerely, Ayars

Dear Vanessa, How can we ever put into words the amazing experience we had with you start-to-finish? Thank you for the beautiful gown that Gwen fell in love with and for my dress. They were both admired and enjoyed by our family and friends. Many people asked where we found them and we were happy to give your name.  The memories of my daughter’s wedding day were made extra-special because of you.

Sincerely, Darlene

Vanessa, Thanks so much for making finding my wedding dress such a great experience. I got SO many compliments on the dress and you and your associates were so great to work with.

Happy New Year! Jessica

Dear Vanessa, I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my wedding dress and bridesmaid dress experience so lovely.  You, your mother & the rest of your staff could not have been kinder to me, my friends, and family.  Every time we came to your store, whether there were 2 or 12 of us, you were all so patient and wonderful to work with. We have only spoken highly of you and your store and have encouraged othe brides to visit you.

I have included our Christmas card so you can see how perfect the dress was. I really could not have asked for a better day.

Thanks again for everything! Angela

Dear Vanessa and team, I wanted to send you a huge thank you for all your help, support, and laughter getting ready for the big day! You made the process with both my dress and my mom’s dress painless and gained a lot more clients with the bridesmaids! Here is a picture of the dress…

Vanessa and staff, I can’t tell you how much I am going to miss coming in there.  I am so grateful for all the beautiful work you put into all the dresses. Mine turned out so amazing. You are all truly talented. It always made my day to know I had a fitting. Not only was it so fun to put on my dress, but talking with everyone was always so nice. I hope my sisters will choose a dress from you in the future so I have a chance to stop in once again. Thank you!

Love, Kathy

Dear Vanessa, Thank you again so much for making Michelle feel so very special. From the moment we entered your salon, we were treated with respect and importance.  Michelle was a beautiful bride, radiant and glowing in her gown. It was indeed a special day for all of us.

Thanks again to you and your staff.

Sincerely, Helen

Dear Vanessa, Thank you so much for helping me find the perfect dress! You made my wedding dress shopping experience so memorable and I really appreciated the individual attention and superior level of service you provided.  The day went off beautifully – thank you again for your part in making it so special.

Warm regards, Erica

Vanessa— My dress was absolutely fabulous! Not only was my husband at a loss for words when he saw me walk down the aisle, but everyone commented on how “unusual” my dress was, describing it as “one of a kind,” and wanted to know where I purchased it from. My maids looked awesome as well; it was the perfect color for a June wedding. It was such a pleasure working with you and your staff and the dress couldn’t have been more “fitting” for such a perfect day.

Thanks, Jen

Dear Vanessa, Thank you so much for helping me find the perfect dress for my wedding day. It was so beautiful, and I couldn’t have been happier! I really appreciate all of your help with everything. Maybe I’ll see you around the neighborhood!

Love, Hope

Vanessa and the rest of the Team…. Thank you so much for helping me find my dream wedding dress! IT was absolutely gorgeous and I received many compliments. And the necklace was the talk of the night. It completed my look! You have exceptional quality of products and service!

Thanks for everything! Mark and Meredith

Vanessa, I just wanted to send a few pictures from our wedding last August (I finally ordered pictures!!!) and say thank you for helping me find the perfect dress! I enjoyed every visit and fitting and everyone at your store was so nice and helpful. I will continue to recommend Vanessa’s to every bride I know!

Thanks Again! Jennifer

Vanessa’s, My wedding in Cancun turned out to be more perfect than I had ever dreamed! The weather was perfect, the hotel (RIU Hotel Cancun) did an amazing job. We had 40 guests and spent several days relaxing and celebrating.

My gown looked amazing, I get so many compliments when showing the photos. Not only did it look amazing, but it fit me so perfectly. The bridesmaid dresses were also perfect as was my mom’s dress. Thank for making the “dress” portion of my wedding so simple and rewarding. I recommend your business to all brides.


Dear Vanessa and Lisa, Thank you so much for helping me pick out the perfect dress for our wedding day. The bridesmaids dresses were beautiful and complimented my dress so well.

I always enjoyed coming in for my appointments. You all are so much fun!

See you soon, Colleen

Vanessa and Lisa, I cannot begin to verbalize my thanks to both of you for all the effort you put into my bridal gown. From the moment I stepped into your shop, you made me feel so special and you truly understood my personal style. From coordinating my gown with the veil my mom wore on her wedding day to fitting my dress perfectly, the whole process was a pleasure. Your help allowed me to achieve the wedding look I have been dreaming of since I was a little girl.

With deep thanks, Julie

Dear Ladies of Vanessa’s, Thank you so much for all of your help in choosing and perfecting my wedding dress! Your service and suggestions throughout the months were wonderful.

Sincerely, Sarah

To Everyone at Vanessa’s: Thank you so much for all of your help and advice with finding the perfect wedding dress. I appreciate all of the time and attention you gave me. I wish you nothing but the best with all of your future brides. I will let all my friends know about my great experience.


Vanessa and Dorina, I just wanted to thank you so much for all of the help in assisting my bridesmaids and I. The dresses were all absolutely gorgeous. I got so many compliments on my dress, especially the straps! I had 3 different people say it was the prettiest wedding dress they have ever seen! Thank you for making the entire process so easy.

To Vanessa’s— Thank you for all your help, My MOB (in law) dress was wonderful and I had many, many compliments.


Dear Vanessa! This has taken way too long, but better late than never! Thank you for making our wedding day extra special. Your guidance and help throughout the planning process is so appreciated. I always looked forward to my appointments at your shop. Our wedding day was so perfect—literally nothing went wrong (at least that I noticed). I still love my dress and wish I could wear it again. It’s handing in my closet and I’ve now idea what to do with it! I always recommend your shop to engaged gals because you’re the best! Good luck to you and the rest of the Vanessa’s staff.

Love and thanks! Leigh

Donna, This thank you card is long overdue. Thank you so much for helping me find my perfect wedding dress. You made my wedding dress shopping such an amazing experience and something I will never forget. Your kindness meant a great deal to me and something that I’ll always remember.

Dear Vanessa and All— Thank you for the wonderful bridal experience! My dress and pictures are beautiful. I would recommend friends and family to Vanessa’s—It was wonderful!

Dear Vanessa, I wanted you to see how beautiful Maggie was on her wedding day. Maggie chose the dress, as you know. The veil you chose was absolutely the “frosting on the cake!” Yes, Maggie wore her (…) veil the entire reception—and then the “party after!”

Many people thought her gown “matched” our magnificent church!

Thank you for your input. Thanks for making it a fun and memorable afternoon in your salon.

Mother of the Bride, Anne
