Cathy created a personalized dress that spoke for itself - complete with a Bible verse and our names sewn beautifully into the veil. The Bible verse encircled the bottom of the veil, ending with “love never fails” - Corinthians 13:8. Everyone who saw it was truly stunned. Our wedding had to be modified due to Covid, and the dress was like a special reminder that “love never fails” no matter what life throws at you (like a pandemic!).Thank you Cathy!!!
We had an intimate wedding in the midst of the Covid shut down. We moved our wedding from a winery with 170 guests to our parents backyard and 25 people, due to Covid. And yet, we had the best time. Beautiful weather, a lovely Cathy Ebrada dress, good wine, cake, lots of dancing, my pastor from high school and close family friend as officiant, and, our sweet family by our sides. My parents anniversary happened to be on the same day, and they renewed their vows later in the evening. My husband’s mom is Korean, and she made traditional Korean food and prayed over each price of meat. We felt so blessed, loved, and grateful. Though not what we originally planned, it was absolutely perfect.
Cathy made me the perfect wedding dress! I never had a “wedding dress of my dreams” since I never really thought about it...but Cathy really helped guide me through the whole process to make a dress that was 100% me and absolutely gorgeous. I felt beautiful and confident wearing it. My husband even cried during our first look when he saw me in it!! The care and dedication that Cathy has for her clients is a rarity these days and something I truly appreciated since I live outside of the US. I cannot recommend Cathy enough!
I cannot say enough about how wonderful Cathy and her team are. She created me the wedding gown of my dreams!
They modified my gown by changing the silhouette from a ballgown to a more aline shape. They altered the gown from a size 12 to a size 6/8. They removed the appliqué and beads to be able to make adjustments then re-attached the appliqué and beads back to its original look. They hemmed the gown and steam pressed it and even cleaned a portion that had a small stain due to it being a floor sample. She is even meeting me on my wedding day to zip and button me into my gown! Do not hesitate to have Cathy make you a custom gown or alter a gown. Her work is exceptional!
Cathy was so much fun to work with! She did the alterations for my dress as well as made me a custom veil and belt to match. I initially came to her with a design idea for my veil that was pretty overdone. Cathy was happy to meet my wishes but discussed with me options that met my style but were more unique. I’m so happy she was honest and that I went with her suggestions! I had a French Quarter New Orleans wedding and I feel like the design Cathy created matched that vibe perfectly (waaaaaay better than what I initially had in mind!!). She truly made a one of a kind piece. There are a ton of hidden details that make the veil romantic, like two birds flying together to represent my husband and me, and our initials and wedding date. I also wanted something “blingy” but not tacky. Cathy and her team used clear and iridescent Swarovski crystals on my veil and belt to give it that “shimmer” effect without being over the top.
I also kept losing weight before the wedding and Cathy and her team were so flexible to continuously have to take the dress in. Her seamstresses are hilarious and professional! She sometimes would bring them in so they could all collaborate. Three minds are always better than one! Cathy’s a perfectionist and if she’s not 100% sure, she pulls in her team to make sure. It really felt like the work they were doing was uniquely for ME and my style, body, and requests. I’m so grateful for their work, it was so so beautiful and better than I could’ve ever imagined—thank you!
Cathy is truly amazing! She made my dress absolutely perfect for my wedding day and became close with my family throughout the process. You can tell each appliqué, button, and alteration was done with precision. If you’re looking for a custom dress or alterations to make one the dress of your dreams, look no further!
