Where I do I begin? From the moment I met Lara I felt an immediate connection. Her personality and spunk was infectious and made me so excited about my custom gown. I loved how I could easily bounce ideas off her and how she could take my ideas and embellish upon them. My decision to commit to working with her was largely due to her dedication to me and my vision. Her understanding of movement and the woman’s body is unparalleled. Her creativity is unmatched. It was awe-inspiring to see her build something out of nothing, taking ideas and making them real. The whole process was surreal. Working with her was a pleasure. She made my dreams come true. She was like my very own fairy godmother. She is passionate, talented, and overall just a great human being. I had the BEST experience witnessing her create true art. I thank her with every bit of my heart for taking my dream and making it reality!

Lara, is absolutely amazing. It was honestly a blessing to find her! I was having such a difficult time finding the dress of the my dreams. I knew exactly what I wanted but no dress seemed to fit.

To me I thought I was just going to crazy and was almost defeated, until I met Lara. She made my dream and vision come to life without hesitation. She took my basic, simple explanation and turned it into a straight masterpiece.

Not only is she incredibly talented but, she is such a loving, caring person who truly makes you feel so comfortable. The process of being able to work with her, going to fittings and watching your dress come to life was something I will cherish forever!!

I highly recommend Lara, to any bride who may be hesitant on wanting to try dresses on because they arent happy with their bodies, brides who just cant seem to find the one, or brides who want something extremely memorable to enhance their wedding dress journey!!

Lara, you are amazing! Thank you !!

I reached out to Lara a month before my wedding for a custom made maternity wedding dress. I tried to find dresses online but had no success. I was so upset and felt that finding a dress that I felt beautiful in would be impossible given the fact that I was going to be six months pregnant on my wedding day. Lara was beyond enthusiastic, positive and compassionate towards my situation and rapidly changing body. She was such a pleasure to work with. My dress is beyond perfect. I felt beautiful on my wedding day and received so many compliments on it. I would love to work with Lara again and I would highly recommend her services.

There aren’t enough words to describe how amazing this woman is. I went to DOZENS of places to try on dresses. I knew what I wanted but I couldn’t find it anywhere. I finally did a google search to see what else was out there and I came across Lara. I gave her a call and knew right away that she was what I needed. She was comforting (which I so needed at that point), enthusiastic, and so incredibly kind. You could tell right away that she is the type of person who genuinely loves what she does. She asked me what my budget was and we talked about my options. She asked me to send her photos of what I liked and didn’t like and then she created a vision board for me, which even included her own sketches (so amazing). Each appointment I had with her my dress was put together a bit more and I was amazed each time - let me also mention... she was VERY pregnant while doing all of this. Talk about dedication - NOTHING could stop her. She even altered a bridesmaid dress for me THREE WEEKS after her baby was born. I mean - she’s amazing. As my wedding date got closer we had more fittings and with each fitting I was floored as to how it all came together. Her vision is truly impeccable. The day of my wedding she came to my parents house, steamed my dress, helped put me in my dress and hung around to make sure it was all perfect. When I got to the church she met us there to make sure before I walked down the aisle my dress was flawless and she also did a quick once over with the steamer. You literally will not find a more dedicated woman. She was such a pleasure to work with. I not only found someone to make my wedding dream dress but I found a friend. She checks up on me (still to this day), she’s always positive, and she’s so caring. I’m so thankful for finding her. If there’s even a question of whether to work with her don’t even think about it - just do it. You will NOT regret it!
