"When my Mom first brought up the idea of getting my dress made, I thought she was crazy! After meeting you and seeing your work, I couldn't imagine going through the process any other way. 
Thank you for making a dress perfect for me! I have never received so many compliments on an article of clothing. I cannot thank you enough!"

wed in Guelph, Ontario

Dear Lesley,
I consider stumbling upon your beautiful studio in the middle of a rural landscape

a stroke of luck.

After trying on several other dresses that just didn't feel right,

I knew that I needed to find something extra special.

What could be more special than a dress made especially for me?!

Thank you so much for making my dress everything I hoped it would be!

It was perfect! Thank you, also, for a memorable experience.

My family and friends enjoyed the exciting process as much as I did.

You are a truly talented professional and designer. 
All the best!
Lisa Mirotta-Stronks

I just wanted to say a big thank you

for making me such a stunning wedding gown. 

It was definitely a big hit, everyone loved it.

My wedding day was flawless and you had a big part in that.

I cannot thank you enough. 
I also wanted to let you know that Niagara Weddings magazine is going to do a little article on my wedding, it will come out in September I think.  They asked about the dress so I told them you made it, hope that's ok.

Hi Lesley,
Yesterday was magic...that's what everyone’s been saying and it's true. I felt beautiful in my dress...everyone loved it. When Brock saw me for the first time I cried - I'll never forget the expression on his face. Thank you for creating my dream dress. We got married in the rain and spent lots of time outdoors doing pictures. It got really dirty but it was worth it. We will cherish yesterday always - thank you :)
