Victoria Apostolopoulos came to us to find her wedding gown. When she walked through our doors for her appointment she looked defeated and was quite upset. I remember meeting Victoria and she started to cry because she felt as if she would never be able to find the perfect gown for her wedding.
We chatted for a bit and I advised her that the trunk show we were hosting that weekend is exactly what she was describing. I also informed her that Tony Ward, the designer of the trunk show collection, was attending the trunk show, which is quite rare, and she was able to meet him. She was delighted with what she heard and was excited to start trying on bridal gowns again.
Tony Ward is a couture designer from Lebanon and is Aptly named ¨The Architect of Detail. Every gown is a piece of art.
Victoria ended up choosing a gown from the Tony Ward Couture collection. The style of her gown and veil was Gaeity. It was the second gown she tried on. Her face told the story as she started to tear up with joy. She did not want to take the gown off and when she did, just to solidify that this was her gown she could not wait to put it back on. She truly looked like royalty and there was no doubt in her mind that this is the dress she would get married in. She returned later that same day and “Said Yes to the Dress.”
Once again, thank you a million times to you and all of your wonderful staff for all you guys did for me. I will cherish these moments and memories with your bridal salon forever!!~Victoria
