Rachel + Dan Create History

Rachel and Dan created their own history this last May when they exchanged vows at the Chicago History Museum. Rachel stunned in a Valentini Spose gown made from their signature silk Mikado. The structure of her column gown and architecture of the peplum played well into the design and architecture of the venue. Rachel in her gorgeous, Italian-made, silk gown exuded a timeless elegance with a subtle sexy slit and pop of a flirty bow. Not many brides can encompass different styles into one look., but Rachel did it effortlessly.

“Out of all the bridal salons I visited, Dimitra’s consultants understood my vision the most, and then raised the bar with the options they pulled for me! I was looking for a dress that was timeless, had clean lines but something architecturally interesting. The designer, Valentini Spose, had a trunk show that weekend, and it was a perfect match! When I put on this dress, I knew it was made for me. The girls at Dimitra’s were so supportive and made me feel like a million bucks. Beyond saying yes to the dress, they really listened to me throughout the alteration process. Their team guided me to tailor the dress looking the most fitted possible while still being flexible and comfortable enough for me to make it through the big day!” Real Bride Rachel Perzek

Thank you, Rachel! You were a dream to work with!
