"I truly can't say enough good things about my entire experience working with James. I was a bride that needed to narrow in on a choice for my wedding day after being to various salons and working with various people in search of finding what felt right for me. It just so happens that upon meeting James, there was an instant connection and understanding that he was able to immediately explore with me and although I was unsure at first (because after all of the different options I had already tried, could it really just be 'that' easy?), he helped me realize — without any unnecessary pressure, I may add — just what we could do to CREATE a dream gown by taking different parts of different Rita Viernis dresses and combining them so that I could have all of the important aspects I was looking for in both fashion and function on my wedding day. James is a true professional with a distinct eye for detail and understands how emotional and important such a big day can bring any bride when it comes to finding the right dress and I truly couldn't recommend his talents, his honed experience, and his playful + honest approach more."
"I truly can not rave more about my experience working with James and the road to finding the most beautiful wedding dress. I have dreamed about my wedding since I was a young girl and knew that the dress was really important to me…but I am not the most decisive bride and it was not easy to find.
However, as soon as I met James, I felt instantly at ease and knew I was in the best hands. I was initially between two dresses by the same designer and James helped me to envision all the ways I might alter either dress to make it fit my wedding vision. He has a unique eye for style and was unfazed by my questions and made what seemed like the most daunting decision a really fun and easy one. He is extremely talented and really knows what works for both your figure and wedding vibe.
After helping me to select the most perfect dress and calming all of my wedding angst, he even offered to come with me to my first fitting a few months later. My mom whom I was extremely close with passed away 5 years prior and every step leading up the wedding was especially bittersweet without her. I knew that being at my first fitting amongst other brides with their mother’s would be hard and so when he offered to be there I took him up on it and sent him an email a few months later. Not only did he actually remember me despite all the brides he worked with, but made me feel like it was his honor to be there. He helped me to pick the most beautiful and affordable veil to match my dress as well as fill a void I did not think humanly possible.
I am so thankful for my experience working with James and could not recommend him more to all brides. He is a lovely human being and having him at this most vulnerable experience - it felt like having a new best friend at your side."
"Working with James to find my wedding dress was a dream come true. We clicked the second we met - I knew he would find me "the one". I wanted classic, elegant, with a bit of contemporary edge and wow did he deliver! His knowledge of styles, fits, and fabrics is unparalleled. His demeanor takes away all the jitters, lets your guard down, and you can trust him right away. I have never felt more beautiful and that is all thanks to James. Run, dont walk, to book your appointment with James. It will be the best and easiest decision of planning your wedding."
