A Wedding Dress Story
This dress was worn by Stephanie September 2, 2017 when she married her sweetheart at Callanwolde Fine Arts Center in Atlanta, Georgia.
Her wedding dress is a Lela Rose dress that she purchased at Kelly’s Closet in Atlanta.
By Stephanie W.
My family is from Jakarta, Indonesia and my mom had a designer working on a custom dress for me for a second celebration at home. His name is Yefta Gunawan. He actually added all of the beading and sequins to the embroidery.
He custom made my veil. He also custom made the train that was attached to the dress during the ceremony. He hand embroidered the design to match that of the original dress.
Stephanie’s Wedding Dress Preservation
Stephanie’s beautiful, off white, Lela Rose wedding dress caught our eye. It was lovely, with custom removable train and veils. When we received it after her wedding, the embellished applique overlay had a moderately dirty hemline, which is quite common. The bodice had make up stains as well. The detached train had a mildly dirty hemline. Both the dress and train had loose beads. Both of her veils were in good condition.
Stephanie chose our Heritage Couture™ service, which entitles her to premium care for her gown. We gave her gown a thorough wedding dress cleaning by hand and returned it to pristine condition. We secured the loose beads as well.
Afterward we preserved it with Museum Method™ wedding dress preservation. Our Couture package includes preservation using muslin instead of tissue. The muslin will literally last forever, unlike paper tissue. It is the best wedding dress preservation material available.
