Wedding Dress Story
By Jennifer F.
“Chris and I got married on November 24, 2018 at the General Sutter Inn in Lititz, PA. The General Sutter Inn is just beautiful and a super cool historic site.
It fit wonderfully with the vintage style of the dress and accessories. Our day was just perfect.
The only slightly negative thing was it was cold and raining. But it did make for some beautiful photos! The rain also explains the stained hemline as we did our first look photos and bridal party photos outside in downtown Lititz.
[My dress] is Maggie Sottero and the style is Kyra. It was purchased at Cocoa Couture in Hershey, PA.
I knew it was the one as soon as I put it on. My mom says we both had goosebumps! I love the vintage look and amazing back.
The dress was a perfect fit and only needed to be hemmed. I opted for a French bustle. (Special thanks to my mom & matron of honor for helping to tie all the ribbons!)
The description from the designer website states: vintage-inspired beading and Swarovski crystals add unique glamour to this soft fit-and-flare wedding dress, featuring a plunging V-neckline, sheer straps, and illusion keyhole back. Lined with Inessa Jersey for a luxe fit.”

Jennifer’s Wedding Dress Cleaning and Preservation
We can’t get over Jennifer’s lovely vintage gown and all of her wedding day details. A picture-perfect gown that will now last for a lifetime!
The overcast and rainy day made for stunning pictures, but left it’s mark on Jennifer’s dress. Jennifer’s dress hemline and train were severely stained and the dress needed minor repairs to the beading.
Jennifer selected the Heritage Essentials™ Slim Style Wedding Gown Cleaning and Preservation with the Museum Method™ which will keep her gown in the best possible condition. She can now admire her gown anytime with this preservation method.
