I’ll start by saying I had a two-inch thick binder of dresses that I liked but didn’t know where to start. However, I knew Eve was my dress when I saw my local bridal shop post about the trunk show. The model in the reel looked stunning and seeing the dress in blue, that’s when I knew she was my dress.  Once I put it on, I got all the feelings and butterflies. I knew I wanted a dress with a sleeve as well, so I created my own sleeves with similar appliqués to give Eve a whimsical look and she turned out to be the most incredible dress I could’ve dreamed of. I’ve done the pageant circuit, but I’ve never felt more beautiful in my life than when I was wearing Eve in all her blue glory. Two years ago, I bought her during a trunk show and two years later for my wedding, she was my favorite part of it all. With her train for days and flower appliqués, the easy mixture of simple but elegant with a hint of sparkle, Eve is all anyone could hope for with that fairy-tale wedding vibe. – Kayla
