One of a kind dress from a one of a kind designer
Kate does an amazing job of reviewing pictures of dresses with clients and pulling out the details from each image that the bride enjoys. She truly listens to the client. From the most knowledgeable bride to the bride unlearned in the language of bridal design, Kate takes the time to explain all the details down to the smallest feature. Her sketches bring to life exactly what the client has envisioned and dreamed. If you are looking for a one of a kind dress from an absolutely incredible, talented and kind designer, Kate is who you should choose.Sent on 04/21/2019

If you want the wedding dress of a lifetime, one that the minute you put on will make you look and feel like a queen, purchase an Elaya Vaughn dress. I state this without exaggeration. Kate's gowns are not only exquisite but high fashion, made by hand out of sumptuous fabrics. She, herself, is so easy to work with that the experience of buying and fitting your wedding dress will be one of the best parts of your wedding planning.
