Words cannot describe my rollercoaster of emotions these last few weeks. I am a nurse working in the middle of a pandemic and a bride who had to postpone her wedding until 2021 due to Covid-19. That was of course until I found out we were the lucky winners WHO WON a Micro-wedding. Ellie was part of the beyond perfect team that put this micro wedding together and the designer of my dress. She designed the dress I never knew I wanted and I absolutely loved everything about it! Her dresses are so beautifully and thoughtfully designed, I HIGHLY recommend Ellie DaySent on 07/23/2020

What an amazing experience!
From start to finish the process with Ellie to create my custom reception gown was perfection! From the first meeting I knew that "she was the one." We had real and honest conversations about what would accurately reflect my personality and my relationship with Dan. She was able to capture "us" and everyone stated that they could not have picked a more "perfect" gown.
The idea that I had at the beginning was not the final outcome -it was FAR better!
She is creative, engaging and vibrant.
She was able to capture everything I wanted in a dress and more.
We celebrated our marriage on 11.30.19 and people are still reaching out to me, not only about the evening, but how amazing my gown was and how happy and comfortable I was wearing it.
There would never be a reservation to contact Ellie again or refer her to anyone!
Simply. The. Best.Sent on 12/19/2019

Hello! I'm Ellie and I created this bridal collection to help modern women look and feel like their truest selves. A wedding can be anything...yet the white wedding world doesn't fit all sizes types and styles. I love trends, and color, and pattern and Ellie Day can incorporate all of the above into the coolest pantsuit, ballgown, custom look you can imagine.
I've been working with clients for over ten years making custom wedding, reception and other event looks. I run my studio out of my house with 3 energetic children running around....and WAY before this, I worked for Betsey Johnson in NYC and other small designers in LA.
