I will let my wife field this one, but I can honestly say the dress was unbelievably beautiful and my wife felt amazing in it as well. Hanna is a wonderful woman and an incredible designer and we'd recommend her to anyone looking for a handmade dress.

What a wonderful experience. I came to Hanna not knowing what I wanted or how to do it. Hanna creates a warm and friendly environment that allows you to relax, alleviating the stress involved in finding the right dress. She was able to help me define the style of my wedding dress when I didnt even know where to begin. By simply asking me a few questions about the wedding plans, such as location, theme and budget, she was able to help me narrow down what it was that I needed in a wedding dress. I was really impressed with how much she knows about design, and was fascinated by her new reversible gown from a collection she dubbed the Double Dare. Believe it or not, but here is a wedding dress that you actually CAN wear again. Each dress in the collection is a simple, yet elegant design lined in a contrasting silk which can be worn inside out after the wedding. What a brilliant idea! Not only did I get the perfect dress made to measure, but in essence I got TWO dresses for the price of one!
So if youre getting married, and youre looking for something outside the square DO give Hanna a call, you wont regret it!

Difficult Fit, Backyard Wedding
I was having a very difficult time finding the right dress. Nothing off the rack suited my hour glass figure, and I was beginning to think Id never find the perfect gown. I also didnt want something too over the top as I was planning to have an intimate wedding at home. Finding Hanna was a godsend. Not only was she able to make me a dress that fit perfectly, but it was suitably styled for the type of wedding I had in mind. After the initial consultation, Hanna built up a mannequin to my measurements so that I wouldnt have to come back for countless fittings. It was so convenient. It was such a pleasant experience, and I really couldnt ask for a better dress.
