Couture Wedding Gown Disaster saved by Katerina Bocci

Dream Wedding and Event Planners was hired to plan and coordinate a large outdoor tented wedding on July 25, 2009. The Bride and Groom live in New York, had their New York wedding and reception earlier, then flew to Michigan for their Michigan Reception. The day before their event, they took her couture bridal gown to a cleaners for a light cleaning. When they picked it up, they learned the cleaners has completely ruined her gown. It looked like it had been thrown in a washing machine, ironed by hand with a flat iron and scorched. The bride and her sister called me in a panic at 4:30 p.m. on Friday with the Reception occurring the next day. I sent them to Katerina Bocci, a couture bridal gown designer located in Shelby Township, Michigan. She immediately canceled all of her appointments that evening, called in her two designers, and completely remade the exact gown by 2:00 a.m. with some differences because of designer patents. When the bride came to her shop the next morning, Katerina had soft music, a glass of wine and a masseuse there to relax her before the pre-reception pictures were to begin at 3:00 p.m. Katerina Bocci goes above and beyond excellence for her brides. Katerina told me, "I simply cannot have a bride in tears."
