I was introduced to Maradee through my wedding planner, who had nicknamed her “Mary Poppins.” Jillian,December 2016

I understood immediately upon meeting her that she was deserving of the title. She is not only an expert seamstress but has the sweetest, most nurturing demeanor that calms those pesky bridal nerves.

Each fitting with Maradee was an experience I looked forward to in the months leading up to my wedding; I got to admire my beautiful dream dress while watching her work her magic. By the time she was done with alterations, my dress fit like a glove. She even attached a custom silk pocket to the inside of the skirt for my insulin pump.

On the day of the wedding, having Maradee there to tend to my dress (and any other formalwear snafus) felt like a million dollar insurance net. She was her ever-pleasant self while quietly making sure everything looked and felt perfect for my entire bridal party. She was truly a special edition to my wedding “team,” and one that I would say should be crucial to every bride’s peace of mind. I can’t thank her enough!
