Maradee Wahl: Brides - Joana, November 2013

There are few things more valuable during a bride-to-be's months leading up to the wedding than having someone experienced in all things bridal: someone kind, honest, with a standard of excellence and perfection, always there for a word of advice kind of lady who makes you feel like a queen the second you walk in the door and meet her. Maradee was this person for me. Joana,October 2015

With a short engagement of 4 months ahead of me, I walked through the doors of Carolina Herrera, my first stop for trying on bridal gowns, only to be greeted with the warmest of smiles and royal treatment. The two dresses I had been interested in from my online search quickly took the backseat to a gown Maradee nonchalantly placed in my fitting room to be tried on first…..that was the undeniably the one: my very first dress I tried on. This is the eye Maradee has for dresses that fit your style and body type.

Maradee made every fashion decision become something so much more manageable than one might think. I wanted my bridesmaids to have unique dresses, each one different, but with a common theme, and Maradee helped bring this all together within a budget that worked for each bridesmaid. Each new idea that came through, I would email Maradee with photos attached and run it by her and sure enough, I would promptly receive a response saying yay or nay. I always new I could count on her for help.

Another success story was with my shoes. She recommended I stop by BHLDN close by the CH boutique after my first dress fitting, and VOILA, the first pair of shoes I tried on matched perfectly with my gown. Maradee’s familiarity with the various stores, their styles, price ranges, etc… was invaluable. She also helped dress my sister (matron of honor) and mother into gorgeous dresses for the occasion.

She taught my sister and I many tidbits on how to handle the dress and veil throughout the wedding day. Last but not least, Maradee was genuinely wanting to know that my wedding day would turn out to be all that I had hoped and dreamed…… and it was! Thank you, thank you, thank you Maradee. Your kindness, professionalism, and excellence in what you do will not be forgotten.
