  • Dear Kristie, Staff and Mary, Thank you so much for your kind attention to my dress distress! I cannot thank you enough. It was a beautiful wedding, a beautiful bride, a “not so bad” mom of the bride – a very lovely day. Thank you for altering Mary. Thank you Kristie, for going out of your way to make it right. I truly appreciate it.
