wedding dress # l27asale0
from you only 4 weeks before my wedding. You sent the dress in 1 week
allowing me plenty of time to alter it. You will never ever know how
worried I was when I opened the box... I wanted an African ceremony and I
could not find a dress. The ones I did find, I could not afford. We
have been together for 23 years. My husband is a man of few words and he
rarely smiles. I have a beaming shot of him at the Church when
he first saw me in THE dress. Each and every person was crying
including some of the men. They said I was so beautiful. All
women think they are the most beautiful but I think I was at least in the
top ten brides. Buffalo New York has never seen a bride like me or a
wedding like ours. Enclosed you will find some pictures. You are worth
billions. Thanks for making this first time after 48 years bride feel
on top of the world.
Keep up the good work.
p.s. We were in the newspaper too.

The craftsmanship of the clothing was extraordinary. The
material, it's quality and rich appearance, culminated into
a very beautiful array of vibrant and stunning attires for
the entire bridal party.
Working with Kimma was a pleasure. She was always upbeat,
pleasant and positive about serving our bridal party. She
was always willing to accommodate us and to do whatever she
could to ensure that this occasion be as beautiful and
memorable as she possibly could. Whatever we asked or
whatever adjustments were needed, she was always willing to
try to help make it happen.
Kimma was very helpful in selecting the dresses for the
coordinators, in that, we wanted the style of dress from the
catalog, but not the same trim as was shown. She gave me her
professional opinion of what she thought would or would not
look attractive, and needless to say, the finished product
Thanks TeKay Designs
for such professional staff and such a beautiful line of
