From the moment I walked into Ava Laurenne Bride, I felt like I was with family. In this day and age of Pinterest, social media & pop culture, I had seen pictures of beautiful brides in gorgeous gowns and magical "say yes to the dress" moments & it was hard not to compare and question if I'd ever have that in real life. Well, ALB exceeded those expectations and gave me an experience even better than the movies. The entire staff treated me like their only client & made me feel so beautiful & special. I came in thinking I would get a form-fitting mermaid dress, but when I arrived, I saw a beautiful Justin Alexander ballgown on a mannequin in the sitting area and I knew it was THE dress. They immediately pulled it down for me & agreed with me that it was the one. Once I had MY magical "say yes to the dress" moment, the owner Wendy & her amazing husband Gabe celebrated with me & my family & gave me such a special treat that I will remember & cherish forever. To Wendy, Gabe, & the ALB team, thank you for making my experience better than anything I could have ever imagined. I have recommended ALB to every bride-to-be since & I will never stop singing your praises. Ava Laurenne Bride is simply the best!
