Erika's Custom Destination Wedding Dress

The process of witnessing Chelsea create what had been a vision/dream turned reality is something I will never forget. The love she has for her art shone through in every appointment at Modehaus Bridal Atelier. Having my custom dress designed balanced out some of the stress/pressure that can pile on while planning a wedding. Every single appointment was unforgettable. This collaborative journey was so special to me and my mom and sisters who joined me in this creative process. We met roughly 8 times, and each appointment unveiled more of the time and work Chelsea dedicated to my custom gown. No detail was too small. On my wedding day, I truly felt honored to wear something so beautiful and luxurious, yet understated and romantic. Every single intricate detail, down to her custom one-of-a-kind pockets, were not lost on me. I honestly couldn't count the number of kind words and compliments I received on her work. Chelsea, you are a QUEEN of your craft, and my dress was more perfect than I could have ever imagined. Thank you!

This was by far the best decision I made during my wedding planning process (other than my choice in groom of course)! Chelsea makes beautiful dresses that are both naturally flattering to a woman’s body and drop dead gorgeous! Highly recommend!!

Chelsea is fantastic. I was on the fence about having a custom gown made, but Chelsea made me feel so comfortable with the process and confident that I could truly have the dress of my dreams, that it was an easy decision to make. She created my stunning dream dress! She put together all of my design desires and wishes and made my dress GORGEOUS and perfect! I couldn’t be more delighted in the experience! Plus, she is just fabulous to work with - good for the mind & soul, when creating such an important piece of the wedding day!

Five stars just aren't enough. Working with Chelsea was a joy and a privilege. At the suggestion of friends, I went to Modehaus after my (now) wife proposed to me. Because marriage equality didn't happen until recent years, I'd never imagined myself as a bride - nor had I imagined I'd want a bridal gown. But, after meeting Chelsea and seeing her amazing collection, I realized that not only did I want to wear a bridal gown, but that Modehaus had exactly the dress I didn't know I was looking for! The experience of working with Chelsea was beyond wonderful. She has an infectious enthusiasm and is dedicated to getting every last detail just right. She was open to modifications, and she never, ever made me feel self conscious. My wife and I both ended up having our bridal attire made by Chelsea, and together we looked - and felt - radiant. I can't recommend Modehaus enough. You will not be disappointed.

I cannot speak highly enough of working with Chelsea or her ability to make your wedding dress dreams come true! She was wonderful to work with from start to finish. I had an idea of a dress that I had been holding onto based off of a dress I had seen in a movie. She really listened to what I wanted and made changes to ensure that it would look flattering. It felt like I had a partner and friend throughout the process. On top of how great Chelsea was, I had a once in a lifetime experience with my mom as we got to design something beautiful together for my big day. Everything was perfect; thank you Modehaus for such an amazing experience!!

So much more than a wedding dress! Chelsea designed a custom wedding dress for me and did major alterations to my wife's jumpsuit. Working with Chelsea was our favorite part of wedding preparations. She was flexible but shared her opinions and recommendations. We spent the first part of each visit just chatting and filling her in on where we were with the rest of our wedding plans - this was so helpful (and anxiety reducing) for us since we did not have a wedding planner. She gave us both exactly what we wanted but better than we would have known to ask for. My wedding dress was absolutely the most beautiful thing I have ever had on my body and it made me feel amazing. My wife looked beyond gorgeous in her custom-fitted jumpsuit and Chelsea even hid snaps in the legs so that my wife could switch to flats for the ceremony. We highly recommend Chelsea! Do a custom dress with this talented maker- it's a luxury but it is worth it.
