Dressmaking & Falling in Love

At the Atelier, we do many different things!  We wanted to share a bit more about our custom wedding gowns, what that experience entails, and a little love story of our own.

For many brides it is their first time going through an entire dressmaking process, and it is amazing for them to see how their idea can be transformed into the sample toile, into fabric, and then all the way through to the final, finished gown.” — Jennifer

The custom wedding gown process includes an initial meeting, a design consultation, a visual design, a toile (or sample of your gown), the creation of your final gown, and before you know it, you have your custom wedding gown complete! After you’ve undergone the dressmaking experience, there is one final perk to ensure it is a memory that stays with you forever. A beautiful painting of your custom-made wedding gown will be created by Maui-based artist, Craig Mullins, who also happens to be my husband.

Craig is a wonderfully talented artist and concept designer. He has created art for numerous films: Forrest Gump, Apollo 13, Babe, Flubber, Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, Matrix Revolutions, and many other feature films. He has also created art for books, video games, and films. You can find his work at www.goodbrush.com. And if you are wondering how we met…We were both working in Hollywood at the time. Mutual friends set us up on a blind date. Our first date was at the Hollywood Canteen. And you know how people say it was love at first sight, and often you brush it off and think that isn’t actually a real thing? Well, that’s exactly what our first date was, it was simply love at first sight.

So to conclude, the dressmaking process is a very unique and special process curated to you and with you the entire way. It is accentuated with the perk of a one-of-a-kind painting by my husband Craig. And every part of the process is woven with love, care, and the most meticulous attention to detail.
