I am so in love with the dress, I want to wear it again before sending it to storage. Thank you for the compliments. The venue was fantastic, the weather was perfect. I couldn't ask for a better day. David is a lucky guy but truth be told, I am the lucky one.  I don't know many men that would have spent that much money on their girl's dream dress but he did.  He knew nothing else would suit me. Rani is a genius, please tell her how much I loved that dress and how I dreamed about it for years. I would get married over and over again in all her gowns. And I would always purchase them from you! A girl can dream, right?
 
Xoxo,

I'm afraid there are not enough words to express just how truly wonderful the St. Pucchi experience is, but I will most certainly try.

Like most girls, shopping for a wedding gown is the magical, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity I dreamed of my whole life. I got to be a part of the wedding gown search for both of my sisters and I remember how joyous I felt for them, so I could only imagine what emotions would be in store for me once it was my turn. My St. Pucchi experience began long before I was a bride. My sister, Dorothea, found a gown she liked in the pages of a bridal magazine. It was a St. Pucchi gown. At the time, I didn't know much about wedding gowns, but I quickly realized St. Pucchi was a name I'd never forget. Once my sister became a St. Pucchi bride in 2004, my heart was set on one day becoming a St. Pucchi bride as well. 

St. Pucchi was first on our list when I got engaged, and even years later they remembered making my sister's gown. That's just one of the infinite details that sets St. Pucchi apart from the rest. When my mom and I arrived in Los Angeles, I had no idea what to expect. Our appointment was at ten in the morning and after being whisked inside, we spent the entire day there. If walking up to the beautiful window displays was magical, then being inside with all the gowns was the icing on the cake. Oh, and trying on the gowns? Heavenly. Each dress is its own masterful work of art and together the collection is museum worthy. We sat with Rani in her gorgeous office upstairs while we got acquainted. We shared visions and ideas, and then began trying on dresses. Rani is as kind as she is beautiful, and her creative mind is awe-inspiring. Each person on the St. Pucchi team was a delight to work with, and contributed to our unforgettable experience. 

I wasn't sure how I would ever decide on anything, because there truly was not a gown I didn't like. Like a little sign from above though, the one came in with a whisper and captured my heart almost immediately. I tried on six gowns total, two of which I tried on after we found mine. When we came to the gown, I thought it was beautiful on the hanger. It had an elegant and pure aesthetic that seemed both understated and opulent at the same time. I was excited to try it on, but I had no idea how quickly it would become the most perfect gown for me. Before it was even zipped entirely, I started to feel something different than I'd felt in any of the previous gowns. Moments after stepping out of the dressing room to reveal it to my mom, there were teary eyes and a unique excitement and happiness that signaled to everyone the search must be over. We were taking pictures to send to my sisters for their approval, and consulting with Rani on alterations and design elements to make it one of a kind. Rani and her team took measurements and planned, jotting down notes and consulting about her vision. Rani already had all the perfect accessories. Shoes, hairpieces, earrings- it was all there, and it was as if it had been waiting just for me. 

I cannot stress enough how exquisite, unique, and timeless her gowns are. St. Pucchi gowns are truly in a league of their own. I still pinch myself thinking about how amazingly blessed I am to have had the opportunity to work with Rani and to have a St. Pucchi gown. My St. Pucchi wedding gown is one of my most cherished possessions that I will surely keep all the days of my life. My groom, Calen, said that the very first moment he saw me walking down the aisle to meet him, I literally took his breath away.

I have nothing but positive things to say and, like I said earlier, I don't think there are enough words to express my overwhelming adoration for St. Pucchi. The St. Pucchi experience is like that of a fairytale. I cannot thank y'all enough for all you have done.  

Much love and sincerity, 

Elizabeth

Two St. Pucchi dresses just took my breath away when I tried them on. But they were so different from each other, and I couldn’t decide which one I wanted. In stepped Rani. She was like a fairy godmother, but, instead of a magic wand, she had a pencil and a sketch book. I told her I loved this first dress but that I had always wanted a low back dress and felt more comfortable with straps. What does she do? She changes the dress to a low back dress and adds gorgeous straps. She also designed a one-of-a-kind cathedral-length veil to match. Next, I tell her I love the second dress, but I would want it to be short and with thicker straps. What does she do? She creates a beautiful 1920s inspired dress with thick, beaded straps and fun, flapper fringe for the skirt.She took the dresses I was standing in and showed me in the mirror and with her sketches exactly how they would look. I could truly envision them. She was a true professional, but at the same time very warm and personable. I could tell that she really cared about making my special day truly special. And it was! The dresses arrived 3 months before my wedding, and they were more beautiful than I had even imagined. The changes she had made were seamless. I received so many compliments on my dresses that I felt like it was the only thing I talked about all night! Words cannot express how absolutely amazing these dresses are. I felt like the most beautiful woman in the world on my wedding day, and it was all because of Rani and her amazing dresses at St. Pucchi. She is a true artist, who truly cares about her brides. I feel truly blessed and honored to have met Rani and to have worn her gorgeous designs.

I've always been hypnotized by the intricate and elaborate details of a St. Pucchi Garment. It's a work of art and very non-traditional in today's standards which is why I chose to wear one of her unique pieces on my very special day. I felt like I was transported through time in a funnel of tulle, crystals, and lace!!  

I LOVE my dress! 

Cheers!

There truly are no words to describe how I felt about my St. Pucchi wedding gown, I guess the closest word would be magical, from the lace sleeves, to the intricate blue beads along the edge of the lace, everything was magical. From the second I put it on that morning to the second I took it off, the snow never stopped falling. My husband Phil and I choose Lake Placid, NY as our wedding destination because it not only is where we fell in love, but we both love the snow, and the snow loved us that day! I couldn't of picked a better location than the Whiteface Lodge to showcase my gown, it truly is one of a kind and I don't think the way I felt in it could ever be replicated. I truly was a snow Queen that day.

Dear Rani,

I’m writing this email to let you know how magical and memorable you made our wedding day. From the moment I walked into your store I knew there would not be another store but St Pucchi to buy my gown. The dress you made for me was the most exquisite, elegant yet somehow sexy wedding gown. Your demeanor, grace, patience, and elegance made our experience that much more meaningful and special.
Thank you for making me truly feel like a princess bride. I am forever grateful.

With love and gratitude,

Angelle Grace Wacker.
