I felt like Cinderella when she found her Fairy God Mother. Chantal and Said were full of enthusiasm and panache. They had a magical ability not only to see the unusual but also to help me experience the beauty of each dress I tried to the fullest. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, Chantal and Saida were most receptive to the ideas I shared in terms of my atypical fashion sensibility. They were communicative, honest and encouraging and by the time the wedding arrived I felt like they were family... I even invited them to attend. My wedding took place in the South of France and the ladies remained extremely candid yet diplomatic in putting up with my 'ahem' colorful and unusual flair. Being French, they knew exactly what would work and wouldn't and yet they helped me find a dress that was both reflective of my personality and the type of reception I was going to hold.
