"I went to Cierra in 2016 with an impossible request. I brought her a wedding dress that didn't fit me! Not only did it not zip shut but I wanted her to redesign it into a completely different dress. I showed her some inspiration shots of what I wanted and asked her if it could be done. She never hesitated at all with my vision for my dress supported me every step of the way, she made the impossible happen. Cierra would periodically reach out to me sending me images of ways the dress could be draped to ensure I was included in the production of the dress. There are things she will understand over me as she is the designer so I trusted her opinion. My final fitting was incredible! She transformed this dress into a masterpiece! She even selected a beaded applique and asked if I would like it to be added. It was something I never would have imagined working but completed my perfect wedding gown. I'm beyond grateful for her talents and capabilities for making my dream day come true. Thank you Cierra, your're incredible!"

The instant I saw your wedding gown collection at a local fashion show, I knew I wanted you to design my wedding gown someday. I wasn't engaged at the time, but the second I was I reached out to you. Thank you once again for designing my dream dress. I’ve received so many compliments since that day and have raved about your amazing work ever since! Thank you again for all of your hard work!

"My wedding was at the end of May and it went so awesomely! I couldn't have asked for a better day, and life since has been smooth sailing as a married couple now!  The jewelry was amazing, and I got so many compliments on it! I know I will always cherish it. It made for some great close up photos too. Thank you so much again, couldn't have been happier with it! "
