When I was a little girl, I dreamt of a black wedding dress made out of feathers. As I began my wedding dress search as an adult, there was a part of me that didn't want to let that crazy vision go (although a black dress was certainly out of the questions)! Living in New York City, I was surrounded by avant garde bridal shops, all of which were out of my price range. Stepping into those stores, I felt like an imposter, a pauper parading as a Queen. Nothing wowed me until I stumbled upon Madeleine's Daughter, which was recommended by a family friend who had found her dress there. I was helped by Brandie, who could not have been sweeter! I told her about my slightly different taste and she pulled a few dresses that immediately stood out to me. All of the dresses were beautiful, but one in particular struck me in a way that no other dress ever had. As soon as I put it on I knew it was the one, it even had a feather-lined bust! The little girl inside of me had found her perfect dress, and the adult me had as well. I would never have found this dress without Brandie and the wonderful staff of Madeleine's Daughter. I certainly wowed all those New Yorkers!
