My daughter had a wonderful experience at this small boutique. They were very attentive and knew exactly what she wanted. I would recommend this place to anyone.

I purchased my dress at another bridal shop, but had Epiphany do the alterations. They did a great job, always pleasant and did 5 fittings. The dress came out perfectly! There were a few details on the original design that I wasn't thrilled with and Christine saw my vision and made it a reality. Great job!!!

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE: THEY NEVER ORDERED MY BRIDESMAID DRESSES! DIDN'T REALIZE THEIR "MISTAKE" UNTIL 2 WEEKS BEFORE MY WEDDING.

I came to this "boutique" early in February with plenty of time to order bridesmaid dresses for my wedding in late July, 2013. I live in Sacramento (about 3 I/2 hours away), but since my wedding was going to be in Carmel and most of my bridesmaids live around that area, I carefully selected this place after reading all the nice reviews.

My bridesmaids and I came to Epiphany in February and selected the gowns that they would be wearing. My maid of honor would be wearing a dress from a different designer. All of my bridesmaids paid a deposit on their dresses and some of them even paid for their dresses in full. As anticipated, we knew the dresses could take a few months to come in, so I was okay with not hearing back from the shop for a couple of months. However, I still would call from time to time to check on the order and they would say, "They're coming in. It takes months for these dresses to come in".

Two weeks before my wedding I get a phone call from my maid of honor saying that Ephiphany contacted her to get my phone number. How in the world do they not have my number? I speak to Angela and she says my dresses were never put through the system. Yes, as in never ordered. Yes they took deposits and payments, but no they never actually checked to verify that the dresses were really "coming in" as they would so eloquently say.

This is an unprofessional "business" with fluctuating and inconsistent business hours. And by the way, the name boutique... far from it. My closet is probably bigger than this hole in the wall. Expect bad customer service and a condescending attitude from these people... Except for your first visit... Yes, they will be really nice before they take your money.

I had a GREAT experience with Epiphany! It was a little far from San Francisco, so I started with a very responsive email correspondence to the shop, making sure they had the dresses I was interested in trying. They knew their stuff, had recommendations to make based on what I liked, were very accommodating for appointment times since I didn't know how long the drive would be. They include alterations and really have the knowledge and background to tell you what is possible to alter and how feasible it will be. They were patient with me as I stood around their store indecisively going between two dresses. They worked with me very fairly on a good price for the perfect dress. I highly recommend them!

Although I didn't buy my dress at Epiphany, I did have them do all the alterations and purchased a bridal belt that really made my dress spectacular. My dress originally had straps, but the Epiphany team was ready and willing to help make my strapless dress dreams come true and it could not have turned out better. Having many of my bridesmaids fly in a different points, they were flexible in letting us come in numerous times to do fittings and try on veils, earrings, and belts. They were gracious hosts and helped make the whole process so much fun! The day before the wedding, I was so busy setting up and getting ready, I let time get away and they stayed open an extra 15 minutes so that I could pick up my dress!!! It was amazing! If I hadn't bought my dress before stepping into Epiphany, I know I would have fallen in love with on of their amazing dresses from their huge selection!

So, I am just a bridesmaid in my future-sister-in-law's wedding...so not being a bride might have an impact on the service I have received. I am not sure even where to begin...We were asked by the bride to have our measurements into Christine by the end of January with payment. It took several calls to even get my measurements in - and that was with leaving messages!

Now it is beginning of March, and we JUST heard from Christine regarding our order. She stated that the order was placed, sent the credit card authorization form, and emailed us a copy of our receipt. AND I can't begin to tell you how WRONG the order was! I have now emailed and called her, but haven't heard anything in 24 hours. I haven't sent in the credit card form, so at least I'm not out money. My main concern is for the bride. She doesn't need extra stress at this point! AND if the wrong size was ordered, then all dresses have to be reordered to be in the same dye lot...WHAT A MESS!!!

After shopping at bridal shops all over the SF/San Jose area, I found this small bridal boutique in Carmel. For such a small shop, the selection was right up there with the bigger stores, but the service was finally convinced me to get my Watters gown there. I am telling all my friends! It is wonderful to be treated so well. Put this store of you must sees!
