Wedding Dress pressing and on-site alteration service-
Dear Bride,
Since 1994 I have provided a unique and valuable service to brides by assisting them on their wedding day with the preparation and care of their attire--and much more. My thirty plus years of experience in custom sewing and design; along with retail sales, buying, and fashion show production make me uniquely qualified for this position. My technical skills and customer service expertise enable me to handle both the specialty garments and the members of the wedding party with ease and grace.
Brides travel from all over the world to wed in our beautiful wine country. It is a challenge for them to arrive with their wedding gown in perfect condition. You are likely emotionally and financially invested in your wedding gown; it may be the most expensive dress you will ever purchase--an investment worth protecting! Hotel irons are not designed to press fine fabrics and can damage the delicate specialty materials used to make bridal gowns. You could chose to have a dry cleaner press your dress, but that will require you finding time in your busy schedule to deliver and pick up the garment--and risk re-wrinkling it in transport.
I bring high quality specialty irons designed to press and/or steam detailed dresses that could not be pressed in any other way. In addition, I arrive at the wedding site with a wide variety of sewing equipment and supplies ready to take care of any detail that may need attention. I help the bridal party dress, see to it that everyone is perfectly groomed, and assist you during photos. Brides consistently appreciate the complete attention I provide them on their special day.
My offering is unique in the Wine Country and I have long-established relationships with respected event planners and popular wedding venues. I look forward to pampering you on your wedding day!
Sincerely, Heidi Johnson Read less

Heidi saved my sanity before my wedding. About 3 weeks before, I realized that my close friends schedules were not going to allow for any of them to help with me getting ready. I had a dress with an inside corset and zipper and buttons outside and there was no way I could get into it by myself. The stress of planning combined with multiple work trips had thrown me over the edge and I had a mini meltdown. Fortunately there was Heidi! My fiancee told me to book her after my planner recommended it. The next day I scheduled a meeting with her to discuss my bustle. When we met she gave me a visual of how it would fold and look. My skirt was asymmetrical and needed attention to detail in order to keep the style consistent after it was bustled. We tweaked it together until it would both look right and be functional.

The day of the wedding she and Tina came to my house with the finished dress before I arrived from my hair and makeup and set up her steamer to press the dress on-site. Then she put me into the dress, and made it look just right (even better than the salon had done) along with my other accoutrements. She also helped my dad with his tie and was available for any other last minute wardrobe issues.
Then after the ceremony they helped us during the photos- fixing my train and veil. Finally they tied up the bustle on my dress so I could walk freely the rest of the night. I was so pleased to have this help!

I contacted Heidi just days before our wedding needing my dress, the groom's suit, and 2 bridesmaid dresses steamed and pressed for our big day. I'm not sure how I let such an important detail slip my brain, but Heidi responded to my inquiry the same day and everything went off without a hitch. She was very accommodating with our schedules, and I cannot thank her enough!!

Having a wedding cross country, one of my biggest unknowns was how do I get my dress out there and looking perfect?!?! I was so thankful my coordinator recommended Heidi's services. We worked with her to press my dress a few days before my wedding on-site, my moms dress, my grooms, and 8-10 other items we were wearing throughout our travels in Healdsburg. Her expertise is like none other. In the wedding industry, it gets so confusing to pick out "necessities" and assess "value". I can honestly say I felt like this was some of my best money spent. I even had an emergency with my dress from my seamstress at home and Heidi was magically able to fix it right up days before the pressing. She has a very unique approach as a seamstress than I've seen and her expertise certainly is in delicate wedding dresses. Whether you are local or far away, do yourself a favor and hire Heidi to assure you look your best in the dress and the wedding party is right in tact! :)

Heidi was one of the preferred vendors at our reception venue. She was described as a "presser". Naturally we assumed that meant just touching up the brides and bridesmaid dresses. So when my daughter called for a quote she thought..."Oh my! Well that is one way I can save money." Luckily, I called Heidi back and after discussing things in depth we decided to hire her. BEST decision we made.
She and her team...in this case Jan stayed with us the whole day. Yes, they press, but they do almost too many other things to describe. Here are a few examples. Sewed a small tear in the wedding dress, I forgot clear bra straps, she had some. Helped the wedding party dress. Stayed with the wedding party the whole time to make sure pictures were flawless. She has a discerning eye and noticed if a collar was out, a button missing etc. and fixed them. The photography sessions went so much quicker because of her, and the pictures are better. Added calm to what can be a stressful day.
I would have her a hundred times if I had a hundred weddings, and my daughter totally agrees. I think the words were "You were so right mom." Ahhhh music to a mom's ears after all the crazy wedding stuff. Thanks Heidi and Jan!

My wedding was in California and I am living in Kansas, so our destination wedding was a bit stressful regarding transferring my wedding dress. I thought about all of the ways that I could get my dress there and came across Heidi's information. I contacted her and she was super flexible with coming to steam my dress and checking it over. Heidi did a wonderful job and even helped me hang my dress up for photos. She had great attention to detail and was fun to hang out with before my wedding. Also, she monogrammed a hanky for my husband and I. It turned out so lovely. A great take away that we will forever enjoy. Overall, my experience with Heidi was fantastic!

Heidi and her daughter were AMAZING! She arrived on time to pick up the dresses and bring them on site for pressing, she helped us all get dressed fast as we were running late from our hair and makeup, she fixed a portion of my dress that had come apart with travel, and lastly added a very memorable touch to my dress (monogram in blue and attached a ring from my mother in law as the something borrowed). I am so happy I decided to book her as she helped the day run smoothly and also wonderful to work with!

If you are having your wedding in the Napa Valley I highly recommend you book Heidi. She was a surprise miracle on the day of my wedding. I traveled from VA and was looking for someone to help press my dress before the wedding. Heidi was responsive on short notice and I just couldn't believe what a tremendous help she was. She came to my hotel with an assistant and pressed my wedding dress, made last minute alterations, helped my bridesmaides get me in the dress - and made sure everything fit just perfectly. She also pressed all the bridesmaids dresses. Honestly, her last minute detail work made all the difference. What a blessing!

I live on the east coast and recently got married in Napa. Heidi was fantastic! She let me ship my dress to her in advance and then stored my dress, brought it to me the day before my wedding and pressed not only my dress but all of the wedding suits and other family member dresses. Heidi made the extra effort to send me a picture of my dress when it safely arrived at her house and even embroidered my groom's and my initials inside my dress after receiving my permission. It is such a special, extra little detail and was in blue so helped fulfill my something blue. :) Heidi was efficient and did a beautiful job pressing my dress, which included feathers and some other details that required extra attention.

WOW! I came from out of town to Napa for a destination wedding and decided to hire a tailor for the day of to ensure that my dress would be wrinkle free. However, Heidi went above and beyond all my expectations! Not only did she steam all of our dresses, she sewed a bra into my mom's dress so the straps wouldn't show, she ironed my husband's jacket, she sent a lint roller to all the groomsmen, and she fixed a bead on my MIL's dress. She also went with me and the photographer to the shoot to ensure my dress stayed nice and looked great in the photos. Before the ceremony, she even cleaned my feet and shoes since we had been walking around outside. I felt like I had a personal assistant on the day of - one that I never expected to have! It was perfect because it allowed my mom and my bridesmaids to relax a bit as well. I could go on and on - but you get the idea!
