I cannot recommend Mary enough! I am a very petite bride, so the dress I tried on at the salon and the dress I received in the right size looked quite different proportion-wise. Mary was great at working with the dress to make the proportions as close to what they were, and in the end, we ended up with a unique design that I loved even more than the original! Her prices were also very reasonable!

Mary, is hands down the most talented lady and like a fairy godmother. My dress had a very long train and detail. The magic she worked to make it fit me like a glove was great. She had to do my bustle a few times and she made it extra easy for the girls to do. She also made me my veil, I fell in love with it! She is so reasonably priced, and the sweetest women. Be sure to book her in advance as she is very booked.
Thank you so much Mary for all the hard work, and veil!

Mary is amazing!! She is a true pro who knows absolutely everything about wedding dresses. She is always booked because she is that good. My wedding dress needed the usual alterations, added a belt, bustle etc. After all was finished, my dress fit like a glove!! She was informative explaining different options and how to go about it all. She is super sweet as well. She has all her past wedding gown photos on display and they range from regular wedding gowns to completely custom gowns. Use Mary! Her assistant Kelly is who sent me and I am forever grateful for that! Thanks to you both!

Book Mary as early as possible to secure a spot... she is absolutely worth it! Mary pays attention to small details and adds sweet little personal touches to her work (such as adding a blue ribbon in the bustle to cover your "something blue" necessity). She also added a very pretty brooch to my mother's dress as well to keep the jacket closed at the top, as she noticed that my mom was a little uncomfortable with the amount of cleavage showing. Mary was very accommodating with finding and adding sleeves to my dress and when I decided at the last minute (about 2 weeks before my wedding!) that I didn't like them anymore and wanted to use a different type of lace, she immediately changed them with no problem. Mary is phenomenal and I would recommend her to anybody who wants superior work, with attention to detail, and a loving touch! Her confidence will put any stressed out bride at ease, and she will do everything she can to make sure you're comfortable.

Mary is the BEST! She did an amazing job altering my wedding dress that I bought off the rack. It was a couple sizes too big and had strange cap sleeves. Mary basically reconstructed the top of my dress and removed the cap sleeves. When it was finished it looked as if it was always meant to be that way. I received many compliments on how great the dress looked, more importantly I felt beautiful in it! Thank you to Mary for doing such an amazing job, I would definitely recommend her to anyone!

Loved working with Mary! I found my wedding dress online at BCBG for a few hundred bucks (score!), but the problem was that there were two large slits going up the front of it. Mary closed them partly as well as added custom-dyed lace behind them to make an awesome custom creation!! She also tightened up the waist and added a built in bra. LOVED it!

Really reasonable prices here as well. Thanks, Mary!!

Absolutely amazing! There is no other seamstress i would recommend. She is extremely affordable and does amazing work. Because of her, my dress looked like it was made for my body and so many of my guests made the same comment. Mary squeezed me in pretty late in the planning process without a worry and she made me feel like a priority every time i went to her. There are plenty of seamstresses that are much closer to my house, but I would drive out of my way to her house EVERY TIME because there is no one else I would've trusted with my wedding dress and any future alterations!

Mary altered my wedding dress for my wedding in June 2015.
I had bought an off the rack Monique Lhuillier dress that was one size too big for me.
The dress was also too long for me being that I'm 5'2.
Mary basically had to take my dress apart and re-sew it to fit me correctly.
She was very open and honest with me. Mary also made me a bridal belt and used my mom's veil to make my own veil. She used some lace pieces and added it to my mom's veil.
Mary's prices were very reasonable.

Why the -1 star?
I got my pictures back from my photographer and my keyhole back is crooked!
Not sure why no one noticed or maybe they didn't want to say anything!

But I would still definitely recommend Mary but just be sure everything is how you want it!

I cannot even begin to describe how great Mary is and how much I enjoyed working with her. I can be indecisive at times and with Mary's 30+ years of experience, she took care of me and my dress from the very first fitting. She transformed my dress so that it fit me perfectly. She also made my belt and my veil - both of which I loved. Prices for everything was very very reasonable. Call her early - she books by event date. Hope you get a chance to work with her!
