My Wedding Story



Hello, my name is Yui. I am from Japan!
Let me tell you a little story about my wedding.
I met my husband, Aleksandr Kuznetsov, at the Hayden Library at Arizona State University. I was just going to meet my friends there and he happened to be standing with them! It was love at first sight. We started dating and soon after we decided to get married!

I had no idea how to plan for a wedding. When I was living in Japan I have been a guest at two wedding ceremonies. Being a guest however is not the same as planning for your own wedding. I simply could not picture myself as a bride. This is when I met Lana Gerimovich, a designer at Alis Fashion Design.

I met with Lana at her studio and she quickly took measurements of my 5 foot, 90 lbs stature and made a quick sketch of a basic dress design that will be most suitable for my body. Lana then asked me what my favorite flower was. “Sakura – a cherry blossom, the most famous and most admired flower of Japan,” I said. In spring time cherry blossoms turn the most majestic shades of pink and red all over Japan. Sakura blooms in spring when young people are entering and graduating from schools. Sakura, a cherry blossom, represents a new life and a new beginning. For me Sakura represented my new life I was about to start with my fiancé.

At that first meeting I also showed Lana a picture of my custom made kimono which features white, pink and red colors in its design. It reminds me of Sakura blooms.

My experience of having a custom made kimono in Japan showed me that the true quality of a garment comes from craftsmanship and attention to details by the designer. I wanted my wedding dress to be perfect and to reflect my culture and personality. I was impressed how carefully Lana listened to my story about Sakura and how carefully she studied a picture of my kimono. I knew then that my dress will be perfect.

Soon after my first meeting with Lana, the time came for my first fitting. I walked into her studio and saw the most beautiful white dress with reddish sash gently draped across the waste line. It instantly reminded me of the delicate Sakura blooms I saw in Japan. It was simply breathtaking.

I put on this dress and stood in front of a mirror. I felt like a beautiful cherry blossom. The dress fit perfectly, it moved and swayed just like a flower gently touched by the wind of spring. The design completely exceeded my expectations. I felt that Lana completely captured my dream and interpreted it in my dress design. It was simply enchanting.

I am truly thankful that Lana was able to bring my dream to reality. My custom-made wedding gown made me feel like the most beautiful bride in the world. I felt like a princess and I will cherish my dress for the rest of my life.

I am very happy to share with you the story of my custom-made wedding gown made by Alis Fashion Design. I feel that a wedding day is one of the most important days in a woman’s life. On my special day I felt like a princess thanks to Lana Gerimovich a designer at Alis Fashion Design. I recommend using her custom made design services to make your perfect, one of-a kind wedding gown.

Thank you, Lana for making my wedding day unforgettable.
