Customer testimonial

"Working with Maki from La Sposa Berlinese has been amazing. She is extremely professional and knowledgeable. I trusted her completely with altering my wedding dress. She was flexible with my timeline and very communicative. From the start, my dress looked good but she made it even better. I am so pleased with the results and cannot recommend her enough!" - Michelle R.
