Heidi's creative talent and contagious personality made this a once in a life time opportunity. The quality and care taken with my dress can not be matched by anyone else.

"I knew what I wanted the whole time I was dress shopping, and I didn't find it until I went and met with Heidi! She pulled my ideas out of my head and drew up my dress in minutes... It was truly a magical experience! Customizing your wedding dress is the best way to go."

"Working with Heidi to create my wedding dress was amazing! When I could not find what I was looking for in any bridal store, I turned to Heidi to turn my dream dress into a reality! I wanted a dress that was classic but that had a little twist on it, like some color. Heidi listened to everything I wanted and incorporated it all into the dress; from the blush lining to the cut lace detailing around the neckline and deep, open back. It turned out more beautiful than I even imagined!"

"What an experience! Working with such an amazing wedding dress designer that understood my vision was one of the highlights of planning our wedding. I visited several local bridal gown shops in Birmingham. However, none of them were what I had in mind for my experience or dream dress...none were "it". To saw my third trip was a charm is an understatement. From scheduling my first appointment to picking up my dress, Heidi and her team nailed it. I had ideas in my head but upon entering the Atelier, it completely changed. Everyone was very patient, allowed me to try on my favs, and try every custom piece that she had in the shop! When I finally decided on THE dress, I wanted to add my own flare to make the dress more me. I tried and tried during two separate visits. You talk about a patient team...very patient for an indecisive bride! During the last visit, Heidi came out to assist. I explained what I wanted, and instantly Heidi went to the back and brought out some of the most beautiful lace. We both knew instantly that this was IT! My mom even captured this moment through a picture (of which I have to frame and give to Heidi as our AHA moment)! I cherish each visit and memory that I had the honor of sharing with Heidi and her team. Heidi is not only my wedding dress designer, but I consider her to be like family. Such a sweet, sweet soul! She has a keen attention to detail, and does not stop until her brides are 100% happy! I HIGHLY recommend Heidi to any and every bride around the world. The wedding planning is fun and nerving at times...but having the opportunity to customize your wedding dress and make it YOU with the help of an amazing, caring, talented, creative, patient, silly, soulful designer just makes it even better than you could ever dream! Thank you so much, Heidi and team!"

Dress Worn: heidi elnora: Jessie Ali + Custom Heirloom Veil
"Every bride dreams of feeling beautiful on her wedding day, and I knew I wanted a gown that held a quiet simplistic beauty. Heidi's designs also hold an element of southern charm and I knew she would be the one place I would find what I wanted. My gown was everything I had dreamed and even more. I wanted to add sentiment to our wedding and Heidi was able to create the most special wedding veil. My mom brought her own wedding gown to a fitting. Her gown was dated and aged with time but Heidi with her creative mind took all the lace and every pearl off the dress and designed a breathtaking veil that I am able to pass along to my sister and future daughters. Heidi created more than a beautiful veil, she created a family heirloom that will hold so much love throughout the years. She helped create the best day of my life"

"Heidi Elnora is an amazing wedding dress designer! You will not find a one of a kind gown anywhere else. She also makes you feel at home and part of the Heidi "family" as soon as you walk through the door. I couldn't imagine getting a dress from anywhere else. My dress was everything I ever wanted and more, with the addition the sentimental pieces in memory of my dad. I recommend any bride to be to become part of the Heidi family, it'll be your best decision and you won't regret it! Xoxo!"

"I cannot say enough wonderful things about Heidi. The love she has for each bride is evident as soon as you walk into the room. She applies her eye for intricate detail, the bride's individual style and her love for design to each creation. When we spoke, I felt like she was reading my mind! She not only designed was I had in mind but she added touches to make my wedding dress even more perfect. I have modeled in the fashion industry for 10years and I can honestly say that Heidi is one in a million with her talent and heart. Because I have tried on -thousands- of beautiful dresses, I was afraid that my wedding dress would feel like "just another pretty gown" from work. It would have been a challenge for any other designer to overcome, but not Heidi! Thank you Heidi for making a gown more beautiful than I ever could have imagined!"

"I was one of those girls that new exactly what she wanted her wedding dress to look like and I never waivered on the image I had for the perfect dress. Every dress I tried on looked beautiful, but it just wasn't "my dress". When I made the decision to visit Heidi, I was starting to become doubtful that I would never find "the one". Sitting down with Heidi was like sitting down with a friend I had not seen in years, she is full of life and was passionate about making me happy. From the moment I started describing what I wanted I could see her wheels turning. The results were more than what I had imagined. Some how she managed to reach inside my head and pull out exactly what I had dreamed of and added some extra touches to make it even more uniquely me. She gave me my perfect dress and then some!"

"The moment I saw a picture of the Clara Louise, I knew it would be my dress. Working with the Heidi Elnora team from the inital appointment until the final dress fitting was nothing short of special. I truly felt like family and loved being involved in the evolution of my dream dress. Now I keep it as a heirloom that I can hopefully pass down."
