Katie's Wedding Gown and Heirloom Veil Preservation in Orange, CT

Katie and Erik met through a blind date that was arranged by a mutual friend two years ago, and got married this Spring at the same church where Katie's parents had their nuptials.

They brought the gown and veil to Orange Restoration Labs of CT after the wedding to be cleaned and preserved.
