“Stesha is amazingly talented and such a pleasure to work with. We met through a referral from my photographer and I knew that I wanted her to design my wedding dress the minute that I saw her sample dresses – the attention to detail and her eye for a modern but classic design far exceeded any of the other dresses that I had previously tried on. I knew the basic style that I was looking for, and her guidance helped create the perfect dress for me. She listened to all of my feedback during our fitting sessions, and I was grateful that she knew when to suggest an alternate approach or a slight change to the design that improved the overall look and fit. A couple of weeks before my wedding she agreed to design a custom veil for me with beautiful hand-stitched lace and I absolutely loved it. The dress that Stesha created for me was one of my favourite parts of our wedding – everything, from the placement of the lace to the fabric that she chose, was perfect. I would highly recommend Stesha.” —Annie

“When I got engaged, I was excited to finally shop for my wedding dress. I knew exactly what I was looking for as I had the concept in my head ever since I can remember, so I thought the process would be a breeze. Boy was I wrong! Being a very particular person and after 3 failed attempts at local bridal shops, I knew I had to seek other options.
I reached out to Stesha in hopes that she would be the one to put my concept to life and most importantly, within my budget. As my first experience with a custom bridal designer didn't go so well, I was a bit discouraged to give it another shot but knew I had to since the work on Stesha's Instagram looked amazing.
I am incredibly happy that I followed my gut. Stesha exceeded my expectations! She was so easy to talk to, understood my style, made expert suggestions and created the wedding dress of my dreams. Although I ended up exceeding my budget, I was happy to do so because the 3D silk flowers, pearls and lace trim on my veil was worth every penny. I love my every single detail about my custom bridal gown and would have Stesha make me another custom dress any day! Thank you!” —Criselda

"My wedding dress was definitely one of the most important things to me when planning my wedding. After having the opportunity to see Stesha’s work first hand, I knew she was the perfect person to design my dress!
It’s always difficult to know what style of dress is going to look great on you...so many fabrics, laces and silhouettes to choose from! The dress style I thought I wanted was actually not the style I ended up going for... Stesha helped me find the right dress design for me and executed that vision beautifully. I couldn’t be happier with how the dress looked on my wedding day...it fit and looked exactly how I imagined. The dress also photographed beautifully! Stesha takes the time to ensure all the tiny little details are considered. I would highly recommend Stesha to any bride to be....she is incredibly talented and an absolute pleasure to work with." — Sara

"Thank you so much for creating the dress of my dreams. From the moment I learned that you had created and worn your own wedding dress, I knew that I could trust you with my dress.
Working with you was a wonderful experience. I enjoyed our meetings and felt that you knew what I was looking for and would execute it perfectly. Our general aesthetic styles aligned so that helped too. I respected your honesty on what would work and what wouldn’t, and trusted your knowledge and experience in making recommendations and suggestions.
As the process requires you to put your complete trust in someone without seeing or trying the final product until closer to the end, I will admit it made me a little nervous, especially as my wedding day drew nearer. When I finally saw the final product, I was so happy. My dress was beautiful. The first time I put it on, it felt amazing. Everything, from the materials you selected, to the construction of the dress was a sign of your professionalism, your attention to detail and your craftsmanship. I am very happy to be the proud owner of one of the very first Stesha Ho originals and I would recommend you to anyone looking to have a dress made especially for them." — Anabela

"The idea of having a high quality and hand made gown that was unique to me was so appealing, I couldn’t resist. But I had no clue what I wanted which probably made me an incredibly difficult client! Fortunately, Stesha has both the incredible skills and creative vision to custom make AND design wedding gowns!
Even when I was incredibly indecisive she was patient and understanding. Eventually Stesha designed for me a stunning wedding dress that I absolutely fell in love with and never would have thought of for myself! The sheer lace deep-v was both romantic and modern. The mermaid gown silhouette hugged my curves and fit me like a glove! The tiny hand sewn jewels and elegant buttons in the back were delicate yet gorgeous. The attention to detail was incredible and it amazed me how such an ornate dress could be so comfortable and lightweight!
The whole process was amazing. I loved seeing the gown come together at every fitting but most importantly, I loved the look my husband gave me when I walked down the aisle! It was truly special and I couldn’t recommend Stesha Ho highly enough!" — Teruko

"Stesha made my vision come to life when I couldn’t find what I was looking for at bridal stores. She was a dream to work with: easy to chat to, understood my style, sourced beautiful, high-quality fabrics, and worked in a timely manner. I left each appointment feeling excited and confident that she would create the dress I had dreamed up in my mind, and she did! Her passion for what she does shines through in the quality of her work. I would recommend Stesha to anyone looking for a one-of-kind piece that is perfectly fitted to their body!" — Jacqueline
