Almost 10 years ago, Anna met Maddie in a staircase in an apartment building in Florence, Italy, when they were both studying abroad their junior year! Several years later, they both found themselves living in Denver and looking for a roommate! Tah-daaah! Fast forward to 2021 when Anna got engaged to Alex and began looking for THE DRESS.

She wanted a long and elegant train, full skirt, dropped shoulder and neckline that would magically transform into a slim silhouette and a thigh high slit for dancing the night away!

Easier said than done, unless of course, your friend from the Florence staircase just happened to be studying Apparel Design + Production and had spent time as an in-house private label designer for a wedding boutique! Enter Maddie who was absolutely thrilled to step in and design the wedding dress Anna had been dreaming of! Love how photographer Mat Schramm captured it all!

We think Anna was an absolutely stunning bride in her bespoke wedding dress! From the look on his face, Alex did too!

Many thanks to Mat Schramm Photo for capturing images of Anna + Alex’s beautiful wedding day and this dear story of two friends! M Rose Couture accepts a limited number of commissions each year. For more information on commissioning your own bespoke wedding dress, please direct message thru M Rose Couture on Instagram.
