Patty Smulsky. . . Patty is a rockstar. As an older bride I was nervous about trying on dresses. I expressed this to Patty on the phone when confirming my appointment and she was so kind, reassuring me and promising to help me. When we walked in that day, literally one year ago today, she was the first person I saw and she already had a selection for me to try. I knew it was my dress the minute I tried it on.
