Meagan Boyd-Hicks

It was my distinct honor to have been chosen by Meagan Boyd Hicks as her wedding gown/bridesmaids dresses/tux provider.  I first met Meagan when she was probably a sophomore or junior in high school; and here she is graduating from college and getting married to a fine young man!!  How time flies.  This is just one picture of Meagan from her pre-bridal photoshoot and it is a stunning shot!  Photography by Terry's Studio, Coeburn, VA.

This is Meagan's sweet and flattering review of the time spent planning her wedding ensemble:
"Throughout the years I have purchased many prom & pageant gowns from Tricia's. The first time I met her I immediately liked her as a person and I respected her honesty. She and I have spent numerous hours in conversation. Because of the relationship we established, I was determined to purchase my wedding gown from her. I visited her shop a few times before I found "the dress". The rest of the wedding process fell into place. However, with anyone but Tricia, this process would have been much more difficult. In my particular experience, there were a few obstacles that Tricia refused to let alter my wedding day. She had a solution to everything; it's almost like she was my very own bridal assistant. I am so glad she was a part of my wedding; because there is no one else that is as reliable, as personable, and as talented when making sure your special day is how you dreamed it."

The gorgeous Misty Bentley Moore Bridal Pictures.

Thanks to Misty Bentley Moore of Seco, KY for the following gracious comments concerning her experience at Tricia's by Design.  I am also adding some beautiful photography by Michael S. Wade Photographers who did her pre-bridal shoot and her wedding pictures.  All images were shot on location at New Canton Plantation in Hawkins County, TN. 

"Tricia's by Design can only be described in one word "wonderful", but then there

is also fabulous, stunning, amazing, the best, I guess in some situations one
word just doesn't always cover it. Tricia goes above and beyond to make sure
that you find your dream wedding dress and that it fits perfectly. It's very
obvious that Tricia is someone who takes great pride in her work and really
loves what she does and it definitely shows. I'm a very indecisive person, but
she was always patient, caring, helpful and most importantly made me feel like I
was family and definitely getting the dress of my dreams. She has the ability
to know exactly what looks great and how to make it look even greater. I can
honestly say the only bad thing about purchasing your wedding gown from Tricia's
by Design is that you miss Tricia when the wedding is over, I know I do!!"

Misty chose for her bridal gown a beautiful vintage-look lace on point d'esprit gown that featured a sweetheart neckline and fit-and-flare silhouette.  Wanting just a bit more "bling", Misty opted to have some customization done to the gown.  We added hand-sewn Swarovski lochrosen rhinestones to the neckline and a crystal rhinestone brooch to the center of the gown.

We had a FABULOUS time Tuesday night with all the trunks and trunks of jewelry.  Several clients came by to meet Jim Ball, the King of Bling, and see a lot of new jewelry designs.  Thanks to all who came and for those who missed the event due to vacation, sickness, and conflicting schedules, we plan to do this again sometime perhaps in Sept. or Oct.  2010!  For those of you who need fabulous bling, WE GOT IT!!! Lots of new stuff for bridal and pageant--pearls, Swarovski crystals and CZs--we got 'em all.
