I will call her "Angeleina"..............
Two weeks ago "Angeliena" had booked an appointment for her wedding dress. Accompanying her was her Mother, and her sister. They heard about Collezione Fortuna Fashion Boutique and Bridals on Facebook and drove 2 hours one way for their appointment.
Before the appointment I had a wonderful phone Consultation with her Mother. I learned how proud her family was of her accomplishments, because the Bride-to-be is an albino, and vision impaired unable to see color and detail. She also recently graduated with High Honors from a State University with an MBA in Nursing and was starting a new job soon.
This is indeed an amazing young woman!
When we met, I found a happy, loving, spirit within her, and a smile that lighted up the room. She selected the dresses she wanted to try on and I realized her other senses compensated for her vision impairment.
Each dress she tried on had a meaning to her. She felt each detail with her hands and fingers and she explained every detail to us exactly how we saw it. We went thru the "process of elimination" of each dress.
Toward the end of the appointment there was one dress staring at me in the face. I knew instinctively she had to try it on..and of course, she did. It was a lace dress..one very different than the others...it was going to be "the one" for sure!
I helped her out of the dressing room and onto the podium, and she started feeling the dress on her..and tears started rolling down her cheeks..
"This is the one..this is my dress I want to be married in".....and there were more tears.....of joy..pass the kleenex..please..because we all got so emotional.
"Angeliena" went home with her dream dress. She was thrilled!
I meet people in all facets of their life, but I never met anyone like Angeliena. With all obstacles in her way she will always be a special person to me. I wish her the best for her future and a happy marriage.
This really makes my job worthwhile knowing that I have made them feel special and I also learned another lesson to enrich my life. I also know if you want to accomplish a goal in your life, don't let anyone or anything stop you.
