Lynne & Aaron

I call Lynne my "Emergency Bride"! With 3 weeks to her weddding, Lynne came to me desperately in need of help with her gown. The person who created her gown did not understand the basics of design or fabrication. Needless to say, Lynne was extremely distraught and in a bind and needed a new gown. Usually, I don't take on the creation of a gown with anything less than a 4 month time frame, but, Lynne convinced me. I could completely understand her frustration and imagine this is just 3 weeks until her actual wedding day! So, with the clock ticking, I went for it! We actually tore apart her old dress and used it to make new patterns, creating a brand new gown!
Long story short...Lynne was very, very happy...and I think I now have two friends for life...Lynne and her wonderful husband Aaron! If you ever see Lynne ask her about all the other craziness that occured on her wedding...that story will fill up a completely new page.

Best of Pasadena!

Thank you to Pasadena Magazine! Alina Pizzano couture bridal has been named "Best Custom Dream Gown" in their Style section! We are very excited and honored to be noted as a stand out among so much competition here in Pasadena and it's surrounding areas. Even as we have grown into our larger location, my vision of creating custom wedding gowns for my clients has not been altered. In fact, when you visit the Alina Pizzano Studio, you will experience not only the "Best Custom Gown", but one-on-one personal attention from me and my staff and sparkling lemonade to boot!

Samantha & Curtis

Here is the first of what I hope will turn into a showcase of my beautiful Brides as they and their new husbands are captured on their Wedding Day! This is Samantha & Curtis...

Samatha's gown is a side-gathered trumpet gown, made from double faced satin and with an embroidered organza train. The design on the train is a modern take on a lotus flower that we designed specifically per Samantha's request. In Indian culture, the lotus symbolizes divine beauty, purity, potency , and wealth...all wonderful traits to be associated with every wedding and marriage! All of the bead work on the gown was hand done in our Studio here in Pasadena.

It's always extremely gratifying to see how happy my Brides are on their special day!
