The Process

A chat over coffee

The first step always includes the time to share a cup of coffee and get to know each other. We'll talk about the details and vibe of your wedding, your budget, and most importantly, we'll explore your vision of how you want to feel that day.

We'll chat about your dreams for your wedding dress, your ideas, preferences, needs, fears, likes, dislikes, and be transformed in the next step into a selection of gowns designed by hand, just for you.

This appointment is available in person in our atelier, or via video call.

Choose your design

The next step sees all your wishes meet design features that are right for you, your body, and your wedding. The result is a series of inspired-by-you designs that explore options and variations for you to choose from.

During your second appointment we'll review your designs and together, we'll choose which perfect gown we'll bring to life. Once we've selected your gown, we'll take a full set of measurements and begin crafting your dream dress.

If you are placing your order over the internet, we will guide you in taking your measurements.

Saying yes to the dress

Once you've decided to work with us and have selected your dress, you'll receive an invitation to a private online portal where you'll find your contract and invoice.

Your order is confirmed with a 50% deposit with several payment options available.

Choosing fabrics and materials

Next, we'll choose your fabrics, a process driven by us but guided by your preferences.

Fit to deliver

Once our team has drafted your pattern, we'll prepare a sample for you to try on, helping us perfect the cut before moving forward and giving us an opportunity to make adjustments.

Your dress is perfected fitting by fitting until it is delivered to you, perfect in every way.

About Angelina

La Dolce Vita

Californian of origin, Italian by adoption.

Her love brought her to Italy and today it is her love for Soave, as a home for her, for her son, and her atelier.

A love for the bride

Angelina became a wedding dress designer almost by accident... but it seems it was always meant to be.

Even before she could sew, she drew tirelessly and designed evening gowns, without any concept of how they were made. When she finally went to fashion school, she passionately threw herself into complex gowns, more difficult fabrics and corsetry.

It was immediate and profound, her love for evening gowns. And while it's wonderful to dress a woman for fabulous event, most women will never walk a red carpet... but many, if not most, will experience being a bride.

Focusing on wedding dresses means connecting with women at a very special moment in their lives and then making a dress for them and sharing with them an experience they will never forget.

California girl

Angelina was born and raised in California, in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Working with both the glamour of Los Angeles and side by side with the creativity of the minds and culture of Silicon Valley, has created a truly unique mix of experiences and inspirations that shape our atelier to this day.

The best of the best

From the best in the tech industry (Google, Facebook, Apple...) to the top names in California sport (49ers, Warriors...) Angelina has dressed the best in the bay area in every lane.

Red carpet queen

Red Carpets from Hollywood to New York City…

Angelina and her dresses have also appeared on multiple occasions on American national TV, important magazines, and many, many red carpets.
