Today I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Janell Berte. I had to see what all the buzz was about behind that infamous red door! Her salon was beautiful and even more beautiful were the gowns! The fabric, the lace, the jewels, everything about the gowns were amazing. Janell was so welcoming and so warm. Thank you so much Janell for meeting with me and for the ever so yummy crepe and cup of joe at Rachel's Cafe! I can't wait to go back. All you girls in search of the perfect gown, if you want something truly inspiring and beautiful, please make an appointment with her. You will not be dissapointed. Gowns start at $1500-$2000. You can read all about her and look at her wonderful designs at www.berte.com. You can also see, from a post back in October, one of my past brides, Deb Cooper, is wearing a gown by Janell! She looked stunning.
