With over 40 years of experience
"My craftsmanship started at the age of sixteen..."
Eva started sewing at a young age and earned her first job in the bridal industry at the age of sixteen. After working at a local bridal shop in Stratford, Connecticut for thirteen years, she opened her own shop, Classic Brides By Eva in December of 1990.
Eva has developed her skills over the past 40 years with countless wedding dresses, bridesmaids, mother of the bride, and flower girl dresses.
After years of experience and wedding parties, Eva still finds great joy in her work. She loves her craft and is happy to be able to provide such passion to someone's special day. She is thankful for all of her customers that have supported Classic Brides and is looking forward to meeting her future brides.
