Vendor Spotlight: A. Cherie Couture | Custom Wedding Dress Designer in San Antonio, TX | Snap Chic Photography

Reblog – Written by Kat Roy of Snap Chic Photography


We first met Ashley of A. Cherie Couture by total chance, about two years ago when we were hired by a national magazine out of Los Angeles to photograph her for an article they were running. We took the job, not knowing a thing about her! In fact, the story we were shooting her for, had absolutely nothing to do with weddings, believe it or not it was health and weight loss feature, as Ashley had recently transformed her health and lost 60 pounds! Long story short, upon meeting her at her home for the assignment, she started telling us about how she had just moved here, and was a CUSTOM WEDDING DRESS DESIGNER?! SAY WHAT?! Like seriously, it is the coolest thing. Who else knows any custom wedding dress designers? She literally designs each and every gown completely custom for her brides and clients, starting with just a sketch and eventually evolving into the masterpieces seen below!

Needless to say, we instantly bonded and became fast friends, and now we even office next to each other in Fair Oaks Ranch! Call it what you will, but we believe it was truly fate that our paths crossed. We are so lucky to know her, and be able to refer all of our brides to this wedding gown QUEEN for the most elegantly designed custom dresses as well as alterations.

That being said, here is Ashley to tell you a little more about her business, and even a very special discount offer for Snap Chic brides!


“Hello Everyone! My name is Ashley and I am owner of A.Cherie Couture! We create completely customized wedding dresses from fully beaded designs to large ballgowns to fitted styles! We also create custom bridal accessories like veils and sashes as well as custom MOB and MOG dresses. If you can dream it, we can create it!
