2014 was another great year for Victoria Sdoukos Couture Bridal.  I have so many people to thank for making it a productive & positive year.  The year gone by started off with some amazing editorial features from Debi Lilly @ A Perfect Event, Crain's Business & Splash.  Following a fun debut with Vince Gerasole from CBS2 covering highlights of a live fitting at the boutique, a great morning segment on WGN at City View Loft featuring some of my designs, A Perfect Event & Pure Kitchen Catering, & an educational sit-down on the Steve Harvey Show talking business with Tabetha Coffey.  Also early in the year I participated for the 2nd time in wonderful Bridal Fete event, hosted by Leah Hamilton & met with some amazing bakeries in the city that made beautiful creations to coordinate with my gowns.  It was wonderful to once again work with Carasco, the amazingly talented couple that captured the gorgeous imagery that was at Bridal Fete. Spring was full of shoots at The Hellenic museum, City View Loft &  Kaiser Tiger.  I met some amazing hair & makeup maestros from Ramsay Marston who can make your hair look like a pinup model!  Thanks also to Amy Banas flawless makeup - what a talent!  Extremely thankful for fabulous features in Splash, CS Brides & Chicago Bride.  Wrapping up the year I did a couple more shoots with Tamara Gruner Photography, Megan SaulAndre LaCour.   I was also very fortunate to make new contacts and work with people that brought a different perspective to my work, which is always so inspiring to me as an artist!  In between hosting my beautiful brides in my Madison shop & sewing new gowns 2014 was a year that often found me as one busy woman!  I worked hard to make it all happen but couldn't do any of it without my wonderful family and friends.  A special shout out to my fiancĂ©, sister & family for their continued support. I would also like to thank Oliver Dogwood Floral Co. for providing many beautiful bouquets at many of my shoots, Lati from Bridal Beauty SalonLatoya De'Shaun, Caroline Shaw The Wedding Dresser, Cathy Demetropoulos, Constantine James HaritosTasia Apostopolous & of course all my Lovely Brides!!!
