Designer Feature: Sara Gabriel

Our love affair with Sara Gabriel began almost 10 years ago, just as we were opening
anna bé and learning all about bridal accessories.  Over the years, her collection has been essential for anna bé brides looking to elevate their wedding day look.  From painstakingly crafted veils using exclusive fabrics and laces to jewelry & accessories that flow perfectly with the anna bé gown collection, Sara’s pieces are among our favorites in the shop!  And, to top it off, Sara’s collection is made right here in Denver.

One of the things we love about Sara is that she occasionally attends trunk shows to meet with brides, and uses real bride feedback to help grow her collection (trust us, very few designers actually do this!!).  Each piece is then made “completely by hand, one at a time and just for you from beginning to end. Every veil is individually cut, every crystal is hand placed and every lace appliqué attached one at a time”.  Want to get to know Sara a little better?  See below!
