Hi! My name is Amity, and I am the owner/designer of Marbella Couture. I have to say that I just absolutely LOVE my job. The endless amount of creativity, the joy that I get to see in women at the most special time in their life, and making people happy is my passion and my own joy in life. I love what I do because what I do is make bride's happy by working with them to design their dream-wedding gown. I love the happiness that brides get when they show me four pictures of gowns that they have tried on or found in magazines (and love one aspect of each dress) and tell me to put all of those aspects into their dream-wedding gown. I genuinely love the expression on their face when I say, "OK! Let's DO IT!" and they smile from ear to ear because what they want can actually be done. I am a friendly, caring, honest person, friend, and designer. It is my joy in life to create, especially create Wedding Gowns. So if you are engaged and want a Wedding Gown that only you will wear in this lifetime, please give me a call or shoot me an email- I would LOVE to work with you!
How did I get started? My husband is actually the one who gave me the idea to start my own business. We were living in Chicago at the time and got engaged in Chicago. When I was thinking about where I as going to buy my wedding gown he said, “Why don’t you just make it?” It never crossed my mind to make my own wedding gown. Along with my own wedding gown, I ended up making 13 other dresses for my own wedding, 9 bridesmaids, 3 flower girls, and a rehearsal dinner dress. I thought to myself if I can do all of this while planning my own wedding and working full time, I could own my own company! When I graduated from college, my husband took me to Spain and we traveled all over the country. We went to the most beautiful city on the Mediterranean in the southern part of Spain, called Marbella. I will never forget that beautiful, romantic place and that’s why I named my company after it!
