First Look Veils

Connie Carlson and Julie Largent are a mother/daughter team that has been very involved in the wedding industry for many years. Julie Largent is a certified wedding planner and has been active in the business for the past 13 years. Connie Carlson has designed and sewn bridal gowns, veils, and bridesmaid dresses for over 40 years. Together we have designed and completed the wedding décor for countless couples.

We decided to take our experience and focus on one area of weddings. We both love the creative process and really enjoy making the bride's day one of the best in her life. So, we chose the bridal veil and headpiece as the area of expertise to focus on. Being a part of so many weddings and seeing tons of pictures after the event, we noticed that in most pictures of the bride, the veil is the part of her attire that is most prominent. In fact, in most close up pictures, the dress doesn't show at all with today's popularity of the strapless gown. How many times have you watched the Bridal Dress shows on TV? Have you ever noticed that when the "veil" goes on, bridal magic happens? Those who weren't sold on the dress, all of a sudden love it. Many brides don't want to wear their mother's/grandmother's dress but love having her veil to wear.

"First Look Veils strives to make our bride's veil something that she will treasure and pass down for years to come making it a cherished family heirloom."

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS (from sales not on Etsy):
"First Look Veils' design and craftsmanship were amazing, and my veil came out absolutely perfect. There is no other veil in the world that would have been this perfect, and I thank First Look Veil for that. At the wedding I received so many compliments about how dramatic, beautiful, and well made the veil was. When the women from First Look Veils came to my dress fitting and saw the style of wedding dress I was going to be wearing, they both knew exactly the type of veil that would compliment me the best. When I saw the veil for the first time, it was perfect. The hand stitched delicate lace appliqués on the border matched the color and lace on the dress perfectly. It was just stunning. I am referring every soon-to-be bride that I know to First Look Veil because I would not have trusted anyone else with something so important. I felt beautiful on my wedding day and that’s what every bride needs to feel!!
Blessings,
- Gena"

"Connie and Julie were very professional and friendly. They spent time getting to know the style of the bride and the feel of the event.

Truly works of art!" -Tyler
