On one of the most memorable days of a woman's life is her wedding day. Any bride who is lucky enough to dawn a McCaffrey creation will always remember how exquisite she felt in her gown. And for that, the label continues to strive and inspire moments that will be remembered forever.
Meet the man behind McCaffey's Haute Couture, David McCaffrey.
First and foremost he is a father, a partner, a friend, a brother and a son. He is a creator, a designer, a visionary, your BEST friend when you are shopping for your wedding gown. He is an inspiration to the bridal world.
I have had the pleasure of working with and watching David in action many many times. My best friend of 20 plus years Jill, got married this past summer. Given that Jill is in the industry, she wanted nothing to do with planning her own wedding as that is what she does all day long here at Weddings InStyle. This time SHE wanted a wedding planner/fairy god-mother to make all HER dreams come true.
We started talking dresses ... she wanted the best of course, so we called David and Christina and up the street to McCaffrey's we went. David and Christina greeted us warmly and in anticipation and with some feedback from Jill, had already pulled a bunch of dresses for her to try.
Unbeknownst to us, the dresses that David has selected were strategically choosen and were strategically given to try on. Jill started with what she thought was "THE" dress. David just smiled. This went on for about 4-5 dresses. Then David said, "try this" at first sight it wasn't Jill's first choice, mine neither, but when she put it on and stepped out of the dressing room we knew THIS WAS IT! She said YES to the dress that day.
From selection, to the fittings, to the added touches our experience was sheer perfection.
This is WHO he is, this is what he does. EVERYONE, I mean everyone that walks thru those doors on Sussex is made to feel like the most beautiful women alive! It doesn't matter if you are short, tall, thin or carrying a few extra pounds once David starts working his magic you on you ... look out! It's almost like self esteem classes and wedding dress shopping all rolled into one!
Each of David's Haute Couture wedding dresses is precisely crafted and in the Haute Couture tradition and made in Canada. The dress components are delicate and luxurious silk satins, taffetas, and organza's, often paired with Swarovski crystal beading, delicate feathers and the finest French laces. The incorporation of built-in corsets completes the workmanship and finishing's within the wedding dress, making it truly couture.The fashions of the McCaffrey Haute Couture label reflect an innate sense of grace, romanticism, and refinement. The wedding dresses are not specifically trend-oriented; instead the McCaffrey Haute Couture label stands for something timeless with a hint of nostalgia to the classics. This mastery of elegance is incorporated into luxurious gowns - satin draping, bias-cuts, sweeping ball skirts; each with intricate detailing and tasteful body conscious silhouettes. The wedding dresses capture elements that flatter every woman, making her feel beautiful and elegant on her most special day.
Now available to all women, David is now creating evening and cocktail wear, custom-made, perfectly crafted for the occasion.
