Sara Ann Viola
Manager/Bridal Stylist, AKA The “Wedding Dress Whisperer”
Sara has a real passion for fashion. At an early age, she fearlessly dove into the highly competitive New York fashion scene. First, working as a make-up artist which later led to a successful career in cosmetics. Then, in 2000, she made the leap into the bridal industry styling wedding dresses for brides. Thanks to her love of romance and her flair for design her decision proved to be the right one and she thrived. But it wasn’t until Della Curva opened its doors 2013 that she found her calling. For Sara, working with curvy brides and helping them find the perfect dress, is the most fulfilling occupation she could have ever dreamed of. If you ask her about her favorite part of what she does, she will say that she takes great pride in empowering all of her brides to see their true beauty.
“Love comes at any age and any size and finding the perfect dress should be a wonderful experience.” – Sara
Ruby has always been a true romantic. A girl who loves love! So naturally, her passion for true love led her straight to Della Curva and styling wedding dresses for the curvy bride. Okay, that may be a bit of an exaggeration but when you meet Ruby you will realize that it’s not that far from the truth. In the Fall of 2007, Ruby took her first job in bridal (coincidentally, at our other store Lili Bridals) and has never looked back. And when Della Curva opened in 2013, we stole her away from them. Ruby’s warm and compassionate nature instantly bonds her with her brides and her uncanny ability to find the right dress solidifies her place as one of the best bridal stylists in the business.
