In the pampering surroundings of Joan Gilbert's atelier, you are the only bride in the room.

One of San Francisco’s exclusive collections of Le Spose di Gio wedding gowns along with select European designs are ready for your personal viewing at Joan Gilbert Bride’s atelier in San Francisco. Joan’s sunny atelier, decorated with an eclectic mix of French antiques, fine art, and architectural elements reflects the designer’s vision that every dress be unique and extraordinary.

An elevated platform in front of a floor-to-ceiling French antique mirror is where you and your designer will get to know each other and enjoy the playful artistry of the design process. Here is where Joan will translate your  treasure map of ideas into a single vision only a trained designer can articulate. Draping, tucking, cinching, and sampling a variety of techniques, Joan will bring your wedding gown inspiration to life.

In Joan Gilbert Bride’s atelier, you won’t look like every other Cinderella bride, but Joan believes you still ought to be treated like one.
