ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) Think about all the work that goes into making a bride feel perfect on her special day. From the pair of earrings, to the wedding dress, all the way down to the right pair of shoes – the vision is all in the details.
Terrisa Vaughn is one of those people who turns brides’ dreams into reality. So, it’s no surprise that she would own a business called Her Perfect Day. One of Vaughn's specialties is creating custom gowns.
"I started sewing when I was a teenager and just loved it," said Vaughn. "I love fabric. I get excited in a fabric store. I used to take my little sisters all the time. They hated going because they know I'll be in there all day just looking at fabrics. And I can see a fabric and I'll be like this is what I want to do with this fabric," she explained.
There’s a lot of time that goes into creating the perfect gown. Every stitch is a labor of love. But the exciting part is when it’s time for the big reveal.
"I think that's the best part -- seeing them in the finished work and just loving it," said Vaughn.
That’s when Vaughn gets confirmation that she’s walking in her purpose.
"And then you're like OK Lord, you have me here for a reason this is what I was meant to do," Vaughn said.
