“I was at The Ultimate yesterday and I got a beautiful short Sherri Hill dress. Gina helped us and she was awesome! I was debating whether or not to get the dress and she was super patient and understanding. I ended up getting the dress and I just want her to know how much I love it! I'm absolutely obsessed so thank you and thank you Gina!!”
