Why We Like Them
Whether shopping the Valena Valentina Couture collection or working with this talented designer to create a wedding dress from scratch, brides find a warm welcome at this stylish La Jolla bridal salon.
Quality Couture: “I want every bride to feel like royalty,” says designer Elena Ham, who named her company after her mother. Drawing on her European background and fashion training, Elena crafts her memorable looks from luxurious lace and silks, meticulously finished with romantic details. Brides don’t have to worry about alterations, either, as each gown is expertly tailored to enhance a bride’s unique beauty.
Trustworthy & Caring: Elena has a reputation for putting her heart and soul into each of her gowns. “Elena stands behind every one of her dresses,” says an industry expert who’s worked with her for several years. Another salon owner we contacted agrees: “This designer has great integrity.” Brides also report that working with Elena was a stress-free experience.
Signature Look: Valena Valentina is known for confident gowns with figure-flattering silhouettes. “A lot of her signature bridal gowns are sleek, form-fitting and sexy,” says a bridal salon owner we spoke with. Another professional points out that “Elena has really mastered a certain style that brides love, and she has modified this fitted, hand-folded trumpet gown to perfection.”
Collaboration: One of the secrets to Elena’s success is that she’s a keen listener, able to interpret what her customers want—and then deliver it. “Elena really listened to what I wanted in a dress,” shares one custom client. “We designed my dress together.” Other pluses include her willingness to stick to a bride’s budget, and also respect the agreed-upon timeline. A recent bride was pleasantly surprised by this: “Start to finish, we were done in two months!”
“Her dresses are of the highest quality and all are delivered fitting the brides beautifully.”
