We create contemporary, elegant designs for weddings and baptisms that honor the rich Eastern Orthodox tradition. Using the highest-quality materials (and when possible, sustainable, natural fabrics), we carefully design and construct each piece, artfully combining textures, colors and fibers. Our products are created and packaged in a smoke free environment. Each order is carefully packaged to protect our products from damage in shipping.
We do not have a physical store. But if you are in the Naperville, IL (Chicago) area you can visit our workshop and see our products. To schedule a visit, please contact us. Let us know which products you are interested in seeing (or a general idea, for example: "wedding candles") and some suggested times you would like to visit.
You can learn more about Dahlia, our shop history and Orthodox Wedding and Baptism traditions on our blog.

Terry (Eleftheria or Ελευθερἰα) was born and raised in Hania, a seaside town on the Greek island of Crete. As a teen, she moved to the United States on her own and started a new life. With many close family members and ties still in Greece, she is very attuned to Greek Orthodox culture and traditions. Along with her husband, she has raised four children now ranging in age from 17 to 25.
She started her career as a surgical nurse, practicing for 20 years. Later finding herself drawn to more artistic pursuits, she worked as an interior decorator, silk-flower designer, and faux-finish and mural artist.
