While I never dreamed of owning a bridal store, I fell in love with the business just two weeks into my first job in the industry. Now I can’t imagine myself doing anything else! My team and our customers are like family to me, so this job hardly feels like work. Everyone who walks through our doors becomes a friend, and we’re eager to earn your trust to become your bridal fashion BFFs.
My kids were young when I bought The Bridal Gallery, and they joined me at the store every Sunday after church. While my son worked on his homework, my daughters and I painted. Every pink stripe in the store was painted by hand. Looking at these stripes reminds me of the dreams I had when I started this business, and how grateful I am to my family and the community for supporting me in my early days.
As The Bridal Gallery grew, I added a full-service alterations department to the boutique. Again, it was a family affair, with the studio built from the ground up with the help of my dad. Later we expanded into the space next door, doubling our size. My brothers helped with the expansion. Once again, family and community played a key role in my business’s growth.
I want you to feel at home when you shop at The Bridal Gallery. We are family, and when you visit, you are family, too. I strive to offer a unique experience in our store, where you can relax and HAVE FUN. We laugh a lot, we can be silly, and we always keep it REAL.
I would like to personally invite you to come in and spend some time with us. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different wedding dress styles! Trust us a little bit! We really have been doing this for a while and we can help you look and feel amazing on your wedding day. After all, this is the most important dress you will ever wear–don’t just leave it to chance, leave it to us. You won’t be disappointed.
