what inspires you? The glitter ((verb): to shine with strong emotion; to be brilliantly attractive, lavish, or spectacular) and the grit ((noun): firmness of character; indomitable spirit; pluck) of it all! I'm driven by the need to support and encourage brides to stay true to themselves in all parts of planning their wedding, but most importantly, when selecting their dress! The wedding industry is full of people and organizations telling you what you *have to* do to make your wedding perfect. But I don’t believe in “have-to’s;” I encourage every couple to make the celebration of their union truly their own. Weddings, like marriages, can be brilliantly beautiful, but not without hard work and honesty; a little glitter, from a little grit. I love seeing all of the fresh and unique designs coming into the scene, and supporting those new and budding designers in their endeavors by helping to get their clothing and accessories in front of brides in this region. Dreams supporting dreams? A dream come true...
what do you love about weddings? I'm a huge romantic at heart, but I know that romance can come in many forms. I love how truly intimate it can all be; the sense of community and support that arises from so much love being in one place. I love when a couple's personality is reflected in every detail, and when both the glitter AND the grit of who they are is represented!
