I am so glad you are here!
In my opinion, the most important part of your bridal shopping should be the EXPERIENCE you have. One of my favorite quotes in existence is by Maya Angelou. “People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel.” Those words are cherished to me because people deserve to be adored. Everyone who comes through my door deserves the “moment” whether it be the bride’s mother figure, father figure, sibling, grandparent or aunt. This is about so much more than an ivory gown.
In my store is a beautiful lavender wall. It’s not beautiful because of the color or the expanse of it. It’s beautiful because you’ll find it covered in the handwriting of my girls. Their names, the names of their future spouses, their wedding dates…their adorable and witty hashtags…they’re sometimes messy from hands that shake. A mom once asked me why they were there. It’s quite simple. It’s my way of keeping them around. Making the feeling last. Solidifying a moment of pure bliss. It happens so rarely in life and it’s something I don’t ever want to forget having had with them.
The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.
