My story is simple. I am a custom atelier specializing in styling and dressing clients in just the right accessories to reflect their style and personality.
The backstory is I am a bridal designer based out of East Greenwich, Rhode Island. A romantic, a bit of a perfectionist with an attraction towards refined sparkle and a soul passion for weddings. When I am not consulting, designing, steaming or stitching for clients or charitable sewing I enjoy spending time either oceanside, at our little cabin in the Vermont woods or exploring beyond my intimate world with my excentric family & dynamic friends.
While most companies begin with a business plan, Bridal Finery started with an exquisitely designed studio, complete with a showroom, workroom and a brand spanking new stereo system - all won on a dare!
Many moons ago, fresh out of college, I began my (first) career as an interior designer with an international company designing hotels and restaurants. I eventually took my talents to various classrooms including the acclaimed Rhode Island School of Design to share my knowledge.
While I thoroughly enjoyed interiors, my passion for bling, lace and tulle had me creating wedding dresses as a hobby. Through this I discovered an allure for the bridal industry.
All of my time was dedicated to interiors, teaching, and wedding dresses. In attempt to have more home cooked meals (and fill a vacant rental space) my dear husband, Steven, DARED me to leave my careers and follow my passion. It’s been a whirlwind and array of glittering crystals, beads, baubles and scrumptious fabrics.
Fast forward 20 + years, thousands of clients, industry awards and peer accolades, I still greet each client with a song in my heart (though the stereo system has been replaced with Pandora!)
