The Power of Love is on Your Side Don’t Lose Sight As many store owners have said to me, and as I experienced myself when I owned a bridal salon, we sometimes change hats from a bridal expert to a personal therapist and we do it willingly and compassionately. Wedding...read more
Small Business is American Why You Should Support Your Local Bridal Boutique When I was 6 years old, I started my first business (sort of). It was the 1970’s and neighborhood Christmas parties were almost expected at every household. I had the idea to cut mistletoe...read more
One of my favorite times working with a Bride was several years ago, during filming of a pilot episode for a reality show called “The Veil Trail.” The show was not a success (it was way too nice with no “train wreck”) but the bride and her story were a huge success....read more
