What makes you passionate about bridal?
Weddings are an intimate, substantial milestone in a person's life. Two people have chosen a best friend, life partner, soul mate to pledge their unconditional and eternal love. Whether it's added sparkle in the hair, jewels on the wrist or a dainty necklace accent, I feel honored that my designs are worn by brides on such a momentous, jovial day celebrated with their family and friends.
How do you approach design?
There is something magical about bridal accessories and how their details can be that finishing touch for a wedding ensemble. And it is through those details that headpieces and jewelry are brought to life here at USABride. I envision that all of our pieces will one day be worn by a loving bride celebrating happily ever after and account for every detail along the way--from the aesthetics to the functionality. Our team analyzes every element from style to stone placement and we even try on each sample to ensure the piece looks and fits perfectly.
What are the top priorities for the USABride team?
Aside from assuring the quality and selection of our pieces, the relationship we have with brides is key. Whether on the phone, through email or in-store, we work to share the same visions as the brides that shop with us to select the perfect accessories that will help complete their bridal look. Our stylists have an intimate knowledge of every piece--from materials to coordinating colors and even how to best incorporate into a hairstyle--and vow to go above and beyond when helping each bride.

What makes you passionate about bridal?
It's wonderful being a part of so many happily ever afters. I genuinely love connecting with brides. It's no secret that wedding planning can be both a joyous and taxing experience. Helping them through the journey and taking some of the stress away is what I enjoy most. Seeing photos after the wedding and hearing their feedback and stories makes my job at USABride especiallyrewarding. It's why I've fallen in love with what I do day in and day out.
You work with many brides, but are there any experiences that stand out?
Of course, I love helping all brides. However, it's inevitable that some brides may experience obstacles in wedding planning. I've worked with several who have needed to move up a wedding date to accommodate family members or active members of the military. I fully understand this may be stressful and will do anything I can to help their wedding day style dreams come true.

What do you love most about bridal?
My love affair with bridal began at my sister's Quinceanera. The gown she wore, glamorous heels from my father and elegant crown from my mother all reminiscent of a wedding piqued my interest. Although I am not at this stage in my life, I love to pour through all of the details that make up a wedding and have a genuine appreciation for the elements--from the sash that accompanies a bridesmaid dress to the jewelry set that matches.
