MEET THE OWNERS
"The reason I love owning a bridal store is because I love being able to create a special but approachable experience for our brides and their guests. I started working for a wedding photographer shortly after my own wedding (a million years ago) and have only worked in the wedding industry since! I’m married to Ryan and live in Mesa, AZ. We have two boys Hudson + Fynn and our fur children are Roxy + Hunter. When I am not working I love to travel, go to concerts, eat good food, binge watch tv, workout, & cheer loudly for the Phoenix Suns. Obviously our business is wedding dresses, but I really see our purpose as empowering women. The bridal gown industry has had a reputation for not being open and transparent and that leaves brides feeling uncertain about the most important piece of clothing they’ll ever wear. We want our brides to feel fully empowered and confident about their dress, their alteration process, their next steps, etc. And for our team members, I want them to be empowered to answer any question a bride may have and to find creative solutions to any obstacles a bride may encounter."
"The reason I love owning a bridal store is because I love our team. We work with the best people. Our staff cares so deeply about our brides and making sure they have a Brilliant life moment. I used to sit in my college classes sketching wedding gowns. When I went shopping for my own gown, I was surprised that the consultants I worked with in multiple stores didn’t seem excited. I then decided to jump into the bridal industry and celebrate brides to give them what I didn’t have when shopping for my gown. I’ve been doing that ever since. I am married to Clark and live in Arvada, CO. We have three fun, outgoing, loud kids - Riley, Deacon, & Trace and our sweet little dog Lexi. When I am not working, I spend time with my kids, family, and friends. I love attending Red Rocks concerts, driving to Breckenridge (my favorite ski town), and spending time in Boulder, SKO Buffs! The world is full of hard things. I hope Brilliant Bridal is a light spot in that sometimes complex world. I hope brides and their guests feel better and more beautiful after they leave our stores. I hope that no matter what is happening in the world, our brides have the best time when they say yes to their dress."
