My affinity for beautiful dresses started at a young age. When choosing a dress for my First Communion, my mother had to set up a meeting with my school to get approval for the pink, tulle ball gown I had fallen in love with for the traditionally all-white event. It came as no surprise that my first job at age sixteen was at a bridal boutique. I went on to become a spokesperson for the largest prom dress retail site, in conjunction with furthering my career in the bridal industry. It is safe to say that dresses are my thing! I was born and raised in Connecticut, and I have a BA in English from UConn. I am thrilled to be able to help Connecticut brides find their perfect gown here at Modern Trousseau New Haven.
Brigitte Bardot…the hair, the makeup, the classic femininity. We also happen to share a birthday!
I love how bold brides are getting; designers have taken notice. Sheer bodices, pops of color, dense beading, 3D details…anything that makes a statement.
Gwen Stefani’s dip dye pink gown…it was perfect because it was so quintessentially her, as I believe a bride’s gown should be.
