What is a favorite TV show that you recently watched or binged?
I really loved the Queen’s Gambit. I watched the whole season three times. I loved Beth Harmon’s character development and her journey to find a sense of community and family. I was also obsessed with the 60’s clothing and overall style of the show.
What person did you meet or reconnect with last year that had the most profound impact on you?
I reconnected with my grandmother Marlene over the summer. I hadn’t seen her since high school, but with everything going on, I felt compelled to reach out to her. She was a writer, and she mailed me stories about when she was a little girl and poems about her wedding day. She passed away in November. For Christmas I received a copy of her memoir, it will always be very special to me.
What is a favorite bridal trend that has emerged in the last couple of years?
Two words: Bishop Sleeves. I just think they’re so soft and whimsical, and I love that some of our designers are making it possible to do a detachable sleeve.
What is your current favorite dress in the salon and why?
I’m obsessed with Armeria! I love that it’s simple AND edgy AND romantic. It’s a modern princess dream come true, and my brides are always so surprised by how much they love it once they have it on!
What is the first thing you are looking forward to doing once the pandemic is officially deemed over?
I would immediately host a game night with cocktails. I miss having a low key night-in with my friends. I also used to meet up with my girlfriends at a brewery to watch the Bachelor on Monday’s. I really miss those nights.
