The With Love Bridal Team

Dana

Describe your bridal style.
I love classic fabrics like a rich mikado satin or a buttery soft crepe with a plunging v or clean square neckline.

Favourite designer in the WL collection and why.
Morilee Bridal captures the essence of every Bride. From whimsical details, classic couture to modern lines, I love how Madeline Gardner designs with every body shape, personal style, and budget in mind.

Who or what is on your playlist right now?
I am a country girl at heart. Maren Morris, Luke Combs, Zach Bryan.

When you’re not busy killing it at WL what are you doing?
I love being a baseball/hockey Mom, cuddling my rescue Rottie and lunch dates with the girls.

What advice would you give to a bride looking for her dress?
I think it is important to be comfortable in your own skin and shop for a style that is a reflection of who you really are. I don’t think shopping for your wedding dress is the time to reinvent your style. You want your gown to speak to your personal style, while it may of course be an elevated look from your every day. You want to feel like your most beautiful self on your wedding day.
