charlene2Thank you for visiting my boutique!!

La Boutique Bride started in my family room on February 2013.

I have a long history and education with fashion merchandising, design and everything bridal.

For 17 years I owned and operated a very successful Bridal business, custom designed dresses for Brides. Mother of the Brides, brides maids and flower girls. The bridal salon was a 24/7 job. I opened at the age of 23 and went right through the birth of my children and life changes….I closed the salon because I was also a full time mom and family always came first…. as my children grew I closed the shop.

After many years just making and decorating anything I could get my hands on the bridal industry was always a lost love of mine and I had missed the passion and not being able to create and design the items that I loved!

After many conversations and encouragement from my wonderful husband…..La Boutique Bride was born 🙂

Every piece, bead, sequin, design applique and creation is a part of what I love about the industry that inspires me on a daily basis.
Elegance and shimmer…what girl doesn’t love that!

I try to make pieces to fit every wedding style and occasion and various price ranges.

The baby shoes I design are just something that give me great pleasure to make, as I remember how difficult it was to find something like this many years ago for my own children. I was always designing shoes for my daughter and beading communion dresses and shoes for her and I continue to do so today.

I take great pride in my workmanship and use only the finest of materials. Constantly shopping and searching for just the right laces and materials.

I design and hand make every single piece and some days its a long process but I love fulfilling that need for the new mom with that beautiful baby girl or the bride that just cant find the right shoe or accessory.

When I receive that message from my brides or mom and they tell me that their shoes are the most beautiful shoes they have ever seen, that long work day doesn’t seem so bad….and thats why I do it!

I am always introducing new pieces and love the challenge of a custom design to match any bridal gown or christening dress.

Thank you to all of our brides for your many photos.

Much love and luck ~
