TBC Bride To TBC Bridal Stylist

Not long after Erin found her wedding dress at The Bridal Collection, we added her to our team as a bridal stylist. Her contagious laughter, warm and welcoming spirit, and ability to befriend anyone within 30 seconds are just a few reasons we knew that she would be the perfect fit at our Denver bridal shop. Since then, Erin has helped numerous brides find the wedding dress of their dreams while having a wonderful time doing so. One of her brides raved, “{Erin} was so sweet and fun to work with, she helped me so much, and made the experience even better, and very easy.” The Bridal Collection feels so grateful to not only have Erin as a TBC bride, but also on our team.

How He Asked

Erin says that Dan has always been really good at planning special dates that he knows she will love. The two shared a perfect day in Los Angeles followed by the happiest surprise! First, Dan took Erin to a Broadway show. Afterwards, they went out for drinks followed by dinner at a romantic little French restaurant. Finally, he took her to the Griffith Observatory. It turned out there was some special stargazing event that night, so the grounds of the observatory were packed with people and their telescopes! Dan managed to find possibly the only spot in the whole area that was secluded – under the trees, overlooking all of the twinkling nighttime lights of L.A.  When they reached the spot, Dan got down on one knee and asked Erin to be his wife.

Favorite Memory

Erin recalls the intimate moments exchanging vows as her favorite memory of their wedding day. As many brides can relate, she was easily swept into the details of the reception – not leaving much time to think about the ceremony. Dan and Erin had decided to write their own vows separately and share them for the first time on their wedding day. To her surprise, the vows were similar and the promises they made were nearly identical. This special confirmation of their shared values was a moment Erin will always treasure.

The Dress

Erin found her wedding dress at The Bridal Collection in Denver. The sleek and sexy silk organza wedding gown by Martina Liana was romantic and ultra-flattering. The curved seaming and fabric-covered buttons all the way to the end of the train combined classic bridal beauty with modern construction. Brides who select a Martina Liana designer wedding dress make a statement that exemplifies the style, the attitude, and the elegance of the woman they are. Erin did just that in a stunningly beautiful way.
